Storyline

A group of mercenaries dressed as soldiers rob a bank, escaping by plane from which they parachute out. It is a demonstration to impress smooth villain Simon Sinclair whom they coerce into employing them on another job. For Bodie their capture is more than a job for he knows them from his own mercenary days and their leader, Krivas, killed his girlfriend. Acting on information from captured gang member Benny, Cowley 'suspends' Doyle and Bodie to thwart the raid and get Krivas in their own way. Written by don @ minifie-1

Where the Jungle Ends
1 December 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

David Suchet is the leader of a group of mercenaries that has pulled a daring, violent bank job and an audacious escape from the air.

However all this was to impress one man so they can pull off even more valuable heists that would make the men rich enough to retire.

Bodie knows them, he once worked with them and together with Doyle they are out to stop them.

This was a violent episode but the production at times looked inept. Speeded up car chases, stock footage, it was badly edited at times.

Still Bodie and Doyle are a lot of fun even if it lapses into silliness. This mission is personal for Bodie.
