Die Hard meets Bourne meets Macguyver
13 February 2009 | by shubanSee all my reviews

This episode shows how Micheal at his best innovative, cool under pressure and able to improvise at the last second.

There is a funny banter between Fiona and Sam as always, and almost a Carla from cheers moment from Fiona

Alex Carter can play slimy very well, but also shows a more noble side to his character. We see that Michael being smarter than him was no one off.

There is not as many hot bods here on display as in a usual Burn Notice episode.

What there is in 40 minutes an example of how to protect hostages the non die hard way.
