In a visceral modern thriller from the director of Lone Survivor, Mark Wahlberg stars as James Silva, an operative of the CIA's most highly-prized and least-understood unit. Aided by a top-secret tactical command team, Silva must retrieve and transport an asset who holds life-threatening information to Mile 22 for extraction before the enemy closes in.Written by
Part of the film, although the story develops in Asia, was made in Colombia in part because of concerns about security of the crew. Ironically, most films that depict Colombia have been shot in Mexico or somewhere else, in part because of concerns about security of the crew; and ironically, places like Guadalajara are today (by the time of the release of the film) very dangerous because of drug wars.

About 00:50:40 runtime into the movie, something written in Korean on one of the skyscrapers. But the story takes place in Indonesia. See more »
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. If you don't find the caesium before it's too late, you will be held responsible for the single largest intelligence fumble since a flight instruction school in Florida failed to grasp the significance of a 19-year-old Al-Qaeda terrorist saying he didn't need to learn how to land.

Trailer looked great, but the actual movie is just an awkward disappointment. This was weird, coming from director Peter Berg but I don't completely blame him. The writing is just awkward. Mark Wahlberg plays a super dedicated, grossly over-the-top special ops type guy who is just constantly going on rants to give intensity to the movie but it just comes off as weird, unnecessary, and confusing. Lauren Cohan is the most frustrated divorced mother ever. Finally, they cast Ronda Roussey only to give her ZERO fight scenes and barely any lines....great.
The star of the movie is the Iko Uwais character, with amazing fight scenes with perhaps too many fast changing angles so you cannot exactly follow what's happening. Action scenes were almost decent but the overall plot was so foolish it turned me off.
