Jason Bourne is cool and all but he’s a trained killer. You expect him to kill people. It’s in his job title. It’s probably on his business card, in a nice font.
It’s way much more fun to watch a dude who has NO BUSINESS being a bad ass, being a bad ass. That’s the beauty behind American Ultra.
Jesse Eisenberg plays a stoner in shit town who’s past comes back to haunt him in the form of a government operation set to wipe him out. Kristen Stewart plays his pothead girlfriend and that’s even more reason to love her. I do. I so do.
If this Red Band trailer doesn’t convince you to see this movie, you’re probably as high as Eisenberg’s character.
