As a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt swore an oath to duty, honor and country. Her loyalty will be tested when a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy. Salt goes on the run, using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture. Salt’s efforts to prove her innocence only serve to cast doubt on her motives, as the hunt to uncover the truth behind her identity continues and the question remains: “Who is Salt?” [IMDB]
I saw the trailer some time back and it looks interesting… so I went and watch it last week. After watching the movie, I feel disappointed. The actions are not that great/exciting and the story is not like the one I expected from the trailer. The story is just plain and nothing special… maybe a bit of twist, but kinda predictable. If you are interested in action movie with shooting, chasing, etc…, then maybe you can give this a try.
Dom Cobb is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible-inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming. [IMDB]
Wow… I didn’t expect that this movie can be this good. At first, I didn’t plan to watch this coz I watched the trailer before and I don’t really get the story. But anyway, I still went and watch it. :p Basically the story is about “dream”. People like Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) can enter other people’s dream. Getting information from the “victim’s” dream is called “extraction”. To plant/injection your idea into the “victim’s” dream is called “inception”. So, in this movie Cobb is tasked to incept a dream with his team members.
The story and effects are very nice in this movie. The concept of the movie is similar to The Matrix. I recommend you to watch “Memento” if you like this movie. It is another movie by Christopher Nolan (the director of this movie).
