Mixing action and stoner comedy isn’t exactly a new thing, but I’m not sure it’s ever been taken to quite the level of American Ultra. Jesse Eisenberg is just a chill stoner working in a convenience store, getting high, and hanging out with his girlfriend (Kristen Stewart), or at least that’s all he remembers. He also turns out to be a deadly assassin with training and skills that he has no memory of until they’re triggered.
It’s like Chuck meets Pineapple Express, and it looks like a lot of fun. Plus, it taught me a new way to kill a man with a frying pan.
