Synopsis:

An elite American intelligence officer, aided by a top-secret tactical command unit, tries to smuggle a mysterious police officer with sensitive information out of the country.

Director Peter Berg and his action hero muse Mark Wahlberg should probably stick to dramatizing true stories exclusively following the embarrassment that is Mile 22. Strangely enough, the opening credits somewhat treat what we are about to watch unfold as a true story; intelligence officer James Silva (Mark Wahlberg) is given a backstory through debriefing files and mission notes attempting to rationalize his violent outbursts, hyperactive speaking, and his general rudeness as a behavior disorder.
