Uniquely jacked into a ripe sense of antique-nursery Victoriana and buzzing with a pre-adolescent metaphoric charge, J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan is a primary text of modern culture, and P.J. Hogan's live-action rendition is the only one, screen or stage, to completely uncage this changeling and give it flight.
This film is a visual and creative triumph, sticking very closely to the original story with its beautiful music, sensational acting, assured direction, visual effects and set design. It also has lots of heart and is full of emotion. It is a classic, that is for sure. The best Peter Pan adaption that I have ever seen.
The live action version of Peter Pan isn't so bad. The actor playing Peter Pan does a nice job with the role, and the movie is somewhat magical. That being said, it didn't match the magic of the original. But then again, can anything?
I loved the old animated movie made by Disney, and when I heard about this movie, I couldn't wait to see it, but this turned out to be awful, I absolutely hated this movie, bad acting, unlikeable characters, and boring moments, this is one you could pass on watching.
