YMMV: Salt
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: When Salt jumps over the balcony in order to snap Ted's neck with her handcuffs.
  • Fridge Logic: Quite a few cases, but perhaps the most notable - The President was awake when Winter revealed his evilness and while this wouldn't necessarily prove Salt's innocence it, in combination with the many other factors, could easily clear her name.
    • The Director's Cut explicitly says the President was killed, changing the ending considerably.
    • The scene where she checks into a hotel under a false name wearing a jacket she stole. Once she's in the room she goes into the bathroom and removes her false teeth and colored contact lenses, demonstrating how she is Crazy-Prepared. At first you watch and you're like "Wow she's a master of disguise! I didn't even notice the (now obvious) fake facial features!!" but then you realise that the reason you didn't notice her disguise is because she looked exactly the same' and was completely recognisable.
      • But it becomes Fridge Brilliance when you realize that she wasn't wearing those things to disguise herself from her pursuers... she was wearing them as part of her cover, in order to resemble the real Evelyn Salt, the American girl she replaced as a child.
  • Genius Bonus: As you may have noticed, the title is in all-caps on the disc case, so it looks suspiciously like SALT.
    • Strategic Arms Limitation? Well, there are plenty of weapons floating around in this movie. And it involves both the US and Russia.
    • Of course, a sequel would be named SALT II. Ring any bells?
  • Moral Event Horizon: When Orlov commands one of his men to shoot Mike, and when Ted plans to nuke major Islamic cities in order to incite rage within the Muslim community.
  • Narm:
    • At one point Salt is disguised as a man. It looks as ridiculous as it sounds.
    • On the silly latex facial disguise, yes. On the hair and clothes....
    • The scene where Salt tries to seduce Winter in order to be let in the bunker.
  • Shocking Swerve: Many of the twists in the movie can be considered this, particularly the revelation that Winter is also a Russian agent.
  • The Untwist: In the final scenes was anyone surprised to find out that the Russian president had not been killed?
