Can you blame them? Blake Lively is kinda hot. And apparently she’s extremely loose in the film, too. Of course, I’m not sure if that’s enough to go to war with the Mexican cartel over, but that’s the premise of Oliver Stone’s crime flick “Savages”. There were a lot of action and gunplay in the trailers for the film, but the six clips only feature a stabbing and a bitch slap, with the rest devoted to people sitting around talking about one thing or another. I’d have liked to get a little more excitement out of these clips, for sure, but I guess we’ll have to make due with what we’re given.
Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben (Johnson), a peaceful and charitable Buddhist, and his closest friend Chon (Kitsch), a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary, run a lucrative, homegrown industry—raising some of the best marijuana ever developed. They also share a one-of-a-kind love with the extraordinary beauty Ophelia (Lively). Life is idyllic in their Southern California town…until the Mexican Baja Cartel decides to move in and demands that the trio partners with them. When the merciless head of the BC, Elena (Hayek), and her brutal enforcer, Lado (Del Toro), underestimate the unbreakable bond among these three friends, Ben and Chon—with the reluctant, slippery assistance of a dirty DEA agent (Travolta)—wage a seemingly unwinnable war against the cartel. And so begins a series of increasingly vicious ploys and maneuvers in a high stakes, savage battle of wills.
Starring Taylor Kitsch, Blake Lively, John Travolta, Salma Hayek, Aaron Johnson, Uma Thurman, Emile Hirsch, Trevor Donovan, Benicio Del Toro, and Joel David Moore.
