As you probably know, USA’s Burn Notice is one of The Blot’s favorite television shows and Bruce Campbell is one of my favorite actors. So you know I’m super excited for this Sunday’s world premiere of the new made for TV movie Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe starring the B-movie legend. Fans of the show have been talking about this 2hr movie for months, really ever since it was first announced it at SDCC last summer. Directed by Burn Notice’s own Jeffrey Donovan, the movie explores how Sam (Campbell) came to be an ex-Navy SEAL and living in Miami, which is where we meet the character in the first episode of Burn Notice. I've read some mixed reviews of the movie so far, but really as long as it's got Bruce fighting bad guys, what more could you need?
The original movie Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe airs this Sunday, April 17th, at 9/8c on USA.
Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe Official Synopses: Before Sam Axe teamed up with Michael and Fiona, he was Commander Axe, U.S. Navy SEAL. The Fall of Sam Axe tells the story of how Sam went from respected Naval Commander to the man of mystery we've come to know on Burn Notice. On what will turn out to be Sam's last military mission, he is sent to the jungles of Colombia to investigate claims of a vicious terrorist organization known only as the "Espada Ardiente" (Flaming Sword). His mission: to determine whether U.S. military aid is necessary to deal with the threat. But when he arrives, things are more complicated than he'd imagined. He receives word that the rebels have targeted a small civilian clinic deep in the jungle. Sam must now save the clinic's doctors and patients from certain death. However, nothing is as it seems and the Espada Ardiente may not be the biggest threat Sam Axe faces.
