Strike Back: Final Season (2014/Cinemax Season Four/HBO Blu-ray Set)

Picture: B+ Sound: B+ Extras: B Episodes: B

Strike Back 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.

As 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.

Scott, 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.

Presented 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 featurettes.

All 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 with them first and see our coverage of them elsewhere on this site.
