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.
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.
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.
