Peter Pan


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.

Critic Reviews for Peter Pan

All Critics (145) | Top Critics (37)

Hogan has managed to remain faithful to Barrie's Edwardian spirit without making him feel musty.

Top Critic

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

Top Critic

A dazzling retelling of the J.M. Barrie tale.

Dec 26, 2003 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

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

Dec 25, 2003

In this incarnation, Peter is imbued with a greater degree of psychological darkness than before.

Dec 25, 2003

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.

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.

P.J. Hogan's Peter Pan gets props for staying very true to the original J.M. Barrie source material. That is pretty much all I can acknowledge the film for. Other than that, the actors are annoying, the visuals are a tad overdone, and lastly, its forgettable. For the true timeless classic, watch the Disney version. For the true Peter Pan story, read the original novel. So, Hook gets a rotten rating and this gets fresh??? This one just didn't grow on me.
