In what looks to be the next Mission: Impossible-esque franchise, James (Wahlberg), Alice (Cohan) and Sam (Ronda Rousey) form part of a secretive team of the Overwatch division. They have a mission (should they choose to accept it) to transport an informant wanted for espionage (Uwais), from Southeast Asia to a getaway plane at an airport 22 miles away.
Any movie with Uwais (from The Raid series) is guaranteed to be action-packed with lots of gruesomely awesome fight scenes. He’s like the Indonesian version of Jet Li and Jackie Chan in their prime – hya hya hya!
The combination of a combative Uwais, Wahlberg with guns (both of the ballistic and muscular variety), and a UFC fighter (also with guns) makes for a loud, sure-to-keep-even-me-awake, movie that will keep you on the edge of your seats. Will they make it to Mile 22? Or will they make it there in the follow-up movies already planned? Come along and find out!
