Mark Wahlberg’s frequent collaboration with director Peter Berg (Patriots Day, Deepwater Horizon, Lone Survivor) continues with Mile 22. This time out the pair decide to leave the fact based storytelling behind and swim in fictional waters as Mark Wahlberg plays a CIA operative is transporting an important asset amidst a ton of danger. Will Wahlberg and his crew successfully protect their asset through the 22nd mile? My guess is “yes,” but that predictable outcome shouldn’t stop us from seeing Wahlberg in another action driven flick.
The picture also boasts an international cast which includes John Malkovich, Ronda Rousey, The Raid: Redemption star Iko Uwais, and Korean pop star Chae-rin Lee (late of 2NE1). Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
Mile 22 opens nationwide August 17.
