Jesse Eisenberg Shows Off Bourne-Level Fighting In the Action-Comedy American Ultra

By Octavio Karbank


It's refreshing to see actors deviate from their traditional roles. Such is the case in American Ultra, featuring Jesse Eisenberg as a pot-smoking doofus, who also ends up being a Jason Bourne-level fighting bad*ss. Hell, I didn't see it coming either. Throw in Kristen Stewart and the results are surprisingly, and ridiculously, bombastic and hilarious. I think we have a real winner here, folks! At least I hope we do.
