"Savages" is Oliver Stone the way we like him - gritty, sexy, and oh-so-violent. This film starts as a simple story of a laid-back crew of Southern Californian pot dealers, but develops into and all out warfare between them and notoriously ruthless Mexican drug cartels, fronted by a very mean Selma Hayek. This is a Hayek we have not seen before - so gritty and dirty, yet so beautiful and elegant. And who is Hayek's backup - the dirtier than ever Benicio del Toro - in a magnificent performance. Yet the gang still has their hopes with John Travolta, and he steals the show. Drama <more>
in every scene, nothing is predictable, a statement from Stone on living in Southern California, which could be anywhere, in this day and age. We are all subject to the whims of the world, as Stone proves, we are perhaps too connected, too much. The world is not a large place anymore, but a terrifyingly small area, where unscrupulous people create havoc. A great storyline, great acting, depth, drama - all top of the line. Do see this one, it is fresh and new, exciting, and will leave you breathless. The 'ultra- violence' of the Droogies in "Clockwork Orange" have nothing on Stone's vision of violence in this masterpiece.
I don't write reviews very often but because of the low ratings this film was given by users, I decided to let you know what I think.This was an excellent movie. Plain and simple. It was filled with the perfect amount of action and drama. I thought the acting was very good and the storyline was phenomenal. I found myself getting attached and feeling for the characters and at some points, I was even in tears. It upsets me to see that so many users only gave Savages a one star rating and a bad review. The movie was rather bloody at parts but all in all, it was an outstanding movie. Savages <more>
was definitely worth the two hours and eleven minutes I spent watching it.
Savages starts out sweet and simple, and turns into an all out war. the movie grabs you with amazing actors including Taylor Kitsch Who is the next best thing in acting , Aaron Johnson who puts on a spectacular performance , John Travolta and Benicio Del Toro These two men put on great supporting roles , then gives you a ride that you never want to end. The movie gives a gripping story line that keeps you guessing. This movie also puts you into the characters world and you begin to feel a bit of sorrow for the positions that they are in. The director did a great job of keeping the audience <more>
interested the movie. I have to say, for a movie that I thought would be just another kill-kill movie, it kept me going the entire movie because i was not only wrong, i was way off. Savages really puts you into real life and shows a good example of how the drug cartel is in real life. Overall the movie was outstanding, great story, amazing actors and the ending had everyone in the theater in shock. A+
Compelling story and interesting characters (by phd_travel)
The story is good, unpredictable and not far fetched. The Baja drug cartel make two small time drug producers an offer they can't refuse and kidnap their girlfriend. Liked the black humor that runs through the story.There are likable characters on both sides of the battle. All the actors are well used. Blake Lively is finally in a big screen role that suits her well. Her loose living California girl and narrator is both amusing and lovely to watch. John Travolta's slimy crooked cop is just right. Salma the drug lord is quite darkly amusing. Benicio's face does all the work. The <more>
two good friends who share everything are well played by Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Johnson who are both kind of uglied up for the roles.The violence is very graphic but it's contained to certain scenes and you know when it's coming and can choose to close your eyes. Both the sex scenes and the violence make this for mature audiences.Overall a good plot driven kind of feel good thriller with a stand out cast.
Its a very gritty movie on WHATS really going on with the Mexico Drug Wars (by oc-419-57723)
I just watched the movie and I though it was a great movie from Oliver Stone. It showed the real side of the real SAVAGES the Mexico Drug Cartels a lot of the stuff they showed about their ruthless torturing methods is actually really what they do to other human beings so for Oliver stone to make a Real life based movie to show the world about what is really happening across our border is a Good thing to show people who don't know about all the unnecessary murders going on is a good thing so that U.S and Mexico can try to really try to stop all this unnecessary violence......with that <more>
being said I really did enjoy the movie Its a must watch if you like those action packed movies with a good plot......>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Stone's latest restates his place in cinema's history: He is one of the best that Hollywood has produced. For starters, he takes on controversial material, adds his personal touch which can only mean daring, intelligent, and non compromising, along with plenty of dazzling visuals. It is almost a given he will some seasoned performers or will introduce us to performers who will eventually become stars. He has done it all again.In "Savages" the drug cartels' relentless violence starts the movie, and we know there is going to be some negative consequences for a few of the <more>
main leads. Before you can say, "I knew it", our leads are in the middle of a nasty battle for power and O Blake Lively 's life. The boys' clear misunderstanding of what they're dealing with soon becomes clear, and Salma Hayek's monumental's ego sets off a series of incidents that will have the audience on their toes.The film's violence works on two different levels, with plenty of horrors implied and off the screen, but they still leave quite an impact on the audience, and there is the psychological violence as you realize that your loved ones are about to subjected to savage violence, whether they are innocent or not. The segments between Lively and Del Toro remind of you Stone's early work in "Salvador" and " Midnight Express" when humanity loses plenty of ground to violence.Hayek's cartel head is much fun to see, as we see her wild theatricals and yet, there is so much frustration and pain at the heart. She might not be all she shows, but there is no other way to survive here, and there is depth in the conversations between her and her prisoner. She is able to see the whole picture, but she is no visionary, and eventually she misjudges the consequences of what she started.There are several lessons in the film, but it is for the most part a typical Stone movie, showy, graphic, wild in its own design, and never boring. It's a perfect example of what he can deliver: an insightful and stylistic look at a contemporary issue in a different way.
