A Comedy That's Actually Funny
Verified purchase
This is no Zombieland BUT I still gave it 4 stars. My reasons are as follows:
Very good performances from Jesse Eisenberg (who I adore) and Kristen Stewart (who I'd never really liked before).
A ludicrous story line (NO SPOILERS) but one you could just about believe possible.
Good supporting performances.
A great script, dozens of chuckles and many genuine laugh out loud moments.
Definitely worth a watch.

Very Very Average
Verified purchase
Shame really as the trailer looked really slick but for me it was average and I felt I wasted my time watching it and money purchasing it. The acting was ok...ish(but they have done so much better in previous films), story poor, disjointed and predictable. Nothing special about the action, I felt it was trying to emulate so many other A+ action movies but just failed to deliver. Wish I could get a refund!

Utter Rubbish
Verified purchase
Great actors in Kristen and Jesse but the plot is really scraping the bottom of the barrel. Not even a D-movie. It is a shame such talented actors should lend credibility to such a trashy production. A wasted opportunity in every respect and damning verdict on the state of American filmmaking: devoid of creativity and utterly degenerate.

I maybe biased about Kristen Stewart but she can always play a good role and this movie is a fast paced clever story. Not for everyone but I enjoyed this movie so much I bought the DVD

very very very good fast paced witty action movie with a hint of poking fun at itself, it is nice to see jesse eisenberg playing a character other than nerdy/geek, highly recommend as it is entertaining with good special effects(blowing things up etc..) and good dialogue which is not always the case in the action genre, i absolutely loved it

Great movie
Verified purchase
A good entertaining film, with Jesse Eisenberg's quirky style of acting, suited to playing a sleeper 'stoner' CIA operative, and Stewart as his "girlfriend" , good supporting cast too.

If you liked the Sam Rockwell film Mr Right you will like this .
Really enjoyed it a good film with an excellent cast.
I would recommend it.
I purchased it as a download, so just to say the vision and the sound was very good.
