Mile 22 (2018)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Mile 22 lets the bullets fly -- and not much else -- in a thrill-deficient action thriller whose title proves sadly fitting for a film that feels close to a marathon endurance test.

Aided by a top-secret tactical command team, Silva must retrieve and transport an asset who holds life-threatening information to Mile 22 for extraction before the enemy closes in.

Critic Reviews for Mile 22

All Critics (167) | Top Critics (28)

A confused film that, for all of its macho bluster and propulsive forward motion, doesn't really know where it's going.

The two times Uwais is allowed to bust out his fighting moves, the scenes are Cuisinarted into incomprehensible shreds, and the point becomes not the precision and virtuosity of his skills, but the broken bones and spurting gore that end each mano-a-mano.

You have no idea what's going on. This movie is so overly edited, it's all shaky cam.

Aug 17, 2018 | Rating: 2/10 | Full Review…

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 sat down.

Aug 17, 2018 | Full Review…

It delivers plenty of action but not a lot of thrills, and its copious bloodshed comes from characters who aren't fully fleshed out.

Berg and Wahlberg deliver a relentlessly paced, addictively slick paramilitary thriller actively catering to fans of gonzo brutality and turbocharged machismo.

Audience Reviews for Mile 22

There is something dynamic and urgent about the plot at first, but soon this generic propagandist movie descends into mindless chaos (with an awfully shaky camera and choppy editing that don't even allow us to locate ourselves geographically) and toward a preposterous ending.
