  • Steve Austin : International man of bionic mystery.

    3rd time, good time? It would seem so.



    This film has, again, many elements that are found in a Bond movie (Bad guys in tanker-HQ, Ford Knox gold, an Aspen skilog... even an older Bondgirl,Luciana Paluzzi), but... it stays imaginative and entertaining.



    In this pre-carbon footprint panic-era, the action takes place on 3 continents. Steve is send to Mexico, Great Brittain, France, Swiss and Italy. That's why we see a lot of 'trains, planes and automobiles', even helicopters and boats!



    It's all about the kidnapping of Ambassadors (one is played by Leif Erickson from High Chaparral) and how to exchange them for gold. The subplot plays with ideas involving mind transplants and the value of the individual.



    One who doesn't loses his mind is Oscar Goldman, impressive, as he demonstates his nerves of steel while coldly pushing the boundaries in his will to sacrife a human life for the succes of the mission.



    The excellent music by Oliver Nelson is worth a special mention.(On the DVD-version we get only half a minute of the theme, sung by Dusty Springfield. What a shame!)



    The sum of it's parts does makes this a good episode.

    The hit-series can begin!moreless
