Storyline Heading
Twenty three-year-old Mitch lost his parents to a tragic car accident at the age of fourteen, and his girlfriend to a terrorist attack just as they were engaged. Seeking revenge, he is enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy as a black ops recruit.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Thriller - This is a violent and brutal action film that may give pause to parents of pre- teen/young teen fans of lead Dylan O'Brien's more youth-oriented film and TV work, such as THE MAZE RUNNER and TEEN WOLF. Michael Keaton has a very showy supporting role, and Taylor Kitsch fans may enjoy his change of pace villain turn. Bloody violence, language, and brief nudity make this not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average ..."American Assassin" is not what it pretends to be, and both he and the audience will have a more satisfying experience if he pretends he's in the movie that should've been. The cast does the best it can with material that too often mistakes exposition for psychology.

NY Post Full Review
Good Immensely satisfying action thriller.. The violence is either exceptional or horrific, depending on your level of squeamishness. Throughout the movie, throats are slit and people are shot with abandon — and not with the carefree elegance of James Bond. These offings feel real.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Above Average O'Brien doesn't just play the role; he nails it, investing Rapp with the star shine of a young Tom Cruise and the acting chops of a seasoned pro. Even when logic goes up in flames, the film speeds ahead like a heat-seeking missile.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Poor ...all of this young man's manufactured trauma gives way to a lot of overly mannered brooding and righteous indignation that swiftly threatens to weigh down the film with its overbearing turgidity. It's impossible to take it seriously as anything other than an Abercrombie & Fitch ad posing as a political thriller.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 55 moviegoers:
TEENS: The lone male loved it, as did three of the four females. One female rated it just "average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Two males loved "American Assassin" and one enjoyed it very much, rating it "above average."
ADULTS: Half the males loved this movie. Another 25%, or so, enjoyed it very much. I'm a little surprised that over 20% only rated it "average." To me it certainly seemed like a "guys" movie, but the ladies actually enjoyed it slightly more. A full 65% of them loved "American Assassin" with another 30% indicating that they enjoyed it very much. Less than 10% rated it as low as "average," which isn't a bad review, it's just a bit on the low side.
