Strike Back Season Two 2011

     British secret service MI6’s special operations Section 20 is sent to different countries in search of Latif, the Pakistani Al-Qaeda mastermind.  Latif is behind many crimes of terrorism and the originator of rogue threats to peace.  In episode 1, Sergeant Michael Stonebridge asks for help from former Delta Force operative Damien Scott.  Agent John Porter from Section 20 has been kidnapped.  Also, clues are uncovered about a possible terrorist attack on a New Delhi hotel.   Stonebridge has decided to take an assignment in Britain but he’s called in when Scott is taken prisoner because the operation failed.
     Okay, all you need to film a special ops operation for Cinemax are numerous nude scenes, burning cars, cover by darkness, many weapons and unlimited ammo!!  You don’t need a plot, that would be just extraneous and it requires extra work and thought.  It would just probably cost a lot more money and get in the way too?  I see by the reviews that a lot of people like this, it must be for the nonstop killing and action?  2 1/2* (This series is so-so)

45 min each episode, 450 min total, 5 discs, Action with Sullivan Stapleton, Philip Winchester, Michelle Lukes, Rhashan Stone.

Note:  Imdb 8.3 out of 10, 91% critic 89% audience on Rotten Tomatoes, Amazon 4.6* out of 5* with 4393 reviews.
Special Note:  Titles for this season are Project Dawn #1 through 9.  Filmed in South Africa and Hungary.
