Based on the novel by Don Winslow, it revolves around Ben (Aaron Johnson), Chon (Taylor Kitsch) and O (Blake Lively) and their lucrative marijuana business. They are literally living in paradise until a Mexican cartel offers them a deal they cannot afford to refuse. Things take a turn for the worse when O is kidnapped to force Ben and Chon to cooperate.
OMG JUST LOOK AT THEIR BODIES – BLAKE LIVELY, TAYLOR KITSCH AND AARON JOHNSON.
They were totally making full use of it at the beginning of the movie when O describes the loves of her life – Chon fucks but Ben makes love. Their business is really lucrative because an average day at the mall for O means getting a pair of Manolo Blahniks and other designer clothes and bags. O’s tattoos are simply beautiful – they accentuate her endless limbs.
It’s really about protecting your own ass and finding your enemy’s weakness to twist it to your advantage. It irks me that the bad guys were able to work both sides of the law! He totally deserved that knife to the hand!
There’s two endings (sort of) and the morbid side of me prefers the first one.
