Reviews: Mile 22 (2018)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Matt Donato @ Flickering Myth
    • Excerpt: My favorite part of MILE 22 is when John Malkovich’s character yells at Mark Wahlberg’s character for continuing to launch into bad monologues. At least MILE 22 understands how bad MILE 22 is.

  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: Welcome to the first action movie of the Trump era, wherein civil liberties are a distant fantasy and “no man left behind” has been forgotten, yet this is all “a higher form of patriotism.”
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: The script is a mess, the plot is near indecipherable, and the editing may be some of the worst in recent memory; however, my pulse raced. I was tense. Mile 22 has no idea what it wants to be, but it may physically impact the audience enough for them to not notice.
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: Flawed, frustrating… and strangely fascinating.
  • Frank Ochieng @ Screen Anarchy
    • Excerpt: Sadly, this derivative demolition derby is all gore galore without any ounce of conviction. Clearly, this roughshot romp feels like a showy excuse for Wahlberg to channel in his Rambo-esque tendencies as he coughs up another trigger-and-disfigure actioner offering synthetic thrills.
  • Marcio Sallem @ Cinema com Crítica [Portuguese]
  • Amir Siregar @ Amir at the Movies [Indonesian]
    • Excerpt: Badly written. Badly acted. Badly edited. Badly made. A huge, huge mess of a movie.
