    Savages represents at least a partial resurrection of the director's more hallucinatory, violent, sexual and, in a word, savage side. show more

    Stone's moralism, coupled with discreet but bloody beatings, shootouts and all manner of tawdry goings on, rings hollow. The picture is neither entertaining nor preachy – it is simply very loudly meh. show more

    A return to form for Stone's dark side, Savages generates ruthless energy and some, but not too much, humor. show more
