Living the beautiful life, successful young Californian marijuana dealers, Chon (Taylor Kitsch) and Ben (Aaron Johnson), suddenly find their lucrative business threatened when a Mexican drug cartel, Baja, kidnaps their shared girlfriend, Ophelia (Blake Lively), and demands a slice of the action. When Chon and Ben, with the aid of self-serving DEA agent Dennis (John Travolta), decide to resist the cartel's overtures and fight back, all hell breaks loose as the rival camps go head to head in a high stakes war for control. The all-star ensemble cast also includes Benicio del Toro, Salma Hayek, Emile Hirsch and Uma Thurman.

Our review

"Uneven in places and a tad on the predictable side, but nevertheless this is as close to Natural Born Killers Oliver Stone has come in a long time, and the solid A-List cast and interesting characters make this well worth a watch."
