I Can Only Imagine DVD Review

When I first saw promotions for the movie I CAN ONLY IMAGINE, I did not especially want to see it. It looked like a way to regain attention for a song by slandering the song writer and singer’s deceased father, and for personal reasons as I tend to think of it as a funeral song. Our family joined our youth group to see it, and I was pleasantly surprised. Because of that, I agreed to sharing a dvd review. My daughter called it “the type of movie that you want to tell other people about.” 

This movie is a telling of some of the life circumstances leading up to the creation of the chart topping song also called I Can Only Imagine by Bart Millard of Mercy Me. It is a story of his childhood and his pain, but also a story of forgiveness and redemption. The story steps back in time to the seventies, the time period of both the author’s childhood and my own. There are a few interesting period inclusions such as cassette tapes. 

Dennis Quaid and Trace Adkins star in this inspiring true story behind MercyMe’s beloved hit song. Running from a troubled home life and a broken relationship, Bart Millard (Finley) found escape in music. Hitting the road in a decrepit tour bus, Bart and his band MercyMeset out on an amazing journey none of them could have ever imagined, in this uplifting, music-filled movie that beautifully illustrates the power of forgiveness and God’s love.
The home entertainment release of I Can Only Imagine features over 3 hours of extras including 7 deleted scenes, 7 in-depth featurettes, an audio commentary, and more!
