ILBFilms.com Film Review: Savages
Review by: Martin Winters martinwinters.webs.com for www.ilbfilms.com
Based on a novel of the same name by Don Winslow, “Savages” is a mean, ruthless, bloodthirsty and ultra-slick thrill ride into the world of sex, drugs and violence. It was a movie that puts balls back into the Crime/Thriller genre – and who is better to do that none other than, Oliver Stone, himself.
Veteran director, Oliver Stone, uses his masterful filmmaking talents in bringing this novel to life onto the big screen. Other than directing the movie, Oliver Stone, also co-wrote the screenplay along with novelist, Don Winslow.
“Savages,” was a story made for Oliver Stone. Just by hearing the movie’s synopsis, had his name plastered all over it. And with him sitting comfortably in the director chair, this movie turned out nothing less than satisfying.
The story was very well written and nicely told through both actors dialogue and character narration. The movie did take off with a slightly slow start, but when it got going - it really got going, and remained a nice, steady pace throughout - keeping your interest intact as the story unfolds.
The cinematography in this movie was outstanding. It was well-made and incredibly stylish throughout, and sometimes artistic. The contrast of colors in this movie was a visual treat. Each shot was beautifully captured with bright saturated colors – really balancing out the tone of the movie in regards to its strong content of graphic bloody violence.
This movie is strongly not suitable for young audiences due to its graphic brutality and constant drug use within the film. All the violence featured in this movie was there with reason. Nothing was over-the-top or used unnecessary – though, at the same time - neither of it was toned down. It was all there for realism – showing us the price one may pay when living such a lifestyle.
The movie also featured a star cast of familiar faces, all giving nothing less than perfection in their performances - especially, Benicio Del Toro, who, in the movie, played the role of a vicious Mexican gangster. He was slick, ruthless and highly intimidating yet, slightly comical all at the same time. He was fantastic and so was everyone else.
