Otherwise this movie deserves 5 stars. Jason Isaacs and Jeremy Sumpter are incredible actors, the emotions are really there! In addition to the beautiful Olivia Williams who plays Mrs Darling, all the actors were great. Most of all however, we were really amazed that Jeremy Sumpter, a child actor at 12/13 years old during production, had learned to fight with a sword, fly with a harness and make it look real, do 98% of the stunts himself and acted in such a convincing way that you really believed that he was the real Peter Pan. There is so much depth to this Peter Pan, the boy that would not grow up, that in some scenes, Jeremy really tugs at your heart-strings. Credit should go to the casting director for finding such a gifted boy. In my view he is forever immortalized as the real Peter Pan.
This movie is not like all the bland versions of Peter Pan. It is definitely the best adaptation of the original book by J.M. Barrie that I have ever seen, I just wish that I would have seen it on the silver screen in 2003. For parents out there, it's not just another kiddy movie, there are dark scenes, quite a bit of humor and unfortunately a bitter-sweet ending. Both children and adults will enjoy this movie. My kids watched it at least a dozen times on DVD and of course we watched it recently in this Blu-Ray version.
Nevertheless, I recommend that you buy the DVD Widescreen version instead, I guarantee that you will get more for your money. All the bonus features on the DVD version are really good. The Bonus features will give you the opportunity to further appreciate the hard work and dedication that went into the making of this wonderous movie.
The cast is absolutely amazing and I don't think I could have seen better people playing Peter or Wendy, even though they are grown up now it's amazing to see what they could do at such a young age (13-14).
