Holy Moly, Angelina Jolie!

4 Oct

Bam, Zam, Wow! You rock as super CIA agent Evelyn Salt in your latest thriller “Salt.”  James Bond and Jason Bourne, tip your toupees to Evelyn and Angelina.

This is why they pay me the big bucks.

In the movie, you karate kick the flying gizzards out of a brigade of burly Commie psychos, sucker punch a platoon of New York City cops, put the slip on the Secret Service and the FBI – not to mention construct a most effective rocket launcher from a fire extinguisher and table legs.

Don't mess with me!

Oh, and much thanks for saving the world from nuclear annihilation. Someone had to do it.

A bit of an unbelievable plot and hero, you say?

Jump me!

Shucks, I never heard any guy coming out of a James Bond flick, complaining “Gee, that was kind of farfetched, he doesn’t look muscular enough to highjack a speeding motorcycle, jump from a bridge to the roof of a careening trailer tractor, leap from a top security helicopter into the freezing Potomac River and charge through the woods carrying a backpack full of nuclear reactors.”  All while being shot at and shagging a Super Model.

Math is hard!

Angie baby, as super spy Evelyn Salt, you are also a real woman who demonstrates tenderness for her mild mannered, mole-flecked husband and cute pooch, is darn nice to small neighbor children who find math hard, and – get this – even offers to cook breakfast.

Hmm. You just don’t see “Bond, James Bond” stop to feed the cat or kiss a wife goodbye or canoodle the kids before mountain biking up Mount Kilimanjaro, hang gliding off the Cliffs of Moher or scaling a remote island castle in the Arctic sea to blow away Goldfinger and Octopussy.

Like a back rub?

It’s refreshing to see a non-animated female character (even if the role was originally written for a male) who embodies intellectual power, intestinal fortitude, strength, heart – and, yes – beauty.

    I just want to spend one day walking around in the shoes of a stunningly beautiful woman. Just one.

    I like Mr. and Mrs. Smith…until the end, when there’s a climactic shoot-out and I get super bored with all the fighting.
