* AssassinationAttempt: TheMole succeeds in moving the President and his retinue into the subterranean bunker below the White House. There, he is able to wrest away a pistol from a treasury agent, and massacres almost everyone, including the President. Using the corpse's thumbprint, TheMole is able to initiate the nuclear launch protocol. It's up to DoubleReverseQuadrupleAgent Evelyn Salt to regain control of the command bunker and issue a stand-down order.



* ReCut: Apart from the theatrical version, there's a Director's Cut and an Extended Cut, each with its own ending (the former has [[spoiler:a voice-over implying Salt is dead, and [[TheBadGuyWins the new president is a covert Russian agent]]]], and the latter [[spoiler:Salt escaping from the FBI, and leaving for Russia, where she kills Orlov - the scene with his death in the barge was cut - and destroys the facility where new agents are being created]])

* LatexPerfection: Toned down to somewhat realistic level when Salt is disguised as a guy. A guy that still has her facial structure and overall shape of face.


Added DiffLines:

* NonLethalWarfare: A ''lot'' of it and all justified, since Salt is trying to prove her innocence and it would be hard to do so after murdering so many people that tried to stop her. Until [[spoiler: Mike is drowned]], Salt uses only non-lethal attacks, knocking her enemies out or beating them unconscious. This even icludes using fire-arms, which are used as last resort and strictly to take people out of combat, not to kill them. When she starts killing, [[spoiler: her targets are strictly limited to the sleeper agents]].

She started as a KGB, later SVR, SleeperAgent inserted into the United States as a child and joined the CIA, then gets outed by her own SVR handler as part of ThePlan and goes on the lam. Problem was, she'd [[GoingNative gone native]] after her American husband pulled out all the stops to get her freed after she was captured in North Korea on a CIA assignment, and after they kidnap and later murder him, she fakes carrying out her part of the sleeper agents' plan, kills her handler, then infiltrates the infiltrators to completely wreck their attempt to start WorldWarIII.]]
