The Boy (2016, dir. William Brent Bell)

An American is hired to nanny the doll replacement of a dead child. Okay spooky house jumpscare horror with a couple of interesting ideas, and some well-worn borrowings, held together by a decent central performance. By no means essential, though, despite all-round proficiency. A sequel followed in 2020.

Mile 22 (2018, dir. Peter Berg)

An elite anti-terrorist squad battles to get an asset across a hostile city. Clunky actioner mistaking thuggishness for badassdom; unlikeable characters don’t help, and the wasting of Uko Iwais is nigh unforgivable. Fourth and least of the Berg/Wahlberg flicks to date.
