    Anyone with the faintest interest in seeing a rated R (for violence) movie called American Assassin- see it. Depending on your expectations, it will either meet or exceed them. Here is what the film does surprisingly well. First, it shows far more effectively than does the book how Rapp goes from innocent terrorism victim to someone so special and talented he comes to the attention of the CIA. Second, the story craftily balances clarity and sophistication, rare for a fast paced, violent thriller. The plot has no gaping holes and makes sense. But, you do have to pay close attention to the “talky’ scenes and make some basic logical connections to accurately grasp the plot. Third, the movie leaves you with a surprising amount of food for thought. After the movie my friend and I has fun discussing some of the themes-Survivor’s guilt, revenge, redemption, the use and abuse of power, and the various natures of service and sacrifice to name a few.

    If you watch the trailer, this movie should be a good one, but then you look at the reviews, most of them look like advertising, the wording is so commercial that they don't look like real reviews from real viewers, but just an additional advert to tell people how good this movie is, it really made a negative impact to bring people to watch this movie. I hope this advice will draw the attention of those parties who want to make this movie rating on the top of everything.

    I have no idea why this movie got negative reviews from critics. I had a blast. Fantastic action, reasonable story. Stop the over analyzing and trying to make every plot point make 100% sense. Just enjoy the action.

    OUTSTANDING Flick!!! Michael Keaton (Whose Birth name is actually Michael Douglas! It seems there was "another guy" named Michael Douglas already making movies:) is Terrific! This is one of his, if not his Best, roles...Had never heard of Dylan O'Brien before this movie, however he is Extremely talented and makes Quite an impression in the lead role! If you enjoy Action~Thriller movies, Go see this movie!! The movie ends with the possibility of a sequel, which I would certainly Welcome! Very Well done!

    This action movie is very entertaining and of course lots of violence along with fast car racing. It had it all. Also, it seems that we may have a new Jason Bourne for future movies.
