A richly entertaining adaptation of Winslow's novel.

A well-told tale of power, corruption and uncivilized people who use violence and murder to achieve success.

Film Comment Magazine

An unabashedly lurid sun-and-surf ménage-à-trois cum drug-running caper, with touches of Jacobean tragedy for good measure.

The film would have been so much more interesting if the two men had been identical twins played by the same actor-like Jeremy Irons in David Cronenberg's Dead Ringers.

The Patriot Ledger

Stone lights up a big fat one guaranteed to get you high anew on a filmmaker widely thought to have long lost his potency. And true to weed's notorious side effects, his stash is strong enough to obliterate the memory of drags like 'Alexander.'

Amid all the violence and profanity, Oliver Stone reveals a begrudging respect for his damned characters.

Savages, however, finds a new low for this auteur. It's a trashy, repulsive little flick, so darned unwatchable that it's not even fun to rip the thing apart.

Well made and slickly made but amoral junk.

Rob Gonsalves

This is by no means Oliver Stone's best work. But it's his best work in well over a decade.

Veers way off course in its second act, becoming confusing and vague - indeed, stoned. But it all comes good in the end.

Rob Humanick
Projection Booth

Essentially stupid, but stylistically invigorating, like watching a genius muck about with finger paints like a child on a sugar high. And then it throws it back in your face.

This film goes about as deep and dark as a summer high. Sure there are flashes of mexploitation fun, but ultimately it's just way too mellow, man.

Savages reels you in but then doesn't finish the job.

Oliver Stone isn't known for making pretty films but ugly is something he does very well.

A good piece of gritty, grown-up entertainment. One question, though - has Oliver Stone lost his movie mojo?

It's a dirty and messy firecracker of a film, but one that's directed with thrill and skill.

Its energy has long deflated before an ending that will try the patience of even the most forgiving viewers. There's little to defend once Stone and company have so eagerly adopted the cheap twists of a latter day Shyamalan picture.

Savages is a hot mess - beautiful actors and locations mixed with a plot that starts strong but ultimately turns into a snooze-fest. With a lead villain seemingly ripped from the cover of Cosmo magazine, Stone's latest flick savagely disappoints.

The Age (Australia)

The messy insouciance wears a little thin, and by the time we get to the absurdity of the extended ending, enough is definitely enough.
