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.

2 July 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Was I glad to see some more of Steve and Jaime. I just loved the 1970's series. However I missed two things in all three reunion movies. First of all, I missed the 1970's look (furniture, clothes, cars, etc.) since I believe the 1970's was the ONLY decade that had style and taste (I hated the 1980's). But most importantly, where were the Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman theme music? It was a mistake not to include the themes. In fact, almost all remakes/reunion movies used the theme of the original shows. Just look at Mission Impossible, The Saint, The Wild Wild West, The Avengers, SWAT, etc. They all used the themes of the shows those movies were based upon. It wouldn't be James Bond without the James Bond theme. Yet sadly in none of the SMDM-BW reunion movies the theme from either show was present.
