Movie Reviews

A Timeless Classic!
T. Fruge | Lancaster, CA | 10/30/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you've never read John Bunyan's timeless classic "Pilgrim's Progress"... you should. And THEN view this well done translation of it to film. I say this because like all movies based on a book, it cannot possibly convey it fully.
It's also a collector's item having the now famous Liam Neeson playing the starring role of "Pilgrim" in it. And here, as in his role in "Krull"; he shows all the usual rough edges of an actor yet new to the business, yet convincing enough to be a "diamond in the rough".
Fast action movie fans will find it a bit dull and tedious for their tastes. Yet considering the venerability of the subject matter, should not readily dismiss it either.
For Parents: This is definitely a "Must Own", being both morally instructive, and cinematically entertaining."
Filled with Truth
David Carson | Willow Spring, NC United States | 04/23/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first saw this film version of the famous allegory when it first came out in the late '70s and had wanted to see it again. I was surprised upon buying the DVD last year to learn that Liam Neeson, now famous, was one of the stars. Though nothing replaces the reading of the book, this was a well-made film representation for the techniques available at the time. The scene of what happens to Pilgrim's burden as he approaches the Cross is worth the price of the DVD."
Does not follow the book

(2 out of 5 stars)

"I was disapointed that this DVD did not follow the book as closely as it could have. The end was different from the book."
Not what I thought.

"I got this movie after reading the reviews here. I was very disappointed. I'm giving this two stars only because of the message it conveys. If not for that I would give it 1 star. I know this was done in the 70's, but it seemed to me that it was rushed. Too much of the book was missed. I felt the chanting was rather distracting, espically when the movie was beginning to peak. I thought the animated version (even though it is slow) was much better. I really hope that someone does another movie and or even a mini series, that way they can touch on the whole book."
