To Save a Life

So, who’s seen it?  How was it?  Leave me your thoughts/review in the comments:

  1. Jeremiah S. McCarty says:

    My initial thoughts after watching the movie were as follows.

    1.) It wasn’t plagued with the poor acting and cheesy story lines we might see in other Christian movies such as “Facing the Giants” and “Fireproof”.

    2.) Great material that is quite relevant to High School students today.

    3.) Anyone could watch this, see the Christian message, but not feel like it was something that was being imposed upon them.

    I’m 26 and I can identify from my time in H.S. how these things went on, but I also watched this movie with a few H.S. kids that I spend time with outside of Youth for Christ gatherings, and afterward we had long conversations at a local Taco Bell.

    This movie brought out some of the underlying questions/feelings/concerns that H.S. folk have about the consequences of how we treat each other in order to be part of the “right crowd”.. how our choices to ignore people that are not “popular” and instead do the things that the “popular” people do (which in this movies case are not kind in the least) impact others.

    This movie caused my friends and I to seriously question the things we do in school that are not godly, yet want people to see us as Christians, whether it’s the things we say and do, or the things we just choose to ignore and say nothing about because of the cost to our own popularity.
