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.

Impressive
12 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

As far as TV movies go, I was pretty impressed by this movie. I generally avoid them at all costs, but I caught the beginning and found myself hooked by the pretty interesting situation and ideas put forward. My only complaint was that it turned a bit predictable at the very end, although I was left guessing for a while if he was pulling a "Primal Fear". If it's on, I'd recommend you watch it.
