Cast & Credits
When I first read the summary for it I went in thinking Blue Salt was going to be this big gritty action extravaganza. Yeah well this movie was the total opposite! Yes there's guns and gangsters fighting but the story was more based on human emotion. I didnt really like the romance in this cause to me it felt more like an attachment/friendship. The ending was predictable and unpredictable at the same time.
The acting by SSK was really really good! I hardly recognized her from her High Kick series. The main gangster guy was a good actor but i didnt really feel the chemistry with SSK's character. It was nice seeing quite a few actors who are known more for their drama roles.
Overall this movie was good but it was missing something to make it stand out for me.
