Peter Pan (2003) - Rotten Tomatoes

Peter Pan (2003)



Critic Consensus: Solid if far from definitive, this version of Peter Pan is visually impressive, psychologically complex and faithful to its original source.

Movie Info

In stifling Edwardian London, Wendy Darling mesmerizes her brothers every night with bedtime tales of swordplay, swashbuckling and the fearsome Captain Hook. But the children become the heroes of an even greater story, when Peter Pan flies into their nursery one night and leads them over moonlit rooftops through a galaxy of stars and to the lush jungles of Neverland. Wendy and her brothers join Peter and the Lost Boys in an exhilarating life--free of grown-up rules--while also facing the inevitable showdown with Hook and his bloodthirsty pirates.more

Critic Reviews for Peter Pan

All Critics (141) | Top Critics (36)

These ingredients are digitally present and correct, but Hogan fails to inject much excitement into the many boisterous action sequences.

Top Critic

On the whole it's a pleasant thing, if hardly the definitive treatment of the source material.

Antagony & Ecstasy

It won't give Harry Potter a run for his money, but it beats the hell out of a Cannon & Ball panto in Skegness.

Empire Magazine

Live-action version keeps its thrill and charm.

Common Sense Media

Great performances, rollicking action and excitement, and a beautiful story kids will surely love...

Cinema Crazed

Siendo notorio el gusto de Hogan por las letras clįsicas de Peter Pan y Wendy, el director sabe educir el alma del libro para llevarla al celuloide.

Audience Reviews for Peter Pan


This is a different version than I am used to, but I liked it. I may be forced to read the book to determine what really happened. I have not quite figured out the significance of Wendy creating Captain Hook in the image of her father.

Certainly not the greatest graphics. Awkward filming. Decent acting. Incredibly cute. Yeah, I'd have my kids watch this if I had them!

The graphic quality is stunningly bad, enough to take one's attention away from the (admittedly mediocre) story. But Jeremy Sumpter is the kind of guy I would have been obsessed with had I actually seen this when it came out, so I'm giving it a little bit benefit of the doubt. Too bad he grew up into the weaselly JD McCoy of FNL fame.
