American Ultra

Comedy . Action . Sci-Fi

American Ultra is a fast-paced action comedy about Mike, a seemingly hapless and unmotivated stoner whose small-town life with his live-in girlfriend, Phoebe, is suddenly turned upside down. Unbeknownst to him, Mike is actually a highly trained, lethal sleeper agent. In the blink of an eye, as his secret past comes back to haunt him, Mike is thrust into the middle of a deadly government operation and is forced to summon his inner action-hero in order to survive.

More Info:
  • Amy Nicholson

    Nima Nourizadeh’s American Ultra is a bloody valentine attached to a bomb. It’s violent, brash, inventive and horrific, and perhaps the most romantic film of the year.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    The screenplay is deceptively tight, even as the main characters seem to be buzzing aimlessly through the proceedings. Like the most successful films of the drug-hazed genre, this movie only appears to be going off the rails.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    American Ultra is one of those geeky genre mishmashes that’s very clever about being dumb.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Leah Greenblatt

    Check your brain at the popcorn-butter pump in the lobby and enjoy it.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Barbara VanDenburgh

    That American Ultra works as well as it does is a testament to its two lead performances.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Kate Taylor

    This is not a spoiler alert; it’s a tip: If you go to see American Ultra, stay for the credits, right to the end. They are animated and provide a mini fourth act for the film, a little action movie starring a super simian and a beautiful (human) damsel; they are an amusing addendum, but mainly they tell you a lot about where American Ultra’s heart lies, deep in comic-book territory.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    A lot Bourne and a little bong, the action too earnest to be a stoner movie and too quirky to be an action flick. Therein lies the beauty of director Nima Nourizadeh’s Ultra: It exists to entertain in its own oddball universe, munchies optional.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    It's fun in a bad way and bad in a fun way, and that’ll do for this late in the summer.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Elise Nakhnikian

    A Bourne movie turned just askew enough to be funny, American Ultra trains a bemused eye on a trope ripe for a ribbing.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    If you go, expect a diverting summer action adventure with occasional laughs, not a diverting stoner comedy with occasional action.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    While Nourizadeh's just-for-fun head trip is no more ambitious than its long-haired pothead of a main character, it delivers on its sole goal: to entertain and to surprise.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    Part stoner comedy, midnight movie, outsiders’ love story and ultraviolent B-movie, this intriguing film is given real soul by stars Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart, even if director Nima Nourizadeh’s ambitions end up being more laudable than the results.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Kate Erbland

    The bone-crunching action and relentlessly blood-letting feels out of place, and as those sequences start appearing with more frequency, the film loses much of its rangy charm.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    American Ultra is undemanding late-summer studio fare — ultraforgettable. But I’ll remember the faces of Eisenberg and Stewart, who are easy to ridicule but, whatever the pundits say, very much movie stars.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The movie is replete with bloody encounters, sly asides, and one-liners, but the tone is awkward and uneven. There are also some serious structural problems that we're supposed to brush aside.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    American Ultra has a clever premise. But it misses several opportunities to at least comment on, if not skewer, the spy movies that it only halfheartedly pokes fun at. As it is, it’s content to generate a low-grade buzz, rather than deliver a true high.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    What begins as a clever action-comedy a la “Pineapple Express” or Eisenberg’s earlier “Zombieland” devolves into a standard shoot-’em-up, with gore splashed around to distract us from the dearth of wit.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    If the filmmakers had opted to play things closer to the vest, this could have been the clever "Pineapple Express"-meets-"The Bourne Identity" mashup it wants to be instead of the shallow, gratuitously violent exercise it actually is.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Eisenberg and Stewart stay appealing to the last. The movie, not so much.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    American Ultra is a clumsy mix of courtship and gunpowder, passion and horror leading to a romantically sick-humored conclusion. The end nearly justifies director Nima Nourizadeh's means of getting there. But not quite.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    Too often plays like an earnest yet unsatisfying adaptation of a cult graphic novel, with most of the charm lost in translation.

    Variety Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    A genre mash that's mildly amusing until it can't think of anything else to do besides flop around in the deep end of conspicuous gore.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Mark Olsen

    The action set-pieces and the comedic character scenes in the film seem to be taking turns and are rarely brought together in a meaningful way.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Seth Stevenson

    A mere clever conceit isn’t enough, and here, the action smells stale and the humor staler. There’s no explosion we haven’t seen before, no quip that feels fresh and new. I suggest you save American Ultra to stream on a lazy snow day this winter — even then, the deep sleeper who needs to be awoken might be you.

    Slate Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    This stoners-meet-government-assassins mashup is as meandering and paranoid as a guy toking up in front of City Hall. Sometimes that’s amusing, but most of the time it’s tiring.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    By turns sweet, sadistic, and silly, American Ultra will probably make a stronger impression if you watch it while high.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Unfortunately both Eisenberg and Stewart, both frequently brilliant, are on unsure footing here. The movie simply doesn't know if it wants to be Jason Bourne or Cheech and Chong.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    Artless and unpleasant, this is the kind of late-summer swill that gives August a bad name.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Nourizadeh and Landis are clearly going for a Tarantino level of blood-soaked dark humor, and while their cast is game, the film’s bursts of violence grow tiresome as its plot gets more and more ludicrous and hard to swallow.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    American Ultra tries to combine a sweet, slacker romance with a slick, super-violent action flick. If that sounds jarring to you, that’s probably because it is. Full Review
  • Rodrigo Perez

    American Ultra hopes to leave you both shellshocked and blissfully stoned, but as perfect storm of aggressively repulsive choices, it’s a queasy bad trip worth avoiding at all costs.
