I was expecting more action. There is good acting in the movie, especially Benecio Del Toro. But overall I wanted something more. I read the comments before seeing the film. I thought Blake Lively was fine in her role. Selma Hayek was good. The plot was okay. Overall the film seemed like something from Steven Soderbergh's Traffic, something from Quentin Tarantino, and Stone's Natural Born Killers. The movie had its tense moments, but it lacked tension throughout. There should have been more action, and more humor interspersed.
It's not a bad movie. It's definitely not a "must go" film. Somewhere between "go" and "so-so."

I was a little hesitant to see the movie because i read about a lot of violence. It wasn't as bad as I thought (gore-wise) and I really liked the story line. I still find it a little hard to believe that she is with two guys who are best friends, but still really enjoyed the movie. The acting was phenomenal, especially Selma Hayak. She was probably the best part of the movie, especially her interactions wtih Blake Lively. I would see it again - the story was so quick it was a challenge to keep track.

1. If the script has the title of the movie in the dialogue...take it out!
2. Blake lively is smoking hot, but a horrible actress.
3. Hire the company that created your trailer, re-edit your movie and re-release it.
I was extremely disappointed in this film.

Savages falls short of a film that I feel was worth the high price of admission tickets. I think I should have waited until it came out on DVD. Although the film was a good action movie, it failed to meet the expectations that an Oliver Stone film would deliver. It was mindless entertainment at its best, but thats not always what you want in film.

If you like any of the actors, and believe me, all of them are good and some are simply gorgeous, go see this movie.
As for the movie itself, we've seen better Oliver Stone's movies…
This film is a mix of the violence of "Amores perros" and the love story of "Y tu mamá también" but not as good. And the ending is corny…far too corny!
