Mile 22 – Budget of $35 million – 1 hour and 34 minutes
Sixteen months ago, black operatives stormed a home looking for cesium while being overseen by Overwatch. They killed everyone inside and got away without being seen. Now, Jimmy is furious because his partner Alice got bad intel. There was more cesium than they were told. He knows this because of an officer named Li Noor. Li crashed into someone on purpose in front of the U.S. Embassy. And to make matters worse, Li was Alice’s asset for the first mission. He has a disc containing the location of the last cesium. And this disc is slowly removing its information with every passing second. Li wants safe passage out of the country and he will give Jimmy the code to unlock the disc and save the data. The airstrip is 22 miles away from their current location. With Overwatch monitoring from the sky, this seems like an easy trip. But this trip will leave a scar on Jimmy that can never be healed.
So much action packed into one movie is just not possible. But Mile 22 finds a way to get it done and get it done right. Mile 22 doesn’t waste time with holier than thou good guys or over the top evil bad guys. It makes every person human and with a purpose. You will not only hear but you will feel each death blow and get a strong sense of this teams connection. Even as they leave members behind to fight to the death, it is done with a moment of sadness. But the mission must continue. This movie can only be appreciated on the big screen so you can see each move through smoke and fire. See it today and look forward to a part 2.
