Awesome Movie - Saw Preview Last Night (by sharihawk)
Saw this last night as a free preview and we were blown away as was the rest of the audience - people applauded at the end . Great cast, great story, and awesome action. Never saw a trailer of this flick or heard of it, but will definitely tell family and friends to go see it. Was funny, dramatic, and what unfolded was a constant surprise. You never knew what was going to happen next which is rare for me at the movies - I always guess what is coming next . LOVED John Legiuzamo - he was hilarious as Jessie Eisenberg's friend. Always love Topher Grace blew me away in Predators and <more>
Spiderman 3 and think he should be used a lot more in movies - very underrated . Final review: Go see it - think you'll enjoy it.
It wasn't your average spy movie and I believe thats why the movie turned out to be so great and its definitely worth watching!The plot of the movie is great. Has some great actions that will put you on edge waiting for something crazy and unbelievable to happen. The love to this movie was great made it that much real.Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg had the perfectly weird, awkward vibe that made the relationship of the characters work. If any other actors tried to pull it off the movie wouldn't be as great as this movie is.This movie was unique and creative!This movie isn't a <more>
spoof of any of the Bourne movies, its supposed to be fun, CREATIVE, and funny. Not to be mean if you wanted something like that and are judging the movie because it doesn't seem to stand up to your standards don't hate on this movie 'cause of it.Don't judge, just enjoy it and laugh.
One of the greatest Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart films. (by jonashuffman)
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It was funny, I enjoyed the plot, the characters were all interesting and hilarious. I'm used to Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart being in serious, drama films, and it was cool to see them in an action comedy! It was a little lengthy, but I sat through out it. I saw a man get murdered with a spoon, now that's something you don't see everyday. For a stoner, action comedy, it actually had a pretty good story development. I knew most of the actors form previous films they've done, and they did a great job portraying the character for this film. <more>
Another thing I really enjoyed were the songs used for the soundtrack. Surprisingly, I knew almost all of the songs. Overall, it was a great hip movie, go see it!
When it comes to blending action with comedy, some films hit the mark Lethal Weapon & Rush Hour and others, don't Paul Blart but when you combine action/suspense with stoner comedy, then what leads is one of the most fun films you'll see this summer.Mike Howell Jesse Eisenberg is an everyday small-town stoner, who works a bland job at a market, with the goal of marrying his girlfriend, Phoebe Kirsten Stewart but what he doesn't know, is that he's actually an experiment conducted by a CIA agent named Victoria Lasseter Connie Britton and that the CIA has put out a <more>
hit on him. With lots of time and money invested in Howell, Lasseter goes out to his little town and "activates" him, turning him into a stone-cold killer. But while he's the perfect killer, he's also a sweet guy who just wants to be with his girlfriend.First off, I want to say that this flick was funny as hell and chocked full of good action. I had a good time watching it and I was rooting for Mike all the way. But while this film is awesome, I have some complaints but i'll get to them after the pros.Jesse Eisenberg nails the role of stoner perfectly. He's a chilled out lovable guy who just wants to be with his girlfriend and a joint of marijuana. You want to climb into the screen and smoke a fat one with him. and you want to watch his back when he's surrounded by 6 assassins...not that he'd need you.Kirsten Stewart might be known best for her role in Twilight and of course we all know how much those stories mean to single women who spend a lot of time writing fanfictions inspired from a Danielle Steel paperback, but here, she's actually not that bad. She needs to do more comedy cause she works well as the "straight man" or woman in this case. Although she might be typecast for romance films, maybe someone like Ellen Page or Kaya Scodelario would've been a better Phoebe, but hey, it's Kirsten Stewart. can't change it now.Connie Britton fits her role well too. It's almost like watching Colonel Trautman with Rambo from First blood, assuming Mike Howell is John Rambo.OK, now the complaints. first, the obvious. The shaky camera....Hollywood, get it through your thick dumb skulls; We HATE shaky cameras during fight scenes. It doesn't make the scene more exciting or interactive, it just makes the fighting hard to see. Enough already!John Leguizamo. The guy is awesome, one of my personal favorite actors and half the reason I came to see this movie. And they gave him the persona of a wigga. Really? This guy was Benny Blanco from the Bronx and Luigi Mario...OK, maybe that wasn't his shining role as Luigi but he should've at least gotten more screen time. Overall, I totally recommend this film, but maybe you should get baked before going to see it. Or at least get baked for the ending. 9/10
I'm not a film critic or a film connoisseur of any kind; I rate a film based upon how much I enjoyed it and if it would be worth the money to shell out at the theater. With that in mind, I gave this film a 9/10.The best way to describe this movie is Bourne meets CHUCK the TV Series . It is a Dramedy at it finest - it isn't straight up drama and it isn't a comedy, but it has a nice mix of both, leaning a bit more toward the comedy side of things. I couldn't stop smiling throughout the movie; it was well paced, the character development was good don't expect anything too <more>
deep , the comedy was well timed, and the action was exciting. For a lighthearted film, there were a few moments that definitely pulled on the heartstrings. If you're looking for a fun movie to watch, and especially if you're a fan of CHUCK think of this as an R rated CHUCK , then I highly recommend this move.
