Angelina Jolie in SaltWhile most A-list Hollywood actresses built their career in romantic comedies, Angelina Jolie has taken a different route to the top: action roles that showcase her peerless sex appeal. You wouldn't pay to see her trade funnies with Hugh Grant, but there's no one who looks better running with a gun.

In Salt, Jolie plays a CIA officer who's accused by a defector of being a Russian spy, planted in the US since childhood as part of an elaborate Soviet-era programme to infiltrate and subvert its Cold War enemy. When she goes on the run, guilt is confirmed in the eyes of her colleagues (Schreiber, Ejiofor), but you can bet that all is not as it seems.
