Unstoppable Review & Giveaway

Every time I hear about Kirk Cameron I still think of him as Mike Seaver from Growing Pains. Now that he is an adult he is still in front of the camera just with a different message. Unstoppable is Kirk's most recent movie and it sold 260,000 tickets on two week nights. Now that is impressive. There are people out there that want movies with a message, and not just for entertainment. 

You can win your own copy by leaving a comment on this post. 

Unstoppable was inspired by the death of Cameron's close friend who died of cancer at the age of 15. Kirk wants to help viewers better understand the question: "Where is God in the midst of tragedy and suffering?" Kirk goes all the way back to the beginning of time with Adam and Eve to investigate the origins of good and evil and how they impact our lives. 

This film is recommended for ages 12 and up because the story of Cain & Able is dramatized. I don't think this needed to be included. My kids know this story, but that is entirely different than watching it & I for one didn't want to see it. 

I was a little disappointed with this film. I think Kirk takes the long way around to try and answer his question. I also think he is off on some of his biblical doctrine.

ABOUT UNSTOPPABLE
Inspired by the death of Cameron’s close friend who succumbed to cancer at the age of 15, Kirk Cameron takes viewers on an inspiring and hope-filled visual journey to better understand the biggest doubt-raising question in faith: “Where is God in the midst of tragedy and suffering?”
Going back to the beginning—literally—Kirk investigates the origins of good and evil and how they impact our lives … and our eternities. UNSTOPPABLE will prompt audiences to consider the role that pain and suffering has in our lives, as they affirm their personal views on faith, and encourage conversation starters about God, suffering, and hope. 
In theaters for only two weeknights (Sept 24th and Oct 3th, 2013), UNSTOPPABLE: A Live Event with Kirk Cameron sold a staggering 260,000 tickets and reached a theatrical gross of over $3.2 million dollars. In just two nights this independent project sent a loud message – audiences want thought-provoking and meaningful entertainment.   
Kirk Cameron is best known for his memorable role as “Mike Seaver,” a cultural icon of the 80's, with his mullet hairstyle, cool glasses, and wisecracking comebacks. More recently he enjoyed much success with the No. 1 grossing inspirational film of 2008, Fireproof, and his recent documentary, Monumental. Kirk and his wife, Chelsea, were on-screen sweethearts during their Growing Pains years and are the founders of Camp Firefly, where terminally and seriously ill children and their families are provided an all-expense paid retreat (www.CampFirefly.com). Together, Kirk and Chelsea live in California with their six children.

Well I am never really watching movies. I never can sit still long enough. But I have a husband that I think would love this.
