One of the best action shows in a long time. If you liked "The Professionals" then you will love this as its sort of like it but with more cast members , more violence and more swearing. This and "Life on Mars" are the best series in hell of a long time. A must buy.

  Some good, some bad.

First of all, I enjoyed it overall. It's not some slick hollywood we are wonderful righteous series, cough cough take note "the unit". It's almost gritty and is a more realistic reflection of army life.

I do have two serious bugbears, 1 Ross Kemp, he is Grant Mitchell, he has zero acting ability, 2 with all the people that get shot, few ever get actual bullet wounds and most just fall down, it's hilarous in some places. Actually no there is a third, the third season is pants, really pants. The best characters just disappear, well they actually die, but you never see their faces because they are others playing the characters. But this is a minor point as the real harm is the stories and plots, they are just irrelevent scenes patched together, most makes no sense, no it's worse, it's pointless. Infact no there is a 4th, the SAS seem to not wear body armour, I know they are good and the army is short of a bob or two, but I'm sure they would have the odd vest or two.

  1&2 brilliant 3&4 rubbish!

Series one and two of Ultimate Force were groundbreaking, witty , gritty and realistic. Series One featured Chris Ryan himself. Not sure what happened with series 3&4 but they are total rubbish! Thank heaven for small mercy's like Ross Kemp otherwise I'd have switched off altogether. I really recommend watching series one and two. Series Three and four are total pants (the technical term!)

All series great there is a big difference between 1st/2nd and 3rd/4th series with a whole new cast (other than Ross Kemp AKA Henno!) but the new cast more than make up for loosing the old one (although girls there isn't a replacement for Jamie Draven!) I have to say that Heather Peace is brill in the 3rd and 4th series as she's a girl with balls!!! So it's a must buy if you love a bit of action!!

  great

  Fantastic adaption of what the SAS do !!

| | See all basils1's reviews (6)

Kemp does a very good job of Henno garvy in this no holds barred adaption of what the SAS do. Involved alot more than what people realise and not quite understood. The SAS are the pride of britain, so why not have a drama about them.
