Editorial Reviews

Bruce Campbell stars in this explosive, feature-length adventure from the secret files of Burn Notice! On his final mission as a Navy Seal, Commander Sam Axe (Campbell) is sent deep into the jungles of South America, where a deadly terrorist organization threatens innocent lives. But, when Sam discovers that he is merely a pawn in a far-reaching and diabolical plot, he must fight to stay alive long enough to stop the real terrorists - at any cost. Packed with gritty thrills and wry humor, this never-before-seen extended cut of The Fall of Sam Axe is action on the cutting edge!

5.0 out of 5 stars GUNS DON'T HELP PEOPLE, PEOPLE HELP PEOPLE July 30, 2011
What we learned from this movie is that Bruce Campbell can only play one type of character. Fortunately he does it well. You know this is going to be a comedy from the beginning when Campbell as Sam Axe is escorted by two SPs, with serious swagger music, through mis-operating gates and doors. Sam is a Navy Seal. He is not the "kill Bin Laden" type SEAL but the have sex with the admiral's wife (Chandra West) type of SEAL. This lands him on a job in Columbia dressed in camouflage garb designed to hide someone in the middle of the Atlantic.

In Columbia, while looking for terrorists, things take a twist and then another, and another. Kiele Sanchez plays a clinic doctor and was marvelous in her role. And of course what would a Bruce Campbell movie be without a chainsaw? 4 1/2 stars. Acting is not something Bruce Campbell does well, but we love to watch it anyway. The twists is what made the movie humorous.

No F-bombs, no sex, no nudity.

I watched "Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe" with a fair amount of expectation and anticipation. I have watched the "Burn Notice" series from its inception with my spouse and I think that it's fair to say that it is one of our favorite weekly programs. Add to that, I have been a tireless devotee to the brilliant Bruce Campbell for more years than I care to recognize in print (decades!). So, this made-for TV movie seemed like a can't miss proposition. And, indeed, it begins on a decidedly whimsical note as Campbell faces a military tribunal for an escapade gone wrong. With his trademark bluster, Campbell challenges authority like no one else! His character has become a fan favorite over the years due to his verbal interplay with his series's co-stars Gabrielle Anwar and, most notably, Jeffrey Donovan. Donovan directs this tepid prequel and puts in a cameo, but its just long enough to highlight what's missing from this incarnation of the Burn Notice saga.

As much as I liked the comedic stylings of the present day military sequences, one would expect a terrific, funny and larger than life episode to showcase Sam's outrageousness. In fact, the jungle exploits between a corrupt military junta and a ragtag band of rebel fighters just seems far too easy and conventional. In a set-up used in countless other films, Sam is sent as an observer to a third world nationality and discovers that all is not as it seems in their plight with rebel forces. Soon Sam is in the thick of things protecting an altruistic hospital (sweet) and its strong and dedicated American/Canadian doctors (no language barriers here!). But it is a sassy rebel orphan who really seals the deal in this film.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing October 21, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
My wife & I have liked Burn Notice since it's inception 7 years ago and were sorry to see it end. The Sam Axe character in the series was one we always enjoyed. We had mean't to view this 2 hour TV movie when it came out on USA Network, but missed it and finally got around to seeing it recently after the series ended. While it did give some insight as to how Sam "left" the service...the storyline was somewhat weak and the show was quite "campy". Not up to the usual suspense of the series. Sam's character, while portraying some of the characteristics Burn Notice viewers are familiar with, seemed to be too comical and not serious enough given the prediciment he was in. Definitely not up to par with the series. You can easily skip this, even if a fan of ther show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Insight to Sam's Past March 27, 2014
By Care
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you're only looking for another episode of Burn Notice, just buy a season. This is Sam's story, tho Michael makes a brief cameo. We were not disappointed, and thoroughly enjoyed going thru Sam's last mission as a Navy Seal. But, I admit all of the negative reviews had me worried. The bonus features alone are worth the purchase, but we loved the movie, too.

1.0 out of 5 stars sadly disappointing September 16, 2013
I, like many of you, had high hopes for a solo Sam episode. But this.. It was a bad retread of some 70's/80's network television drama. Though Matt Nix was listed as co-writer ( and Jeffery Donovon as director !) it felt nothing like a Burn Notice episode. They did not even let Bruce Campbell free reign or improvise much. The story was cliched, stereotypical, and hackneyed. The evil military vs the plucky ewoks, er farmers, the cute orphan, and the doctors who "CARE". And not nearly enough good Sam/Bruce to make up for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you're a fan, it's worth the trip... August 5, 2012
I like the "Burn Notice" series and many of Bruce Campbell's other efforts. If you're a fan, this is an enjoyable romp. A good choice if you can find it on your streaming service of choice. Not sure I'd buy the DVD/Blu-ray, though it's not bad. Just not sure how many times you'd want to view this. It's basically just a fun action bit that gives BC and friends another chance to play and make a little dough. Nothing wrong with that.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK October 5, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This prequel is OK for a slow evening. Looks like a long made-for-TV movie that wasn't quite good enough to get picked up. Fills in some blanks in Sam's and Michael's back stories.

3.0 out of 5 stars Burn Notice Pre-sequel April 20, 2011
I love the show Burn Notice. It is a show I have watched religiously from the begining.

Bruce Campbell takes his sidekick job on Burn Notice to front and center in this TV movie. His Sam Axe Character back story is a cute idea to explore his TV mythos, which has never been covered fully in the four seasons of the show. If you want to view this film, he is the only reason to watch this film.

After playing the character for four years, Campbell is comfortable in Axe's skin. The film is fairly done for a TV film, but the script by Notice scribe Matt Nix seems a jumbled mess with too many laconic ideals.

Jeffrey (Micheal Weston) Donovan directs this film without many of the Notice trademarks and style shots, which makes you watch this show more and more. It almost seem like this film was rushed in its scope to wet your whisle for season five of Notice. Again the direction of this film is due to the disorganized script whixh plots in directions that peter out

Campbell is likeable as Axe, but he has been likeable in all of Burn Notice episodes. He can hold your interest, but this film is the wrong vehicle for him. He as I said before is the only reason to watch this tripe.
