Summertime at the movies is all about action-packed blockbuster films. One of those blockbusters is the new Mark Wahlberg film, Mile 22. This film is expected in theaters on August 3rd. This plot focuses on the elite American Intelligence officer and his team known as Overwatch; not the video game series team though. After nine pounds of a radioactive isotope goes missing Wahlberg’s character and his team has to help a local South East Asian police officer, with some information on the isotope, to escape his country to find sanctuary in the U.S.
Together the group has to travel to the extraction point known as Mile 22 in order to get themselves and the officer safely out of the country. This film also stars Walking Dead actress Lauren Cohan, Iko Uwais, MMA star Ronda Rousey, and John Malkovich. The trailer is out now, and I’ll leave a link to it down below. I just hope this film isn’t boring and predictable with its plot and action sequences. The fighting looks good and slightly realistic and my only complaint is the radioactive isotope because it seems radioactive anything is overused these days.
