James Silva, Mark Wahlberg's protagonist in "Mile 22," has a tick where he snaps a yellow rubber bracelet against his wrist. He does this many, many times throughout this all-out assault of a movie, which seems to have been shot and edited with the singular purpose of leaving the audience confused and disoriented at every turn. This restless camera can't even hold still during a simple scene of dialogue, changing focus every two seconds – eyes, off-center face, hands, blood pressure monitor, and on and on.While that's nice for Silva, it's also annoying for the audience."Mile 22" is one of the more disappointing collaborations between Wahlberg and director Peter Berg, who also made the similarly assaulting "Lone Survivor," the self-aggrandizing "Patriots Day," and the quite thrilling and underappreciated "Deepwater Horizon".
