As a mom, I’m very particular about what movies my children can and cannot see. When I heard about Unstoppable coming to theaters awhile back, I hoped and prayed the movie would find it’s way into our little town. Unfortunately, the closest showing was several hours away from us, so we didn’t make it. That’s why I am so excited to have the opportunity to review the movie on DVD.
In the Christian life, there’s one question that can make – or break – your faith. That question? “Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people?”
In Unstoppable, Kirk Cameron takes viewers on a visual journey to better understand that question, and he does so in a hope-filled, heart warming way.
The movie is inspired and centered around the death of Cameron’s close friend who passed away from cancer at the age of 15. Kirk takes us back to the beginning, literally back to Adam and Eve, to investigate the first acts of good and evil and how they affect our lives.
I’m not sure what I was expecting when I sat down to watch Unstoppable, but I was surprised by what I saw. Instead of just sitting down to watch a movie and switching my brain off, I got an hour of topics that opened the doors to long, Christ centered conversations with my children. There are no words to express how much I loved being able to talk openly, and at length, with my kids about what Christ did for us.
There was one scene in the movie that really, really got to me. Kirk had gone to some Hollywood big-wigs to discuss making a movie about Noah. As Kirk explained the history of Noah and the Ark to these execs, they laughed and came up with ways to change the “story.” It was so sad, and so heartbreaking. I couldn’t imagine not knowing the truth of Noah, or wanting to change the outcome of what happened. My heart immediately became heavy for those in the world that just don’t understand the truth our Bible holds.
Overall, I was very impressed with the movie. I loved that it opened the doors of conversation with my children. I loved that it made me think about what Christ did for us and deepened my faith a little more. I only wish there had been more use of Scripture in the movie. While the truths were in there, to me, I like to have Scriptural references so that I can dig a little more into my Bible. I did thoroughly enjoy the movie, though, and I think every family should have this DVD available in the home library.
