Unstoppable is Unbelievable...Horrible...A Must See!

Most of the people viewing "Unstoppable" will undoubtedly be Christian. Well...I If I was a Christian, I would have seriously doubt in my belief, after viewing Kirk Cameron's (special kind of crazy) "documentary." And I'd probably be agnostic or atheist, within a year. That said...It's rare to find something so horrible, that it's beautiful. Well Done Kir You crazy S.O.B.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

As a film, Unstoppable has little to recommend it. This film is entirely based upon Kirk Cameron's fervent viewpoint; Cameron accepts the Bible as a literal document and expounds upon its teachings to include his own evangelical interpretations of both God's message and His motives. Most likely, its relevance to audiences will depend upon already-existing attitudes and beliefs. Cameron's passion and charisma can't offset the less-than-artful Garden of Eden sequences, the brutal and poorly executed killing of Cain, the clumsy editing throughout, and one particularly inept scene set in an "imagined" business meeting. It's all well intended but amateurish and assembled without subtlety or grace.
