Official Trailer for Gritty Action Movie 'Mile 22' with Mark Wahlberg
"We fight new wars. The old options… They don't always succeed." STX Entertainment has debuted the first official trailer for Mile 22, the latest action movie collaboration between director Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg (who have made Lone Survivor, Deepwater Horizon, Patriots Day together). Wahlberg plays a top secret, high level CIA agent in their "least understood unit", tasked with finding and transporting an asset to Mile 22 for extraction. The title Mile 22 refers to a particular place where the person can be safely rescued, and Wahlberg's characters encounters "some very evil people" along the way who want him and everyone in his unit dead. The cast includes John Malkovich, Ronda Rousey, Iko Uwais, Terry Kinney, Sala Baker, Alexandra Vino, Poorna Jagannathan, and Lauren Cohan. Yeah, so this looks like another slick covert ops action movie from Berg, honestly nothing particular new or unique. Have fun.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Peter Berg's Mile 22, direct from STX's YouTube:
In a visceral modern thriller from Peter Berg, Mark Wahlberg stars as James Silva, an operative of the CIA's most highly-prized and least understood unit. Aided by a top-secret tactical command team, Silva must retrieve and transport an asset who holds life-threatening information to Mile 22 for extraction before the enemy closes in. Mile 22 is directed by American filmmaker Peter Berg, of the movies The Rundown, Friday Night Lights, The Kingdom, Hancock, Battleship, Lone Survivor, Deepwater Horizon, and Patriots Day previously. The screenplay is written by Lea Carpenter and Graham Roland. STX Ent. will release Berg's Mile 22 in theaters everywhere starting on August 17th late this summer. First impression?
Peter Berg hasn't ever really done anything unique. But he typically makes solid movies. I'll watch it just for Iko anyway.

"Endorsed by the NRA." Seriously though, this is uninspired and groan worthy dialogue. Hopefully the action makes up for the abysmal script. Predicting the plot twist that Malkovich is the true "bad guy" pulling the strings. The only thing I enjoyed of Peter Berg's is Hancock and The Rundown. It's been awhile since I've seen anything else of his. This is kind of the reason why....

He is a solid filmmaker but certainly panders to the patriotism(propaganda) loving crowd

That's definitely true.

You liked Hancock? I found it irritating and gross. ;D

At the time I watched it, I found it entertaining. The ending was a bit underwhelming and stupid if I remember correctly.

Well, everybody knows what is there to get from this ...
