This is certainly one of Stones best movies in a long time, a very cool story based on a novel by the same name, this feels very much like a Tarantino style movie the way it plays out with great fun and interesting characters that get themselves into some sticky situations as they mingle with the wrong people, the movie centres around the three main characters Chon and Ben and their girl O whom they share, they grow and sell the best weed in town and get mixed up with a rival Mexican drug cartel who kidnaps O and then everything goes wrong as the two boys turn to violence to get her back, it's a well paced movie that keeps you going with strong performances from a quality cast Salma Hayek, John Travolta and Benicio Del Toro are all great supporting cast, this is well worth checking out, the extended bluray cut is around 10 minutes longer making it around a 2hr 20min film, there is a commentary and behind the scenes and deleted scenes too.
'taylor' 'arron' and 'ophelia' are best friends and lovers
'taylor' and 'arron' run a successful drug supplying business.
their dealing with a mexican cartel is about to take a turn too far for the duo, the cartel led by 'elena' want to strike a new deal, 'arron' and 'taylor' are reluctant to play ball.
the cartel do not compromise, it's their way or no-way................'lado' the enforcer for 'elena' take 'ophelia' as prisoner to get the duo to tow the line.
'taylor' and 'arron' realize they will have to fight fire with fire sinking to similar acts of brutality dished out by 'lado' and his henchmen to secure the release of their friend and lover.
in truth it's not the fastest moving plot , however it will allmost certainly hold your attention.
many sequences during the film are frankly uncompromising and brutal , also many scenes containing use of drugs.
