Fails on its own terms and on almost every level
1 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You don't have to go back to the original The Bionic Woman starring Lindsay Wagner to dislike the new and not improved at all Bionic Woman.

First of all, Michelle Ryan is just not ready for prime time. She may have been adequate to the super-low expectations of a soap opera, but here she fails to evoke any sort of humanity with her performance. She just prances around, mugging for the camera, trying to act cute. And she does even worse when she has anything dramatic to do: She then has a pained expression on her face that reminds one of a digestive problem.

The directing was equally atrocious, wallowing in the current trend of shaking the camera for no particular reason.

The writing was equally awful, making bad comic book dialog seem brilliant in comparison. The clear intent was to attract female audience by talking about girl power: the result was to annoy everyone with artificial, bad dialog.

And the special effects: well, let's just say that, as has been written elsewhere, the laws of physics don't apply to the SFX scenes. It's actually a common problem of CGI: the people making them are so disconnected from anything real that it looks again like a cartoon.

All this of course has to be laid at the feet of the show-runner, David Eick. He's the one who hired the bad actress, the bad writers, the bad director and the bad SFX people.

hopefully, this will be canceled quickly.
