While it's fantastic on the big screen, it's still fantastic on the small screen in your living room. Most people know the story-- Peter Pan is a boy who refuses to grow up. He meets Wendy, Michael, and John Darling, whisks them away to the magical Neverland and have rip-roaring adventures together. Never did I think a film could capture the book so well. This movie does exactly that, and nothing could be better.
It's colorful, it beautiful, and the flying looks real. They're not on strings, Peter Pan is not played by a girl (Thank God!), and Tinkerbell is not just a flashlight on a wall. Peter is played by the marvelous Jeremy Sumpter, who is also in the film "Frailty." He proves himself in both movies. He's the most amazing Pan you'll ever have the pleasure to see. Newcomer Rachel Hurd-Wood plays Wendy. She brings new life to the character of Wendy. And then there is Jason Isaacs. He plays both Captain Hook and Mr. Darling, creating a Hook that is more memorable than ever before.
The DVD features are alright, I bought the movie just for the movie, not the features. The features give insight on the making of the film, which is interesting, but some of them are so short (less than two minutes on one!) that I wonder why they were even included on the DVD.
Definitely get this movie. It's perfectly for all ages, all types. It doesn't matter who you are-- the theme and meaning of Peter Pan is something that we can all relate to.Read more ›
Peter Pan is a GREAT movie of all ages and something the whole family can enjoy. This is why I gave it 5 stars, you can't rate it untill you see the Magic in this movie.
