Savages – The Plot:
Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben (Aaron Johnson), a peaceful and charitable marijuana producer, and his closest friend Chon (Taylor Kitsch), a former Navy SEAL and ex- mercenary, run a lucrative, homegrown industry–raising some of the best weed ever developed. They also share a one-of-a-kind love with the extraordinary beauty Ophelia (Blake Lively). Life is idyllic in their Southern California town…until the Mexican Baja Cartel decides to move in and demands that the trio partners with them.
When the merciless head of the BC, Elena (Salma Hayek), and her brutal enforcer, Lado (Benicio Del Toro), underestimate the unbreakable bond among these three friends, Ben and Chon– with the reluctant, slippery assistance of a dirty DEA agent (John Travolta)–wage a seemingly unwinnable war against the cartel. And so begins a series of increasingly vicious ploys and maneuvers in a high stakes, savage battle of wills.
