Her most recent movie, The Tourist (well, her most recent live-action movie. She did have a role in this year's Kung Fu Panda 2.) She plays Elise, charming, seductive, beautiful, rich, and on the run. She's under surveillance by the police because her lover is wanted for tax evasion. Her lover, a mysterious financier whose identity is unknown, bilked a gangster for billions, so is on the run from the gangster and from the police. Elise randomly selects Frank, an American schoolteacher played by Johnny Depp, pretending like he is her lover, in an attempt to fool the police, but that gets Frank into trouble. Much chasing and shooting and capturing and escaping ensues.
|She looks great, even after being shot at and driving a boat in a daring escape.|
On a bit darker note, Jolie plays CIA agent Evelyn Salt in Salt. When a Russian defector claims he has information on planned assassination attempts on the presidents of Russia and the U.S. He even names the assassin: Evelyn Salt. Suddenly under suspicion, she goes on the run. But is she running to prove her innocence or running to accomplish the assassination? It's a fun ride, with plenty of unbelievable action sequences, wildly convoluted conspiracies, and impossibly duplicitous characters. I am a firm believer that some of the most enjoyable movies are also some of the most outrageous. The good news: Salt 2 may be in the works!
