Critical reception

Allmovie noted a "breezy British action comedy...No mere programmer, The Lightning Conductor is exceptionally well cast, with such reliables as John Lodge, Sally Gray, Ernst Thesiger and Steven Geray going through their usual expert paces."[2] and TV Guide called it "a suspenseful comedy with some good characterizations."[3]
