American Ultra | 2015
Mike Howell spends most of his time getting stoned, sitting behind the register of the Cash & Carry and writing a never-to-be-published graphic novel about a superhero monkey. Someday he'd like to take his bail-bondsman girlfriend Phoebe to Hawaii-if he can ever overcome the inexplicable panic attacks he experiences whenever he tries to leave the city limits. Unbeknownst to Mike, he is actually a sleeper agent created by the CIA, which has just targeted him for termination. As some of the agency's deadliest assets are unleashed upon his sleepy town, Mike's sympathetic former handler, Lasseter, activates his latent skills, turning the mild-mannered slacker into a superhuman killing machine. With an obsessed agent hot on his heels, the newly reborn super-assassin summons his inner action-hero to try and save himself and the love of his life from complete destruction.
