Storyline

A mean, loud-mouthed town bully is talking on the phone one night during a lightning storm when, in a freak occurrence, a bolt of lightning strikes a telephone pole, travels down the phone wires and hits him. He is declared clinically dead, but miraculously recovers shortly thereafter--with a completely new personality and, he claims, the ability to communicate with the dead.

Eric Roberts unique performance in a unique movie ...................
27 August 2011 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

There are not many movies out there featuring near death experiences. These back from the brink persons, almost all seem like tormented individuals. Eric Roberts search for meaning to his new found revelations, leads to personal disaster, and opens up more doors than it closes. The acting by Roberts is among his finest, and the life changing storyline builds to an acceptable open ended climax. The elusive Lynette Walden is a standout playing Roberts loving, disillusioned wife. If believing in miracles films are on your short list of favorites, then "Saved by the Light" is a must see. Others may find the movie somewhat redundant and draggy. - MERK
