Peter Berg United States, 2018

saitosouta's rating of the film Mile 22

Intense jingoism overstuffed with blood and bullets, panopticon-like utilization of surveillance camera, disarming justification of heroic sacrifice for America. Such nauseatingly conservative elements are overwhelmed by pure cinematic pleasure like exquisite action sequences and Iko Uwais' extreme physicality in highly problematic yet thrillingly heart-pounding “Mile 22”. Peter Berg, my sweetest gilty pleasure.
