no use of the typical bionic effects
21 April 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

The third flick about Steve Austin just before the series started. Where the second flick made use of the bionic sound here it is again left out. Even the slow motion parts when he uses his bionic powers are left out. For me this third flick moved way from the series. Also still no sign of the use of his bionic eye.

What annoyed me the most was the editing. It is clearly to see that this version available in the box of series volume 1 is re-edited but really worse. You can see their mouths move while they say nothing or you could easily see that sometimes voices where overdubbed. And the weird close-ups of Steve Austin and others are so strange. They doesn't offer anything, they even used some freezes of eyes to include while listening.

Still, the script itself is okay with again an James Bond look-a-like macho Austin with a bit of comedy. I was more into the second flick but this is also worth watching. Almost 40 years old and still standing were so many other series from way back in time failed to survive.

All characters are the same as in the second flick, even the actors are the same.
