The story centers around Sam having to train a ragtag band of farmers in Columbia who are mistakenly branded a terrorist organization to survive an attack by a corrupt paramilitary organization who want their land. There are also the requisite North American aid workers who get involved in the story, and toward the end a couple bumbling CIA officers who show up in Season 7 of the TV show. The story kind of skirts the line between serious and campy, and does have some tie ins to the show (like the origin of Sam's alias Chuck Finley).
While Campbell did a fine acting job and plays his character well, I just think it lacked what makes the TV show so great. I know there are some people who really dislike this, and if you were expecting it to be more like the TV show as opposed to a stand alone movie, I can understand that sentiment. It is certainly not something that you have to see in order to understand anything in the series. Aside from knowing who the CIA agents are when they show up in the 7th season of the TV show, there is nothing else from this that has been tied in.
As far as extras, there is audio commentary, some deleted scenes and a feature on Jeffrey Donovan directing. Overall I think it is OK. Certainly not great, but for a $10 blu ray disc, it was worth the price.
