Terrible Movie

I had a great time watching this movie, It was definitely worth it.

I liked it. The story is good and it makes you think about morality and how stupid the drug war really is. Worth checking out for sure.

Excellent movie, well acted written and directed. I especially loved Benicio del Toro's acting which was masterful. Beautiful scenery of southern California and Tijuana, Mexico. The movie has a very clear message about the illegality of drugs and how it corrupts ordinary people, helps build dangerous and powerful drug cartels and, most importantly, how the corruption is paramount in the Police

Savages is a daylight noir, a western, a stoner buddy movie and a love story, which is to say that it is a bit of a mess. But also a lot of fun, especially as its pulp elements rub up against some gritty geopolitical and economic themes. Full Review

So. What part of this is boring? All of it. Full Review

Savages is a B-movie striving for an A-plus, a decadently energetic summer escape with bloody action, bold visuals and bodacious attitude to burn. Full Review

This is, in fact, one of the more violent movies in recent memory. But Stone doesn't let anyone off easy. Violence has an effect here, has meaning, has relevance to the story. And that's a good thing; otherwise, it would be hard to stomach. Full Review

Savages comes off as director Oliver Stone trying to rekindle his "Natural Born Killers" mojo from 1994. But when the bigger-name stars show up here in cartoonish roles, things feel more silly than gritty. Full Review
