I always watch this kind of movie online or free download it. Three scientists are on their way to give a report to the United Nations when they are taken hostage. Laura (Veronica Ferres) is the main focus as one of the kidnappers (Michael Shannon) wants to make sure she realizes what a greedy company can do to people and their environment. Remember you can Salt and Fire (2016) watch online or Salt and Fire (2016) free download full movie from Filmxy.
Werner Herzog is one of the most fascinating filmmakers to ever grace film buffs yet there’s no question that something went horribly wrong with this picture. Herzog has a brilliant mind and probably a mind that is a lot more intelligent than the majority of the people who watch his films yet for the life of me I don’t know what he was trying to do with this picture. He wrote the screenplay so I’m sure he was trying to get some sort of message across about ruining the world that we live in but it comes as a pretty epic fail.
SALT AND FIRE is a very weird film and a very bad one at times. Again, I’m sure Herzog had something in mind but sadly it just didn’t come to life on the screen and the end result is a rather boring and flat film. It starts off as a hostage/thriller type of picture yet there’s never any suspense and for the life of me I can’t even see where the director even attempted to build any. I’m really not sure what the entire point of this opening kidnapping was if you weren’t going for some sort of suspense.
Things don’t get much better once the lead scientist and her taker begin to form a strange relationship. Again, what the point of this was is rather confusing because it just doesn’t play out in the picture. We then get another set up with the woman out in a salt field with two blind children. I think these sequences are the most interesting in the film and I’m sure something great could have been done with this alone but it just wasn’t to be. Even these scenes are full of bad moments where there’s just no pay off or anything of real interest.
Both Ferres and Shannon are good in their roles but there’s just so much any great actor can do with mediocre parts. The film does features a rather nice and unique music score and I’d argue that the cinematography was very good as well. The film was shot in Boliva and we’ve got some terrific visuals to look at but sadly just about everything else is flat. SALT AND FIRE is a real misfire from a legendary director who usually delivers much better.
Stars : Veronica Ferres, Michael Shannon, Gael García Bernal
Once you suspend your disbelief with all the nonsensical physics involved, and some plot holes, you can really enjoy this film for what it is. The team involved knows what this movie is and what it's supposed to do, and it does it perfectly. The stunts are over the top and well shot. Some over usage of slow motion and the cuts to character's saying some "witty" dialogue became tiresome. All in all this movie got the job done for me, I enjoyed the hell out of watching all the ridiculousness and all the characters having fun with it; that's all I want out of these films and nothing more.

I don't know about you guys, but I think "Furious 7" should have been the last one in the franchise. Sure, it was cool to see Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson kick ass together on the big screen, but was it enough though? Hell, even Charlize Theron wasn't good of a villain here, and she's one of the best actors around. "The Fate of the Furious" is a big step back in both storytelling and action, since everything looked like it was shot behind a green screen. There's so much you can do behind the wheels, which is why they should use a lot CGI to make things happen. Maybe it's time to go back to street racing since that's more thrilling than watching explosions pop out everywhere.

Another instalment to the ever growing f&f franchise, i know what you are thinking, when will it ever end. Truth be told f&f 8 is an out and out popcorn flick and not to be taken seriously, once you take into account the lack of realism and corniness about it all, then it does its job, as an entertaining action flick. The story was probably the weakest out of of them all and there were many plot holes in the script. However this is saved by the constant adrenaline fuelled action scenes. A good film not to be taken seriously, but this brings the question, will they be able to keep pulling this off?
