Pilgrim's Progress - the movie

I'm not sure that any movie can do justice to John Bunyan's literary masterpiece, Pilgrim's Progress. However, a recent movie telling this story is worth watching. Our family enjoyed watching Pilgrim's Progress - Journey to Heaven. Because the film has a relatively low budget, the special effects are not Hollywood quality. Despite this, the movie is still well-made, well-acted, and faithful to Bunyan's wonderful allegory of the Christian life. Below is a short video that tells more about the film. I encourage you to watch it.

I chuckled at "amazing special effects"...

it looks like it would be a fun movie to watch though... hopefully the acting isn't as bad as it looks.

I agree. Those special effects were anything but amazing. However, it is still worth watching, basically because it sticks pretty well to the story line of Bunyan's classic. They did have to leave some sections out, otherwise the movie would have been 5 or 6 hours long.
