Everyone's getting smoked.

American Ultra is a fast-paced action comedy about Mike, a seemingly hapless and unmotivated stoner whose small-town life with his live-in girlfriend, Phoebe, is suddenly turned upside down. Unbeknownst to him, Mike is actually a highly trained, lethal sleeper agent. In the blink of an eye, as his secret past comes back to haunt him, Mike is thrust into the middle of a deadly government operation and is forced to summon his inner action-hero in order to survive.

Germany German (Deutsch)

Der Kiffer Mike und seine Freundin Phoebe führen ein ruhiges Leben in einer beschaulichen Kleinstadt. In seinem Alltag als Kiosk-Mitarbeiter erlebt Mike keine großen Abenteuer. Dennoch sind die beiden mit ihrem Leben und ihrem Dope super zufrieden. Mike plant sogar seiner großen Liebe Phoebe einen Heiratsantrag zu machen. Doch so einfach wird sein Leben nicht weiter dahinplätschern, denn Mike ist ein Schläfer-Agent der US-amerikanischen Regierung. Die plötzliche Entdeckung seiner Fähigkeiten macht ihn angeblich zu einem hohen Risiko und von nun an gilt es den unfreiwilligen Killer auszuschalten. Die Regierung auf den Fersen, fliehen Mike und Phoebe vor ihren Verfolgern. Plötzlich scheint das einfältige Kleinstadtleben doch seine Vorteile zu haben.

France French (Français)

Mike Howell mène une vie sans histoires dans une ville tranquille avec sa petite amie Phoebe. Désoeuvré, rien ne le branche vraiment. Il n'a aucune autre ambition que celle de faire passer le temps en fumant des joints. Jusqu'au jour où il se surprend à envoyer au tapis deux voleurs de voitures avec une technique de combat digne des plus grands experts en arts martiaux. Il est en fait un agent secret dormant surentrainé dont la mémoire a été effacée. Le voilà maintenant dans la ligne de mire d'une opération gouvernementale, qui vise à le faire disparaître ainsi que sa petite amie qui lui servait de couverture. La CIA propage une fausse alerte d'épidémie de malaria et place leur ville en quarantaine, les coupant du monde extérieur et lâchant à leur poursuite une armée d'hélicoptères, de drones de combat et d'agents tueurs. Mais les super capacités de Mike se sont réactivées et il compte bien ne pas se laisser faire.

Italy Italian (Italiano)
