American Ultra, movie review

This movie puts a comedic twist on the whole sleeper agent idea. You have a character who has been brainwashed into being a super assassin agent. Then the program was shut down, so he was brainwashed into forgetting. This movie is out to make a mockery of other movies who used this as their premise.

Yes, the newly activated agent has some moves that kick in when he needs them, but he’s an idiot who points out they left the loaded gun next to the bad guy, which then prompts the bad guy to start shooting them. The plot is weak, but the characters and dialogue are what make it work.

If you enjoyed movies like, “Shaun of the Dead” and “Tropic Thunder” then you will love this movie.

Welcome to my blog! I live in Florida with my husband and our Kitty, a rescued Abyssinian. I have several novels published under the name "Nina Schluntz". I’m an avid movie goer, so most of my blog posts will be a review of the most recent movie I happened to see. Sometimes I’ll mix it up and read a book too. Or… my favorite, I’ll see the movie then read the book it was based on! View all posts by mizner13
