Storyline

Steve Austin and Jamie Sommers are back. This time Steve is working security at an International Goodwill Games. Oscar goes to his office and is attacked by someone who broke in. Later Steve discovers that his security clearance has been downgraded. He and Jaime are told of the incident that Oscar had, and that the person who broke in knew about OSI security protocols and that person was also bionic. So someone is planning something at the Games. So while Steve and Jamie try to find out what is going to happen, Oscar quits the OSI when his nephew is injured, and his request that Rudy Wells operate on his nephew is denied. He is later taken captive. Steve then goes to the General and tells him they need to put someone bionic at the games, and the best person is Kate, Rudy's latest creation.

Jim Goldman: James Goldman. One L.
Jim Castillian: Oh, you're Oscar's nephew. That's right, I heard you were in town. You're training for the games, arent' you?
Jim Goldman: Uh-huh. Runnin' the 400 and the hurdles. Fasted thing on two legs, except of course for Alice Grayson. I never did catch her in four years of college.
Jim Castillian: I used to be an athlete myself.
Jim Goldman: Yeah?
Jim Castillian: Yeah. Not much time for it now, I'm here in the OSI dodging bullets and inner office memos.

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.
