To Save a Life (2009)

To save a life is a Christian film that I very much appreciated, the thing I really liked about this film is the focus which was evangelizing and making people feel welcome rather than judging them and turning them out into the street.

To save a life did a good job in the passing of its message, at the end of the film I myself started to think it through about the times I have made others feel unwelcomed, it made me rethink about the ministering that we get now a days, which are more focused on gain and personal triumph when they should be focused on loving our neighbor as ourselves, that is one reason I will rate this Christian movie high, it made me think about others.
When asked what the top commandments were Christ replied in Mark 12:30 - 31 "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these."
This movie preached both.

The movie is about Jake Taylor (Randy Wayne) who has everything going for him, a beautiful girl, a basketball champion and everyone loves him. Then, an old childhood friend, whom Jake used to be friends with, commits suicide.
Jake starts to wonder what he could've done to save his friend's life. He runs into a youth minister who tells him that he needs God.
While Jake struggles with the opinion and trying out the Christian life things start to change in his life but not for good, and it made Jake think of what to do, either what is best for him or for others.

The movie production is well done, although it is a low budget film and you will notice some mediocre acting here and there the movie is pleasant, and the producers did a good job in making the movie look more like an A-class movie, the main actor Randy Wayne was excellent in front of the camera and he very well represented and presented the film in a light I feel some will not be able to, and the best part is he offered to do the film for free.

After watching this Christian film my thought pattern changed and I felt like there is more I can do in the Christian race to make life better for others out there other than just living for myself alone.
Many Christian movies move you, others just feel like a waste of your time, it is only few that inspire you to act and this is one of the few.
I advise you get for yourself this DVD.
