Absolutely astounding!!!
4 October 2008 | by joshfeverSee all my reviews

This movie has been a real life-changer, articulately written and directed amazingly which has contributed all the more to its wonderful script! For those of you who know John Bunyan would truly know the value of this novel he wrote and all the pain he put into beautifully upbraiding the gist of the whole story. Though this movie's just a part of the whole book and left many parts untouched, it has truly proved the point. To those you who really applaud Christian-based epics and so forth, The Pilgrim's Progress would indeed be of a great help in knowing more about the inherent truths about the like to a great depth.

I give it a 10/10 for the script and the performance of all the actors in this wonderful journey!!! Don't MISS IT!!
