Summary: Evelyn Salt is a CIA Agent (played by Angelina Jolie – Wiki – IMDB). Her boss is Ted Winter (played by Liev Schrieber – Wiki – IMDB). They are about to leave for the day, when a ‘walker’ comes in and defects. The walker says, “A Russian spy will kill the President of Russia in New York City, as the Funeral of the Vice President of the US”.
In short, they think he’s just bullshitting and the interrogation teams tells Agent Salt to wrap it up, and just as Agent Salt is walking out the walker says:
Walker: “Don’t you want to know the name of the Russian spy – the name of the spy is Evelyn Salt“
Agent Salt: “My name is Evelyn Salt“
Walker: “Then you are a Russian spy“
Protocol demands that Agent Salt be brought in for questioning by a counter-espioinage department whose Agent-In-Charge is Agent Peabody (played by Chiwetel Ejiofor – Wiki – IMDB), to determine if she is a mole or a double-agent. Well, you really did not think she was just going to give herself in – no, if that were to happen, it would be a pretty short movie.
She runs out and then all hell breaks loose. I am not going to spoil it for you – but there is an amazing twist in the end.
