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.

Solid performances all around
5 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

Well acted, well directed even though the story takes a few turns to make you think in certain directions. You really are kept guessing for much of the film as to what really happened to Jeremy Dillon. There's also some serious political statements underlying parts of this film.

Definitely a must-see.
