Updated November 6, 2017 73 votes 25 voters 3.7k views8 items

American Ultra movie quotes follow one stoner kid who doesn't know it, but is really a highly lethal sleeper agent who must fight for his life and that of his girlfriend. The action comedy film was written by Max Landis and directed by Nima Nourizadeh. American Ultra opened in theaters on August 21, 2015.

In American Ultra, Mike Howell (Jesse Eisenberg) is your typical 20-something stoner. Working in a convenience store, he doesn't have a ton of life goals, but is madly in love with girlfriend Phoebe Larson (Kristen Stewart). But just before he can propose to her, a task friend Rose (John Leguizamo) helps him with, his life is flipped upside down.

After a visit to his store by Victoria Lasseter (Connie Britton), Mike finds men messing with his car and finds that he has skills to kill those men with nothing more than a spoon. Frightened and confused, Mike later learns that he is a trained asset who just killed two CIA agents and is now seen as a rouge threat who must be eliminated. But can one stoner and his girlfriend keep themselves safe against an army of trained agents? Good question.

Topher Grace, Walton Goggins, Bill Pullman and Tony Hale all co-star in American Ultra which opens alongside other films such as Straight Outta Compton, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Fantastic Four, and Ricki and the Flash.

    Mike Howell: How's it going, man?
    Rose: How's it going, baby?
    Mike Howell: I really appreciate you doing this for me.
    Rose: This is some serious proposal that you're doing. You're a sensitive kid.
    Mike Howell: Well, I love her.
    Rose: You gotta give it all when you love her like that. Know what I'm saying? Want to get drunk and get some booty in your face?
    Mike Howell: It's 8:15 in the morning.

    Mike is a normal guy working a normal job in a pretty normal relationship. While he does partake in more than his fair amount of marijuana, overall, he's a good kid, especially in his planning of a proposal for equally as normal girlfriend Phoebe.

    Adrian Yates: This guy is a trained killer. We made him. He is a security risk.

    Adrian explains the plot of the film, quite simply. They trained Mike as a killer, then lost him and now that he's activated, he's a risk to everyone.

    Mike Howell: We'll take my car and we'll go get stoned.
    Phoebe Larson: You want to go get high right now?
    Mike Howell: Okay, no, no, no, I recognize that now as like a faux pas.

    When life gets tough for Mike, he falls back on his old standby, smoking weed. But in this case, as Phoebe reminds him, getting high might not solve this problem.

    Mike Howell: The old frying pan bullet trick

    In some type of strange mix of luck and skill, Mike kills a man by firing his weapon toward a cast iron frying pan he tossed in the air and watching as the bullet bounced off the frying pan into his enemy. He makes it seem so easy when in reality, it's just movie magic.
