Mile 22 Wiki
I loved this movie and was surprised to see it not rated higher. I love the type of action action this was and the ending how it was completely unexpected. So often movies end the same way and this one didn’t. These are just the type of movies I will go see over and over.
Wahlbergs acting in this was waaaay overdone. Not sure what kind of character he was supposed to be playing. Lots os shooting, that’s about it.
Ignore the deep-dives into the movie and watch it for simple entertainment value - this is where it shines. It's an interesting story with superb action scenes and plot twists. Yes, it's not without its flaws but it delivers nonetheless. I enjoyed it and while I may be easily amused and can overlook the shortcomings, I suspect that there are many out there who are just like me. It's easy to appreciate as long as you don't try too hard to dissect the movie. I liked it. It kept me glued to my seat, made me rethink how the movie played out and left me with several, "wow, didn't see that coming" moments. Loved it and I hope they make a sequel! :)
It will keep you entertained for sure
While I do agree the movie has its flaws, But, I really enjoyed it. Then again I am a Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg fan so as long as its not a Ted movie I would watch it. I read they are working on a sequel already and may turn this into a franchise kind of like the Bourne series. I hope those involved in making these other films can do a better job for the others.
As usual, Wahlberg is a good action figure. Lauren Cohen is both beautiful and a great actress. Loved the movie for what it is - entertainment.
I had low expectations but ended up really enjoying the movie and hoping it is the start of a new franchise. It really is a good action movie with the elements you would expect: over the top scenarios, over the top characters, some decent humor, and lots of shooting and explosions. Simply stated: put your mind in neutral and enjoy the ride.
The opening was great; but, after the first few minutes the plot moves all around and I’m okay with movies pushing reality this one went over board and I do not recommend buying it. If you want to see it rent (iTunes or RedBox).
The action was good and entertaining but their was no good story. The ending sucked
Loved it ... even a part two
