Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It turns out to be a disappointingly underdeveloped film that its makers, chiefly director Nima Nourizadeh and writer Max Landis, must have thought could coast by on a cool but half-baked idea.
Fresh: Nourizadeh, working with a script by Max Landis, plays Mike's bloody violence like visual guitar riffs, and approaches the martial-arts set pieces with heavily underlined wit.
Rotten: An amusing idea, but the ugly violence and weepy dramatics effectively kill any comedic buzz.
Fresh: You never fully buy "American Ultra" - you're not supposed to - but it's a decent ride with some nice turns.
Good. Not great.
It was a little too serious for a movie about a stoner with secret agent training. It could've gone a lot more over the top than it did, but all and all was still a fun little action flick.
Terrible, Terrible, Terrible!!!!
This movie sucked so bad it created a vacuum. Sucked so bad there should have been vampires in it.
Saw over the weekend
Was looking for more of a comedy, fell very short of that expectation. Action, thriller, weirdness..... not what I expected. Was just waiting for it to end.
