“We can not choose hate. We have to choose each other.” - Steve Bellafiore Pacific) penned an amazing screenplay. The film is exceptionally produced on all fronts it even has a choice soundtrack, with songs that fit perfectly in the scenes they were used, and effectively add to the atmosphere of the movie. Pass The Light is a timely movie that deals with relevant issues, and promotes a message of kindness, love, faith, and acceptance. It is an outstanding feature with high production values, superb acting, and has a lot of heart. After watching it, you will undoubtedly leave feeling inspired. If I could give Pass The Light more than 5 stars, I would. I can safely say that I wouldn’t hesitate to watch this movie again, and more than once. I pray that Pass The Light receives the recognition it deserves. ADVERT Christian’s Take: In 1995 dc Talk released an album that would forever change Christian music. That album was Jesus Freak and it was a game changer. For years I have been waiting for a movie to come along that would be the game changer for the Christian movie industry. And I wouldn’t be surprised if Pass The Light was that movie. Pass The Light is undoubtedly a “Christian” movie. Throughout the movie, many of the characters pray, quote the Bible, and go to church. But all of this comes across in a very natural way and is not pushy or in your face. The main character in the movie, Steve, sets a good example for all Christians, as he seeks to live a life of faith, selflessness, thoughtfulness, kindness, and love. He displays his faith through action without expecting any credit or kudos, and stands up for what he believes in, regardless of the consequences. All of the actors seemed very comfortable in their respective roles. Pass The Light was very well cast all around; as a whole the cast portray their characters with believability and conviction. And though the movie stars mainly teenagers, it is suitable for adults too, because as I mentioned before, it deals with topics relevant to all age groups. Malcolm Goodwin (TV’s Breakout Kings) did a wonderful job behind the camera this time directing Pass The Light. And Victor Hawks (Broadway’s Les Miserables & South Over the years I have watched literally hundreds of Christian and faith-based movies and very rarely does one come across a movie of this caliber. Pass The Light is an outstanding movie. At first I thought, “oh no, not another youth movie!” But as the movie got going I knew that this was going to be something special. After watching Pass The Light and taking some time to think things through I would have to predict that Pass The Light is going to be the must see movie of the year. If I’m honest, it’s one of the best Christian movie’s ever made. CHRISTIAN REVIEW > 33
