Strike Back is Back!
12 June 2015 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

With the introduction of Stonebridge and Scott, Strike Back has become one of my favourite TV-series ever. Rarely you see a series getting better and better with each season. Now, after a seemingly endless time of waiting, they are back, and man, they are better than ever! According to the story, an ambassador's daughter has been kidnapped by some bad dudes in Thailand. Their motives are unclear, but they force the ambassador to do as they please. This is some serious issue, as in the meantime, the ambassador is a key figure in some diplomatic conference between the UK and North Korea, including other nations. Peace is fragile and the ambassador is being pulled by strings. He asks for help though: Philippe Locke, leader of Section 20 is a good friend of him, so Mike and Damien now have to act quickly and firmly to avoid a political catastrophe, which can easily lead to military aggression. This opening episode of the (sadly) last season of this great series packs a punch. I was on the edge of my seat for more than 40 minutes, and had to realize that Strike Back is (still) easily more exciting, better choreographed and action-packed than most big budget Hollywood movies nowadays. I am really looking forward to watch the next episode and see where this is going. So far, I am extremely optimistic about this season!
