To Save a Life is a powerful Christian film about suicide, faith, and the power of one person to make a difference in the lives of many. Set in an urban high school where the jocks are high on the popularity scale and partying is commonplace, the film opens with several striking segments that include a surprisingly uncensored look at a teen culture ripe with underage drinking, bullying, and sexuality. Jake (Randy Wayne) is a popular basketball player who's at the heart of every party, but when he witnesses a childhood friend commit suicide in the halls of their school, he begins to reflect upon how he treated his friend in recent years. As he starts to grapple with his own sense of right versus wrong and struggles to define what his duty toward others might be, he meets a youth pastor who intrigues him despite his own disinterest in religion. As Jake's relationships with his parents and his girlfriend Amy become increasingly tumultuous and confusing, Pastor Chris (Joshua Weigel) serves as someone he can talk to, and his weekly youth group becomes a safe place where he can be himself without the fear of being judged. With Chris's help, Jake sets out on a journey of transformation and personal growth that will reveal God's unconditional love and Jake's power to make a difference in the lives of others. This film is both graphic in its demonstrations of immorality and openly preachy, traits that may render it uncomfortable viewing for many, but those very traits send a powerful message to modern teens. (Ages 13 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

We took our youth group to go see To Save a Life during its brief theatre run, and I was impressed at how well it was done! Interesting filming, great music, and meaningful and relevant story lines. It went over really well with the youth, too. They all enjoyed it, and many afterwards were already talking about buying it when it came out on video.

Probably my biggest criticism is that many of the characters look too old to be high schoolers (although that's true of a lot of shows about high schoolers), especially Jake's girlfriend. There are many issues dealt with that might not make it appropriate for, say, early junior high or younger (we had our junior highers sign a parent waiver) but they're all dealt with in a really positive way (as in, showing the consequences of vs. glorifying them as so many other movies/shows do).

Most importantly, the movie's message focuses on the importance of relationship, community and what it means to love others - and how much of an impact we really have on other people. I would absolutely recommend this movie and will be buying it - both for our youth group and for myself - when the DVD is released!

If you are the type of person (or family) who believe in isolating yourself (or your family) from the world around you, including the types of temptations, struggles, doubts, conflicts, situations, etc. that people in the church and in the world face every day, then I highly recommend that you NOT buy this film. This film addresses all of these things, touching on a broad spectrum of important topics like popularity, friendships, relationships, family and faith. Yes, watching this film will show the dark side of life and their possible consequences, including egocentricity (pride and elitism), falling into peer-pressure (alcohol and drug abuse), deception (deceiving oneself and others with lies), fear (of being found out for what they've done and who they are), brokenness (broken families, wrong priorities, sexual immorality), unrealistic demands / expectations, opposition (against Christianity, Christian values, et al.), guilt, shame, hopelessness, loneliness and suicide, etc. This film initially presents these things from the perspective of those who are in the world. However, this film does not leave viewers to drown in the sin, filth and stench of these things. There is hope.

There is a living hope. There is forgiveness, unconditional love, new life and a family in Christ that is real and freely available to a world dying in sin. This film is honest. Christians are by no means perfect; but being a new creation in Christ and being refined and grown by God through His Word, there is a change that happens in them (by the Holy Spirit). There is a mysterious, supernatural change that happens from the inside-out.

My students loved this movie! We were finishing a Relationships Unit and they found it quite realistic for what teens go through. They seemed captivated throughout the whole film. There is plenty of discussion that can arise after viewing it. Well worth a look!

Jake has all he could ever want, popularity, talent, good grades, girlfriend, and a bright future. The he witnesses the suicide of a friend and begins to ask, "Why? What could I have done?". His friends tell him to stop worrying, get on with is life, he didn't do anything. He answer is "Why didn't I?" His questions open his eyes to the hurt around him: people he has known for years, new people, family. Jake is forced to ask, and makes us ask: what can I do to save a life?

I highly recommend this well done exciting, thought provoking movie.

Format: DVD
Giving the impression this is a truly realistic (rather than "cheesy") depiction of youth culture, "To Save a Life" confuses its viewers. Instead of helping kids who would not normally be exposed to the the Truth of the reality of God, this movie instead exposes them to visual depictions of sexual intimacy, the youth drinking culture, and shocking violence. While these scenes may be tame compared to Hollywood's normal versions of these elements, they are totally unnecessary to the story (if you can make out the plot), except to make the movie somewhat more "acceptable" to today's youth.

The story uses caricatures of parents, Christians, and church leaders as the backdrop to present its skewed view of God's love. Right and wrong are blurred while absolute acceptance is the only true spirituality. The popularity of such things among Christians who should know better is probably the main reason why this film has had any popularity at all.

I really love this movie. It's a bit of a churchy movie but it doesn't throw it in your face which is good because I'm not a churchy person. It's real inspirational and just an overall good movie. Should be shown to high school kids everywhere.

I enjoyed this movie. A lot of real-life problems and situations and how to deal with them.

My only issue is that EVERYONE made the right choice (except for 1) in their situation = almost a little too pat.

But it's still a good movie.
