Next, Leah refuses to open her heart during her parents' divorce, and Luke is lured into playing music that doesn't glorify God. Dove approved (12+). Approx. 80 minutes.

This film is what is right with Christian Movies. Not every Christian is the same and this movie appears to be made for Christian teens who have a true desire to grow in their faith. I personally enjoyed watching it and there needs to be more movies like this made.

Review 2 for The Young Believers, DVD
This is why Christian movies have a bad rap
Date:November 16, 2012
The premise is good--four Christian teens avoiding the pitfalls of sin, but there's no getting around it: this movie is cheesy. The four actors look like college students yet they play freshman thru seniors in high school. And less of a drama, the DVD is more situations the four (or one of the four) have gotten themselves into, mostly because they are naive or clueless, not because they are Christians or not-Christians. I found the situations depicted to be way out there and not plausible. Delilah goes from vowing to maintain her purity and never being alone with a guy to suddenly deciding to go home with some totally creepy-looking guy who constantly wants to massage her, puts a drug in her drink, and tries to date-rape her. Leah sounds like she has a problem judging others. I never saw a clear conflict from the other characters except one of the guys who is about to graduate and has never heard of vocational school as an option--really?? Unless they've been cloistered, I don't think this is where most Christian teens are at today, and I think most would roll their eyes at this poorly acted film.

Review 3 for The Young Believers, DVD
A welcomed surprise
Date:August 26, 2012
One of the things I really liked about this film is that it appeals to lots of different teens in lots of different situations. You have Delilah who is committed to waiting to she is married before she has sex. You have Ryan who is committed to Christian music. If you have teens who are struggling with any of these issues you really need to get this film for them.
