a lot of goofs but still worth watching
16 April 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Having seen the flick based on the novel Cyborg which I loved a lot this flick here was the second flick about Steve Austin way before the series started and moved away from the Cyborg story. The typical bionic sound is used here but still no sign of his bionic eye.

Although it moved away from Cyborg it comes closer towards the series were our six million dollar man had to solve some world problems. It looked a bit sometimes like a James Bond with superpowers and that's because he also seduces beautiful ladies (Britt Ekland) among others.

But still it's not too bad because the sentences used by Steve are sometimes funny. But where as the original movie didn't had that many goofs this one does. There is use of footage from the original flick when Steve is thinking what happened to him, strange to see because non of the actors in that footage are in this flick. But as in the original flick they used stock footage and here are a few major mistakes. In the beginning we see a blue helicopter moving towards a submarine but when the submarine is shown suddenly we got a complete other helicopter and to make it worse it also had another color. And they even used that whole sequence twice! When Steve's making his escape in the beginning we do have day combined with stock footage night scene's although it has to be day or night. Still there are other goofs but not as clear to see as the latter ones. One involves a door when he escapes after releasing himself from chains. Just see what he is doing with the hinge pins and how the door is opened.

In comes Richard Anderson who also did a part in Bionic Woman. He is a regular later in the series as Oscar Goldman. Also a regular in the series is Alan Oppenheimer as Dr. Rudy Wells. And see David McCallum as Alexi Kaslov who becomes The Invisible Man (1975-1976) still unreleased on DVD.

It's much slower than the original flick but still worth watching where you can see how the character of Steve grown. It is sometimes a bit slow especially the scene with, again, stock footage of catching a sword fish. But it did survived the time and one to see if you are a sci-fi fan or even likes action flicks from the seventies.
