Peter Pan Reviews

This "Peter Pan" is not a story, but a video game. Kids like video games, it's true, but they do not long to live inside them.

The latest version of J.M. Barrie's book hits the screen... alas, all we got was a shadow of the tale.

The film suffers from uneven acting, an over-reliance on production values and an uncertainty over how dangerous the children's adventures should be.

..."Peter Pan" tale is more a youthful love story than action/adventure flick with a disturbingly sensually full-lipped Wendy saving a hidden kiss for macho, swaggering Peter.

Bring back Mary Martin and her spot-the-wires flying routine.

It ends up being the grown-up version of a children's story, and may have trouble finding an audience.

What it is lacking is any kind of wonder. True fairy dust is in decidedly short supply and without it, the movie sinks like a cannonball.

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.

With only a few exceptions, the performances (and the script) range between dull and mediocre.

Faithful to its source but rather unremarkable as a movie experience.

The film is a wash, first and foremost for Hogan and cinematographer Donald McAlpine's choice to shoot entire sequences in garish singular colors.

There's absolutely nothing innocent about this Peter Pan; he's a leering and repulsive twerp.

PJ Hogan's lazy, logy Peter Pan states that not growing up is a tragedy, but presents neither evidence nor arguments.

Peter and Wendy's chemistry do not compensate for the thin story.

Hogan doesn't know when to start and stop playing down to his audience of children, and so he turns the immature goofiness on and off without warning.

Apparently, the filmmakers felt characterization would only get in the way of the special effects.

Hogan's adapation is likely faithful to a fault: it goes through the motions of the story without seeming to have any reason for telling it.

It's not colourful, it's not fun, it's just a gaudy mess of bad aesthetic choices and cruddy CGI.

What's next? Oklahoma! without the musical numbers? What does Hogan's version offer in place of songs? A sex-charged fairy tale.
