With only four days left the clock ticks down towards a new world holocaust. The only thing standing in its path is Interpol's deadliest black-ops agent, Samuel Tharpe. Sam hunts down the path of a game-changing WMD called the Exterminatus. He follows hot on its trail deep into the ancient land of China where he must seek aid from the Abbot at the Shaolin Temple. An evil Yakuza master stole the Exterminatus and seeks to use it in the East. Sam must prove his worthiness by fighting one of the Temple's most skilled monks. Prepared to lay down his own life in exchange for the lives of his family and the world, Sam steps forward and engages in combat. Only his long-past training by the Shaolin master, Yu Bai Shek will make him a worthy hero. Written by Philip Daay

The first short film that I've watched
6 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've never been inclined to watch a short film as I thought that the filmmakers couldn't possibly convey much, but I was wrong. I thought "Black Salt" was pretty interesting. It is based on a comic book series that I'm not familiar with, but I may have to read now. Without giving away too much, the character Black Salt is a spy, and not just any spy, he is an elite force unto himself. In typical spy thriller fashion, he is racing the clock to stop a catastrophe.

The fight scenes are good considering this is a short film and the special effects were also good. I think that if given the opportunity to develop this comic series into a series of shorts or full-length films, it would do well. Black Salt could also benefit from a cartoon rendering ala "Batman: Under the Red Hood."

There were a few plot holes, but I won't weigh that too heavily against the filmmakers. I would recommend this film to others and it has encouraged me to watch other short films.
