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.

Trivia

While the "Flaming Sword" kept VeraCruz's men pinned down in the valley, one of the farmers manages to tag one of the Colombian soldiers. Sam compliments him saying "Good Shot Mando! Don't get cocky." Such is what Han Solo said to Luke Skywalker in Episode 4 of Star Wars during their escape from the Death Star. See more »

Goofs

When the helicopters come up firing, you can see the actors' breaths and see fog in the background scenery. Just prior to and following the helicopters' arrival and firing, the sun is shining and no frigid temps. See more »

Quotes

Sam Axe: So between these tanks and the fuel out back, we should have just enough to blow the place.
Ben DelaneyAmanda Maples: Whoa...!
Amanda Maples: No, you're not going to destroy the clinic! Isn't Veracruz coming to do the exact same thing?
Sam Axe: No, Veracruz wants to destroy the clinic with the people inside. I want to destroy the clinic to create a distraction to *save* the people. Little bit of a difference.

Fun to see Sam Axe back story.
23 April 2011 | by film127See all my reviews

Our family was thrilled to see that we'd be getting more of Bruce Campbell as Sam Axe. He did a good job with the material. You definitely see his Burn Notice character's core integrity in this.

The writing has some funny and some drama, but at times was a bit obvious and clunky. The only thing that really nagged me was the shrewish attitude of the lead female. Don't know if she was directed to play it that way or if it was the writing, but it was annoying.

Some of the other posters commented on the CGI. I didn't really care about that. You still get the gist of the action regardless.

Overall, it's worth a look to get the back story on a popular character. And get more Bruce Campbell in your life.
