The reactions are in from this week's Unlimited screening of Mark Wahlberg thriller Mile 22. This all-action popcorn fest casts Wahlberg as a secretive government agent tasked with transporting a political prisoner (The Raid's Iko Uwais) to a designated point amid a hail of gunfire.
We'll start with this from Chris, who praises the level of insane action.
Fantastic, it's been a long time since I've seen a more visceral, exciting, bloodthirsty action film such as this. Moments of humour, explosive action & an unexpected twist too boot. 5/5 #Mile22— Chris (@Grumpyduck) September 11, 2018
Mark says the movie lives up to its 18-rated billing and then some.
Really enjoyed it!— Mark Billing (@silentbling) September 11, 2018
So nice having an action movie be an 18 and not cut to ribbons for a 15 or a 12A to get more people in!
The day they made the last Die Hard a 12A was a sad day in movie history! @markwahlberg & @LaurenCohan on top form!
AJW compliments Wahlberg's performance.
Excellent Film made for Wahlberg, good performances and plenty of non stop action. Script was a little OTT but the direction and camera work was good. Definately recommended— AJW (@maisonblanc19) September 11, 2018
And Victoria is another audience member who enjoyed the movie's intensity.
On the other hand, Anita says she found the story to be a muddled disappointment.
And Philip Fort says martial arts master Uwais isn't utilised effectively enough.
It was a disappointment. Poor dialogue, poorly shot action sequences. Didn't take advantage of Iko Uwais expertise in fight scenes. Missed opportunity.— Phillip Fort (@phil4t1886) September 12, 2018
And your run of Unlimited screenings doesn't end there. We are, of course, talking about suspenseful thriller A Simple Favour, starring Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively and directed, intriguingly, by Bridesmaids filmmaker Paul Feig. The movie stars Kendrick as a mummy blogger investigating the mysterious disappearance of her socialite friend (Lively), blending Feig's characteristic dark humour with all manner of twists and turns.
The film screens in advance on Tuesday 18th September – check out the trailer below.
Co-starring Crazy Rich Asians breakout Henry Golding, critics have agreed this is a stylish, compelling and unpredictable movie that sees its director and stars branch off in unexpected directions.
