Unstoppable Kirk Cameron Movie Review and Giveaway!
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 (). Together, Kirk and Chelsea live in California with their six children.

I am most definitely a Kirk Cameron fan. I love that we are starting to see more movies that have meaning, values and are centered around Christ. Cameron has clearly helped in this process and this movie really tries to hit home. This is not like Fireproof with some happy storyline, this is more of something I would watch in Bible study. Pretty much Kirk starts talking about how we always ask, "why would God let bad things happen?" So he goes back to creation and how God formed us and Adam and Eve and Noah and then looks at us today. I don't want to giveaway what his answer to this question is because that is the point of the movie but I agree with him.
While watching the film I really had no idea where he was going with these questions. I already had my answer in my head as to what I think about life in general but I figured he would say it differently. The show moves on a tad slow, but I loved some of the things he talks about and specifically pin points. My favorite part (which has nothing to do with the main topic) was when he was talking about man and woman (Adam and Eve) and how God created them and why. He brings up some great thoughts I had never considered.
I do encourage families to watch this but maybe not with young children as there is blood in a couple scenes dealing with Cain and Abel. Also, the other main part of the film is about a young boys funeral which was very sad to watch, though reality.
I do think Cameron achieves his point in the making of the film and I agree with most things he has to say.
I highly recommend.
