Writings about films, filmmaking and other obsessions by Mark Achtenberg
Six Million Dollar Man
I can't help but giggle at the memory of watching this as a kid. Still, it's a great idea for a feature film - a bionic man that is (sans Sasquatch).
As a note, slow motion and a fast soundtrack sell the sense of speed and power. Note the bizarre passage of time in this sequence - they meet during the day and finish fighting at night and then run back into the daylight. It's as if Ed Wood had directed it!
