Savages (2012)

Directed by: Oliver Stone
Country: USA

Plot: Pot growers Ben and Chon face off against the Mexican drug cartel who kidnapped their shared girlfriend.
Review: “Savages” brings back Oliver Stone to the style he likes most. A coarse style with some good results in the past but that really doesn’t work well when the plot is full of holes. Blake Lively, whose voice is adorned with a fake sentimentality, narrates the entire story. A story that tries to be cool by all the means but has no juice enough to make us ask for more. I was anxious for the movie to end, just to confirm that nothing is distinguishable in “Savages” to deserve a look.
