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.

It all smacks of trying too hard to mask the absence of strong material.

Stone devotes considerable ingenuity to making atrocity appear as a terrifying kind of home movie, but "Savages" is no more than a summertime debauch.

These are neither good people nor interesting savages, and they're not worth caring about. Neither is the movie.

Savages points to a problem with gifted directors, which Stone is, like him or not: They can make a movie that aggravates, infuriates, falters even, but they can really make a movie.

Savages isn't about anything except flashily directed mayhem. In this nest of vipers, it's the slitheriest varieties that survive -- at least for a time.

A film that is fascinating to watch for the most part, and never dull, but without anyone for whom the audience can have a real rooting interest.

Savages is a fun flick that will keep you mildly entertained, but the script is flabby, the feature itself about 20 minutes too long and there's little dramatic tension to speak of.

The film isn't as subversive or as shocking as it tries so hard to be and as a result, it's a much more underwhelming experience than it should have been.

Savages may come off choppy in the very beginning, but it does springboards to a really fantastical second half.
