UNSTOPPABLE DVD review and giveaway

When I first heard about the film "Unstoppable" I was intrigued, but it was only shown in select theaters for a short amount of time so I didn't have a chance to see it.  I was really excited to get the chance to watch and review the DVD.

Inspired by the death of Kirk 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?"

I was so excited to watch this DVD, but I have to be honest and say I have mixed feelings about it.

Pros:  *It shares the gospel creation through the resurrection.
          *Kirk shares from his heart and out of his struggle with the question.

Cons:  *There are a few parts that seemed very weird to me.  I didn't like his reenactment of creation, the fall, and Cain killing Abel. I almost turned it off after these parts.
           *I also disagreed with a few of the things Kirk said in his interpretation of events in the Bible.  It may be just differences in opinion.

I have heard good things about this film so my dislikes could just be a matter of my own likes and dislikes.

Jen, I'd also agree that some areas were kinda wierd in how it was presented (some were kinda creepy). I saw it in the theater, but would like to have a dvd so that I could watch it a few more times and check for any "off" theology. I do remember a few spots where I thought, "I'll have to check that out with Steve" but Over all, I'd say that I really like the message of the film and that someone going through difficult times could benefit from watching it. It could also be a great "springboard" to conversation with those who need to know the Lord.
