The WYLDS - movie review

About the Movie:

The Wylds is an action-packed, adventure film inspired by the hugely popular classic, “The Pilgrim’s Progress” by John Bunyan. Filled with outrageous characters and exciting special effects, this thought-provoking allegory is a movie the whole family will enjoy.
Chris, a runaway child, lives with a group of misfits in a junkyard, stealing to survive. When a traveling preacher tells him that his father is alive and wants him to come home, Chris must leave his family of thieves and venture into the wilderness in search of his father and a better life.
Join Chris on an action-packed adventure as he outwits bandits, escapes swamp monsters, battles evil robots, and learns valuable lessons about choosing the right path in life.
A contemporary allegory inspired by John Bunyan’s “The Pilgrim’s Progress.”

My Thoughts:

I have to admit that when I saw the preview of this movie I thought it was going to be dumb. But I agreed to watch it anyway and I am really glad I did. This turned out to be a great movie. As I began to watch the movie, I realized that each character was a representation of something else. Chris is a christian trying to find his way back to the celestial city to find his Father. On the way, he finds out that there are people that will get in your way and try to stop you from finding that city. Luckily, Chris has Faith and Hope on his side and sees the truth.

This is a great movie for church groups to show the youth. It helps young people to see and learn how the devil works. He is sneaky, so we have to be prepared and focused and always remember that even when the road is bumpy, we always stay on the narrow road!

  1. I watched this film with my daughter (11) and some friends around the same age. We all found it to be an incredibly budget, poorly acted, badly scripted mess that didn't warrant the pricetag in the store. I would recommend avoiding this shambolic film at all costs.
