Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: What distinguishes this Peter Pan from other versions is its unsentimental insight into the terrors and delights of both childhood and growing up.
Rotten: Familiarity doesn't exactly breed contempt, yet despite the novelty of a real boy as Peter, the movie does engender a listless been-there / eaten-that reaction.
Fresh: A dazzling retelling of the J.M. Barrie tale.
Fresh: Has in the young British actress Rachel Hurd-Wood a Wendy for the ages.
If you liked Disney's version,you'll LOVE this one!!!
As my title all ready explained,if you like Disney's version,you'll LOVE this version. If you've ever seen "Hook" starring Robin Williams as Peter Pan,and you liked it,then I will guaranty you'll LOVE this one. Disney's version wasn't that impressive in my opinion,"Hook" was all right and sorta funny,and this one is truly magnificent. Why do I say magnificent?Here's the reasons: #1.Excellent animation. #2.Even better cast. #3.It stayed true to J.M.Barrie's classic. #4.It was definately funny,especially all the scenes with Tinkerbell in them. #5.Awesome action scenes,especially the Black Castle Fight and the last fight scene in the movie which takes place on Hook's ship(The Jolly Rodger).Not to mention the spectacular flying scenes!! #6.Excellent props on set,some of which were handmade like Hook's ship,the Never Land Forests' trees,and the Black Castle. #7.Excellent Computer Generated(C.G.) Grafics like Tinkerbell's wings and fairy dust,the backrounds for most of the flying and Never Land scenes,and Peter's Shadow. If you liked J.M.Barrie's classic,"Peter Pan",then you'll be sure to love this spectacular version of the classic story.
The definition of irony...
I've been looking to download this movie honestly for many weeks now and was dismayed to find it not on here. Then, when I go to make a request at the Apple store to add this movie, something told me to wait and make sure iTunes didn't have it and, lo and behold! Here it is! I love Jeremy Sumpter's Peter Pan (his is the best child Peter Pan, Robin Williams was the best adult), and Jason Isaacs as Captian Hook was genius. It definately has more edge than the Disney rendition, which is great, and I believe that it is more true to J.M Barrie's story. The reason for my four stars, though, is because I found some of the graphics a little too...cartoony. Like, the scene where they are laying on the clouds looking down at the Jolly Rodger. It may have been intentional that way, but it didn't sit too well with me. Also, while inspiring, I found the "I Do Believe in Fairies" scene to go on a bit too long to make it seem a bit ridiculous. Otherwise, the movie is sensational and a worthy addition, if not the best, to the Peter Pan legend.
Peter Pan is a story for the generations. Truly a classic, this movie offers a new perspective that is interesting, yet entertaining. I am so glad iTunes has added this to it's vast lists of movies within the library.
