Review: Strike Back

Strike Back is a British action series launched back in 2010. The story of this series is directly related to the fight against terrorism, and the conflicts are quite realistic. Another factor that contributes to the realism of the series is the fact that the scenes taking place in South Africa were also filmed in this country. The series protagonists are not free from danger, often finding themselves in situations out of which sometimes they can't get alive.

The action in the first season has Hugh Collinson and John Porter in its foreground.
John Porter is a SAS soldier. During a mission to release a hostage in Iraq, John had saved the life of a child who was assigned with a suicide attack. Being left alone and unsupervised, the child took a gun and killed three British soldiers. Following this event and being accused, he chose to withdraw from SAS. Things take another twist when seven years later John recognizes the child as one of the terrorists responsible for the kidnapping of a journalist.

Hugh Collinson is the commanding officer of the Section 20. Former captain in the intelligence services, Hugh was also involved in the hostage extraction mission in Iraq along with Sergeant John Porter. Seven years later, despite their disagreements, the two are bound to work together in high risk missions.

Verdict:

This is an extremely well done British series, very realistic, whose action takes place on about three continents being just suitable for thrill lovers. There's no lack of backstage games, intrigues, commando actions, modern technologies, spies, terrorists, rebels and of course of the usual casualties.
