I am only giving this movie two stars because Blake Lively is in it. There was no need for two endings, and Del Toro turns in with the majority of the actors one of their worst performances.

This is a decent movie from Oliver Stone. Two small-time drug dealers from California and the girlfriend they share run into trouble when a Mexican cartel tries to overrun their operation due to the higher quality of their weed. Instead of rolling over, the two fight back. Completely unbelievable, but it made for a lot of flying bullets and explosions. Blake Lively is lovely.

Not a new or original idea for a movie script but for what it is, a dark, disturbing (if slightly messy) Oliver Stone movie, it's entertaining to watch.

There was so much I wanted to like about this. The cast is solid, the setup is interesting and Stone is a quality director. He sets the right tone, but the plot and pacing are very messy.

Well that was a trashy, yet totally dull film that apart from a few interesting bits of acting from Travolta and a cool first scene. It all came down to editing, and in this film they left way too much in and the script took a good few too many wrong turns. Maybe best to watch on DVD while very drunk.... while playing cards with friends or something.

The gentle Americans, bad Mexican dealers ... if you believed that Oliver Stone was a liberal, the nauseating hints of this "film" will open your eyes. Trump must have based his policies on this mess.

Visually lush, but really bounces between cruelly graphic scenes, and dull stoner monologues. Travolta is wasted here, as is the bigger picture that the harmless "whole-food hippie" image of US dope producers is connected to the horrific violence of the Mexican cartels.

Sure, this movie has its flaws, but I loved it! It's action packed, raw (in a good way), violent, sexy and has some good humor. Taylor Kitsch and Aaron-Taylor Johnson are great in it in their own ways. I'm not sure I've ever raved about Blake Lively's acting and I won't here either. She is nice to look at though. Benicio Del Toro has a very violent and fitting character. The two poorest jobs I thought were done by Salma Hayek and a John Travolta. They were manageable though. The storyline is simple and kept me interested. There was only one real flaw, the ending. If the film had ended 5 minutes earlier then it would've been perfect and I'd be praising it as one of the most entertaining movies of the year. Unfortunately, they copped out. I'll rewatch it, but when I do I'll turn it off with 5 minutes left.

Oliver Stone lives off controversy. His films really blur the line between art and pure exploitation. Personally, I'd say SAVAGES leans a little towards that latter category, but it's still a blast. This movie is a Stone film, which means it's going to have plenty of violence, sex, torture, drugs, and murder, while at the same time creating a gritty atmosphere that makes you want to take a shower after the movie's over. Yes, I realize films like that don't appeal to everyone, but I can't deny I'm pulled toward movies like these, as long as their made well. Savages has a pretty engaging storyline that I found found both intense and amusing (two friends share the same girl, they're cool with it. She says they're both one man, ha! I just find that amusing) at the same time. Their are some good performances in the film, with Mr. Del Toro being the standout. Dude was creepy as hell, enough said. He just mastered his role and pretty much stole the show every scene he was in. As for Lively, I didn't hate her. She wasn't amazing or anything, but she accomplished her purpose and I surprising like her character even though she was technically the ultimate slut. Now I get to that ending, the one everyone calls a beaten switch. To be honest, I found it to be a perfectly fine ending. It surprised me (in a good way), and when a movie can surprise me like that, it gets extra points. Now is this "Natural Born Killers" or "Platoon"? No? It's no where near as good as those movies, but it's still Oliver Stone man: sex, blood, guts and grit. The dude's undeniably talented, what can I say?

The ending is crap, but everything before it is engaging and well-paced with good character development on all sides.

Savages is your typical Oliver Stone film. The movie is great to look at very slick with a good story of corruption and power followed by some decent performances. The movie isn't perfect however there are some pacing issues in the two leads themselves are a bit bland. A little bit of work on the script really would've helped this one being truly something special. It's a decent Oliver Stone flick but it's not one of his best films.
