5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect finish., 13 Nov. 2012
This review is from: The Shield - Season 7 - Complete [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
It's season 7 of The Shield - The final act - and the cat is well and truly out of the bag. As the noose begins to tighten round the Strike Team's neck you're in for a treat.

The Shield, as a whole, is a brilliant body of work and some of the most exciting TV I've ever seen. It pushed the envelope in the areas of both style and story. I'm happy to say that you'll find this same quality in every episode of the final season and every single frame of the final show, right up to the final scene.

The writing, as usual, is very clever with some great lines and ideas played out - it continues on from and concludes directly the story arc from season 6 - and it's interesting to watch how your own emissions shift as things play out: you start to feel for characters you despised and hate others who were heroes.

The docu-drama style of directing still looks great and adds an real edge to the build up and resolve of a web of deceit that had been slowly built up over previous seasons. As the Strike Team dissolves we're given a dark yet immensely satisfying conclusion to events, in what is some extremely powerful scenes and emotional and disturbing TV. The final episodes in particular are not an easy watch and often end in tragedy.

If you're expecting a happy ending for all involved - you'll be bitterly disappointed. The Shield stays true to its roots and gives you a tough, gritty, edge of your seat finale which is messy to say the least. But hey, with everyone in it up to their necks - was it ever going to end any other way?
