"Turn Around: Based on the Story of Alma the Younger." This movie has been repackaged and marketed to Christians when it's originally a Mormon movie. No mention of Jesus or 'born again' Salvation experience.
I thank God that I didn't buy this dvd that I watch w/ my mom b/c this isn't a christian movie. This movie did not give Glory to the Power of God. HELLO, he died & came back to life! The least thing the filmmakers could have done is show that he went to HELL & now giving his testnomony of what he experience in the eternal pit so others could surrender to Jesus as Lord & Savior! Instead the guy came back that he could live a "morally/good life". When Sara couldn't play well, not once did someone came up to her & pray for God's help. GOD was not given HONOR & GLORY in this movie at all. A true christian movies I'd recomended are Pamela's Prayer, Facing the Giants, The Climb, Fireproof, The Secret of Johnthatn Sperry, No Greater Love, Time Changer, End of Harvest, etc. I give this DVD a 2 only b/c it's a nice family movie & that all it is.
When I read the little description, I thought it would be pretty good. But then when I watched the trailer, it seemed a little cheesy and typical high school drama-ish. But when I watched it, it was better than I expected. Its not like one of those "oh wow! I gotta tell everyone about this!!!" but it was a good family movie that everyone can benefit from.
Very good especially for the target group intended

I use this video as a supplement to a victim awareness class I teach in a local prison. It is powerful and effective in allowing people to see that their actions have long reaching consequences and that change is possible.
This movie did not gave Glory to the Power of God...the guy had a near death experience and decides to change his life and be "good". Many people go through this. I disliked it even more when Sara could not make a good play, I was expecting someone to tell her, "Pray about it and ask God for help" no one ever did, so dissapointed. JESUS was not given HONOR and GLORY :'(
