April 10, 2019
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.
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.
September 21, 2017
The real star is newcomer [Levi] Miller, who displays all the qualities one would expect from a boy hero.
July 11, 2016
Creating a gritty backstory for a 12-year-old can't have been easy, but director Joe Wright pulls it off with great aplomb, making it one of the most entertaining visits to Neverland so far.

Blackbeard shouts, 'You shall be rewarded with confectionary!' Kids love confectionary more than life. That doesn't mean it's good for them. 'Pan' is cinematic confectionary.
May 25, 2016
Jackman's Blackbeard is a high point.
March 1, 2016
Joe Wright creates feelings of pure joy and wonder in the audience as he takes our hand and flies us over the surreal landscape of a world that does not exist.
February 20, 2016
[Wright's] airy sensibility regarding the material melds with the arts-and-crafts production design to create an earnestly fun, brightly colored joyride.
December 15, 2015
A crazy, colourful adventure anchored by a delightfully devilish turn from Jackman.
December 6, 2015
Full of amazing effects and riding a fine, over-the-top performance by Hugh Jackman, "Pan" is sure to be a hit with the 12-14 crowd.
October 21, 2015
A deeply disappointing film from an incredibly talented filmmaker. It sometimes works. More often, it doesn't. It's mostly watchable, but it's a lot of fuss over not much.
October 18, 2015
Pan is fast-paced and visually impressive.
October 18, 2015
Although not without problems, 'Pan' is worth seeing because of its amazing special effects, impressive cinematography, and imaginative production design.
October 16, 2015
Pan does what it sets out to do, delivering comfortably on the action and spectacle fronts. Though it's not quite the film it could have been.
October 15, 2015
It never looks less than fabulous, even when director Joe Wright's high-flying ambitions overcrowd the senses and the sensational.
October 15, 2015
The overuse of CGI effects in Pan is exhausting and incomprehensible, even within the crazed logic of a fairytale.
October 15, 2015
A movie that works only for kids, but if you start to look more into it its flawed at best. [Full review in Spanish]
October 15, 2015
A prequel that takes a few liberties but retains the adventurous spirit of the classic tale. [Full review in Spanish]
October 15, 2015
A smart reinvention of a classic story. Go see this one with your family, your friends or on a date. [Full review in Spanish]
October 14, 2015
Joe Wright's version of Neverland is full of wonders, but he also adds some post-modern touches. [Full review in Spanish]
