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.

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.

Quotes

Gen. McAllister: As far as I'm concerned, nobody is snow white. If some foreign power, if some group of terrorists, if some indivudial concern has found out how to build a bionic man or a bionic woman... Just imagine what an army of them would be like...

For die-hard fans of the original TV shows
4 July 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

American cheats to win gold at the Olympics. True story? No, but if it was, it could be about ANY American athlete...Marion Jones et.al.

Actually, this is a movie which brings back TV favourites "The six million dollar man" and "The bionic woman"...remember? Steve Austin as the six dollar million man? Jaime Sommers as the bionic woman? These two characters are people who have had horrific accidents which nearly kill them, but they are 'fixed' by a secret US government organisation using advanced mechanical/electronic devices (to replace lost or damaged limbs/organs). Austin and Sommers then use their 'superpowers' to fight spys etc. That's the basic plot of the old series.

This telemovie (?) features Sandra Bullock (!!) as a new 'bionic' person. Looks to have been a pilot which never got commissioned into a television series. Surprise, surprise!

If you are nostalgic about the original series, you will enjoy seeing Austin and Sommers again. The special effects are different to the original series. I'm giving this movie a really low score for the stupid Olympics segment I mentioned earlier. Truly inane. Did the US Olympic team watch this movie for inspiration/justification?

Anyway, I first saw this movie LATE at night on commercial TV, maybe a couple of years ago, or so. May even have been a premier! For die-hard fans only.