This review does not contain spoilers, it just talks about the actors and the general mood the film has.I started watching this expecting to hate it quite a bit, because I really don't like Jesse as an actor at all. I was quite surprised to find myself laughing, feeling and getting excited from the very beginning. I guess you could say that this movie was "ultra" fine ; . The action was great with enough blood for someone who likes movies along the lines of Kick-ass and similar. The comedy was funny enough to punch through the serious moments of the movie to give you a quick <more>
laugh before it throws you back into the quite depressing storyline. The twists while i expected them a mile away unfortunately had you feeling heavily for the protagonist. My final thoughts about this movie are that Kristin Stewart really can give a great performance. Do not judge her just on twilight. If you don't enjoy this movie even a little bit i think you really need to lighten up.
A Fun, Flawed, Underrated Action Film with Unlikely Heroes (by brando647)
American ULTRA is not only one of the most underrated films of 2015 but one of the most unjustifiably detested as well. It was far from perfect, but was it bad enough to warrant a meager 43% score on Rotten Tomatoes? I don't think so. Some of the dialogue landed with a thud and Walton Goggins could've toned it down a bit, but otherwise American ULTRA was a pretty slick little action film. In a year full of spy films, most will forget this little tale of the CIA and experiments gone wrong. Mike Howell Jesse Eisenberg is a pothead living in rural West Virginia with his longtime <more>
girlfriend Phoebe Kristen Stewart . He enjoys a peaceful life of smoking weed and working nights at the local general store and his only concerns are the occasional harassment from the local sheriff and crippling panic attacks whenever he tries to leave town. What Mike doesn't know or, more accurately, doesn't remember is that he was once part of an experiment with the CIA where he was trained to be the perfect assassin. When the program started showing adverse mental effects on the subjects, the project was closed and Mike, the most successful of the test subjects, had his memory wiped and was given his new life. But now a young CIA upstart Topher Grace sees his chance to make a name for himself in the agency and begins a new operation using his own trained killers to eliminate the remnants of the old program .including Mike. It'd be an easy enough mission, if someone hadn't activated Mike's programming to give him a fighting chance.American ULTRA had been advertised as a stoner comedy, which was pretty deceiving. This is an action film with an equal balance of dramatic and comedic elements. There are few beats meant to get the audience chuckling but all of them are in the promotional materials, giving the impression this is more HALF BAKED than Jason Bourne. In reality, it's somewhere in the middle of that spectrum. And when you approach it from that angle, it's a pretty fun movie. It's a quick and easy 95 minutes that flies by at a sharp pace. The movie is pretty much in gear from the moment it begins, slowing down for a few brief moments to build on the relationship between Mike and Phoebe. I've seen this movie two or three times now and I haven't been bored yet. On the contrary, I dig it. Jesse Eisenberg is admittedly a strange choice of action star, but it works because Mike isn't supposed to be your average action hero. He's not supposed to be much to look at; as far as we and he are concerned, he's just a stoner who draws comics on the long, lonely nights sitting behind a cash register. Eisenberg works for the character because he can do neurotic incredibly well. When Mike starts slaughtering would-be killers with whatever mundane he's got handy, it's just as shocking to himself as it is to them. He has no idea what's happening; one minute he's straightening shelves, the next he's assaulted by a couple of men and he's jamming a spoon into one's neck with skills he's unaware he even has. With this disconnect and the resulting confusion, it's right in Eisenberg's wheelhouse and he rocks it. He's also got fantastic chemistry with Kristen StewartIn fact, I'll come out and share my opinion that this is probably one of Stewart's best roles. I made a point of avoiding the TWILIGHT series so I've only really seen her perform as Joan Jett in THE RUNAWAYS and Snow