Parody of Jason Bourne and any stoner film you can name. Stewart shows no emotion along with her limited acting ability as always. Perfect as Bella in the Twilight Saga since her character was supposed to be wooden and uninteresting here she is wooden and uninteresting and you wonder why anyone would be willing to kill for her hence the explanation that they must be a brainwashed secret agent. No chemistry between the two leads which isn’t a surprise since Stewart has no chemistry with anyone she is paired with. Can’t say you shouldn’t watch this all I can say is that I wish I hadn’t.

Zombieland was good! This movie unfortunately was not! The acting was not very good, although played by good actors. This movie should have shown a little more realism instead of faking it way all through the film. I don't recommend watching this movie, Unless you are just looking for noise filler.

Do not waste your time to even rent this. Such a bore.

Rated 1/10. A very silly and weird movie, with no real plot. As well, the bad acting and gratuitous violence, makes for a real bomb of a movie.

I'd have to concur with the commenters below by missmoshii, light and darkly humorous . . . and MeredithW.
[Sidebar: I think the first movie I saw Eisenberg in was a humorous werewolf movie with Christina Ricci, a surprisingly good flick. He seems to excel in the offbeat roles.]

Stoner comedy meets bloody, hardcore action film in this underrated gem full of “hey, it’s that guy!” moments.

It's just not good. The premise and setup were ok. The idea of a stoner comedy/spy movie mashup is potentially enjoyable. But instead of action and comedy there are angsty serious talks and prolonged emotional discussions and it's all super dramatic and serious and convinced of it's own importance. It turns into more of a stoner drama, which just doesn't work. The movie takes an inherently absurd premise and then plays with deadly earnest seriousness, and it just fails. What jokes there are mostly fall flat, and the action scenes are laughably bad. If you are already disposed to disliking Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart this won't change your mind, though I think they do the best they can with what they are given in this movie.

Horrid and stupid. Couldn't make it past the first 20 minutes. Not worth your time or the electricity.

Some fan/fans seem to have all the good quotes posted in IMDb:

However, did not find this in IMDb, when Mike was surprised that his trick shot worked like a charm:

Mike: Wow. The ol' frying pan bullet trick.

and this full quote by Victoria:
... Pardon me for saying it, sir. But that is a puppy worth saving. That is a $400 million puppy. And you have him sitting in a holding cell right now. You're just going to put him down?
