I like Kirk Cameron. The media and liberals hate him, so to me that says he must be doing something right. They don't hate the pseudo-Christians that abound in Hollywood, but they hate Kirk. I am interested in anything he does, so I was excited to get the opportunity to review this new film he is coming out with for Christmas. I signed up, and was sent the link by email to view it. Last night, I pulled it up on my computer, and sat back to enjoy it.
It starts out with Kirk Cameron talking about the war on Christmas, as he sits in front of a Christmas tree and fireplace, then it launches into the film.
I'll be honest. It wasn't what I was expecting. I was expecting a fun-filled movie about Christmas. It was interesting, and I enjoyed it, but it just wasn't what I expected. Not that it was bad.
The movie starts out with a Christmas party at the sister of the character played by Kirk Cameron. His brother-in-law has become very anti-Christmas because of the commercialization and materialism and feels no one truly keeps Christmas the way it should be kept. Kirk's character hunts him down and gives him a lesson on the symbols of Christmas and how they relate to the real Christmas story.
I'll admit, at first I thought it was stretching it a bit, but then the ideas grew on me, and I ended up thinking of Christmas in a new way, and the symbols of Christmas. There is also history given on St. Nicholas, and I learned some new things about him that I had never heard.
The movie bounces back and forth between a couple of characters at the party, and the Christmas lesson. I kind of missed the point on the one conversation, but it did make it entertaining.
I thought the movie was going to be about the war on Christmas by atheists and liberals, and that was mentioned, but it is mostly about seeing the symbols of Christmas in a new way and truly celebrating Christmas as Christians should - better than anyone else.
I enjoyed watching Saving Christmas and would recommend it to anyone who wants to revive their Christmas spirit and get a different look at Christmas.
