Mile 22 Is Directed By Peter Berg
and stars Mark Wahlberg in their fourth collaboration together after a lone survivor, Patriots Day and Deepwater Horizon and this film tells the tale of an elite top secret tactical command unit that’s trying to get a police officer out of the country because he has very specific information and he’s keeping this information at bay until they get him out of the country and he’s sort of using it as a way to make sure he can get safely transported to the United States of America and in so doing they have to go 22 miles through some very dangerous territory. I’ve liked pretty much all of the collaborations that Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg have done so far, especially Lone survivor, which I think is really good, but something about the way this film was marketed made it seem like they. were trying to keep a lot from us and that’s usually a good thing, but it felt sort of like a defense, and there’s definitely a lot about this film that’s not in any of the trailers for one Mark Wahlberg’s character is very obsessive. He has a rubber band that he keeps her around his wrist that he pulls and he hurts himself with it to kind of keep himself in focus because pain keeps him focused. His character seems to have a heightened sense of awareness and thinking he’s very clever.
He Kind Of Reminded Me Of
a more intense and loud version of Ben Affleck’s character in the accountant Mile 22 struggles from trying to be a lot of different things. In one movie. It’s a conventional action film where a team is trying to get somebody to safety through a bunch of gunfire and fight scenes. But at the same time it’s really trying to have an impactful political message that means something and these two movies don’t really mesh at the end of the film. After like a two-minute scene where a bunch of information is thrown at us, it’s kind of difficult to really understand what the message behind Peter Burke’s film is is it just an action movie with some fight scenes and explosions or is this trying to be something more if it’s trying to be something more which I really do think it is it’s very unclear as to what they’re going for the only thing.
We Learn About Mark Wahlbergs Character Is
through narration and files that are thrown our way during the opening credits sequence. If it wasn’t for that opening credits sequence, we wouldn’t know in thing about his character. We learn everything in those two minutes and after that we barely figure out anything else. Also troubling is that the film doesn’t seem to have a middle. It definitely has a beginning and it definitely has an end, but somewhere partway through the movie.
It Feels Like The First Act
and the third act just collided because there’s a setup. There’s an opening scene and then we learn a little bit about what’s happening and then all of a sudden they’ve got this guy and they’re transporting him and then the movie is just a big long action scene and nothing really feels like it happens in the middle. It doesn’t really feel like there’s time to breathe, and while I usually actually really like that in a film here I was hoping for more I was like what’s going on in their heads were thrown into these action sequences. So quickly with very little build-up and so it’s difficult to care about what’s going on and sometimes we are asked to give a blumin and I just didn’t but by far and I’ve been saving this by far the thing about this film that bugged me the most is. Peter Berg’s direction of the action scenes.
Im A Fan Of Peter Berg
I liked his films quite a bit of them actually here. He seems to have gone back to the mid-to late 2000s and has embraced the shaky hyper actively edited films of that time period once again with action scenes that would be beautiful if he just put them in a wide or or allowed us to soak in some moments. We have someone as talented as I Kow, who ice I believe that’s how you pronounce his name, but he was the lead. from the Raid films and here he is and He’s also listed as a fight choreographer in the credits and I can tell that he’s doing amazing things there’s no need for Shaky Cam and quick cut editing to mask poor stunt work. They don’t show you anything he’s doing because everything is so in-your-face and and I thought we were past this to be honest.

I Thought That The People Had
made a stand and Hollywood had listened and then we got films like John Wick. You know that understood this or even despite its faults Atomic blonde had amazing action sequences. I thought we had progressed past this. But this film once again reaches back into the mid–2000s and says hey remember when you couldn’t tell what the blumin was going on Yeah we like that right, oh you don’t well it doesn’t matter we’re gonna. This movie I’m a fan of Paul Greengrass and the way he cuts together quick cut editing and shaky cam.
I Think He Does It With Considerable Style
and he doesn’t use it in a way to to to like shadow poor stunt work. The action sequences in this film took all the wrong lessons from Paul Greengrass. His films like the Bourne films and uses them and in the way that say like the the last few taken movies did Olivia or Megatons films Columbiana and that type of action the way it was cut together and I was sitting the theater blown away that we got another big-budget film like this with the considerable talent on the screen doing the fight scenes and it’s helmed that way. Strangely. The film also seems rather oblivious to Mark.
Wahlbergs Celebrity Status Because A Character In The
film at a very. moment actually looks at him and says say hi to your mother for me and he’s like what did you just say what did you say to me? I was sitting in the theater thinking are they even aware of the famous Andy Sandberg Saturday Night Live Skit Hey Dawg how’s it going unlike you’ve heard that looks really great so your dog right what’s that all about okay who’s great to meet you say hi to your mother for me okay did you see the smle I was just gonna say I am Max Payne steady and mother for me. It completely took me out of the movie and there’s so many moments like that where Wahlberg is given. These monologues or our characters say things that are supposed to be really important and it just comes off kind of cheesy. John Malkovich is in the film wearing a very obvious toupee, and he’s basically like the guy behind the computer screens who barks orders at them, causing the Edit to constantly cut to drone shots or or cameras that are on top of cars.
Its So Hyperactive That It Feels Like
they thought everything would be a lot smarter and sound considerably more highbrow. If it’s just cut together really fast, but it doesn’t it’s just a barrage of nonsense. Mile 22 could have been a really fun action film, but it tries to be so much more it’s message is unclear. The action scenes are directed very poorly and again. I must say I am a fan of Peter Berg and I’m saying this out of love for his other films.
This Could Have Been So Much
better and it was very disappointing. I’m gonna give mile 22 a. D-plus guys thank you so much as always for watching look forward to more reviews very soon coming to you this weekend as always if you like this, you can click right here and get stuck mine eyes you.
