Chon (Taylor Kitsch) is an ex-Navy SEAL. He grows some fine pot with his close friend and botanist Ben (Aaron Johnson). They share a girlfriend in Ophelia (Blake Lively) who fills in the plot points with narration and claims just because she is telling the story doesn't mean she will be alive at the end. I found her story telling irritating at times.

As fate would have it, the evil Mexican cartel wants to combine businesses. Our guys tell them, they want out, and they can have the whole thing. The Mexicans didn't like that answer. In order to ensure cooperation the cartel kidnaps Ophelia as the guys form a rescue plan. Ben must quickly learn to kill without the aid of any training or a music montage. Our heroes must walk a fine line between disrupting the cartel while working for them.

I liked Oliver Stone more when he made his historical films with a "truthiness" aspect to them. Now he thinks he is Tarantino. The film was certainly watchable and made very well. I believe it was beneath Stone to have done the film. The ending I thought was a mess and needed better developing...but at the same time if Tarantino did it, it would be genius. This is a love it or hate it type of film. I will take the middle ground.

Love love love this. Intricately fashioned. Mirrors the perversity and corruption of today's world. Money and power corrupt.

This movie had a lot of different elements that had potential. I think the "double version" ending did not work! The 2 guys to 1 girl thing was steamy. The plot was well worked. I think it's downfall was the acting on the part of the two main characters, "Ben & Chon". Plus, being narrated in a monotone voice by Lively ruined it! Del Toro and Hayek were great and make the movie watchable.
