Mile 22 (2018)

[IMDB; en.wikipedia]


Awesome.
Entertaining.

Coherent & Consistent storyline.
Smart.
Many twists and turns - more than enough to please me :)

Lots of action. Lots.

Indeed, average special effects... However, I do understand all they do is shoot weapons (and these special effects are cheap and have become boring by now :D), but they do get it right, i.e. it all does feel real, so I'm pleased about it.

Fast paced. Really fast paced.
That's how you do an action movie! Congratulations!

Great acting. All actors work really well together, there's like this lucky chemistry between them.

This whole great combination (story, action, acting, cinematography, post processing etc.) keeps the viewer focused at all times.

Why do critics rate it so poorly? Dunno. Don't care. I guess we have to agree to disagree just like regarding the overhyped La La Land (2016) :)


As a side note, it reminds me of 16 Blocks (2006) [IMDB].


Conclusions


Awesome movie with respect to story, action, acting etc. Definitely worth watching. I totally recommend it.
