Amer­i­can Ul­tra

TV & Satellite Week - - Films -

Jesse Eisen­berg’s dorky small-town slacker dis­cov­ers he is ac­tu­ally a CIA sleeper agent with deadly skills in this darkly funny, ul­tra-vi­o­lent com­edy thriller – think Bill and Ted thrust into the midst of The Bourne Iden­tity.

Eisen­berg’s un­likely ac­tion hero has to fend off the as­sas­sins sent to liq­ui­date him, while also striv­ing to pro­tect his girl­friend, played by Kris­ten Ste­wart. The film’s comic and ac­tion modes some­times jar, but Ad­ven­ture­land stars Eisen­berg and Ste­wart are fab­u­lous to­gether. 2015,15, 96MIN
