Savages (2012)


It is entertaining throughout its entire 140+ minute run-time, but it feels like a desperate attempt to be trendy/stylish. See for example going for the gorgeous Salma Hayek as lead villain, or the three-some thing. Brutality is fine in movies (scary shit keeps me on edge-of-seat), but the rape scene was just not needed. Anyways, this isn't serious film-making.
