Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: But forget the lame performances and arch, preachy sentiment; the movie's sham hip-hop and spurious alternative music alone should keep teenagers away. Thank goodness. – Andy Webster, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Hints at becoming a thoughtful portrait of a teen's spiritual crisis, then abandons all narrative integrity to hit its church-mandated marks. – Andrew Barker, Variety, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: To Save a Life is about as subtle as this closing credit: "The producers would like to thank: GOD." – Melissa Anderson, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Miles ahead in terms of production values and an avoidance of overt proselytizing. It'll likely be an enormous hit with the evangelical communities at which it's targeted. That doesn't save it from being an utter failure outside that narrow context. – Ian Buckwalter, NPR, Jul 19, 2010

To Save A life is so much more than just a film. This is a story that almost any teenager can relate to. As to the critics who are against it... Well it's your loss. I have never seen a movie that has shown what our lives as teens really is. Welcome to the real world. These are the issues that High Schoolers struggle with, this IS our world. To Save A Life has pointed us directly at a helpline and a way out. Thank you so much for a movie that teens can honestly relate to.


This movie was sooo inspirational. It kind of upsets me that these critics hated it just because it was about giving your life to God. This movie has changed the way I look at school. No longer am i stuck in a place where im persecuted and hurt. Im in a place where I can show Gods love and incourage others to give their life to him as well. This is such a great movie. And I think that its amazing how this movie planted a seed in the hearts of those critics that hated it and it can do the same for any other person even if they arent a christian. God bless!


This movie is AMAZING!!! It shows anyone can make a difference. After watching this I looked in the mirror and asked what I want my life to be about. And I felt the power that I can make change. I have become a better person and Christian by watching this movie. I strongly recomend it! Even for anyone who isn't religious see for yourself how amazing it is and it deals with every possible teen situation. This movie is SO inspiring!!! There is a reason it's called "To Save A Life," it sure saved mine.
God Bless!!!
