Movie Info & Cast
Director Peter Berg (Lone Survivor and Friday Night Lights, the film) creates an edge-of-your-seat thriller about a secret organization that provides a third option when military tactics and diplomacy have failed. In Mile 22, James Silva (Mark Wahlberg), an operative of this “overwatch” or “ghost” agency, as he describes it, works with a top-secret, tactical command team to retrieve and transport an asset with life-threatening information to Mile 22 for extraction before the enemy closes in. Written by Lea Carpenter and Graham Roland. Also starring Lauren Cohan, John Malkovich and Ronda Rousey.

Did You Know?
- This will be Ronda Rousey's 6th motion picture.
- The movie is set in Asia but was filmed in Bogota, Colombia. A very good job was done hiding the city's true identity yet a Colombian flag could be seen in one scene as were a few store signs in Spanish.
- James Silva: Are you feeling calm, Alice?
- Alice Kerr: No, not even a little bit. Are you?
- James Silva: Me? I'm totally calm.
- Alice Kerr: That's because you're mentally unstable.
- James Silva: Thank you.

Amazing Action Packed Movie From start to end!
unbelievable movie definitely see it again
Like an athlete who leaves it all on the field, the film leaves it all in the moment and on the screen, and there's really nothing to take away afterwards. There is nothing to think about, no nuances to contemplate, no connection with these characters who exist only in moments of hyper-tension and crisis, no greater truths to consider other than to prevail.
The adrenaline never stops pumping in Mile 22, a superficially kinetic thriller that simultaneously attempts to be politically savvy and an ultra-macho shoot-‘em-up. That juggling act proves too sophisticated for director Peter Berg who, in his fourth collaboration with Mark Wahlberg, again demonstrates his sufficient skill at crafting dynamic suspense sequences.
The fights and shootouts are too choppy to be clear and too bloody to be fun. It’s basically an over-caffeinated lecture about geopolitics with frequent cutaways to grisly murders. It didn’t necessarily need a page one rewrite, but a better and less hectic edit could have done wonders.
