American Ultra

92 Mins

Stoner store clerk Mike Howell (Jesse Eisenberg) suffers panic attacks whenever he tries to leave the backwoods hometown he's shacked up in with his live-in girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart). What he doesn't realise is that he's a sleeper government agent with unrivalled martial arts skills - and he's just been activated. Unfortunately, when a rogue CIA handler (Topher Grace) decides Mike is a liability, it's not just weed that's about to get smoked... Roll up for an action comedy that unwinds like Bourne with a bong.
