Editors Note
Note Advertised by its distributor as a successor to such theatrically released religious dramas as FACING THE GIANTS (2006) and FIREPROOF (2008) -- though it came from a completely different production team -- this inspirational saga recounts the story of Jake Taylor (Randy Wayne), a well-rounded, Middle American teen who seems to have everything going for him, his world in perfect balance. But when an unexpected tragedy strikes in the form of a childhood friend's death, Jake suddenly begins to question everything he had long taken for granted, and he's soon forced to make a decision that will permanently change his future.

Review The teen drama To Save a Life, nicely directed by Brian Baugh from a script by Jim Britts, manages to be appealing, poignant and inspiring in ways that are gentle and quite real. This smartly calibrated film also pulls off something rare by presenting religious commitment as something that's not only potentially healing and elevating, but also kind of cool. That's because the film's God-following teens are largely attractive, progressive types, self-aware kids dealing with a convincing array of social and personal issues...This is especially true of golden boy Jake Taylor (a winning Randy Wayne), a high school basketball star searching for redemption after Roger (Robert Bailey Jr.), the childhood pal he selfishly left behind, unexpectedly commits suicide. With the help of an affable youth pastor (Joshua Weigel) and an embracing group of new, churchgoing friends, Jake begins to deal with his guilt and break away from unproductive behaviors and relationships. Among the latter is longtime girlfriend Amy (Deja Kreutzberg), a mean girl-lite with some serious growing up to do...Though the movie takes too long to bring Jake's life-changing journey full circle and ties up its various strands with some predictable bows, this is a deftly acted, generally absorbing cautionary tale with wider allure than its faith-based label may imply.
