Movie Summary

P.J. Hogan
Peter Pan is a 2003 family fantasy film directed by P.J. Hogan. In the film, Wendy Darling (Rachel Hurd-Wood) loves to read her little brothers, John (Harry Newell), and Michael (Freddie Popplewell), fairy tales about swashbuckling evil pirates and the heroes that fight them. One night the children are treated to a visit by Peter Pan (Jeremy Stuper), a magical boy who lives in Never Never Land with a group of boys, the lost boys, and has an ongoing war with the evil Captain Hook (Jason Isaacs). Peter Pan tells the children all about his life with no rules and no grown ups and the children beg Peter to take them to Never Never Land. While in Never Never Land, the children meet Tink (Ludivine Sagnier), a magical fairy, and many other characters that inhabit the magical land. They also get to see Captain Hook and his pirate gang in action. Initially, the children embraced a place that had no restraints, but soon they miss their lives at home. Will the children permanently live in Never Never Land or will they return home to their parents and their rules?moreless


Metacritic Score

  • 80

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    Mr. Hogan understands both themes, and his filmmaking style is a perfect mixture of wide-eyed wonder and slightly melancholy sophistication.

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    Though being magical is very much its intention, it never manages to cross the threshold that makes that happen in our hearts.

  • 50

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    Handsome, respectable and well cast, elaborate production lacks the excitement and magic that would elevate the film to beloved status, and sheer abundance of CGI work weighs on it...
