Good Concept, Poor Execution
24 October 2016 | by highlandermattSee all my reviews

The concept for this adaptation, namely re-imagining "The Pilgrim's Progress" in a contemporary setting, is intriguing and has the potential to be a good film. What was presumably the movie's selling point is actually its main weakness.

This isn't so much a modern pilgrim's progress, it's a modern pilgrim in a medieval/fantasy setting. If they had excelled in every other area of production I might cut them some slack but they simply did not compensate. So, how did they fail to execute the concept?

For one thing, clothing. I'm not sure which 21st century these people live in but no one in the 21st century that I live in and that I know go walking through the woods in dress khakis and a button down dress shirt, albeit un-tucked. Visuals, including wardrobe, are important aspects of any movie but especially here. If the point is "It's a modern pilgrim's progress" then the visuals have to tell me this. You can get a cheap pair of blue jeans at Wal- Mart for nine bucks. The budget was clearly not the issue, but a simple lack of thinking things through.

Another area is the awkward and failed attempt at blending modern and medieval. Go all the way- make the world of the journey match the character.

There are other complaints I have, but that's my main one. I'm still waiting for a good cinematic version of Bunyan's famous story.
