The guy could control light and basically use it as a weapon by shooting the photons where he wanted. He was a good guy.

The only scene I really remember is he was trapped in a van and there was a lightning bug/firefly (I think) and thus he used the light (photons) to bust open the van door and escape. I think there was a woman with him in this scene.

  • Sorry-- one more detail. This was a made for TV very cheap movie. Thanks

  • OK... he was trapped in the van, by the bad guys? Who wanted him for his special gift?

I'm pretty sure this was "The Man with the Power". It was a TV movie intended as a pilot, but the series never got picked up. Can't find much on line, but I remember the premise was that he could use photons to move objects, so kind of a light-dependent telekinesis.
