There was a time when I would have bought Angelina Jolie as a super-spy action hero. That time was 2002, back when she still ate food. These days she seems unsuited to play anything other than Gollum, should that LOTR prequel The Hobbit ever get off the ground. In these four clips from Salt you’ll see what appears to be Gollum wearing an assortment of bad wigs in some sort of ill-advised remake of Live Free or Die Hard. This is actually the movie Salt, and the more I see of it, the less it seems like a good idea.

Hollywood’s big stars are losing their power. 2010 was the year that took down Tom Cruise. The way Salt’s shaping up, Angelina Jolie could be the next casualty in the endless summer of cinematic disappointments that this blockbuster movie season has become.

Maybe I’m wrong. I’d like to be wrong. Watch all four clips from Salt below, and tell me if I off.
