Why Are There So Many Terrible Christian Made Films?
11 November 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The Pilgrim's Progress is the greates English Alegory and one of the greatest works in the English Language. Why could they / did they not strive to make this film stand up to par with Bunyan's classic masterpiece. Just because the film was obviously low budget doesn't mean they have to have low imagination also. But, it was a Ken Anderson Production and that means don't watch it if you you want to live to see the next day. True, Liam Nesson is in it. As a matter of fact this was his first movie debut. Take in mind, that I love The Pilgrim's Progress, and I believe that it can undoubtedly be made into an awesome movie, but I would advise anyone, "Stay away from this version."
