The cinematography is beautiful, the acting superb and the music is inspiring. Technical effects and costumes are very well done. Many scenes are powerfully moving.
I highly recommend this encouraging movie. I've ordered extra copies for friends and family.

First of all, though the problems with the movie are few, I want to address them for the sake of giving an accurate review. The special effects are good (they don't look like a cheesy Saturday morning cartoon), but they are more like what you would see on a decent TV show than comparing with a Hollywood Blockbuster. That being said, the effects were well done. Also, as the director Danny Carrales correctly pointed out in a brief message on the DVD, not everything that is in the book has made it to the film. Like other movie adaptations, this one is only on Christian's story and does not address Christiana's travels (which was about half of John Bunyan's book), and some of Christian's story is shortened or ommited.
All that being said, the message of John Bunyan is faithfully conveyed in a powerful way. Granted that it takes a couple of minutes to get used to seeing the modern settings and clothing, but I don't see this a problem because Bunyan was writing to his contemporary audience, so making the message seem applicable to our lives is keeping with the spirit of the book. The acting was superb, and really served to help the viewer relate to the characters. The dialogue was strait and to the point and well-executed without feeling awkward. The cinematography was excelent in serving to ground the veiwer in place and mood. But what I thought the best part of the movie was is how it constantly hammers the Gospel Message from the start all the way through to the very end.Read more ›
