I love that Salma Hayek is the bad girl in this movie, not the heroine like she normally is. Oliver Stone made a great decision in putting a woman crime lord into the movie even if it isn’t a good one. The combination of her and Benicio Del Toro definitely made me want to watch this movie more. I think the two of them, and sometimes John Travolta, totally make the movie. One has to wonder where Oliver intended since the idea behind it was decent. I know that when this movie comes out I might have a hard time finding it at the nearest kiosk so a Dish co-worker suggested Blockbuster @ Home. He said that the movies get delivered to my house and I even have the option to stream movies to my Hopper. Since Savages isn’t out on DVD yet I can put it in my queue so I can get the movie right away. Of course I jumped on the opportunity to try it out and I’ve been hooked ever since. I don’t have to leave the house to get the latest releases: no more waiting in line, driving around and wasting gas. As I said before, the idea of the movie was a good one but lots of parts don’t match up and don’t make sense. A lot of reviews online haven’t been too friendly and very honest. If you try not to look at it critically, the movie works.
