Storyline

A man (Quaid) is executed in the electric chair for having killed several women, but due to lightning striking a transformer at the moment of execution, he survives. As soon as he's well, however, they plan to electrocute him again, but now he has become a changed man and the female criminal Psychiatrist (Davidtz) attributes it to the electrocution wiping out certain brain cells. But more, she finds that the man is capable of psychic awareness of killings about to happen and although he is able to help the police, there is still public opinion that fights against any chance for clemency... they want him executed again.

Good cable movie
23 August 2000 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

For a made-for-cable TV movie, this one ranks as one of the better ones in terms of plot, characterization, acting and progress of the movie. You are never sure until the end if Jeremy Dillion is really good or just appears to be. I won't spoil the ending by telling you what happened, just suffice to say that throughout the movie, you will be wavering between good and bad, and you will not know until the end. The film builds up a good momentum towards the climax, and I thoroughly enjoyed this, which I might have missed have I not read the cable TV guide and saw this as the best pick of all.
