About the Movie

Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart star in this dynamic thrill ride that mixes explosive action with edgy humor. Mike (Eisenberg) shares a small-town life with his girlfriend Phoebe (Stewart). But Mike's sleepy world goes wild after he discovers that he's actually a CIA sleeper agent with lethal fighting skills—and the target of government hitmen. Mike, the ultimate slacker, transforms into an ultra-attacker as he and Phoebe fight to survive in this exhilarating adventure.

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. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Aug 20, 2015

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. – Richard Brody, New Yorker, Aug 24, 2015

Rotten: An amusing idea, but the ugly violence and weepy dramatics effectively kill any comedic buzz. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, Aug 20, 2015

Fresh: You never fully buy "American Ultra" - you're not supposed to - but it's a decent ride with some nice turns. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Aug 21, 2015

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.
