Mile 22

Critics 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.

  • If you fancy 90 minutes of nameless extras getting shot in the face, go ahead. Otherwise, it's mostly the sh---iest of sh---y s--t.

  • An interesting experiment but not a successful one.

  • 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.

Audience Reviews for Mile 22

    Mile 22 is an action-packed, if somewhat rote, espionage thriller. When an informant with information about the location of dirty bomb materials makes a deal for extradition to the United States a highly skilled CIA team has to get him 22 miles a to covert pick-up sight. Mark Wahlberg, Lauren Cohan, Ronda Rousey, and John Malkovich lead the cast and give pretty decent performances. And director Peter Berg does a good job at bringing the action and at making it intense and exciting. However, the script is kind of weak; as there are several loose plot threats and the "who's doing what and why" can be hard to follow at times. Yet despite its problems, Mile 22 is an entertaining and provocative film.

    *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.
