In "Mile 22," a CIA unit embarks on a 22-mile gauntlet under deadly circumstances. James Silva (Wahlberg) is an operative of the CIA's most highly prized and little known unit. Aided by a top-secret tactical command team, Silva must transport an asset (Uwais), who has vital information, to an airfield for extraction before the enemy closes in. (Gary Reber)

The 2.40:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed digitally using the Panavision Millennium DXL camera system and sourced from a 4K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture exhibits a cinematic quality with a natural color palette that delivers an edgy visual. Hues are naturally saturated with degrees of warmth. Fleshtones are natural throughout. Display monitors within the CIA facility are realistic, whether looking head on at the monitors or the imagery from the monitors is shown full screen. Contrast is excellent with natural black levels and revealing shadow delineation, as well as natural highlights, all of which convey realism. Resolution is excellent, especially during close-ups. Facial features, hair, beards, clothing and objects and textures are nicely defined. This is a very realistic visual experience with realism throughout. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 7.1-channel soundtrack delivers an active four-channel surround presence with all surround channels energized through most of the movie. The surrounds are comprised of urban street atmospherics in Bogata and intense sound effects, such as automatic gunfire and hand grenade explosions, as well as vehicles screeching through the streets. Throughout there is a powerful and dynamic orchestral score that spans the soundstage wide and deep, extending to the surrounds aggressively. Dialogue sounds generally well integrated spatially. This is a dynamic holosonic® experience that really delivers suspense and action to the conclusion. (Gary Reber)
