I’ll freely admit that I wasn’t expecting the greatest of movies when entering the cinema to watch Mile 22, but I was hoping to experience something mildly entertaining. And given my low expectations, anything better than a dud would have left me leaving with a smile on my face. Unfortunately, this was not to be the case. My eyes got tired before my rear end did in those uncomfortable cinema seats, and the musings of friends on Facebook and their delightful photos of dinner dishes was more entertaining than this movie was.
So what can I say about it? It was a true snore fest. Far from entertaining and enjoyable, I truly left the cinema feeling ripped off and needing my 95 minutes back. I really do want the production companies to refund me my money. With the exception of a handful of hand to hand combat scenes that featured remarkable acrobatic and martial arts skills, the most enjoyable moment of the film was the caramel flavoured popcorn.
If you want something that lasts about 95 minutes and is more entertaining than Mile 22 and won’t leave you feeling ripped off, browse Facebook comments for a Facebook fight. There’s guaranteed to be more action and entertainment there than in this dreadful movie.
