Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Savages (from director Oliver Stone) is about two drug dealers who share the same girlfriend (Gossip Girl's Blake Lively) and must rescue her after she's kidnapped by a powerful cartel. There are strong sex scenes, one scene of full-frontal nudity by a minor female character, and lots of pot smoking, as well as some drinking and cigarette smoking. You can also expect graphic violence, including women being kidnapped and held prisoner (with sexual assault implied), guns and shooting, lots of blood, severed heads, brains blown out, exploding cars, a man being tortured and burned alive, and many dead bodies. Language is also strong, with uses of "f--k" and other words throughout.

Sexual Content

The lead female sleeps with the two leading men alternately and claims to love them both. There are two graphic sex scenes, but neither has much nudity. A minor female character appears naked (full frontal) in one scene.

Violence

Strong, brutal violence, with lots of blood and shooting. Viewers see severed heads and spattering brains. Two girls are kidnapped and treated roughly. Implied sexual assault. A man is tortured and burned alive. Lots of fighting and punching and exploding cars. Several characters die.

Language

"F--k" is used frequently. Also "s--t," "God," "ass," "a--hole," "damn," "goddamn," "t-ts," "d--k," and derogatory language like "f----t," "Jap," and "sand n--ger."

Social Behavior

Characters work together to solve a problem, but at the same time, their behavior is hugely destructive and unhealthy.

Consumerism

Not applicable.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The main characters are drug dealers (pot) and drug users, so the whole story revolves around drugs. Characters are seen smoking pot and getting high in several scenes. Characters also drink beer and harder alcohol and are seen smoking cigarettes.