In reading some of the very negative reviews posted here, I sensed that some of those writers were more interested In Oliver Stone then the actual contents of the movie. I am not such a great fan of Oliver Stone and thought Wall Street 2 was not well done. Savages, on the other hand, was quite close to the book, gritty, and well done. If you have a problem with the portrayal of Seals or the realism of the scenarios then lay the blame on the book not Mr. Stone. Some of the scenes were certainly quite gory, an increasingly common occurrence in many films these days. So if that turns you off <more>
then don't watch the movie. On the other hand if you want to see a good thriller that will keep you entertained and are comfortable with the topic area, drug dealing and violence, then by all means see this movie and do not be put off by the any bad reviews.As for the ending, it was changed from the book and I think for the better. That's my personal opinion and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, despite my dislike for Mr. Stone.
Oliver Stone back to his gritty, outlandish ways (by thefilmdiscussion)
Now this is the kind of film you'd expect from Oliver Stone. Filled with copious amount of gritty, violent action, sex, drugs and Stone's trademark visual flair, "Savages" is his best work since 1994's "Natural Born Killers". It tells the tale of O, a young California girl who lives with her two boyfriends, in the small Laguna Beach kingdom they've created for themselves with a lucrative pot business. They're not all bad, they sell a lot of their product for medicinal purposes and build up villages in third-world countries. In fact, they're almost <more>
ready to get out of the business altogether. Until the queen of a powerful Mexican cartel forces their hand and kidnaps O. The two mostly peace-loving friends have to decide what's most important to them, and set off on a bloody path of revenge and destruction to rescue O. The film is alive with energy, and the camera captures the sets and locations with a cool sizzle. Most impressive are the characters that Stone and his actors have crafted, all of them unique and quirky and unpredictable. Benicio Del Toro is in near Oscar-worthy form as the leader of a "lawn-care" crew that does a little more than lawn cleanup, as he maniacally twists his mustache. He's great. And so is Travolta, Kitsch, Johnson, Hayek, and even Lively. The ending is both an exciting, wild twist of a surprise, and a Hollywood cop out. But hey, nobody's perfect.Thomas Bond, TheFilmDiscussion.com
Savages - A Review by Brandon Krzysztof (by xThe_Fury)
"Savages" is a thriller filled with the feel of past Oliver Stone films that Stone himself wants to get the audience used to again. Using blood, gore, and intense action sequences; "Savages" wants to give you a feel that hasn't been present in many movies this summer. Now let's see if Oliver Stone can regain his former glory and make another cult classic. Ben Aaron Johnson and Chon Taylor Kitsch are together one of the biggest marijuana dealers in Laguna Beach, California. When a Mexican cartel, led by Elena Salma Hayek , wants to expand their business upward <more>
and offer Ben and Chon a deal, they reject and this forces Elena to send her right hand man Lado Benicio Del Toro to kidnap their shared girlfriend, O Blake Lively . Upon hearing this Ben and Chon agree to comply; but instead with intel from DEA agent Dennis John Travolta , they concoct a plan to rescue you O and get the cartel off their backs for good. First of all, the tone of the film clearly set in the beginning of the movie in the very first scene. It gave you since of what the movie is going to be like and also how gruesome it is going to be. The pacing of the film was great, moved from scene to scene well and there wasn't any scenes that slowed it done. It had a nice steady pace with the perfect fix of action and dramatic scenes. Oliver Stone's close ups during really emotional scenes were great, the whole shot would be the actors face and it really got you invested in that character during the close- up. The acting was pretty good for the most part. Kitsch, Johnson, Travolta, Hayek were really good; but Benicio Del Toro was brilliant. Blake Lively improved in this film, but sometimes her dialogue was really hard to watch. Overall I enjoyed this film a lot. The acting was good, the writing was good, and Oliver Stone's take on this story was good. I'm glad to see him go back to vintage Oliver Stone. I do recommend that people see this film. It's really good. Aaron Johnson, Taylor Kitsch and Del Toro are really worth the price of admission and the movie is, lack of a better word, bad ass. 4 out of 5 stars.
