    This is a fun, good-hearted film about a nice guy who wants to make the world a better place by putting his own life on the line to help the average person. It's a nice message and the kind of exceptional individualism and social morality story you won't find in today's Hollywood. Although this film has the general "feel" of TV movie that isn't a bad thing. In fact, it would have made a nifty series. John Ritter is the perfect choice for the nice guy. Anne Archer on the other hand exudes a cold, bitchy, superiority-complex throughout and so is miscast. In the beginning she acts like she's laughing down at everybody in some private joke of hers and by story's end she's just as smirky and aloof as ever. Fortunately, she doesn't bring the movie down. The film has some genuinely touching moments toward the end that actually made me tear up. One of the best "super-hero" movies ever made because it's about people and compassion instead of CGI and violence. Bert Convy is also a treat to watch.

    Tired and trite story, the lack of a charismatic lead doesn't help. John Ritter is not a very good actor. Very predictable. Anne Archer is pretty good at least, but she doesn't have much material to work with.
