This is a pretty poor movie, and awfully hokey too!
19 August 2004 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

To start, I only watched "Savage!" for one particular reason; because I am a BIG fan of Lada Edmund Jr. If I was not a fan of Lada's, there would truly be no real reason for me to sit and watch such a terrible movie. The acting is horrific, and the dialogue does not even come close to being believable. I might love Lada, but she doesn't deserve any serious Oscar consideration. I know that there are also a lot of people out there that love Carol Speed; well, she's not any good either in this, in terms of acting ability and skill. But regardless of the terrible acting and poor dialogue, the worst thing about "Savage!" is the repetition of far too many ridiculous scenes with guns! It is just unreal for anyone to take these scenes seriously! It's as if the director grabbed a handful of B-movie actors and a large amount minority bystanders from the street, dumped a thousand guns on top of them, and shouted "Run!". Within a matter of seconds, Lada Edmund Jr. and Carol Speed go from cheesy night-club dancers to machine-gun toting guerrilla women! If you watch "Savage!", at some point in the middle of it you'll find yourself asking, "Whoa, did I just miss about 15 minutes here?".

Lastly, I shall mention that there is one nice bonus to "Savage!". You do get a scene of Lada and Carol swimming without their tops on. The ONLY reason for this scene to be in this movie was to show boobs! It has NOTHING to do with anything else in the movie. This is so blatantly obvious, that it hurts. But if you think Lada is cute, and you've always wondered what "The Girl in the Cage" looked like beneath her shirt, then you won't be disappointed by the topless scene in "Savage!". Like I said before, I LOVE LADA EDMUND JR.!!
