Storyline

Ten years after his retirement from the government, Colonel Steve Austin must again team up with Jaime Sommers to stop a terrorist group. Complicating matters for Austin are his estranged son Michael, who struggles for his father's acceptance as he graduates from flight school, and Jaime, who must cope with her and Steve's past. When Michael is severely injured in a crash, Steve must make the same decision about fitting him with bionics that he had to make with Jaime years ago after her accident.

Trivia

Steve's stated reason for his not assisting Chris Williams on his final mission, and thus not being there to possibly save Chris from death, was merely that Steve had retired from the O.S.I., and so he didn't want to participate in any more missions. Although it is not brought out in the story, however, an obvious implication is that another reason that Steve would not have wanted to accompany Chris Williams, is that he would have felt awkward working alongside someone who was Jaime's new heartthrob.

When Steve jumps off of the building to save Jaime, he turns in mid-air to land on his side or back. When he lands on the car he is face down on all fours. See more »

Hit And Miss TV Movie
5 May 2018 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

The first of three bionic reunion TV movies.

This film is okay but I personally don't think it captured the spirit of the original Six Million Dollar Man series. The 1970s series featured almost no characterisation for Steve, and that is exactly how I liked it. I wanted to see Steve fight Bigfoot or the Death Probe or Fembots or cold war terrorists. This 1987 film reveals that Steve was a bad father and I just don't want to know or hear about that stuff!! The original series was about Steve: The Hero, so this depressing soapy stuff is just not welcome!

Adding to the problems with the reunion, the musical score is revolting!

But having said all this, there is the odd good moment with bad guy Martin Landau, Richard Anderson (Oscar) that is very pleasing, we have a few good action scenes and the new bionic boy/man storyline is well done.

Hit and miss best describes this TV movie.
