'Savages'

Director Oliver Stone gets back to the grit that typified much of his early work with this version of Don Winslow's novel, sparked by a couple of young drug peddlers (Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson) who refuse to play with a cartel boss (Salma Hayek) who wants in on their business.

That gets the guys' mutual girlfriend (Blake Lively) kidnapped, with a shady DEA operative (John Travolta) ultimately involved. Oscar winner Benicio Del Toro and Oscar nominee Demian Bichir ("A Better Life") also appear in the effective tale. DVD extra: audio commentary by Stone, Winslow and various crew. *** (R and unrated versions: AS, N, P, GV) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
