Mile 22 appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 2.40:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. This became a well-rendered image.
As expected, sharpness worked well, with only minor softness in some wider shots. The majority of the flick boasted accurate delineation.
The movie lacked jagged edges or moiré effects, and edge haloes remained absent. Print flaws also never materialized.
To the surprise of no one, Mile 22 opted for a teal-heavy palette that also threw out splashes of orange. Given the production decisions, the hues looked appropriate and full.
Blacks seemed deep and dense, while low-light shots appeared smooth and concise. Though not dazzling, the Blu-ray replicated the source in a positive manner.
Even better, the movie’s DTS-HD MA 7.1 soundtrack boasted an immersive affair. With a slew of action scenes, the soundscape blasted to life on many occasions.
This meant a lot of room for mayhem, with vehicles, guns and explosions that engulfed the viewer. The soundfield added impact to the proceedings and used the various channels to strong advantage.
Audio quality also satisfied, with speech that came across as natural and distinctive. Music appeared bright and bold as well.
Like one would expect, effects dominated the proceedings, and they fared nicely, with accurate, tight material that showed deep bass as appropriate. The soundtrack brought out the anticipated powerful sonic experience.
In terms of extras, Mile 22 comes with seven short featurettes. We get Overwatch (1:36), Introducing Iko Uwais (1:48), Iko Fight (1:47), Bad Ass Women (1:44), Behind the Scenes Stunts (1:56), Modern Combat (1:56) and Colombia (3:45).
Across these, we get notes from screenwriter Lea Carpenter, director Peter Berg, fight coordinator Ryan Watson, assistant fight coordinators Lateef Crowder and Sam Looc, special effects supervisor Matt Kutcher, stunt coordinator Clay Cullen, Bogota Mayor Enrique Penalosa Londono, location manager Miguel Tapia, and actors Mark Wahlberg, Ronda Rousey, Lauren Cohan, Carlo Alban, Iko Uwais, and John Malkovich.
The featurettes look at the depiction of CIA operatives, stunts and action, cast and performances, effects, sets and locations. A few useful notes emerge, and we see decent footage from the production, but these clips tend to be promotional in nature and lack depth.
The disc opens with ads for The Happytime Murders, Peppermint, Papillon, Operation Finale and BlacKkKlansman. We also find five trailers for Mile 22.
A second disc provides a DVD copy of Mile 22. It includes the same extras as the Blu-ray.
After three very good films together, the Peter Berg/Mark Wahlberg duo finally falters with the lousy Mile 22. Frantic, incoherent and just plain bad, the movie seriously disappoints. The Blu-ray brings solid picture and audio along with minor supplements. Avoid this poor film.
