Review this tv show
Feb 12, 2018While lacking a creative story line and charismatic characters, Strike Back serves an adequate reboot to entertain some fans in terms of well-done action sequences and overall pacing. Many would agree that bringing Stapleton and Winchester back could potentially boost the show's original popularity.

At the same time, the whole thing feels a bit thinner and more formulaic than the previous incarnation. ... It so far feels only as good as it needs to be, which is a step down from what the prior incarnation showed it could do.
