Some people might go for 4*** others maybe a 2**. I think a 3*** is about right in middle being fair to over all quality of the special effects included in the flick. It's not at a full 'R' rating status but most parents may find some of content not suitable depending on quality of training they wish to provide for their children. It's not a "Bad" movie it just doesn't have all that much to keep you from saying I've seen better before.
If you ever wondered how Peter Pan ended up in Neverland in the first place and what happened to him before he met Wendy, this movie has all the answers. Peter was a foster child to none other than, James Hook. He and his friends (the lost boys) were theives who would do jobs for Hook in exchange for a roof over their heads, food on the table and clothes on their backs. One job in particular led them to the orb that magically transported all of them, with the exception of Peter, into Neverland. Peter soon follows them to Neverland on a quest to save his friends. There he befriends a tribe of Indians who help him, he rescues his friends from the pirates who have captured them and he meets Tinker Belle who saves his life. He soon discovers who Hook really is and to what extent he would go to get what he wants from Peter.
Overall, I thorougly enjoyed this fun and fantasic tale. This prequel was an exciting and engaging adventure and the perfect addition to a beloved classic. The ending leaves it open for a sequel and I sure would love to see Syfy's take on the classic when Peter meets Wendy.
It does add a scientific explanation for how the characters get to neverlabd that's believable and adds to the story, the myth, the legend that is peternal pan. This story is more of an origin story of how Peter Pan and captain hook came to be that fits in with the other Peter Pan stories out there.
It is a long run time, but but we'll worth the time and money.
The beloved Disney version of the Peter Pan story is no more accurate to the original text than "Neverland", but since there was genuine potential here to illuminate the backstory, it's a shame this movie doesn't really deliver. It's an attractive production, with predictably good performances, especially by the children; but by the halfway point, I was getting bored.
Hook's the key character in this movie; I wish he'd been better drawn and that Mr. Ifans had delivered one of his more multi-dimensional typical performances. Do we love him or hate him? Do we care? Booyah.
