This was far better than I expected. When my best friend wanted to see this, I wasn’t sure what to fully think. The trailers looked average to me and I expected very little. Much to my surprise, this isn’t your average stoner movie. This one has plenty of creativity. What really makes this movie is the able cast, especially the two leads. Jessie Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart play off one another beautifully and have terrific chemistry with each other. You’re able to care about them and what they are going through. Topher Grace is an above average villain as well. For the action fans out there, I think you’ll be pleased. There are enough explosions and fight scenes to satisfy.

This movie has a little bit of everything and plenty of creativity. It’s a bit of a shame that this didn’t make much noise in theaters because it deserved to. Not everyone will get the satisfaction I got out of it, but I recommend it highly

7.5/10
