Savages (2012)

By | 2012-12-20

Two good looking young guys that openly share the same girlfriend, happen to be major players in the quality marijuana business in California. Their focus being on sales and not on self preservation, they become prime targets for a Mexican drug cartel that is looking to expand into the U.S.

The movie is somewhat disturbing. Disturbing in that there is graphic violence, and most of the characters tend to have a complete disregard for human life. That combined with being a well told storey that draws us in and feels personable, makes it uncomfortable and disturbing at times.

Narration at the end of the film, making a lame attempt at explaining the movie’s title, was the only thing about the movie I didn’t like. If you can’t see the correlation between torture and mass murder, and the word savages, you are simply too dumb to appreciate this movie. I don’t think we needed to have it explained to us, doing so is annoying and insulting.

Well told, well acted, unique, and with some unexpected twists, it will keep you focused on the screen.
