Great cast, good story.
Ms. Christine M. Glass
In the special feature someone says how the book read just like a movie,which may not be a bad thing,but it turns out the movie just doesn't have much behind it.
Steve Lundy
One of the better movies I have seen in a while.

I enjoyed all 132 minutes of this film, although I was reluctant to rent it at first based on some of the negative reviews here. It was one of the better films I've seen in a while. Without getting into the plot (do we really need long, amateur interpretations of the plot?), it was also better than what I expected after viewing the trailer. If you're considering renting it don't hesitate. I'm not recommending purchasing it since it's not the type of movie someone would watch more than once. The entire cast did a great job of making this movie highly entertaining. The supporting roles played by Travolta, Hayek, and Del Toro were superbly done. Most of the negative reviews seem to be from people having higher expectations from Oliver Stone, or from having read the book, but I was simply looking for something worth watching. Thank you for taking the time to read my review.

There is nothing about this movie I can recommend. The plot is never believable at any point. The characters are cliche with no depth. The production values are good, but it's all for nothing.
It starts with a voice over where "O" tells you what kind of movie it is. She explains your assumptions are wrong. She's right in my case. I assumed Oliver Stone could still make a decent movie.
Characters are introduced. It's all very dramatic and silly. "O" is a rich girl with daddy issues. You also have your war scarred soldier, hippy world savior, ruthless cartel strong man, corrupt law officer, hacker, etc.
The hippy grows the best weed in the world! He wants more from life, though. He and the soldier love each other and run a successful marijuana cultivation company. They both love O. They are all so happy in their love triangle, but the cartel wants in on their business. Bro-mance don't want to deal and O pays the price.
Bro-mance is willing to do anything to rescue O. They love her SO MUCH! This is possibly the most absurd part. This amazing woman spends her days getting high, shopping, and having sex with Bro-mance. The only back story you get is that her father is absent, her mother is often away, she's rich, and has been using drugs since she was 14. She's a spoiled drug addict with daddy issues who has never done anything with her life because she didn't have to. What a rare find in California! She gets kidnapped because she has to go to the mall one more time before they all flee the ruthless cartel. Seriously. The cartel's strong man, who has been watching the threesome, isn't sure if Bro-mance loves her or if she is just a prostitute. You wouldn't know either if O didn't tell you. Apparently love is getting high and having sex.

Format: Blu-ray
Oliver Stone returns to his most violent movie since "Natural Born Killer," this time focusing on a couple marijuana entrepreneurs and their shared girlfriend. Chon (Taylor Kitsch in his best movie role yet) is a former Navy SEAL who manages to bring back potent marijuana seeds from his tour in Afghanistan. His lifelong friend Ben (Aaron Johnson) is hooked on Buddhism and doing charitable work in Africa. His college degree is in business and botany. How perfect. Together they amicably share a love interest in Ophelia (another surprising performance from Blake Lively), who is known as "O."

As the story centerpiece "O" is the glue that holds things together. She's also the chief weed sampler. The story suggests that this relationship may be a bit more than two boys liking a girl but that question is never quite answered. Hmm. All is well until they get an "invitation" to join a powerful Mexican cartel headed by Elena (Salma Hayek). Saying no is not a good idea, as the guys are exposed to the grisly beheadings of cartel foes. Elena and her California chieftain (an iniquitous Benicio Del Toro) need the secret to the THC-rich strain of pot so they kidnap poor "O" on the eve of trio's departure to a secret location in Indonesia.

Here is Elena's deal. She gets 30% of the revenue, $13 million up front and they keep "O" under wraps for 1 year. After that, the business venture ends. Naturally Ben and Chon don't like the arrangement. Especially Chon who realizes, the ruse will never end. Added to the fun is John Travolta who plays a senior DEA agent. He is on the take from Ben and Chon and may be playing all sides. Stone gets strong performances from his cast in this savage thriller. I can't help but wonder however why Stone decided to go with two endings. The first one was fine.

Murder, marijuana trafficking, bloody shootings, sadistic torture, point-blank executions, gratuitous graphic sex and enough sleaze to fill a pig trough are the hallmarks of Oliver Stone's "Savages." The last dud that Oliver Stone turned out was the sequel to "Wall Street." Inert as that was, and it was almost embarrassingly bad, this go-round is truly awful, filled with gratuitous violence, torture, sex, a mediocre script and a ridiculous story line. This film reeks of sleaze and body odor. Once upon a time there were a pair of sleazy, grungy, tattooed, sweaty, distinctly unappetizing guys (Taylor Kitsch (aptly named) as "Chon," and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as "Ben"), who lived in a gorgeous beach house in Southern California with their blonde paramour ("O" played by Blake Lively), while cultivating marijuana in a gigantic state-of-the-art warehouse under optimal conditions, such that THEIR marijuana was thirty percent stronger than Mexican pot. Yeah, right. Along came a mean old Mexican drug cartel, with Benecio Del Toro as their vicious henchman, trying to co-opt them and muscle in on their business. When they wouldn't capitulate, the meanies kidnapped their sweetie. What follows is two hours of seedy violence, complete with Skyping back and forth between the "good" guys and the cartel, including scenes of brutal torture and endless grunge. It's about as lowlife as you can imagine, with a bad script, mediocre acting by the leads, and Salma Hayek as a nasty drug overlord bossing the Del Toro character around. The plot is like Swiss cheese it has so many holes in it. I wonder if Mr. Stone has children, and I wonder if he has ever given thought to the fact that producing violent garbage like this only contributes to more shootings and violence in the real world.Read more ›
