...a lame attempt to manipulate the love that children and their parents have for a classic fairy tale character in the name of a quick buck.

If you've got a house full of tots -- don't worry, this will be on video long before they grow up and you can wait till then.

It doesn't do the original any particular dishonor, but neither does it exude any charm or personality.

Has an unappealing main character drifting through a dramatically inert script.

This follow-up seems so similar to the 1953 Disney classic that it makes one long for a geriatric Peter.

A tired re-tread of Disney's well-crafted 1953 cartoon version of "Peter Pan".
| Original Score: 2/4

If Disney wants to bastardize children's classics by imagining what happened (later), the least they could do is show a little ambition and imagination.

The scant running time -- just 64 minutes -- makes one wonder if "Peter Pan II: The Death of Tink" might have originally been planned for the home video market.

There is no doubt the movie is lovely to look at; it just hasn't much substance to it or much new to say.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

[A] stale retread of the '53 original.

The first fifteen minutes are so unremittingly dreary that it plays like Disney for depressive kids. Pass the kiddies' Prozac, I say . . .

The kids in the audience at the preview screening seemed bored, cheering the pratfalls but little else; their parents, wise folks that they are, read books.

This film looks like it was produced in 1954, shelved for 48 years, and repackaged for a 2002 audience.

This is Disney trying to pull the wool over our eyes, this time bringing their straight-to-video sequel to the big screen.

The holes in this film remain agape -- holes punched through by an inconsistent, meandering, and sometimes dry plot.
Full Review | Original Score: 62/100

Nice albeit retro animation but nothing of wit to appease the adults in the audience.
