SALT is an action espionage thriller about a CIA agent who is forced to go on the run after a defector accuses her of being a Russian deep-cover sleeper agent.

Violence

There are frequent scenes of violence, including gunfights and fistfights, and a scene of torture in which it is implied that a plastic tube is forced into a woman's mouth and filled with water. Stronger moments include a woman being repeatedly beaten and smashed into a desk during a fight, a man being stabbed in the neck with a broken bottle, and a woman throttling a man with a chain.

Infrequent use of strong language occurs ('f**k').

Precuts information

During post-production, the distributor sought and was given advice on how to secure the desired classification. Following this advice, certain changes were made prior to submission

Note: The following text may contain spoilers

This film was originally shown to the BBFC in an unfinished version. The BBFC advised the company that the film was likely to receive a '15' classification but that the requested '12A' certificate could be achieved by making cuts in six sequences in order to reduce a scene of torture, four violent scenes and a scene of strangulation. When the finished version of the film was submitted, all six scenes had been reduced acceptably and the film was classified '12A'.
