Trivia

At one point in the movie, Oscar Goldman states that there are only four bionic human beings: Steve Austin, Jamie Sommers, Michael Austin and Kate Mason. In the bionic universe there are actually supposed to be six: Barney Miller / Hiller, the Seven Million Dollar Man, (played by Monte Markham) and Andy Sheffield (played by Vincent Van Patten) who became the Bionic Boy in 1976. But then again, Barney and Andy may have died somewhere between the 1970's and this movie (1989), leaving indeed only four bionic human beings: Steve Austin, Jamie Sommers, Michael Austin and Kate Mason.

It's good because of Sandra Bullock
31 January 2006 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

Another made for TV movie based on the hit show is BACK! This time, they can get the help they could ever need. "The Bionic Showdown" is way more thrilling than the show ever could give. Steve and Jamie(Lee Majors& Lindsey Wagner) get a new assistant who is younger and faster than they are. There's Kate Mason(Sandra Bullock), the first volunteer to become bionic. Jamie had helped her get over the feeling after the accident before becoming bionic. And the action is never lost in this movie. Allan(Geraint Wyn Davies) is a "friend" of Kate, Steve, and Jamie. This guy later showed his true colors to be a spy, and a traitor. When Kate found out while she was racing, She really put her bionics to the test. Allan should have known better about using his bionics. Misuse leads to uncertainty, and most will learn the hard way one way or the other. I thought Barney Miller was a problem in the SMDM. At least he got redemption. Plenty of action, plenty of suspense, and plenty of surprise, this movie got it all, and the reunion goes on and on... Rating 3 out of 5 stars.
