Director: Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck. Cast: Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Paul Bettany, Timothy Dalton, Rufus Sewell. 103 min. Rated PG-13. USA/France. Action/Drama/Romance.
A degenerate piece of junk. Including Salt, Jolie starred in two bad action movies last year, and on this one, the worse one, she also brings Depp (whom I once admired for never doing bad films) along for the ride. von Donnersmarck, who created the 2006 masterpiece, The Lives of Others, has succumbed to making one of the worst films of the year (just because Hollywood does that to people), and Depp and Jolie participate in some of the most boring action sequences ever filmed. Would you believe if I said I predicted the ending during the first 15 minutes?
