Mr. Right is an action/romantic comedy directed by Paco Cabezas, based on a script by Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra). The film focus' on Francis, the Mr. Right of the title, who is a highly skilled hitman, with superior reflexes, which helps to make him an effective killer. Having a strong moral compass, Francis now only kills the people who try to hire him, since "murder is wrong." He develops an instant connection with Martha, who he believes has similar skills, and it might turn out that she would be the perfect match as well.
Mr. Right is a very fun and enjoyable film, which I can best describe as what you would get if you took Sam Rockwell's character from Seven Psychopaths and threw him into a romantic comedy with Anna Kendrick. Despite the 17 year age difference between the two, Rockwell and Kendrick have great chemistry together and it's fun seeing Kendrick play someone who is a little more unhinged. Altogether, Mr. Right is an incredibly funny and highly enjoyable "hit man meets girl" comedy.
