The heart of “Joe Bell” is in the right place, but that’s not enough to make it a good movie.
There’s a positive message and admirable ambition at the heart of the film, and it’s hard to criticize that.
Ever wondered what it would look like if you strapped a camera on the back of a wild hyena and set him loose? Look no further than “Mile 22.”
The film is devoid of all merriment and holiday fun, and the cast (and audience) deserves far better than this overstuffed turkey of a movie.
I’ll leave you with some words of cinematic wisdom: see “Transformers: The Last Knight” if you must, but remember that your ticket purchase will encourage Hollywood to churn out more rubbish exactly like it.
I would’ve preferred to see a documentary movie, period, instead of this dramatic recreation.