White in SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN, and I've never shared the contempt most people have for her. I think she's got some skill and I've never seen her as good as she is in American ULTRA. Now, there's a "big reveal" halfway into the film that's a little hard to swallow but, for all of her interactions with Eisenberg and Topher Grace, I loved her. While Eisenberg and Stewart are a perfect pair of heroes, our villains aren't as strong. Topher Grace does really well at portraying smarmy and conniving and his character Yates is both of these things, but he's also too immature for me to believe he would've been promoted as far as he had and been given the opportunity to institute his own crazy operation. I loved his bickering with Stewart and some of his tantrums were amusing but whenever he tried to come across as threatening, he flat-lined. Walton Goggins is the other big baddie of the film as the only CIA super soldier worthy of remembering, Laugher. I love Goggins and it's great to see him in anything, but I hate Laugher's trademark forced hyena laugh with a passion. He's much better later in the film when he brings the craziness down a few pegs and his character starts coming to his senses a bit; I loved the final moments in the last battle between Mike and Laugher, almost as much as I loved this exchange earlier in the film when Laugher is preparing to set fire to a car that Mike's trapped inside:Mike: yells from inside car "I hate you!" Laugher: pauses in dumping gasoline on car to yell back : "Well, I f***in' hate you too, man!"It's simple and stupid but it gets a laugh from me. There are a lot of little moments like that where humor peaks through the carnage. John Leguizamo has a small role as Mike's drug dealer that's good for some laughs and Mike's own naivety provides him with some good material. It's a perfect blend, really. I'm disappointed to see the lukewarm-to-cold response American ULTRA received. If you haven't seen it yet, I'm giving it a recommend. I think it's worth it and it might surprise you.
American Ultra may appear like a simple Stoner Action/ Comedy film, but it does progressive get complex as time wears on. (by Amari-Sali)
This movie honestly was surprisingly good. To the point that most of the hate I usually have for Eisenberg, since he seems so pompous in 90% of his roles, has temporarily disappeared. For, like Stewart, we get showed that we cannot fully judge their talents by past characters, and their off-camera persona. But what really drove me to firmly place this in the "Worth Seeing" batch is that it hits all the things needed in a film. It is funny, without trying too hard; can get you emotionally invested, because it has lovable characters you want to root for; has a twist or two, which some <more>
may or may not guess; and it has a satisfying ending which leaves everything in a nice, neat little bow. Making it so that Adrian, as a character, might be the only true negative about the film since he sucks as a villain.
Maybe The Biggest Surprise Of The Year (by idanvinter123)
Before I talk about the movie I just wanna say first that before watching this film I was kind of skeptic about this film, mainly because of Kristen Stewart. I wasn't too sure of how this is gonna be, but oh boy was I surprised ! Kristen Stewart was amazing probably her best performance in her career , Jessie Eisenberg was awesome as always big fan of him , the direction was great, the action was fantastic my second biggest surprise , the story is nice and original, the script was also impressive and a pretty fit romantic story. I gotta talk about Kristen Stewart. She was absolutely <more>
excellent. In my opinion this is the best performance of her entire career. She had so much emotion and had really good background. The romance part was also handled really nice. I'm really shocked of how good she was. I never thought she's awful, but never got to see her full potential. This film really shows she can act and act excellently. Now let's talk about Jesse. As I said previously, big fan of him. The Social Network in my opinion is his best performance yet. This movie shows why I like him- HE CAN ACT SO FANTASTIC. He was really great in this movie, had excellent action scenes and was really impressed by his combat skills. Overall it's an amazing experience and worth checking out if you think Stewart can't act. Best Action/Comedy film this year.
