Watch out, Jason Bourne: you’re not the only sleeper agent in town! Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart star in ‘American Ultra.’ It looks like a much more comedic Jason Bourne ;). Jesse plays a stoner who is actually a “sleeper agent” as the result of a secret government program to turn ordinary citizens into super agents when necessary.
Once Jesse’s activated as a sleeper agent, the stone starts killing people while using things such as spoons, and he has no idea how he did it! However, at one point he admits, he feels “pretty amazing” ;). The stoner turns into a butt-kicking super spy: I guess that would make someone feel pretty amazing- LOL.
Kristen plays his girlfriend. The two are forced to go on the offensive once a plan is set in motion to kill Jesse. ‘American Ultra’ looks like a pretty creative take on the more dramatic, action spy thrillers that we’ve seen, from the ‘Jason Bourne’ series to Angelina Jolie’s hit movie, ‘Salt.’ Check out the trailer below. I think I’m going to see this one in the theater! How about you? ‘American Ultra’ is scheduled to hit theaters on August 21.
