American UltraSmall-town stoner Mike Howell spends most of his time getting high and writing a graphic novel about a superhero monkey. What Mike doesn't know is that he was trained by the CIA to be a lethal killing machine. When the agency targets him for termination, his former handler activates his latent skills, turning the mild-mannered slacker into a deadly weapon. Now, the utterly surprised Mike must use his newfound abilities to save himself and his girlfriend from getting wasted.

Critic Reviews of "American Ultra"BuzzFeed NewsNovember 10, 2015
It's a very August sort of movie, the kind that benefits from low, lax expectations.New YorkerAugust 24, 2015
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.New York Magazine/VultureAugust 21, 2015
The movie evaporates in the mind, but Stewart and Eisenberg have real movie-star chemistry.San Diego ReaderAugust 21, 2015
The action-movie absurdity is still in place, but so is Landis' muddy-bloody touch: by the end, Eisenberg's face is a purple, swollen wreck, and rightly so.GrantlandAugust 21, 2015
The movie has the sleepy vibe of some of those scuzzy '90s crime thrillers. It aspires to Natural Born Killers, but has barely enough competence to get close to something like Feeling Minnesota.ReelViewsAugust 21, 2015
As misfires go, American Ultra can at least claim not to be boring.ComplexFebruary 24, 2017
American Ultra, built upon ridiculous premise and casting, is not only the funniest but unexpectedly one of the best action movies of the summer.Seanax.comAugust 13, 2016
American Ultra reworks The Bourne Identity as a slacker comedy with a killer punchline.Epoch TimesJune 11, 2016
Re-title it 'The Bong Identity;' an over the top, silly grind-house-level violent spy-spoof, played very earnestly by Eisenberg and Stewart to surprisingly good comic effect.Japan TimesJune 08, 2016
American Ultra plays like an episode of Homeland for people too stoned to process the plot of a SpongeBob SquarePants episode.FlavorwireMay 27, 2016
A loud, ugly, slapdash combination of action movie, pot comedy, criminal romance, and conspiracy thriller - and about as lumpy and ungainly as you'd imagine such a stew would be.CinemixtapeApril 08, 2016
"American Ultra" improbably has more gore and fewer laughs than "American Sniper," a distinction that makes it sound a lot more compelling that it is.
