With all the angel films that have been coming out, it was surprising to see an actually pretty good tv-version. Several recent actors have played angels over the past few years. John Travolta was "Michael," Denzel Washington was in "The Preacher's Wife," Cuba Gooding got a shot at it in "What Dreams May Come," and let's not forget Nicolas Cage in "City of Angels." Now we have Jonathan Frakes of the "Star Trek" fame in this. It's a good film. It certainly lives up to its standards. The plot is simple, but the cast is very good, and it rises some interesting ideas not tried before in angel films (but they have been used in "Ghost"....I won't give anything away).
If it comes back on or comes out to video, give it a shot. It's one of those "warm, fuzzy" movies, but if you're into the angel genre, you'll go nuts over it. Others will find it appealing and well-acted.
