The trailer narrated as it is, you can tell the distributors were hoping to to bring in some of the audience of "The Six Million Dollar Man". As a kid of 13 years, I assumed the makers of the films were trying to cash in on Steve Austin's popularity. It never occurred that was just a ploy by distributors (who had nothing to do with the making of the movie) trying to "sell" it to American movie goers. As a kid, I just couldn't figure how this was anything like 6MDM.

I didn't see it until this last decade when some friends bought it as a reduced price bin VHS. I was not yet familiar with "Mystery Science Theater 3000", but in retrospect, my friends and I "riffed" that flick to shreds! (I'm sure we were nowhere near as witty as Joel, Mike and the 'Bots, but I do know I laughed until I nearly puked!)
