Monumental by Kirk Cameron
2012 Documentary Film
As a husband and father, Kirk Cameron’s concern for the failings of our society socially, spiritually, economically, and politically drove him to ask the question, “What’s wrong with America and how can we fix it?” He embarked on a quest to retrace our forefathers steps during the founding of America to discover what made the United States such an exceptional country. What he discovered would astonish you: a monument erected in Plymouth, Massachusetts, displaying the governing principles of which our nation was founded, principles that are not being taught in public schools today, but once were. In the end he comes to realize that restoring our country doesn’t start in the Oval Office, but in our own families and at our own dinner tables. This decision to act is monumental and the change we seek must come from the bottom up.
I honestly wondered whether this production would be worth viewing and if it would leave Mr. Cameron in a susceptible position to be negatively scrutinized by some in the public arena. But I have to say, this film lives up to its title. It was a large undertaking to create a documentary of this kind and I am pleased to say that I found Cameron’s film riveting, educational, and entertaining. The editing was phenomenal, the sound at par with the best, and the collaborators and experts intriguing. If you haven’t seen this, you’ve missed out, watch it now. You will be refreshed and moved to excitement as you walk alongside Kirk, discover some important historical facts, and what your real national treasure is. Kirk created a monumental film that will find it’s own place in history.
