Storyline

Ten years after his retirement from the government, Colonel Steve Austin must again team up with Jaime Sommers to stop a terrorist group. Complicating matters for Austin are his estranged son Michael, who struggles for his father's acceptance as he graduates from flight school, and Jaime, who must cope with her and Steve's past. When Michael is severely injured in a crash, Steve must make the same decision about fitting him with bionics that he had to make with Jaime years ago after her accident.

Did You Know?

Trivia

Technically there were two other bionic people besides Steve and Jaime. Barney Hiller, who was in "The Seven Million Dollar Man", was a race car driver who suffered an accident and had both legs and both arms replaced by cybernetic attachments. And Andy Sheffield ("The Bionic Boy") also had bionic implants. See more »

Goofs

The overturned car lurches and flips over farther on its own after Steve lets go of it, and is suspended in midair during the operation; obviously the car is on a rotating hydraulic ram that's attached to its front end and is turning the car. See more »

Quotes

Steve Austin: What did Brubaker say about me?
Michael Austin: He said that the reason you gave up flying is because you left your guts on the flight deck.
Steve Austin: Well, punch him in the mouth.
Michael Austin: I did.

He should have stayed away...
5 January 1999 | by (Newark, DE) – See all my reviews

This film should never have been made. That being said, I did think it was funny - only because of the poor acting, bad plot, and that fact that it was a Six Million Dollar Man remake.

The basic plot is that Steve Austin (Mr. Six Million himself)is asked to return to service by old boss Oscar Goldman. Austin refuses, even after they trot the Six Million Dollar Woman back onto the scene. She was supposed to marry Austin as one time, but got amnesia and only now remembers what they once meant to each other (gag). Anyway, it turns out Austin had a son he never knew about. The son gets hurt in an accident (of course - apparently everyone connected with Austin gets in a life-threatening accident) and Astin agrees to go back to work for Goldman if he will save his son by giving him some bionics.

This film should never have been made. That being said, I did think it was funny - only because of the poor acting, bad plot, and that fact that it was a Six Million Dollar Man remake.

This TV movie was made extremely cheaply. It shows in almost every shot. They still wear bad clothing and Jamie (Six Mil. Dollar Woman) has a really bad hairdo going on. The acting is incredibly bad all around. The only one who hasn't appeared to age 20 years is old man Goldman, who was old to start with.

Unless you REALLY like the Six Million Dollar Man, or just enjoy laughing at TV's attempts to rehash old shows over and over again, avoid this one. If you're in the mood for a laugh - this has 'em, but you probably won't last the whole movie.
