Keep calm and don't go see Pan, but cross your fingers that Levi Miller will get a role worthy of his talent.

Wright tends to ditch some of the more magical parts and elaborations on character...to give us a prequel that will be entertaining for the kids, but will leave adults wanting more.

Overall, all the well intention of the filmmakers involved is swallowed up by overwhelming action and CGI spectacle. It also went on for far too long at nearly 2-hours, but too short on humor and whimsy.

There is little the cast can do with the storyline and un-inspiring dialogue they have to work with.
February 7, 2019
Even magic becomes predictable. And despite the innumerable set pieces, that's where Pan fails to sparkle.
January 18, 2019
It's more annoying than enchanting.

Neverland is not a place that can be measured with dimensions (...) and mile markers. It is a place of pretend, its boundaries are permeable, its reality always in question.
November 9, 2018
However, the whimsical aspect of Pan was dubiously over-shadowed, over-produced yet curiously understated in its ability to convey a storytelling moment that did not seem laborious.
November 1, 2018
The screenplay is generic, the cast is poorly chosen, and despite his talent Joe Wright was just the wrong choice for this material.

While it works well as eye candy, and it would probably babysit a kid for two hours if necessary, it doesn't exactly serve as a winning advertisement for a Neverland vacation.
August 13, 2018
Full of various ideas and narrative threads built on top of others, none of which make any sense.
April 23, 2018
The film does not exactly fly by and some interpretations of the characters, chief among them Hook, may strike some as odd. Never mind; there are always the inventive visuals and Hugh Jackman in pure, pantomime baddie mode.

Seriously, how in the name of all that is holy do you come up with the idea to introduce Hugh Jackman's Blackbeard singing along to Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit with his mining workers?
October 26, 2017
Goodness, it's an un-magical affair, weighed down by flashy visual effects and a cumbersome, over-complicated story, and almost entirely devoid of anything resembling charm.

There isn't a single thing in Pan that works.
September 22, 2017
Pan never quite feels like this is what creator J.M. Barrie had in mind for his epic character.
September 21, 2017
The real star is newcomer [Levi] Miller, who displays all the qualities one would expect from a boy hero.
September 12, 2017
It's a shipwrecked extravaganza for an audience that doesn't exist.
August 16, 2017
For an origin story, this felt like a clump of loose ends and square pegs that never fit.
August 11, 2017
Because between the inadvertently hilarious and the downright offensive, Pan is a generic mold for a reboot that shares little with the original beyond a handful of proper nouns.
