Six Million Dollar Man: Wine, Women And War, The (1973)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
This second movie recaps the first movie, only replacing one actor who portrayed Dr Rudy Wells and introducing a new character, Oscar Goldman. There's also a horrible 70s them song, sung by Dusty Springfield, that attempts to give this a James Bond-type feel.
When we see Steve Austin he's much more laid back than the angry victim of the first film. He's in Egypt, at a party. He's supposed to rendezvous with a ship, so he dives overboard and super-speeds it. Once there, he's to retrieve something from the ship's safe--but it's empty. When Oscar Goldman shows up he informs Steve that "You're special but you're not that special". Unlike the subsequent TV series, the two are very antagonistic here. Steve wants to rescue the woman who helped him with his mission in Egypt but he founds out she was killed. So he takes a vacation to the Bahamas where he meets a blonde woman on a plane. Once on the island, he keeps on seeing the Soviet flag. It turns out that he was set up by Oscar and an old friend to investigate an arms dealer who has a nuclear missile. There's a cool underground hideout where the bombs are stored--and it all ends with the bad guys biting the dust in a nuclear explosion.
I really did not like this movie. Continuity wise it fits in neither with the first film or the television series.
