5.0 out of 5 stars Great series, Amazon's slightly misleading you though...
Both series are fantastic, with great acting and plot(based on Chris Ryan's books). HOWEVER [SPOILER]....in series 2 John Porter, though his part is relevant for the backround of the series plot, has only a small role in the beginning and is then almost forgotten about unless mentioned. Still buy this, but don't expect to be seeing John Porter kicking down lots of doors...

1.0 out of 5 stars hugely disappointing
rather shallow and full of flaws - typically of a production where the writer and producer has no idea of military or covert ops action or was forced to dial it down for the masses (and the obligation not to shock anybody);

5.0 out of 5 stars What a rush!, 8 Jan 2012
This review is from: Strike Back - Series 1 & 2 (Chris Ryan's Strike Back + Strike Back: Project Dawn) [DVD] (DVD)
Over sexed, over violent, implausible totally escapist fun! This series of Strike Back is not for those who are looking for a serious commentary on our troubled times and mature, measured responses to the many problems facing us today. It is for the hard core fans of extreme action and adventure who can stomach the violence, forgive the profanity and enjoy the many, many gratuitous sex scenes. Sit back, disengage brain and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action packed!, 19 Jun 2012
This review is from: Strike Back - Series 1 & 2 (Chris Ryan's Strike Back + Strike Back: Project Dawn) [DVD] (DVD)
Great series! Wonderful script writing. The plot is realistic and the action for the most part is authentic as well! Very believable. Great entertainment. The realism makes this DVD set even more addictive! Razor sharp wit, plenty of action, unpredictable character deaths, predictable character deaths, colourful baddies, addictive funny good guys, authentic believeable action, movement and fight sequences of special forces operators, beautiful locations........and women! There's even something for the ladies to look at too! Simply a must see DVD set! The new Strike Back season 3 trailer is out as well, it starts in September!!!

This review is from: Strike Back - Series 1 & 2 (Chris Ryan's Strike Back + Strike Back: Project Dawn) [DVD] (DVD)
Great DVD of series 1 and 2. Bought for my husband who is a big fan of Strike Back when shown on tv. Music is brilliant, acting is fantastic and each series portrays a realistic account of Chris Ryan's novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Series, 23 Dec 2011

We bought Strike Back 1 & 2 because we had watched a couple of episodes from series 1 on TV and loved them.
Having now watched the complete series 1 and 2 we can honestly say that it is probably one of the best we have ever seen.
Once we started watching the series we found it difficult to stop, when reaching the end of the series were both disappointed as we wanted more.
The action is non-stop from start to finish and you have little idea of what is coming next.
The quality of the audio and video was superb as was the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bags of action and mayhem, 9 Feb 2014

This review is from: Strike Back - Series 1 & 2 (Chris Ryan's Strike Back + Strike Back: Project Dawn) [DVD] (DVD)
This is just what the doctor ordered. It's fast paced and the decent budget provides bags of action, big scary bad guys, and loads of extras getting blasted in the face. There's a fair old smattering of the sexy sex too! Even though it's an action series the contemporary scripts are quite engaging and despite the massive reliance on gunfire and explosions, the leads are well scripted so they don't come across as complete morons. In terms of concept, it's the latest in a long line of action duo's such as The Professionals and Saracen. I have to say I love the theme tune too. The leads look great and the casting is above par for an action series. If you like this try Banshee, it's from the same production company.

This review is from: Strike Back - Series 1 & 2 (Chris Ryan's Strike Back + Strike Back: Project Dawn) [DVD] (DVD)
Excellent characterisation, rip roaring plot that moves at frantic speed while still making sense, the idea of a theme or project running through all the episodes provided a good structure to hang the exploits of Mike and Damian on, a blast from start to finish!
