Everything GREAT About American Ultra!

2 293
American Ultra! Based on box office returns, you probably missed this one. I got lucky and didn't and fell in love pretty quickly. It's by no means a masterpiece, but I think the biggest problem was people being sold the wrong movie. I'll get more into that in the video! Here's everything right with American Ultra!

Your Gary Stu argument misses the mark. Once you understand that he was trained for years through brainwashing government programs. Force fed knowledge that would aid assassin training.

The observation you made about the wound on her lip is exactly what got Becky Lynch over. She was doing great but when she got her nose busted by Nia Jax the visual of this beautiful woman with such a not pretty (yet completely badass) wound made her the hottest act in the entire wrestling business for a while. It even led to her having "The Man" gimmick which was perfect. Seeing her just not be stereotypically pretty was jarring, but it did so much for her, and badass women are always nice to see. Watching your content validates some of them random thoughts I have while watching movies, and adds so much more to the movies I love. Thanks for doing these, you've made me realize how much I actually love movies.

Concerning wish fulfillment, we see dudes in this context because that's a dude's power fantasy. So, what is a woman's no consequences fantasy? The handler for the beast isn't a bad start.

I was *extremely* torn when I left this movie, mainly because I don't like that much gore. However, overall it left so much of an impact on me that I think I enjoyed it, mainly due to the principal characters and the script.

6:50 Was that disarming actually from that scene there? Because Rose is holding what looks like a Barretta and then Mike is holding what looks like a Barretta but in the close-up of the gun snatch, it's a Glock. That's a serious pet peeve of mine in movies and TV. I wish I could be the weapons supervisor for them all.

So glad you did a video on this movie!!
It's so well done. On so many levels.
I meant to fall asleep watching this video (and letting the next ones just keep playing bc I like having positive stuff, stuff that brings me joy, etc playing on my TV while I'm asleep :) ), but I just kept agreeing with every win and getting all excited that someone else noticed certain little things here and there, or the tree convo being just, so beautiful that I actually show it to people (and I've posted it on Twitter and FB a few times) and I have a clip bookmarked on YouTube for that specific reason lol.
Anywho, I love the dialog. I love that you notice all kinds of new details each time.
I agree about how endearing and honest their relationship is.
And I cannot believe you just mentioned Mr Right!! I just rewatched it lol. It's one that you either really get a kick out of it you probably bailed on maybe 20min in.
But back to American Ultra. I think it did know what it was trying to be, and I quite liked that about it (it felt like every single minute detail waz purposeful, and it all added up to something multilayered, interesting and surprisingly honest and authentic).

I went so long without watching because it was poised as an comedy...when I started watching and it was surprising that it was a brutally shown action movie. Made the movie way better since I had no idea what I was about to watch and was shown a completely different movie.

Also, I love this movie. This and mr right are the kind of hitman flicks that are entertaining to me. I need a fun story, interesting characters, romance, and some levity to compliment the badass fight scenes. (The kingsman church scene will always be the best fight scene tho).

SUCH A GOOD MOVIE!! I got this movie because I love both of them as actors. My partner was teasing me about it because he, like a lot of people, fell into the narrative that K stu is a bad actor. He sat and watch and by the end was like "that was an awesome freaking movie." More people need to see this. I hate that it went under the radar. Everyone in it is so good and the action is equally hilarious and thrilling.

Kristen Stewart is a great actor. Full stop.
I only watched this movie because she was in it, and that was a very smart move. What a really good movie it is. It's reminiscent of a lot of 'protagonist has skills and powers (or a unique position in life) that he was unaware of' plots from a lot of s-f short stories from the Golden Age, and of course it's probably not a coincidence that it got made after the enormous success of Jason Bourne franchise. But that doesn't prevent it from being very entertaining - and that's what we're all looking for, right? Something to keep the thanatophobic brain quiet for a while?
Kristen Stewart was the first and only (so far) actress to win the French Oscar, the _Cesar._ We all know how chauvinistic the French are, so for her to win the award tells you that she must have put in an outstanding performance.
I will watch anything with her in it.
Uhhh... except _Twilight._ Sparkly vampires and 'hot' werewolves are a suspension of disbelief too far for me....

Can anyone tell me how CinemaWins (or anyone for that matter), gets their footage for their commentaries. Does they rip a DVD?
How about other Youtube videos? Do videomakers have to stream and record to get footage of other videos?
It's always bothered me that I have no idea how something I love so much is made.

I really wanted to like this movie (mostly because of what you said in the conclusion). The trailers were totally different, and set up an entirely different narrative. However the reveal for Pheobe I found to be a huge letdown. I wanted so bad for her to be equally as clueless as to what's happening, but instead it became a cliched pile of tropes.

This is one of my 'guilty pleasures', I really enjoy it. I have the BluRay so I don't ever have to worry about some damn streaming service modifying it.
I do disagree that Mike is a Gary Stu. Rey (Star Wars) is a Mary Sue because she becomes the "Star Wars Ultra-Jedi" without the slightest hint at training (aside from that throw-away scene with Leia in TRoS). Mike, on the other hand, is fully trained with drug and hypnotically-induced suppressed memories. Given how ruthless Krueger (nice German sounding name) is I'm surprised they even let Mike live.

hey just a suggestion and would be really cool, but considering Your Name has overtaken Spiritied Away as Japan's highest grossing animated movie, would you maybe consider it for a future video? It is still a huge part of the anime scene and like i said, is the highest grossing animated movie to come out of Japan. Would just be nice to see :)

Whenever I haven't seen a movie you review, I will go watch it before watching your video. I know, if you've reviewed it, it's a film worth seeing, even if I wasn't interested before. I did that with American Ultra and I loved it! Thanks for what you do, it's genuinely one of my favorite things on YouTube.
