Marina Antunes [Celluloid 05.28.15] action comedy

American Ultra is the weird stoner comedy action movie you didn't know you wanted to see. It's like Harold and Kumar crossed with Bourne and though it sounds like a disaster, it actually looks ridiculously fun.

Written by Max Landis (who previously impressed masses with Chronicle) and directed by Nima Nourizadeh (of Project X infamy), American Ultra stars the brilliantly cast Jesse Eisenberg as Mike, a stoner who also happens to be a sleeper operative for some government agency. Said agency tries to activate him but it doesn't work and the botched attempt does something to Mike and suddenly, he's tapping into skills he didn't know he had (and can't remember how he got). Now he and his girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart) find themselves on the run from the agency which is trying to eliminate Mike, an asset now considered a rogue agent.

It's exactly what you think an action movie about a stoner sleeper agent would look like except it actually looks good, has waaaaay more drugs and features John Leguizamo as a dealer. GOLD.

American Ultra opens August 21.

Recommended Release: Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle
