Director: Peter Berg
Stars: Mark Wahlberg, Lauren Cohan, Iko Uwais
An elite American intelligence officer, aided by a top-secret tactical command unit, tries to smuggle a mysterious police officer with sensitive information out of the country.
The movie delivers plenty of action but not a lot of thrills. One idiotic fight and car chase after another…The really depressing thought is that they are clearly setting the audience up for a sequel. Director Peter Berg and his action hero Mark Wahlberg are predictable once again.
For a movie so excited to tell a story about the CIA’s most highly-prized and least understood unit, it sure doesn’t do much to ensure you leave any more informed than you were when you came to the cinema. But to be honest “Mile 22” delivers precisely what’s expected from a violent, action film. And there are some good twists, so if you enjoy an average action movie you’ll probably be pretty pleased with your decision.
