This action comedy reunites Eisenberg and Stewart, who previously played a couple in the 2009 coming-of-age film Adventureland.

      Not as good as I expected

      If I have to be honest I was slightly disappointed by this movie. After reading some reviews I expected a lot more from American Ultra. It's not that it is a bad movie but it for sure is not a movie I will remember. This film has all the makings of a really good action/comedy movie. It has the suspense and the shoot-outs with the completely daft plot that works somehow. The majority of the cast play their roles brilliantly, with Walter Goggins as Laugher easily being the cream of the crop. But for starters it just takes itself way too seriously, when their is meant to be a joke its delivered with way too much emphasis its just not funny. The whole killing people with spoons and dustpans should be a bit of a laugh out loud moment in the middle of a great gunfight, but its just too serious to really make you want to laugh.

      This movie was interesting and they picked the right guy to plan the closeted killing machine. He is a master at making himself look like a wimp, but was still somewhat believable as a butt kicker too. I think that they plot line has been pretty much played out through many movies like it. The older movie called the long kiss good night is an example of this type of movie. It is still worth a watch.

      This movie is for fans of Bella. This is a weak attempt at an action flick. I waisted my money on this one. If you are interested in this, get on Netflix. Do not waste your money. There is some resemblance of what could be a good movie, but it quickly dues a tragic death , do to unending whining and no real sense of adrenaline to pick you up from this poor stoner garbage. Get something else.

      This movie may not be for everybody, but I really enjoyed it. The Blu-ray looked wonderful. It also sounded great. Also, you can get it with ultraviolet or on iTunes. Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart work together very well in this movie. The very basic premise of the story is that a sleeper agent becomes activated. You get lots of action, drama, comedy, entertainment.

      This came with iTunes and Vudu codes for free downloads. The VUDU worked fine but the iTunes was an issue. Had to go back to Best Buy twice and they sent me to the customer service for Likns Gate and I had to email them. They sent me a new code that worked but it took over a week. The movie itself was great but the download experience was less than to be desired.

      An Underrated Gem

      A lot of people gave this film a miss when it was in cinemas, and I can't honestly tell you why. Eisenberg and Stewart make this a can't miss flick, while avoiding many of the pet peeves most people have about their acting. Supporting cast is memorable, story is solid, and the flick is an overall great time. Give it a look, you'll be happy you did.

      This film was an unexpected surprise. I was interested in seeing the two leading actors in new roles, and was not disappointed. They both have range and depth. Initially, I was put off by the early scenes, but they were only providing the basis for an epic journey. The twists and turns which followed were amazing.
