UNSTOPPABLE 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 was thrilled to be given an opportunity to review this movie. Yes, I was one of those 80's kids that grew up watching Kirk Cameron on "Growing Pains", but even more so, I have loved watching his work in Christian films and seeing how real he makes the Gospel. In this beautifully directed movie of Unstoppable, we follow his journey as he narrates through some difficult questions and situations. I feel the movie was straightforward and easy to understand. By creating a "drama" and story to watch, we are able to gain a clear understanding of the story of Creation, God's love for us and how even the most tragic circumstances can be used for good.
My son and I watched this together and he agreed it was amazing and followed the Bible closely. I found myself in tears a few times throughout the movie.
This is definitely a movie that is family friendly, and one every family should watch together. It can lead to some great conversations and Bible Study.

You can learn more about the movie on the official WebsiteFacebook and Twitter.

Now it's your turn for the chance to win a copy for your family!
