"I'd take the deal instead of decapitation."
Journey into the brutal world of the illicit drug trade with a pair of otherwise peaceful pot dealers who get all Punisher-y when their girlfriend is snatched.
The Flick: Savages
The Skinny: Three-time Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone (Platoon) takes a break from political dramas, documentaries, and conspiracy theories to deliver a manic, anarchistic drug movie that recalls Natural Born Killers.
The Players: Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Johnson play small-time pot dealers who attract the attention of a drug kingpin (Benicio del Toro) and end up at odds with both the cartel and a corrupt DEA agent (John Travolta). Blake Lively, Salma Hayek and Emile Hirsch also star.
The Goodies: Savages debuts on Blu-ray and DVD on October 24th. The combo pack includes an unrated version of the movie, a digital copy, an UltraViolet copy, deleted scenes, and the five-part "Stone Cold Savages" featurette, which showcases the cast and crew.
