The film looks to be a real victor, and the dream team of Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg hasn't delivered a dud movie yet. Mark Wahlberg, of course! "Mile 22" follows James Silva (Wahlberg), an intelligence officer in the CIA's secretive Overwatch division (based on the real-life paramilitary squad Ground Branch); at last month's STXfilms CinemaCon presentation, it was revealed that Berg nicknamed the character "the lighthouse", as he "roots out evil". "Or do you want to live in a world that works?"

Reuniting with director Peter Berg ("Patriots Day", "Lone Survivor"), Wahlberg stars as James Silva, leader of an elite tactical unit of CIA intelligence operatives dubbed Overwatch, called into action to tackle problems that global diplomacy and military intervention have been unable to solve.

If The Raid and The Raid 2 hadn't already tipped you off, you don't want to get into a fight with Iko Uwais.
