American Ultra is the perfect movie if you don't mind checking your brain at the concession stands and enjoy a mindless popcorn flick which is basically Pineapple Express meets Bourne Identity. This may sound like I'm being critical but it fully understands and embrasses what it is. Undoubtedly there is chemistry between Eisenberg and Stewart which plays out well with their socially awkward personalities. All in all if you want to kill an hour and a half it will do the job otherwise I recommend waiting until it hits Redbox.

Was it honestly any good?
Depends on whether you are a stoner or not. It was definitely aimed at fans of stoner comedies more than anything else with quite a few nods to Kevin Smith style humour. Much funnier than Pineapple Express .......... but then I watched this baked off my face lol! :hilarious::naughty::naughty::wacky::smashed:

One review summed it up nicely, it's Clerks meets Bourne Identity, and it is EXTREMELY violent.

I saw it last week. Never smoked it, but I like stoner comedies and this was no exception. I thought the comedy and the violence were both very well done. The comedy is a bit 'wacky' though--not even sure if I'd call it "stoner" (there were certainly bits of stoner), but moreso just wacky and out there. Leguizamo was the surprise for me--very funny in this. (When are we going to get The Pest on bluray?)
