Over the years Oliver Stone has not only written and directed great films (Scarface, Wall Street, Midnight Express, Platoon, JFK) and others..but he's also been part of a few bad films that never really got to the point of realism and viewer/character connection. (Natural Born Killers, U-Turn). "Savages" falls right in between as Oliver Stone takes a real headline topic of the Mexican Cartels and turns it to a silly and unrealistic movie that really can't be taken seriously. The film is full of international and local known actors, but their performances are not their best. The story feels predictable from start to finish while Blake Lively's narration of the story feels stupid and unnecessary. The movie is not super bad, but is not good either..a fair rating is the most this film can get.
I don't like action movies,but this one ....O MY GOD!
i couldnt stand the narration and Salma Hayek as a boss nah didnt work. There is a good film in their somewhere but its a bit messy.
Pretty good with twists and turns along the way.
