Editorial Reviews

A high-octane, globe-spanning thriller with storylines ripped from today’s headlines, Strike Back is a one-hour drama focusing on two members of a top-secret British anti-terrorist organization known as Section 20: Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester), a married Brit who has moved from field work to training recruits as Season 2 opens, and Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton), a U.S. Delta Force operative, discharged on the eve of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, who made the most of his second chance to help Section 20 bring down an international terrorist last season. Again co-produced by Cinemax and the U.K.’s Sky TV, the ten Season 2 episodes (47 min. each) follow Stonebridge, Scott and new boss Rachel Dalton (Rhona Mitra) as they scour Africa in pursuit of a fresh covey of criminals, each vying for possession of a box of valuable nuclear triggers that could launch Armageddon if they fall in the wrong hands.

Format: DVD
STRIKE BACK is so prolific with its nude scenes, even the showmakers of GAME OF THRONES are awestruck. Just goes to show that, 'neath all that placid tea-drinking and scone-munching, the Brits flaunt quite the salacious streak. But gratuitous nekkidness aside, STRIKE BACK also rewards the viewer with gritty character development, a runaway train of a narrative, and, of course, the explosive, explosive gunplay. And with its secretive counter-terrorist task force deployed on a globetrotting pace, you may even soak up culture and end up a worldlier person.

STRIKE BACK is the only reason I keep Cinemax. Season 2 (or Series 3, if you're in the UK) offers ten more episodes and, at the start, shuffles the make-up of Section 20. Sgt. Stonebridge (Philip Winchester, a Yank actor posing as a Brit) is off the team, having opted for assignment on British soil to be near his wife. Nowadays, Stonebridge is a training officer at the local S.A.S. Training Camp. Or as one of his mates mockingly addresses him: "Mr. Stonebridge, desk jockey."

This leaves Sgt. Damian Scott (Sullivan Stapleton, an Aussie posing as a Yank) as Section 20's primary field agent. And when Damian is taken prisoner during a soured ops, who else but Stonebridge gets tapped for a bit of a rescue. I guess I can encapsulate stuff and just say that, this time out, Section 20 targets a hijacked set of nuclear triggers. But that's doing a disservice to the show. These ten new episodes make up another thrilling season. There are twists and turns and setback after setback, and, early on, a stroke of tragedy that turns the tables on the Scott/Stonebridge dynamics. Season 2 finds the formerly by-the-book Stonebridge suddenly the loose cannon of the bunch, and the disaffected American, Scott, now the steadying presence.

Strike Back Season 2 is an excellent follow-up to a great first season. The show kept me on the edge of my seat and had one surprise after the other. The acting and writing were top notch and adding Rhona Mitra to the cast was the perfect choice as she brought the show to a whole new level. I'm looking forward to watching the 3rd season.

The byword of the series is "Diplomacy is overrated". This has everything a person could want, action, adventure, sex, explosions, a very good story arc. You never really know what could happen the next minute. The three main characters played by Philip Winchester (Michael Stonebridge), Sullivan Stapleton (Damien Scott) and Rhona Mitra (Rachel Dalton) kick ass plain and simple. They do what needs to be done despite the improbability of survival. Charles Dance plays an great "Bad Guy". The sets are excellent, the scenery (the story is set mostly in South Africa) breathtaking. One warning, once you start watching you may not want to stop till the end.

I absolutely love this show. Honestly, I wish it was a longer season so that they didn't have to cram the whole season's storyline into 10 episodes. Plenty of solid action with great interaction between the main characters. While season 1 US(season 2 for the rest of the world) was better, this was still a great season!

I tried to get into this show - watched three seasons to really give it a shot. The problem with this type of show is multifold (SPOILERS BELOW):

Despite all of the flying bullets, there's never any real tension because you know the leads will NEVER be seriously injured or killed. The Richard Artmitage season was more about John Porter's wits and instinct than "soldiering," so it didn't need the redundant gun battles.

Yet, the entire season is basically "watch Section 20 be incredibly inept and reckless and beg the question of why this is supposed to be such an elite unit." Both lead characters should be dead many times over, especially Damien Scott. And yes, this applies to the Project Dawn season as well.

I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to like Scott, but all I kept thinking was, "This dude would have been dishonorably discharged regardless of any conspiracy." He's supposed to be the ladies' man, the "charismatic" one, yet Stonebridge (when given the chance) is much more effective when talking to others.

The genuinely interesting geopolitics are skimmed over in favor of incessant and pointless gunfights. I was more interested in the Zimbabwean characters, particularly the father and daughter revolutionaries, than any of the personal conflicts of the leads. And the actor (Rhashan Stone) who played Sinclaire brought a sense of integrity and class to the show, so imagine my disappointment with his death.

In summary, the theme song and seeing Winchester shirtless are the best parts of the show.
