i think August is a dumping ground for bad movies.("The Happytime Murders" is one example) "Mile 22" is one movie that is confusing and violent. And even a leading role like Mark Wahlberg couldn't save the movie. He plays James Silva who leads a small group on a dangerous mission. He has a problem with both anger issues and dealing with authority. In order to control his anger, he has a wrist band that even time he's in a bad mood, he snaps his band to calm him down. But even that bad won't do the trick. In one scene, I crew out a fellow crew member about what a nuclear bomb does to a human being. Director Peter Berg could have take avenge of his behavior, but his character is largely ignored in favorite of the gruesome violence that associate with the such a movie like "Mile 22." Lauren cohan is no help. she too has anger issues. when she is isn't on the field of batter, she is on the phone arguing with her husband over the kids. I don't buy Wahlberg character because of his anger issues. Maybe tomorrow he'll flip out and end up in military prison. Wahlberg is too likable to play a loose cannon. his character reminds me of the 1998 movie "Solider." Kurt Russell plays a solider who been training since birth and his only function is to kill and take orders. he too has anger issues. The only difference between the two is that Russell can control his anger without the use of the rubber band.

The Featured Critic liked this movie way more than I did. I can see the parallels to the recent Mission: Impossible movies, but I definitely enjoyed those more than I did this movie.

I rented it from Netflix after seeing a clip of the first scene, thinking that it might be a tight thriller that would be enjoyable, even if I would need to turn off my brain to enjoy it.

Rather than have this be Mark Wahlberg acting like a superhero going up against a villain with equally impressive super-villain skills, this is an ensemble effort, and that definitely makes it better.

However, while the ending has a decent twist, it ultimately seemed like a setup for a sequel rather than a satisfying conclusion to the story at hand. That wouldn't be a sequel I'd be interested in watching.
