Fans should enjoy Campbell's performance, but Sam Axe deserved a more interesting fall.

Truthfully, I wasn't blown away by Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe, but I did enjoy the movie for what it was worth.

Fall is capably directed by Burn star Jeffrey Donovan and, at times, provides enjoyable distraction, but it mostly fails to live up to Sam Axe standards.

March 6, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

It's still good and it clearly had a bigger budget than the weekly series. But this was essentially a two hour episode of Burn Notice.

Really, this is the sort of lightweight adventure we should be seeing Bruce Campbell in much more often...

Audience Reviews for Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe

A great blast of an adventure. It's absolutely a wonderful time on the television set with this great prequel to one of the USA Networks best shows, Burn Notice. The shows star, Jeffrey Donovan directs this special made-for tv movie that delivers the shows trademark of dark humor, crisp action and smarts. A thrilling, funny, action-packed and very entertaining movie. Bruce Campbell is perfect, he returns to one of his most popular characters past, bringing lots of fun and energy to the role and showing he is having a great time with this story.

SNL: "What is Burn Notice?" "Is it a reality show about sunglasses?"

This is, in my opinion, the best made-for-TV movie I have ever seen. Bruce Campbell is perfect in this kind of role.
