Mercy Rule - DVD Review and Giveaway

I received DVD for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

Mercy Rule is a baseball adventure for the whole family, starring Kirk Cameron and his wife, Chelsea. Parents and kids alike will be inspired by the story of the Miller family as they learn life’s lessons of mercy, patience, sacrifice, legacy and trusting God. Co-starring Bas Rutten and comedian Tim Hawkins and written by bestselling author N.D. Wilson, Mercy Rule will teach your family what it means to be a "No Quit Family." The DVD also includes a family study guide for further discussion of the important messages in Mercy Rule.

My Review:

Kirk and Chelsea Cameron have put together a film that the whole family can enjoy. Kirk is known for his strong Christian values and this film points out the importance of morals, positive attitudes, and the love of family without making it feel like he's pushing his views down anyone's throats.

Although the plot is centered around Little League baseball, it also shows a strong family dialogue and tells of a father's business struggle. Cody, the son, must learn not to focus on how good his friend is in baseball and be envious, but rather focus on how good he, himself, can become. There seemed to be an overuse of slow motion action but it didn't deter from the overall dynamic. The performances seemed genuine and I liked how the characters related to each other.

Win It!

One person will win Mercy Rule on DVD.
