Our Score
A true story plucked from the tabloid headlines forms the basis of this plodding TV movie. In 1975, violent and nasty Dannion Brinkley (Eric Roberts) is struck dead by lightning, but comes back to life in the morgue. His near-death experience brings purpose to his life and he becomes an inspirational public speaker. Cheap production values and an uninspired performance by Roberts relegate this film to the don't-waste-your-time list. No amount of light can illuminate this murky turkey, but it might be of interest to fans of Touched by an Angel.

Summary

An American grocer is hit by lightning and suffers massive trauma, but undergoes a radical change in personality as he recovers, eventually becoming a gifted faith healer. Fact-based drama, starring Eric Roberts, Lynette Walden and Don Harvey.
