A little mid-August action for your cinema going pleasure.
Alas, STX chose not to screen “Mile 22,” a Mark Wahlberg/Peter Berg picture, for critics. Reviews are popping up today, and I’m catching it the first showing in the small town I am visiting.
August has produced some passable films with audience appeal — “Crazy Rich Asians” and “Alpha” dress up the major studio release slate for this, a dumping ground month for movies which could not compete in summer and might get lost among the films of fall.
But one certainly feels that when STX has this star and his go-to director for an action pic, they’d be showing it in advance if they thought it was any good. Review to come shortly.
