Back: Final Season
B+ Sound: B+ Extras: B Episodes: B
is a nicely-produced military action series on Cinemax and HBO that
stars Philip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton. Presented
astonishingly on Blu-ray in crisp 1080p high definition, this ten
episode season looks and sounds fantastic on disc.
discussed in our previous reviews, the series focuses on two highly
skilled members of Section 20, a secret British anti-terrorist
organization of super soldiers. Michael Stonebridge (Philip
Winchester), a consummate British soldier still struggling to
overcome tragedy in his life, and Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton),
a disgraced U.S. Delta Force operative who has found redemption with
S20. In this final season, Stonebridge and Scott face their biggest
assignment yet involving a global threat involving a ruthless network
of international terrorists.
Stonebridge and their S20 colleagues Philip Locke (Robson Green),
Julia Richmond (Michelle Lukes) and Kim Martinez (Milauna Jackson)
try to crack a missing-persons case in Bangkok, but what's on the
surface is only the first step in a massive terrorist plot.
in 1080p High Definition with a 1.78:1 widescreen aspect ratio and a
crisp, lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 track, the show looks
and sounds superb on Blu-ray disc far overshadowing its television
debut. If you are a fan of the show, you will defiantly want it in
this outstanding quality. Extras include four Production Recon
Featurettes and 6 How
to Strike Back
in all, if you are into action and military exploits then this show
is right up your alley. If you missed the previous seasons, start
