Peter is a mischievous twelve-year old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak, but in the bleak London orphanage where he has lived his whole life those qualities do not exactly fly. Then one incredible night, Peter is whisked away from the orphanage and spirited off to a fantastical world of pirates, warriors and fairies called Neverland. There, he finds amazing adventures and fights life-or-death battles while trying to uncover the secret of his mother, who left him at the orphanage.

One of the very first lines in the movie is to forget everything from ever knew about Peter Pan because this was a story that has never been told. So with that in mind as I watched the movie, it opened my mind to enjoy it.

This movie, while featuring some great actors, just couldn't overcome its really terrible story line.

I didn't expect to like that movie but I really did.

This is more of an alternate universe version of Peter Pan than a prequel.
The plot shows Peter meeting most of the characters we are familiar with but ... Most of the traditional "bad guys" - Captain Hook etc. - are reimagined as good guys. We will need another story to explain how the good guy Hook becomes the bad guy we all know and love to hate. If you are only interested in Pan stories that don't contradict the Cannon as written by J. M. Barry then stay away. If you want a fun story inspired by the idea of Peter Pan but different you might enjoy this.

This was an interesting imagining of how Peter first came to Neverland--and became Peter Pan as we know him--as well as how he became connected with Captain Hook, Smee, Tinkerbell, and Tiger Lily. It was entertaining to have "aha" moments as the creators connected the dots with the familiar Peter Pan story. Those who enjoyed "A Knight's Tale" will likely enjoy the similar vibe of this one, complete with anachronistic musical interludes.

"Overall, the movie wasn’t as bad as I heard. I didn’t really read or watch any reviews so this isn’t influenced. I mean, it’s not great but it had potential. They should have taken more care in casting Tiger Lily, Hedlund should have let the Jackman impression go and do his own thing, the CGI was pretty bad..."

Yikes! IT was a total mess of a movie. Skip it!

Terrible movie. For about two minutes in the middle it looked like it was going to be an a capella musical, with Nirvana and Ramones songs, but then quickly changed direction yet again. Definitely left me wondering how they would know those songs, back in WWII, not to mention what they had to do with that scene at all. Though the singing was over, the bizarreness wasn't going anywhere. My husband and I were left scratching our heads through the entire movie, then even after it was finished: "Where did the two hours go? Can we get them back?"

I didn't realize that this is the alternate universe version of Peter Pan while I was watching it from the beginning. Before I saw this, I always thought this is a midquel between "Kensington Gardens" and the original source. After watching it, I'm like... yeah, what a good show. Although I found the pirates singing "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Blitzkrieg Bop" funny, I understand that to me, it looks more like a pro-new Disney version of it except... where's the canon in the characters and everything else?! It must've been thrown out of the window for some reason. Other than that, it was encouragingly recommended for Good Charlotte fans like me.

The trailers looked promising but this film was just terrible. The original Peter Pan story allowed us to imagine what's possible from believing and the value of staying young (at least at heart). In trying to provide a back story, however, this latest incarnation changes fairy dust from a magical gift of flight to hard-earned longevity medicine and makes Peter a half-fairy prince instead of someone who could have otherwise represented any one of us. Hook is merely a side-kick, preceded here by Blackbeard as the literary foil for Peter with fear of old age and a prophecy of doom to legitimize his villainy. There are just too many incongruous details, like Peter swatting Saturn and 2 anachronistic rock opera scenes.

I LOVED it. It was so different from all the other Peter Pan movies. The dude who played Hook tried to do an impression of a young Harrison Ford. pretty entertaining.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Tiger Lily shows Peter memories, which show Blackbeard and the other pirates in battle as dark cloud-like shapeless figures with glowing red eyes that may scare younger viewers. Also creepy looking "Never-Birds", which basically look like bug-eyed bird-shaped skeletons with a couple giant feathers stuck on.
