Let's discuss one of the worst movies ever made:

Issue #1: The Director/Writers choose to display the head of an "elite secretive military organization" as a lunatic who has to annoyanly flick his wrists with a rubber band as to not go off the rails. Wahlberg, in all his talents, does his best to portray this but comes across like Christian Bale's character in the a movie actually worth your while called The Fighter.

Issue #2: The Director/Writers choose to portray the United States Government as ones who portrays their men and women in arms as willingly leaving their comrades bodies, even wounded to die. Here we go... Why am I continuing to watch this?

Issue #3: We leave the film without any sense of fulfillment, satisfaction, or even a win.

Issue #4: The movie wasn't awarded a Raspberry for Worst Motion Picture. This is a travesty.

I only watched this film for the sake of seeing Iko Uwais (Merantau: 2009; The Raid: Redemption: 2011; Raid 2: 2014; The Night Comes for Us: 2018; Stuber: 2019) screen time. This Indonesian silat trained martial artist has screen presence, but see rather little of him in this one, leaving most of the screen time to the annoying and unlikeable special ops character played by Mark Wahlberg (Boogie Nights: 1997; Ted: 2012; Transformers: 2014 & 2017; All the Money in the World: 2017).
Also found it annoying with the editing and took awhile to somewhat understand what was happening and was left asking, for what purpose?
This is a disjointed film with an ambitious attempt but with little depth and no heart.
There is no bonus or special features on this DVD.

Terrrrrrible movie.
If all you are into is fast-paced action, there is a lot of it. However, the downfall is the equally fast-paced and disjointed scenes that are constantly jumping back & forth. For instance, if they showed a scene where you were supposed to read something in the scene, there was not enough time to read it before it was off to another scene.
Has a lot of unfinished business & innuendos--most likely to set up for a sequel. This story line had the potential to be really good but it left me feeling they tried to put too much content, and then just ran out of time. If there is a sequel, you can count me out. Lost interest for fear the sequel would leave me just as empty and irritated.
If you decide to watch it anyway you will understand what I am talking about. I warn you, however, don't be surprised when you get to the end and wish you hadn't.

This is one terrrrrible movie. How is it that Marky Mark makes soooo many bad movies. He is so unbelievable in this movie as a unhinged tough guy. I just started to feel sick while typing this having to remember the movie. Horrible. "Mother, I need a car" "Ok, down the street, hahaha. Schlotz. Ug. Were done here.

Mile 22 is, easily, the worst covert ops action movie I have ever had the misfortune of watching. Bad writing, bad directing, bad casting, bad acting, bad action... you get the drift. Do yourself a favour, watch Jack Reacher or Sicario or any of the Mission: Impossible movies or something else instead. Anything else.

Maybe they should have stopped at Mile 10 ?
I made it through about half of this movie.....then turned it off.
Horrible flick. Just the same lame thing over and over an over and over.
Dumb, plain dumb.

Mark Wahlberg is not one of my favorite actors as I feel he has a winy voice. Now some of his movies are decent and funny but when I hear his voice it makes me want to cringe. Now this movie was a fast pace action movie where all kinds of things was happening all the time. The ending did have a twist to it. However, I did not find the movie to be great. It was just ok.

Whew! A wild, vicious ride which hints at a sequel. I, for one, can't wait.

We live in a new world. These are bloody times. Evil exists. Horror exists. The great game continues. If you have patience, you wouldn't have expected it to end, so... Most governments have very little patience. What is a government anyway? Does a government have a heartbeat? Does a government have ten fingers and ten toes? A government is capable of vengeance. Is a government capable of slaughter?

The definition of a war zone is an interesting thing. Being a cop in Baltimore might be every bit as dangerous as being a cop in Baghdad. The cops played the politicians and the politicians played the cops and I don't think anyone ever knew who is on whose side.

You ever read Hiroshima, by John Hersey? Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, essay on the atom bomb. 'Cause John Hersey wrote about the survivors, all right? He wrote about how he reached out to take the hands of women in the wake of the bombing in Japan and their skin slipped off like gloves. And then you know what happens next? Your kidneys fail. Your lungs collapse. You cannot breathe, you cannot think. Your thyroid just evaporates, all right? Then your lymphocyte cell count takes a nose dive.
===
Caesium-139 is Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined. Only you don't need sophisticated planes to place it. You only need a kid who can empty an envelope on a sidewalk.

The end of an operation is euphoric. It's placing that last piece in the puzzle.
===
Your job is not to predict tomorrow based on yesterday. That's what academics do. Your job is to prevent the end of tomorrow by using your brains and your imagination.
===
And let's not forget about your absolutely medieval moral compass and nasty thirst for bloodshed for which there has been no legal repercussion because you do not operate under any rule of law.
===
Do I believe in Santa Claus? No. Tooth fairy? Uh-uh. Did I believe that my three ex-wives meant it when they said that they'd love me forever?

Warriors don't wear uniforms anymore. There are no uniforms in war now. The little girl that looks like your little sister's hippie friend on holiday might be a weapon of mass destruction. The start of an operation is just like the start of anything else. Everything could go right. Everything could go wrong. Diplomacy is option one. Military's option two. When option one and option two are abandoned, there is only one thing left. Which is us.
===
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. The great game continues. Today was yours. I'll see you tomorrow.
