Peter is a mischievous twelve-year old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak, but in the bleak London orphanage where he has lived his whole life those qualities do not exactly fly. Then one incredible night, Peter is whisked away from the orphanage and spirited off to a fantastical world of pirates, warriors and fairies called Neverland. There, he finds amazing adventures and fights life-or-death battles while trying to uncover the secret of his mother, who left him at the orphanage.

This was an interesting imagining of how Peter first came to Neverland--and became Peter Pan as we know him--as well as how he became connected with Captain Hook, Smee, Tinkerbell, and Tiger Lily. It was entertaining to have "aha" moments as the creators connected the dots with the familiar Peter Pan story. Those who enjoyed "A Knight's Tale" will likely enjoy the similar vibe of this one, complete with anachronistic musical interludes.

"Overall, the movie wasn’t as bad as I heard. I didn’t really read or watch any reviews so this isn’t influenced. I mean, it’s not great but it had potential. They should have taken more care in casting Tiger Lily, Hedlund should have let the Jackman impression go and do his own thing, the CGI was pretty bad..."

Yikes! IT was a total mess of a movie. Skip it!

Terrible movie. For about two minutes in the middle it looked like it was going to be an a capella musical, with Nirvana and Ramones songs, but then quickly changed direction yet again. Definitely left me wondering how they would know those songs, back in WWII, not to mention what they had to do with that scene at all. Though the singing was over, the bizarreness wasn't going anywhere. My husband and I were left scratching our heads through the entire movie, then even after it was finished: "Where did the two hours go? Can we get them back?"

I didn't realize that this is the alternate universe version of Peter Pan while I was watching it from the beginning. Before I saw this, I always thought this is a midquel between "Kensington Gardens" and the original source. After watching it, I'm like... yeah, what a good show. Although I found the pirates singing "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Blitzkrieg Bop" funny, I understand that to me, it looks more like a pro-new Disney version of it except... where's the canon in the characters and everything else?! It must've been thrown out of the window for some reason. Other than that, it was encouragingly recommended for Good Charlotte fans like me.

The trailers looked promising but this film was just terrible. The original Peter Pan story allowed us to imagine what's possible from believing and the value of staying young (at least at heart). In trying to provide a back story, however, this latest incarnation changes fairy dust from a magical gift of flight to hard-earned longevity medicine and makes Peter a half-fairy prince instead of someone who could have otherwise represented any one of us. Hook is merely a side-kick, preceded here by Blackbeard as the literary foil for Peter with fear of old age and a prophecy of doom to legitimize his villainy. There are just too many incongruous details, like Peter swatting Saturn and 2 anachronistic rock opera scenes.

This is a rock opera version of Peter Pan with all the same characters but different storylines. I was expecting the original Peter Pan story so I was disappointed. I also hated the music. It was more hard rock than rock.

The movie Pan was a great movie! There was some parts in the movie where I got confused about where some of the characters arose from, or how the lines they said had anything to do with the movie... but overall it was a fantastic movie, and me, as well as my parents enjoyed it greatly. :)

Good special effects but the rest was not too good.

An imaginative attempt at Peter Pan's back story - before Captain Hook, Wendy and the lost boys. The visual effects are for the most part stunning. There are a few weird musical interludes and I didn't care for Garret Hedlund's portrayal of Hook, which comes off more like a combination of Indiana Jones and John Wayne. However, it's a fun movie to enjoy with the family.

I LOVED it. It was so different from all the other Peter Pan movies. The dude who played Hook tried to do an impression of a young Harrison Ford. pretty entertaining.

Peter is a young boy who lives at a dreary London orphanage. He and his friend Nibs begin attempting to investigate the mysterious disappearances of boys at night, when suddenly he, with many other orphans, are kidnapped by pirates in the middle of the night! They are taken to a place called Neverland to work as miners for a pirate named Blackbeard. After several incidents, Peter finds out that he is the son of a fairy and warrior, and a prophesied savior of fairies! He is thrown into an adventure of a lifetime... one that will pave the way for his worldwide fame as Peter Pan.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Tiger Lily shows Peter memories, which show Blackbeard and the other pirates in battle as dark cloud-like shapeless figures with glowing red eyes that may scare younger viewers. Also creepy looking "Never-Birds", which basically look like bug-eyed bird-shaped skeletons with a couple giant feathers stuck on.
