Editorial Reviews

A high-octane, globe-spanning thriller with storylines ripped from today’s headlines, Strike Back is a one-hour drama series that focuses on two members of a top-secret anti-terrorist organization known as Section 20: Michael Stonebridge, a British sergeant in the ultra secret Section 20 anti-terrorist team, and Damien Scott, a Delta Forces operative who was disgraced and discharged on the eve of the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

In a curious decision, Cinemax decided to import the British spy adventure "Strike Back" to its U.S. viewing schedule. In and of itself, that's certainly not a strange choice as this entertaining program is an expert blend of espionage, action, humor, and sex. What is odd is that they started with Season Two (must have to do with money, always has to do with money)! So the designation used in the DVD release stating that this is the Complete First Season is a tad misleading. It is simply the first season that was brought to a North American audience. For purists or completists, the first season is being sold on an All Region DVD/Blu-ray (with potential playback problems for some U.S. players) as "Chris Ryan's Strike Back." So check that out or hope for a Region 1 DVD version. It is six solid and self-contained episodes featuring a tremendously astute and multi-layered performance by Richard Armitage as the central hero John Porter. Armitage does show up to play a pivotal role in the first episode of this season, but the narrative is structured around a core of different actors and an entirely new international threat. You certainly don't have to have seen the Armitage arc to enjoy these episodes, though, this functions fully as a stand-alone adventure.

This season, classified as Project Dawn, consists of ten episodes and introduces two new leads. Square jawed Philip Winchester plays upright Sergeant Michael Stonebridge and he is teamed with ex-Delta Force operative Damien Scott, played by Sullivan Stapleton. In a complicated plot, the two are chasing villains and Weapons of Mass Destruction in a series of global escapades that have them not only on British soil, but in New Delhi, Cape Town, Sudan, and Kosovo.

Fancy a backstory? You're in for one now. Before Cinemax signed on as co-producer, STRIKE BACK was already one season in and flourishing in the UK under the auspices of Sky1 Network. When Cinemax, which had been looking for its own original primetime series, piggybacked and took the show across the pond, the big suits determined to skip Season 1 (comprised of six episodes) altogether and instead launch with Season 2. Season 1 featured Richard Armitage's crack commando John Porter. Except when the Americans tuned in, they only knew him as: one) the catalyst that gets one main character onboard and two) as sacrificial lamb. So be aware that our Season 1 - ten episodes long - is actually the UK's Season 2, with Armitage barely in it.

I dig the stylish opening credits, by the way, and especially the smoky theme song, "Short Change Hero" by the Heavy. The song right away sets you in the mood for globe-trotting skullduggery and blistering special forces-type combat. Every nation boasts its own covert elite unit of heart breakers and life takers, and the Brits have got their own. Section 20 doesn't exist, is the official stance, never mind that it's a branch of the British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6). This nonexistent stealth military unit handles the sort of missions that would make Jack Bauer giddy; it specializes in "high risk priority targets," so cue that generous heap of nasty black ops and wholesale wetworks and enough impressive weaponry to make Charlton Heston's eyes grow big.

When Section 20 agent John Porter is abducted by the international terrorist Latif, and Latif proceeds to make Section 20 look dang silly in their rescue attempts, it's time to call for reinforcements.

24 off the air! The Border off the air! Spooks in the final season! Caught Strike Back on Cinemax and it is great to watch a series with a budget that is not hampered by US censors. Violence galore, nudity and a very interesting plot. Strike Back may not have the complexity of Spooks, though with much more in your face violence, it is like 24 on steroids with some of the witty dialogue reminiscent of the last 2 seasons of The Border. As this is done in a serial format, watching in a few sittings would be like a really long non stop action movie. Highly recommended.

Few quasi spoilers : Watching the Amazon Prime Version of Season 1. The story development is interesting and locales pretty interesting, The first half of each episode is cool but then the finale is always a bit absurd. For instance, in the beginning, British Intelligence brings in a Pakistani ISI operative, to help them nail/thwart some major terrorist plot in India without the knowledge of Indian intelligence. First, given the heightened tensions between those two old friends, uh, I mean enemies (politically that is, not the people) , there is no way anyone of any import from the ISI could enter India and it not be known to Indian powers-that-be. That aside, the British would never trust the Pakistanis over the Indians and to top it all, the guy is a renegade. How stupid can the Brits be ? No George Smiley's in this crew, All Tinker, some Soldier, little Tailor and No Spy !

And it is funny how one Pakistani renegade is one step ahead of all the Intelligence Agencies thereafter. I mean if this guy is after such serious weapons, American intelligence, firepower and drones would be tracking this clown all over the planet. And it's not like this dude is hiding in Pakistan, or Afghanistan, or Dubai or Qatar or Saudi Arabia, he's traveling the world in style, this Latif character. And the only folks interested in his shenanigans are some obscure British Intelligence agency - that is what makes this lack authenticity, where are MI6, the SAS ? Also, somehow one guy, who is the British super-soldier supposedly, comes in to rescue members of the team, all of the time, that is also a bit ridiculous, for the situations at hand, they'd come in light, in force, and with firepower, no choppers anywhere.
