Back, Cinemax’s first
foray into the scripted
series arena, stars Sullivan
Stapleton as a former
U.S. Special Forces operative who teams with
an elite British military unit led by Philip Winchester
to try to thwart an international terrorist group.
What starts out as a run-of-the-mill, testosterone filled action show filled with cartoon heroes and
villains — as well as healthy dose of violence, sex
and nudity — settles in nicely about one-third of the
way through the first episode .
While not on the level of 24, fans of Cinemax will
love Strike Back’s fast-paced action, while the storyline
should keep spy/espionage/thriller aficionados
tuned in throughout the 10-part series.
Strike Back bows on Cinemax on Aug. 12 at 10 p.m.
