Critic Consensus: A prequel to Peter Pan, Neverland has some decent action scenes but lacks the character development and sense of wonder to make its fantastical elements truly resonate.
Tv Season Info
It's packed with action, much of it violent, and even more packed with special effects.
Syfy's miniseries Neverland doesn't end up having much of a point, but the cribbed elements from other popular fantasy TV series, movies, and books are mixed together in an entertaining way, which makes the enterprise definitely watchable.
If you yearn for the days of high-quality, big-budget, fantasy miniseries, skip Syfy's Neverland.
As Neverland unfortunately shows throughout, when you spend all your time and energy explaining how the trick works, there's precious little left to entertain the audience.
