In this new featurette released by STX Entertainment ahead of the film’s 17th August release in the UK. We get a proper sense of his all-action artistry as we’re led through some blistering fight choreography, with Berg ‘mesmerised’ by the soul and texture Uwais brings to such hard-hitting sequences, whilst actress Lauren Cohen declares him ‘the next generation of Jackie Chan’.
You’ll get no arguments from us…
‘In a visceral modern thriller from the director of Lone Survivor, Mark Wahlberg stars as James Silva, an operative of the CIA’s most highly-prized and least understood unit. Aided by a top-secret tactical command team, Silva must retrieve and transport an asset who holds life-threatening information to Mile 22 for extraction before the enemy closes in.’
