Thumbs up Savages (Oliver Stone)

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


It has been over a decade since Oliver Stone has made a trippy film, so this is definitely a welcomed surprise.

Looks like an average Tony Scott film. I don't see Oliver Stone in this.

Natural Born Killers
U Turn

Oliver Stone was doing this schtick YEARS before Tony Scott.

It has the same trippy, kinetic look with the rapid pace editing.

5/10 = average. So .... average, or bad?

I forgot to ever review this movie. It had an amazing soundtrack and things happened, but, I walked out pretty much deciding it was pretty average.

5/10

I think the ending ruined the movie. It's an average-quality film, but if they had removed Blake Lively's pointless voice-over and improved the ending, it could have been a pretty good crime drama.

The voiceover was indeed atrocious. The ending was just weird.

I don't really want to watch this again, but it has been so long that I don't honestly remember what else I didn't like.

Ye I'd say 5/10 is fair. It had its plus points but as mentioned the end was crap and the voice over was pretty pointless/poor.

My ratings are more like school grades. 5/10 is a fail, 6/10 is barely getting by, etc.
