Corrected entry: Salt is climbing down the elevator shaft and reaches a point about four floors above the elevator which had stopped at the bunker. She then finds a smooth section of the shaft which allows her to slide down to the top of the elevator, uninhibited. She does this by using her hands to brake her so that she doesn't free fall. Only problem is that when you hear the squeaking of her hands, you have to believe that there is enough heat from the friction of her hands against the metal to literally burn the skin off her hands, but she does not even indicate that she feels any heat at all- no rubbing of hands, etc. Also, she does not use her feet in this sequence - they are hanging loose during the controlled fall.
Corrected entry: Near the beginning, when Salt goes to her apartment, the agents chasing her throw canisters of gas and explosives into her apartment before going in themselves. But wouldn't the explosives blow the windows out, not in? Shards of glass are seen coming in through the windows and covering items on the inside - lots of them.kh1616
Corrected entry: When Salt pulls out the data stick to stop the nuclear launch, she is shot just below her right shoulder, with enough force that the bullet goes straight through. However, a few seconds later it is revealed that she was wearing a bulletproof vest the whole time, which would have made penetration by the bullet impossible.imagine21
Corrected entry: When Salt goes back to her apartment, she picks up, from a tank, a small black spider and puts it in a sealed jar. Problem is: when she picked up the spider, she also picked up some shredded paper, but the spider in the jar is free of paper. She didn't have enough time to get rid of the paper, but it's gone.kh1616
Corrected entry: After Salt kills Orlov she arms herself with three grenades, picks up a semi-automatic pistol, checks the magazines, then snaps it up into the handle of the weapon. But she doesn't chamber a round by pulling the slide back - yet immediately afterwards she is shooting the bad guys without taking that vital step.launcelot
Corrected entry: Near the end when the President is reading the authentication code to the General at NORAD to take control of the Nuclear Weapons, the card he held did not match the code on the computer the NORAD General was looking at. The card the President held was actually every other letter/number of the code shown on the computer screen. The President, however, read all the letters/numbers correctly matching the NORAD computer. The computer screen showed:Z T E 7 9 J X S7 A M C W 5 6 TThe card the President held read:Z E 9 X 7 M W 6Scudrunner
Corrected entry: In the flash back scene where you see the Russian helicopter flying to the castle/building where the young Russian children are being trained (I believe this would have been set in the 60's-70's and is explained by the old Russian spy to Angelina during the interview), the Russian helicopter has the current Russian flag, however it should have the old communist flag.
Corrected entry: Salt is dressed like a man sneaking into a White House press function. She is posing as the male companion of a former Russian colleague of hers, who is also a double agent. They keep whispering to each other in a heavy Russian accent which makes absolutely no sense given they were speaking to one another in fluent Russian in the previous scene.
Corrected entry: Where Salt is ecasping from the CIA building, she's been locked down in the facility. High security, shutters, alarms and the like. Yet she shoots out a window, and jumps to the street. It's unlikely the CIA would have an un-protected window with glass that you can shoot out.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Salt is asking to join Ted in the command center where he is about to launch the nukes, the subtitles say "Please, let me join you", but the Russian she speaks is "Prosti Menya", which translates to "Forgive me".
Corrected entry: When salt extracts the venom from a black widow spider, you see the underpart of the spider. If you look closely, there is nothing on its bottom.Black widows have a red hourglass-shaped mark on their bottom to show that they are female. Males -such as the one in the movie- do not contain the potentially deadly neurotoxin that the female does.movieepicfailiure
Corrected entry: When Salt returns to her apartment, near the beginning, being chased by her team members, she climbs on the ledge without her shoes. When she climbs back onto the ground and runs away in the next scene, she is wearing boots.
Corrected entry: When Salt jumps off the bridge onto the semi trailer truck, the truck is a blue cargo container. When the agents follow her to the next bridge overpass, she is on a gas tanker truck.
Corrected entry: When the Russian Vice President's death is being announced on TV, his life is shown from 19xx - 2011. But it is not even 2011 yet. Probably the movie was originally planned to be released in 2011.
