If you are looking for a good movie to watch, keep looking, this is not it.

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 and 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.

Credible plot and script, excellent editing. Am a big fan of Wahlberg despite Ted. Malkovich once again reliably good. The women were each believably repulsive and brave in equal measure. Who else would be attracted to that kind of dangerous work? Some pretty fancy kung fu moves by the Li Noor character. Some pretty fancy driving by the Wahlberg character. Looks as if we can expect a sequel possibly several. How prudent on the part of Wahlberg, another aging actor facing movie extinction.

Would have been a good movie if they didn't give Wahlberg so many lines. He's a so-so actor, more action hero type, so he's better off sticking to what he does best. In this case, he does what he doesn't do as well. The whole movie was a bit confused mess trying to decide if it wants to be a drama, adventure, action, or what. It's OK a movie on a slow night, but don't make it your top priority if you have other options. Probably good for a long plane ride.

I usually love Wahlberg, but this movie was such a large departure from his likeable characters that I stopped watching it after 30 minutes.

Worst movie wahlberg has made. He got on my nerves with his incessant babbling. Hollywood better not complain about guns when movies like this are being made.

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.
