As a mom, I am always interested in films that will share the truth of God’s Word in a way that my children can understand way. When I first became aware of the film, “Unstoppable”, starring Kirk Cameron, I was intrigued, and excited to take my teenagers to see it. But unfortunately, the film was not going to be released in a theatre near me. So I was very thankful to have been given the opportunity to review this DVD with my family. (*This film is recommended for ages 12+.)
About the film.
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.
Overall, my family enjoyed this film. We were surprised that it was a documentary. I think we were expecting more of a movie, but it made sense that it was a documentary given the subject matter. The film displayed beautiful cinematography which my creative family could appreciate. I love the way that Kirk brought the truth of God’s love to light through the film. It will open your eyes and your heart to understand that even in the midst of heartache and suffering, there is a God of love who cares, who will never leave you, and has a bigger plan.
