MERCY RULE depicts a middle-class, suburban American family, the Millers. The father, John (Kirk Cameron), owns a scrapping and recycling business, Dante, started by his father. His business has been successful for many years while operating with honesty and integrity. However, a cunning lobbyist named Evan Trufant (James Bladon) pays John a visit one day in an attempt to undermine the business. He attacks John with a pro-environment agenda, accusing John’s business of recycling hazardous waste and toxic materials. John feels crushed by the liberal laws and policies that make his company’s death seem imminent. He draws strength from his wife, Maddie (Chelsea Cameron), who lovingly encourages him, and from his brother, Uncle Ben (Tim Hawkins), whose friendship likewise keeps him afloat.
Meanwhile, John’s son Cody (Jared Miller) is working diligently to succeed on his little league team, and dreams of being able to pitch for them. Cody pleads with his eccentric but familial coach (Bas Rutten) to be able to pitch, and eventually gets his chance.
MERCY RULE weaves together the story of John’s struggle to save his business and Cody’s struggles and triumph on his baseball team. It has a very strong Christian, moral worldview, with strong pro-capitalist elements. MERCY RULE is exemplary in terms of its content. It’s a very positive and uplifting movie.
MERCY RULE has no negative worldviews or elements. It contains no sex or nudity, no foul language, and no violence. While the content, writing, and acting are generally very good for a movie of MERCY RULE’s budget, the movie feels a little long. All in all, however, it has good entertainment value. MERCY RULE is exemplary in terms of its content. It has a strong Christian moral worldview, with strong pro-capitalist elements. It depicts a business owner who takes pride in his work and struggles to save his business from a radical pro-environmentalist agenda set against him. MERCY RULE is a very positive, uplifting movie with no objectionable content.
