In the Oliver Stone film “Savages,” Blake Lively plays Ophelia – or “O” for short – who’s lucky enough to be in a threesome with hunky Chon (Taylor Kitsch) and sweetly sensitive Ben (Aaron Johnson). Unfortunately, the two men dabble in growing pot, which, despite making them tons of money, causes them major problems.
When Chon and Ben refuse to become involved in a cartel, the ring’s leader Elena (Salma Hayek) decides to convince them to join into a partnership by kidnapping O.
Benecio Del Toro plays Lado, Elena’s right hand man, who kidnaps O and gets the attention of Chon and Ben. Not only does he drug and rape O, but he tapes the entire brutal incident so he can show it to O once she regains consciousness.
John Travolta is thrown into the mix as a dirty DEA agent who Chon and Ben pay to try and help them get O back.
In the meantime, the two men kidnap Elena’s daughter Magda, in an effort to make a deal to regain O’s freedom.
Action and an unbelievably violent climax result.
