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.



My Review:
Unstoppable is actually a DVD I saw in Family Christian Bookstore catalog as a 'pre buy' before Christmas and thought I'd put it on my Christmas list if it were out.  I had thoroughly enjoyed watching Monumental and was really interested to see what this new Kirk Cameron film was about.  So, when the opportunity arose to review it, I jumped at the chance.

I have to say, it was interesting to watch and see how Kirk answers why God allows bad things to happen.  I've heard the answer he finished with before, but for Kirk to actually go through the Bible and show where that answer comes from was new to me.  Unstoppable dramatically portrays several tragic stories in the Bible to ultimately show the viewers how it all worked into God's plan for something amazing. Kirk made me look at the Bible stories, and the Bible, in a way that I haven't quite seen it before.  Very neat!

I HIGHLY recommend watching Unstoppable.  If you do, please tell me what you thought of it!  And let me know if you think the theme song is as catchy as I think it is. ;-)
