  • Dr. Rudy Wells is Back.

    7.3
    While in Austria, visiting his 'Bionic Father' and mentor, Dr. Wells, Steve Austin finds himself in a very hostile environment, where everybody plots together to harm our hero. Whole villages seem to spy for the dim Tucelli brothers, who in their quest to obtain a 'Bionic Bankrobber' have kidnapped the scientist (played by the 2nd pilot's Alan Oppenheimer).



    Austin and Wells make a cunning team and easely outsmart the villains. Even with Steve's bionic arm out of order and left to his legwork, they make an easy escape.



    The arena-like combat scenes, rendered in slow motion still don't really work and often look outright ridiculous.

    The same can be said about the city- and village sets which make Austria look like a pre-World War II backwater with funny autmobiles. Even two exiting car chases can't save this impression.



    Dr. Wells has every reason to beam with pride at the achievements of his 'creation'. Those caracters, Goldman, Wells and Austin, make a fantastic trio. It's a pity we don't see them very often together, at this point in the series.moreless
