News & Interviews for Strike Back: Legacy
The watchwords of golden-age TV are characterisation, complexity, and ambiguity. Strike Back smacks that logic in the nuts before throwing it off a moving train that's about to explode.
As much fun as it was watching the "Strike Back" production team work wonders on a tiny budget and cramped schedule, I can only imagine how cool it would be to see Scott and Stonebridge wreaking their special brand of mayhem on a big screen.
I have very much enjoyed this show, which has always exuded an intelligence that made it both enjoyably substantial and emotionally engaging. But all good things must come to an end.
Perhaps the most appealing thing about Strike Back, at least on a subliminal level, is its utter lack of moral equivalence. Good is good and bad is bad and nobody's going to force you to feel guilty about any gray areas.
It's a shame that Strike Back is leaving us with when it still feels capable of shouldering a few more world-ending crises, but it's going into its ending with gas in the tank and its clips fully loaded.
It incorporates the look and spirit of video games and violent comic books into a television series as well as any show around.
Searching for meaning in Strike Back is like asking a garden shed for investment tips, but it's amusing to watch some quite good actors trying to take the script seriously. The poor dears have to eat, after all.
It's breathlessly paced, with some seriously well-choreographed chase sequences through Bangkok's canals and alleyways. Welcome back, guys!
Those violent altercations, fun action sequences, and general sense of adventure are why people tune in to Strike Back and the show doesn't need to be more than that.
Strike Back is the kind of show that blends effortless cool with unrelenting action.
Audience Reviews for Strike Back: Legacy
May 13, 2016Just a good old fashion testosterone filled shoot em up, sprinkled with some Tom Clancy style spy stuff, and sex. Awesome show to watch while drinking a beer, knawing on a chunk of dead charred animal flesh roasted over an open flame, and grunting like a caveman or Tim Allen! NOT FOR THE KIDDIES!
Aug 28, 2015Original series was a thousand times better. Sullivan Stapleton is a crap actor and now he's ruining the very promising Blindspot. Great premise, brutal execution. Hire a totally new cast for that one and then we'll have something.
