DVD Verdict: With an all-star cast that has included Delta Burke, Randy Travis, John Schneider and even Academy Award winner Faye Dunaway, 'Touched By An Angel: The Spirit Of Liberty Moon' is a powerful feature-length TV event. Originally broadcast on May 17th, 1998 and then again the following week as a two-part episode, 'Touched By An Angel' once again proved that everybody was watching the show.
While the show has a certain degree of humor from episode to episode, the producers made the show meaningful to the problems of today's world, with each episode addressing a different and difficult topic in life's journey - ranging from gang problems to drugs to cancer to war to racism, with all giving proof in the end that God's intervention and love is always at hand for those who ask for it.
Well-known American Jazz singer and actor Della Reese is well-suited in the role of Supervisory Angel Tess, while Irish-born actor Roma Downey stars in her role as Angelic case worker Monica, who is often given a helping hand from Andrew, The Angel of Death, played consistently well by American actor John Dye.
Here in this stand-alone feature film, 'Touched By An Angel: The Spirit Of Liberty Moon, Vol. 4' this time, the angels are headed on a special assignment to Beijing. Monica has been hired by toy magnate Edward Tanner (Adrian Pasdar, 'Heroes') to close an Asian manufacturing deal, and employee Jean Chang (Bai Ling) reluctantly agrees to accompany them as a translator.
Even though Jean is risking her life by returning to her homeland, she's determined to take this opportunity to find Liberty moon, the young daughter she was forced to leave behind while protesting for democracy. Aided by angels Tess and Andrew (John Dye), Jean ultimately finds much more than she anticipated, while Edward unexpectedly discovers love he's never known before. Relive the uplifting message of inspiration and hope in this special TV episode, which can be purchased solely from Walmart.
