The new trailer is here and it’s all kinds of badass. Check it out below:
Here’s the synopsis:
Elite American intelligence officer James Silva (Wahlberg) tries to secretly move a corrupt police officer (Iko Uwais) with sensitive information out of a foreign country. But it soon turns out that the alleged officer is not who first appeared to be and that he know’s far more than he is letting on about.
Action is the name of the game in Mile 22 and the new trailer is packed out with it. Wahlberg again looks in good form as CIA operative James Silva. He’s got some serious ‘bad attitude’ with him and ain’t afraid to be pick a fight. As Wahlberg’s Silva states in the trailer he’s part of a unit ‘that gets shit done’ and he has no illusion’s that he’s a bad guy who just happens to be fighting on the good side.
I can really see Wahlberg’s Marky Mark side shine through in this as he does everything he has to in order to get the job done and he’s got no qualms about getting into it with his adversaries.
Paired with Wahlberg are martial arts sensations Iko Uwais and Ronda Rousey who are bringing their considerable skills to the big screen and as soon as a I saw Wahlberg and Uwais would be mixing up together with this film I was sold. Uwais is the most exciting thing to happen to the action genre in the last decade and in Mile 22 he is again set to prove why he’s such a sensation.
Pete Berg has also done a fantastic job of setting this film within the conventional real world of special operations and he’s again focusing on realism just like he did in Lone Survivor. The action is particularly hard-hitting and if you’re looking to get your adrenaline up, well, you’ve come to the right place.
My adrenaline was certainly raised when I was watching this new trailer. Check out my full reaction below:
Mile 22 is shaping up to be an intense ride for action junkies when it is released in cinemas on August 23.
