    Season 3 is off to a great start. I had a feeling adding Rhona Mitra to the cast last season was a mistake, but she's come a hell of a long way. The show is maturing, and it's not just for the sex & violence anymore. But yeah, there's still plenty of both.

    The chemistry between Winchester and Stapleton is a treat, the action scenes remain brutal and thrilling and fun, and the show transcends simple guilty pleasure status by paying enough attention to the emotional toll this kind of work takes on the people who do it.

    With an elaborate action sequence nearly every 10 minutes, Strike Back is easy, Vacuous, fun. [16/23 Aug 2013, p.104]

    Three seasons in, Cinemax's Strike Back is the ultimate shoot-first think-later exercise in outrageous mayhem and explosively over-the-top buddy heroics.
