If you’re in search of a tub-thumping new action thriller with a healthy dose of intrigue, look no further than Last Resort. It stars Andre Braugher as Captain Marcus Chaplin, the commander of a submarine loaded with ballistic missiles who finds himself in the horns of a dilemma when he receives the ultimate order – to fire nuclear weapons at Pakistan. Unsure of the validity of the command, he refuses, and he and his crew are declared rogue enemies of the United States, forced to go on the run.
One of the writers is Shawn Ryan, who also penned The Shield. Alongside Braugher, the cast features Scott Speedman (Underworld), Daisy Betts (Sea Patrol), Dichen Lachman (Dollhouse), Sahr Ngaujah (House of Payne), Autumn Reeser (Hawaii Five-O), Jessy Schram (Falling Skies, Once Upon a Time), and recurring guest star Robert Patrick (The Gangster Squad).
After watching the trailer (shown below), I for one will not be messing with Andre Braugher anytime soon.
