About this 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.

I saw this film the day it was released in theaters. I enjoed the film and originally gave 5 stars. However, this movie is not about two pot heads in West Virgina. This movie is actually about MK Ultra mind control, hence the title American Ultra. It rages with Illuminati symbolism...from the all seeing Eye tattoos on their ankles, to the numerous screenshots of Jeese Eisenberg's Eye. I'm sure the Illuminati and the Elite gave it 5 stars, but I score it as a 3, due to the misrepresentation of this film.

Jesse Eisenberg plays a great stoner, not so much a great super spy, but I think that was the point though I felt good acting lacked any passion for the part, but that's just my two cents. But even stone face Kristen Stewart seemed more emotional than he. The story has its issues like most movies today, but it was still well put together. Not quite perfect but amazing!

Was honestly expecting alot more from this movie. The main character was whiney the whole time much like most roles Eisenberg plays, it's poorly executed as well. It has the feel of a rich Hollywood executives kid thinks they have what it takes to make a good kid based Jason bourne. I'm sad I purchased it.
