American Ultra

American Ultra
Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart and Connie Britton

Rated: R strong bloody violence, language throughout, drug use and some sexual content.
Reviewed by: Dave  
Release date: August 21, 2015 Released by: Lions Gate Films

American Ultra leans too heavily on plots from other better films. Trying to combine this overflow of previous ideas becomes its downfall. The script samples a number of films including Telefon, The Bourne Identity, and Red; to name a few. 

It has some original plot devices, and is somewhat watchable, but not enough happens to keep it very interesting . Ultra is being marketed as an action/comedy (whatever that means?) 

American Ultra wasn't very comedic, and the action; we've seen it all before.
