      Nell Minow Movie Mom Rated: B Feb 18, 2012 Full Review Wesley Morris Boston Globe Rated: 1/4 Nov 24, 2011 Full Review Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel One of the biggest problems in most Christian genre movies is their lack of edge, a reluctance on the part of the filmmakers to show ugly reality. Rated: 1.5/4 Aug 23, 2010 Full Review Richard Propes It does accomplish its mission of presenting a heartfelt and well thought out story through the eyes of faith. Rated: 2.5/4.0 Sep 26, 2020 Full Review Sr. Rose Pacatte National Catholic Reporter Whether or not youth audiences will grasp the full human, religious, spiritual and moral landscape or implications of what [To Save a Life] is saying and what Jake is seeking, ample resources are available for reflection and reinforcement. Aug 11, 2017 Full Review Brian Orndorf Takes two solid hours to make its trite points on faith and personal salvation, growing more unbearable as it goes. Rated: D Aug 26, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews

      Ailisa M Great watch, good storyline, great casting. M a Muslim but I can relate to the movie. It's happening to all youth & parents of today. What I see, to these people God & religion is just an institution. The more one is modern, the further away one from God. When one is away from God, one is more susceptible to depression. Heavens forbid, na'uzubillahi min zallik Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/02/23 Full Review Audience Member BEAUTIFUL MESSAGE!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/27/22 Full Review Audience Member Poor camera work and low resolution, i would comment on the acting and story if this was not the biggest problem and why is the poster so high resolution. i would change this comment i can find a better quality copy Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Empty and a little racist.
