The first peek at Angelina Jolie’s Salt has a serious Russian accent. That’s not just because Jolie plays a CIA officer who may or may not be a a Russian sleeper agent (shades of No Way Out). The first online trailer is actually for the film’s Russian release, so have fun with the dialogue, apparently dubbed by Nikolai Volkoff.
The film’s action transcends any language barrier, nyet? Director Phillip Noyce (Patriot Games) seems to be borrowing heavily from the Bourne films, and Jolie has a solid track record as an action star (though her Matrix-climb-the-wall-drop-kick at 1:41 was rather low on the vertical).
Are you smitten with Jolie in any language? Does Salt, out in the U.S. next July, solidify her as the only bankable female action hero?
