Remember when the release of a new Oliver Stone film was greeted by enthusiasm? Actually, no, because that would be before that terrible Alexander movie, or the underwhelming W biopic, or the awful Wall Street sequel, or…well, you get the picture. It’s been a long time.
It just doesn’t seem possible to drum up any excitement for his latest film, Savages, at this point, despite a nice cast and intriguing visuals. In some ways, the upcoming crime thriller does look like a return to form for Stone, but in a ‘yeah, I’ve seen this done better before’ sort of way.
These two new TV Spots (courtesy JoBlo) try selling the violent, action-driven side of the movie and while they really don’t do a whole lot for me, watch them below and tell us what you think.
Savages arrives in theatres July 6th.
