Kirk is a great story-teller and this is the greatest story ever. Some scenes are a little intense (for kids anyway) and some of the stylized sequences are probably too long but all-in-all it was well worth the admission price. I think the current generation of "young people" could certainly gain a fresh perspective on the "why do bad things happen to good people" question by seeing this "movie".

I think I was looking for more hard core answers to those hard questions. As a Christian, the answer he gave via his movie were acceptable, but as a non-believer, it is difficult to understand his point of view.
As a non-believer, it is still too hard to understand that a good God would take your child away. I have three friends who lost their young sons...I have no words of comfort for them. For them, life didn't begin upon their sons death, theirs lives, as moms ended. How do I explain that a good God took their sons to begin or continue life.
I would like to see another Kirk Cameron movie, but I would like to see the movie geared towards non-believers.
The movie, I believe was more for adults than children. The cinematography and writing were creative and clear, but again, it was written for the believer.
Over all the movie was inspirational.
Thanks for your hard work.

There isn't much "acting" in this film as that is not its message. Kirk does an excellent job of taking some of the most salient stories in the Bible and quickly re-creating them in order to back up his comments with visuals. This film is about real life.
The message is for all people, and Kirk is to be commended for even making this film. Perhaps the funniest part is when Kirk brings his ideas for his film to the mainstream producers, etc.
If you have questions about why you are here, why things happen the way they do and/or are just searching for answers, try this film!

I thought the movie gave a clear answer to the question and I was glad I went. I thought it was long in getting to the point. The presentation of the Word was clear but the tone was flat and sorta unenthusiastic. I wish there were more details about the boy's life and how his family coped with the illness and his death. The death of any child is painful but I wasn't involved enough to be very emotional.
I admire Kirk Cameron for his work and hope he continues with this venue. Maybe a little more story telling and less preaching.
