American.Ultra Movies / TV VideoAmerican Ultra (8/10) Movie CLIP - Supermarket Skirmish (2015) HD
Instead of a cold-and-edgy corrupt government bureaucracy, it's satirically incompetent. Instead of a cunning Matt Damon, there's Jessie Eisenberg who at a point in the film just wants to go home and smoke weed.
And then instead of fighting other cunning assassins, Eisenberg combats thugs such as Laughter, a sociopath without front teeth.
The film naturally draws comparison to Zombieland , a film also starring Eisenberg. In both films there is a motif of a lame kid accomplishing great things.
Both films also capitalize on morbid humor. And both films have a warm happy ending. The warm happy ending of American Ultra includes Eisenberg forsaking the life of a stoner for that of a government agent.
So now the only stoner is the director, Nima Nourizadeh, whose dgaf approach to film making includes the avoidance of stereotype film genres.
This can be observed in his first major film, Project X , and I hope it can be observed again. I keep trying to like Jesse but can't see him as an actor and , certainly , not in this.
Just couldn't watch this flick but gave it a good shot. Perhaps i'm just a prude but the younger crowd may see something in this but i couldn't handle the dialogue having 'like' or 'totally' or some other non essential word thrown in edgewise.
I mean really, like absolutely this like is a total disaster really i mean like it's so bad like i can't handle listening to it like drag on word after word sprinkled with like dead words crammed on top of each other like burying my senses like nowhere i can find them making me totally numb i mean 'totally' like ya know what i mean like like totally absolutely really.
If you've seen the trailers, I suppose you expect this to be one of those stoner comedies, only it is not.
American Ultra is at most a dramedy, though its drama far outweighs its comedy percentage. The mood is somber, the actors are technically good enough, the premise is good, only — I found the execution lacking.
The more I watched this movie, the less excited I was about it. At times, it tried to be far too dramatic and touching, failing at both, and at other points, it did so unintentionally.
I liked the idea of the sleeper agent who is an ambitionless pothead, but the explanation to his condition was lackluster and not well thought- out.
Let's not even talk about the villain; he was comically one- dimensional and flat. Jesse Eisenberg, to be honest, bored me.
At no point did I find myself feeling for him. I am not sure if it is due to the casting or poor writing, but I found the main character wholly uninteresting.
However, I was interested in finding out more about him in the past, and was sorely disappointed when that was left to the wind. As for Kristen Stewart — meh.
I will admit to liking her mostly outside of her acting career but at critical points, even I will admit, it was like listening to her reading straight from the script.
I did like her physical dedication to the role, because she looked like shite, but that cannot save the role. As a whole — I was very disappointed by this film.
Aside from the false advertisement, which I wouldn't have minded if the movie had turned out successfully, the writing was unpolished, the actors bland, and the whole thing a mess.
In Liman, the pothead Mike Howell Jesse Eisenberg is hunted down by the CIA under the command of agent Adrian Yates Topher Grace.
However Mike is a skilled assassin trained by CIA and his mentor Victoria Lasseter Connie Britton activates him. Soon he learns that Yates wants to shutdown the program and kills him.
Now Mike and his girlfriend Phoebe Larson Kristen Stewart need to escape from a CIA team of assassins. This is another failed attempt of the studios to turn the annoying Jesse Eisenberg into an action actor.
However the film never works; the jokes are not funny and the story is absurd and ridiculous. My vote is three. Title Brazil : "American Ultra: Armados e Alucinados" "American Ultra: Armed and Alucinated".
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 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. The director of a bad movie teams up with the writer of another bad movie to make a slightly less bad movie starring two very annoying actors and a third annoying actor.
I feel like Paul Dano might have fit well into this movie, I'll never tire of hearing him whine and scream while a real man beats him with various objects.
Kristen Stewart, although I'm in love with her because she's so pretty, still hasn't taken an acting class. Stop doing that with your hands and your head, and make facial expressions please.
Bill Pullman was in this movie for about 30 seconds. A bunch of unmemorable crap and predictable stuff happens in it.
I predicted that it would suck before I watched it, and then I was right. It's one of those movies that I came very close to skipping but neglected to trust my instincts.
I could have spent an hour and a half looking at cat pictures and playing webgames and had a better time. I don't understand why anyone would make a film with no plot?
OK lets do it.. Not worth the time. I don't give movies bad reviews often. I am the kind of guy who enjoys movies for what they are, and can usually find something to enjoy even in less than great movies.
I don't require some deeper meaning in my movies, or even a stellar plot. This movie is truly bad. It isn't the worst movie of all time It isn't funny.
The action isn't good. The acting isn't good. The special effects are beyond bad. The plot is it's one redeeming feature, and it just isn't very good either.
If you are like me and check movies on here to see whether it is worth it or not to sit down and watch, either avoid this or go in knowing it is a 4 at best, and that is being generous.
