Storyline

Terry Dean is an electronics wizard and thief. After he is released from jail, he is hit by a car while saving a little girl life. While in the hospital, he dreams that God visits him and tells him he's an Angel, and must start doing good things to make up for his past life. Not believing it at first, he soon becomes convinced he must be an Angel. Not having any Angel powers yet, he must use his own experiences and talents to make good things happen.

Goofs

(at around 1 min) The priest is shown Terry's arrest record by a police officer. The record is for an arrest on January 12, 1986, and shows his date of birth as October 25, 1952, and his age as 37. Terry would have been 33 on that date in 1986, not 37. See more »

Completely taken by surprise.
22 February 2004 | by (Huntsville, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I happened upon this movie just channel surfing and was just floored. Great movie from start to finish. Elias Koteas gives an awesome performance that just shows once again how he is one of the most overlooked actors in Hollywood. But what really caught me was the story and dialogue. This movie was wonderfully written. I would've never guessed Hogan had it in him. Enjoyable movie and I strongly recommend it. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!
