American Ultra

There's nothing more dangerous than a stoned cold killer


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

Tomatometer quote icon American Ultra has some interesting ideas, but like its stoned protagonist, it's too easily distracted to live up to its true potential.
