Our Score
In this umpteenth adaptation of JM Barrie's children's masterpiece, Peter Pan and Wendy flirt away as though there is no tomorrow in Neverland. In searching for a mother, Peter (Jeremy Sumpter) very nearly ends up with a wife. It's no wonder that fairy Tinker Bell (called "Tink" throughout and played with wonderful spirit by Ludivine Sagnier) occasionally throws a tantrum or two. Peter and Wendy (Rachel Hurd-Wood) trifle alarmingly, but convincingly, with each other's hearts as they tussle with Jason Isaacs's terrifying Captain Hook. Australian director/screenwriter PJ Hogan (My Best Friend's Wedding, Muriel's Wedding) gives this spin on the boy who wouldn't grow up a startlingly eye-catching makeover and, despite Sumpter's American accent, manages to retain the essential Englishness of the source text.

Summary

The adventures of the boy who never grows old, as he whisks Wendy Darling and her brothers away to the magical world of Neverland - where they come face to face with fearsome Captain Hook. Adaptation of JM Barrie's fantasy novel, starring Jeremy Sumpter, Rachel Hurd-Wood, Jason Isaacs and Lynn Redgrave.
