Of course, this cannot be called as good score since it is just few points above the averages, and good movies should be more than, at least, 7.5.

The plot of this movie makes such an adrenaline rush. This is so interesting to see that each part of the movie can boost adrenaline with its action. There is also Iko Uwais that has important roles to build the adrenaline. He is a great actor that has become famous after The Raid movies. In this movie, he plays as Li Noor. He is like the new generation of Jet Li or Jackie Chen, but unluckily his great actions of fighting is not supported by the camera. The camera keeps changing the point of view. This makes people tired in watching. Moreover, the actions of fight is quite excessive, that it makes the plot ruined. The story should be about extraction mission to bring Li Noor as the important informant to the airport. There are 22 miles of dangerous road and this is the source of its title. However, the plot and its story is not well delivered. Even, it can be said that the plot is rushed.
