Blu-ray Release: American Ultra

November 24, 2015

American Ultra Blu-rayToday, Elevation Pictures is releasing American Ultra on Blu-ray.  Mike Howell (Jesse Eisenberg) is a constantly anxious stoner, who lives a mundane life with his girlfriend Phoebe Larson (Kristen Stewart).  But when he suddenly discovers that he’s actually a highly trained agent who had his memory wiped and went rogue, and is now in threat of being killed, they end up on the run from the government.

Although I wasn’t really the biggest fan of this stoner action comedy, American Ultra does have its moments, including some likeable chemistry between the two capable leads.  There is inevitably an audience that will enjoy this cult classic wannabe, and curious viewers should feel free to check it out at home, with whatever enhancements deemed necessary.  My full review can be found right here.

The Blu-ray includes commentary with director Nima Nourizadeh, a gag reel and two featurettes.

American Ultra is 96 minutes and rated 14A.
