Time Out says
It’s a pulpy, weakly political yarn that strains to maintain momentum by concealing Salt’s true allegiance, although small, not very subtle details (‘Why the hell didn’t she just shoot me back there?!’) essentially reveal which flag she’s flying. Australian director Noyce has pedigree in this field, specifically his ’90s Jack Ryan movies ‘Patriot Games’ and ‘Clear and Present Danger’, yet the focus here is less on creating a credible set of characters and motives than on manufacturing an excuse to have Jolie leapfrog between high-speed lorries. There is the odd moment of exhilaration, such as a vertiginous shot of Salt clinging to the side of an apartment block having evaded her captors, though mostly Noyce demonstrates little feel for movement, rhythm or flow, often allowing fights, chases and ideas to deflate just at the point you feel they should be hitting a higher gear.
