There's not one original idea in Salt, the new espionage thriller starring Angelina Jolie as a suspected Russian spy on the lam. It's a good thing then that the film is so fast-paced -- it barely gives you time to think about how we've seen this all before. Jolie has always been surprisingly adept at action, and Salt should satisfy those looking for a quick dose of turn-your-brain-off thrills.

But for those looking for originality? Well, Salt is just another butt-kicking female spy in a long line of butt-kicking female spies. We've managed to recover some confidential files from deep within something called "the internet" that reveals there are more secret operatives lurking in our midst than just Evelyn Salt.
