Angelina Jolie creates a Bourne in a C-cup as Evelyn Salt, a CIA operative who goes on the run after a Russian defector outs her as a Soviet sleeper spy. Hopping across freeway traffic, diving off subway trains and fisticuffing all-comers, she has to deploy all her skills as a covert spook to elude
