Six Million Dollar Man Fall Of Man, The (2017) New
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
This continues the story of the original 1970's SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN television series. It's 1979, when Jimmy Carter was President and Iran has American hostages. In the opening, Steve jumps out an exploding plane and lands, with a lot of damage to his bionic limbs, which have to be replaced. While recovering in the government hospital he encounters another cyborg, Barney Hiller. They don't like each other. Later, Steve uncovers evidence of other OSI bionic experiments and becomes disillusioned with his organization. After being attacked by a group of Ninjas (yes, Ninjas) and defeats them he encounters Mick Gentle, the CEO of Arvo, a world-leading tech firm. He says he wants to use technology to better mankind and says that if Steve helps him that he'll be able to give him biological replacements for his bionic limbs. They're able to do this by growing new ones from his DNA. Steve becomes close to the head scientist but she turns out to be less than human and more dangerous than any Fembot.
It's an exciting story, maintaining the feel of the original show while also presenting a story that would be impossible to do, effects-wise, back then. If you're a SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN fan this is a must. Highly recommended.
