Did You Know?


Part of the film, although the story develops in Asia, was made in Colombia in part because of concerns about security of the crew. Most films that depict Colombia have been shot in Mexico or somewhere else, in part because of concerns about security of the crew, and places like Cartagena are today (by the time of the release of the film) very dangerous because of drug wars.

About 1hr 12 into the movie, Silva asks for the power to be cut to the apartment block. About 2 minutes later some baddies emerge from an operating lift. See more »


James Silva: I think there is no defense against someone willing to die. Someone capable of cultivating our trust by offering us the one thing that we want, and the one thing that we need, that's the real weapon of mass destruction. A killer who looks like a hero.

Good action!!
22 February 2020 | by MR_HeracliusSee all my reviews

Mile 22 has a simple goal in its script, maybe too simple, get this man from point A to point B. The script itself has a great twist at the end, but for the rest of the movie it's lazy. We get to know everything about Mark Wahlberg's characters through 2 minutes of exposition, which is Michael Bay-type lazy. And for the rest of the movie he doesn't really change, nor do any of the other characters. The action is entertaining, but it is shaky and quickly cut together, and not like Paul Greengrass, more like Columbiana. I thought Hollywood was done with this trope of cutting quickly to hide the action, John Wick and Atomic Blonde showed us that. But this movie does it again. Overall, the movie is just meh, not great, not the worst, just meh. And I expected better from Peter Berg.
