    HE WAS ARMED WITH A SPOON, SIR., September 13, 2015

    The Movie Guy (United States) –

    This review is from: American Ultra (Amazon Video)
    Mike (Jesse Eisenberg) is a stoner who lives with Phoebe (Kristen Stewart) in Liman, West Virginia. He works at a convenience store and invests his disposable income into mind altering substances. Like TRUMAN, he has issues when he attempts to leave town, such as panic attacks. He likes to draw and create wild stoner stories. At 25 minutes or so into the film (midpoint plot spoiler) Mike becomes “activated” as he is part of a CIA project called Wiseman. Yates (Topher Grace) wants to destroy Mike, while Victoria (Connie Britton) is out to save him.

    The film becomes a fight of Mike vs the CIA using psychotic killers. Mike must come up with ways to kill people and defend himself that would make Bourne envious.

    This was a fun film. I enjoyed the characters and the fact it could lead to a series.

    Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

    Much Worthier Of Being The Fourth Bourne Movie Than Bourne Legacy, August 25, 2015
    By 

    Absolutely loved this movie. Somehow or the other, I ended up at this film expecting a complete disaster. It had me from the beginning. Topher Grace, Leguizamo, Stewart, Arrested Development guy turn in a host of great performances. Eisenberg shockingly did an amazing job as well. The role just worked for him. There are a bunch of homages to the Bourne movies as well. It’s somewhere in between a serious movie and a parody of Bourne, but the end result is great.

    I also want to add that this was one of the few times I actually continued watching the movie as the credits came on. Very clever and it tied into the story.

    It’s a shame it underperformed at theaters though. Sadly, I’ve come to the fact that movie theaters are slowly dying and need to change their business model to get audiences back to see good movies somehow.

    I’d love to see a sequel.
