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.

Wahlberg's unbearable vanity vehicle, deafening and deadening.
For all the pretense of gritty realism, the film is weirdly unreal: the clock may be ticking, but everyone has a lot of time to kick back and talk.
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.
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.
When [Iko Uwais] gets to show his action chops, the movie does briefly and thrillingly come to life, only to crash back to the ground once Wahlberg returns to jerk up the joint.
The film's plot is so confusing that the first half plays like a barrage of randomly violent scenes stitched together from various other cliché movies.
Almost all of this message is drowned out by the sound of big guns heaving.
Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg have made four movies together, but nobody will be equating them with Ford-Wayne, Kurosawa-Mifune or Scorsese-De Niro at any point in the near or far future.
Ever wondered what it would look like if you strapped a camera on the back of a wild hyena and set him loose? Look no further than Mile 22.
Mile 22 had all the ingredients to be an absurdly entertaining B-movie and yet it falls short of those modest expectations because it takes itself way too seriously and fails to deliver the most basest thrills.
*Methodically touches thumbs to key points on fingers and palms*
Yeah, this was totally the worst movie of the summer.
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.
There are no approved quotes yet for this movie.
