Who is Salt?
Salt Kills.
Don't Trust Salt.
Salt Must Die.
Salt Will Not Be Stopped
Character Error
At the funeral, the Russian President greets the US President and First Lady, then turns his back to squeeze past them to his seat. No Russian would do that. Rather than turn your butt toward someone, Russians will turn to face the person they are passing.

Character Error
Salt has spent her entire life becoming a CIA double agent, yet Orlov's appearance at the CIA, where he reveals that she is a sleeper agent, needlessly destroys all her effort. It makes no sense for him or his organization to do this.

When Evelyn is climbing on the outside of the building, in some shots her dog's head is visible sticking out of her backpack. In other shots the backpack is zipped up tight.

When Salt returns home looking for her husband, she sees a sandwich with two bites taken out of it. In the next scene during the raid by the CIA, a half-eaten sandwich is seen.

Errors in Geography
In one of the Washington DC scenes, Salt is seen entering the Archives/Navy Memorial Metro station, and emerging from the L'Enfant Plaza station, without ever boarding a train.

Errors in Geography
The movie is supposed to take place during the winter time as evidenced by the fact that there were no leaves on any of the trees during the scenes in D.C. and NYC. However, during the first chase scene on the overpass which took place in D.C. there were leaves on all the trees. This is because that scene was actually filmed in Albany, NY later on during the spring.

Factual Mistake
When Salt extracts venom from the spider, she inserts the needle in the abdomen. The location of the venom sacs are directly above the fangs, in the chelicerae of the spider; also there would not be nearly enough to be visible in the syringe.

Factual Mistake
The Taser model that Salt uses to "steer" the police officer is capable of only three shots before reloading, but Salt fires it many more times to make the officer press on the gas pedal.
The movie was originally written with Salt as a male (Edwin A. Salt), and Tom Cruise was approached to play him. Ultimately, he backed out and the script was rewritten with a female lead and Angelina Jolie was cast.

Reportedly, Angelina Jolie did most of her own stunts.

There's a small pennant with a Russian tricolor hanging behind the LCD screen at SALT's working desk. The Russian lettering on it says "To the participant of the war campaign in Chechnya".

The screenplay for this film was featured in the 2007 Blacklist; a list of the "most liked" unmade scripts of the year.

The airplane that Salt rides in with the NATO officer is a Piaggio P180.
