I assume this was made as a pilot for a TV-series, but it just as well could have come straight from the imagination of Stan Lee, and adapted by the writers of all those hyper-popular superhero film franchises! Stunt pilot and professional womanizer Chris Darrow works at a carnival with his good buddy Bill. Chris has always and inexplicably been immune to small electrical shocks, but when he gets struck by lightning one night, he miraculously survives that as well, and even awakes with the ability to discharge electricity from his fingertips! Chris' father, an army general, arranges for a hot military doctor to develop a device to keep his electric energy under control, while enemy spies try to kidnap him without really knowing his powers. "The Power Within" is nothing special, on the verge of very dull, even. Here we have a daredevil with electrical superpowers, yet there isn't any stunt work or fireworks going on. If whoever invented this concept sold it to Marvel, or any other production company, it probably would have become an exciting superhero flick. Now, it's easy to see why it didn't even work as a pilot. Good old John Llewellyn Moxy can't be blamed, for sure, his direction is as surefooted and reliable as always.
