you can suspend belief for 90 minutes and accept Paul
Hogan as an Angel, you'll enjoy this quirky, if not
sappy, film about an ex-con turned angel wannabe.
Hogan plays Terry Dean, a
thief who was just released from jail. He also happens
to be an electronics wizard (which comes in handy if
you're a high-tech thief).
Terry gets hit by a car while
trying to save a little girl (I guess some thieves have
hearts). While in the hospital he has a vision of
Charlton Heston, who tells him to let my people go (no,
that's another movie). Charlton, a.k.a. God, tells him
he's an angel and he must now redeem himself for his
So, to make things right, he
befriends Steve, a man in a wheelchair (Elias) and falls
in love with Steve's sister, all while saving the
children of the town and wrestling crocodiles (oops,
that's another movie, too).
