American Ultra (2015) – Movie Review
Movie Review –
American Ultra (2015) is probably one of the most unique movies in quite some time. This movie is action packed, perfectly humorous, with a cast that’s perfect for the bill. This movie comes equipped with a uniquely beautiful story-line which will keep you laughing and on the edge of your seat rooting for the stoner; it’s the perfect action, comedy, romantic cluster for anyone to enjoy. Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg work their roles so beautifully in American Ultra, honestly when I saw these two in the same film I was kind of unsure if it were to be good; I watched it anyway and thankfully I did. This is a great movie and all I can say is finally something different and good came out of the movie industry this year.

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.
