Storyline

As informal punishment for an unwitting affair with admiral Gregory Maitland's adulterous wife, Sam Axe, a US Navy Commander, was sent to Colombia to observe the suspected rebel movement Espada Ardiente ('Burning Sword'). Now he's under investigation for allegedly consorting with those alleged terrorists. He explains how he discovered that his Colombian army liaison Comandante Veracruz was the real drug dealers cahoot, who pailed on framing Axe and presumably innocent farmers for the bombing of an American-run Andes clinic. Sam escaped and tried to help the civilians and forces CIA observers to demand urgent help. He even found a trump card to avoid conviction for his illegal methods and a favorable discharge.

Sam Axe: So, look, what do you think I should do here?
Michael Westen: Go to Maitland and explain. Tell him you didn't know who she was until things had already gotten out of hand. In fact, call him right now.
Sam Axe: Mike, that's not what I- look, I was more looking for that super-spy advice on how to keep this quiet.

Playfully lightweight action comedy
15 August 2013 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

As of today, I have consecutively seen all available Burn Notice series and, in general, I can say I like it a lot. Well, some activities make you shrug your shoulders and ponder on moral and disclosure issues, but the versatility of characters is the strongest part of the series. Including Sam Axe, whose certain frivolity provides additional value - also visible in The Fall of Sam Axe. The plot has been exploited multiple times and series viewers know the outcome, but still: Sam's attitudes, nattering, cautiousness and finding witty solutions are pleasant to follow, and some twists included bring the movie beyond trivial punishment expedition of Latin American cartels. Many other characters are seen in the series as well.

Must for series followers (as Sam's past was only briefly referred there), for the others - nice 1,5 hour in front of screen.
