Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe
Chosen by me because I like Burn Notice I guess.

Bruce Campbell has been turning in some terrific performances in the show Burn Notice, a minor but fun Macguyver knock off and here was a movie to fill in some of the back story of his enjoyable character Sam Axe.
Unfortunately this is a rather lame flashback, with some ok action and nice Campbell beats (very silly but funny call back to Evil Dead with a chainsaw) but lacks any real dramatic tension. The stakes don't feel especially high, Sam Axe doesn't really do anything more or less than Sam Axe would generally do.
It all feels rather generic lacking any sort of twist or oomph to spice up proceedings.
