Peter Pan

7/10

    Like the schoolkids in this adventure, from the opening images to the closing credits, I do, I do, I do believe in fairy tales.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    tT never grow up is unspeakably sad, and this is the first Peter Pan where Peter's final flight seems not like a victory but an escape.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    Hogan whips up a high-energy family entertainment that fairly erases memory of the other filmed versions of Barrie's tale.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • John Patterson

    The movie belongs quite rightly to Wendy, the most enchanting little girl in English fiction, and to the untrained actress, Rachel Hurd-Wood, who plays her.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Michael Atkinson

    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.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Mr. Hogan understands both themes, and his filmmaking style is a perfect mixture of wide-eyed wonder and slightly melancholy sophistication.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Imbued with a greater degree of psychological darkness than before.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Mark Caro

    It's as if the movie itself has been sprinkled with fairy dust, and good thing, too: The world of Peter Pan is, at heart, so troublesome that it might as well also be enchanting.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    Hogan's version brings out the story's somber side, showing how the mischief of unworldly characters like Peter and Tinkerbell can do real damage, and how refusing to grow up is an awful idea if you actually try it.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Both enchantingly old-fashioned and daringly modern.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • David Hiltbrand

    Though the story dawdles at times, the visuals are splendid.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Carla Meyer

    A dazzling retelling of the J.M. Barrie tale, offers accomplished acting, splendid visuals, and in the role of the boy who won't grow up ... an actual boy.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    All Peter Pan lacks is a Peter Pan with any discernible personality, no matter that Jeremy Sumpter is the first actual, genetic boy to play the role on film.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Unlike last year's disastrous "Pinocchio" with Roberto Benigni, this movie proves worth the time, effort, and money to get the whole family to a theater.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Even at its most hyperactive, Peter Pan has a core of good and bad feeling that will hit home to kids and to adults with honest memories.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    It's gay in the old-fashioned sense, a giddy whirl for the senses, from chilly English drawing rooms to lush Neverland jungle. It's innocent in believing love banishes all ills, even physical ones, and inspires unthinkable heroism.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    A bright, whirling pinwheel of a movie that tosses around special effects like confetti, but the techno magic is graced with a touch of sensuality.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    It's tacky and beautiful, sometimes both at the same time. Occasionally flatfooted even as it sparkles, the film suffers when Hogan lets the scenery do the directing for him, but he's chosen a cast capable of shouldering the film's weight.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Though being magical is very much its intention, it never manages to cross the threshold that makes that happen in our hearts.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Hank Sartin

    It's a bad sign when you can't name or differentiate any of the Lost Boys.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Overall, though, this new Peter Pan does really soar.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mike Clark

    Peter is as adequate as the Harry Potter movies are, though you never sense in either case that kids are being bitten with the permanent movie-loving bug.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    Simultaneously groundbreaking and remarkably faithful to the classic play.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Chris Hewitt

    Tonally the film is never more than the sum of its parts, while Sumpter, although physically perfect, just isn’t charismatic enough as Peter.

    Empire Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    The film suffers from uneven acting, an over-reliance on production values and an uncertainty over how dangerous the children's adventures should be.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Despite a hint that Peter (Jeremy Sumpter) and Wendy (Rachel Hurd-Wood) might get it on, there's nothing to crow about.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    As far as production values go, this Peter Pan is a work of art. So why, then, does the movie feel so crushingly dull?

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Lush, loud and sparkling, and not nearly as innocent as you might imagine.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    If you can get past the ick factor inherent in these suddenly adulterized relationships –- and there’s really no way this film should have received a kid-friendly PG rating –- and latch on to the film’s wealth of metaphor, you’ll surely have something to discuss over coffee post-screening.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Jean Oppenheimer

    The film provides solid entertainment for kids but lacks any real sense of wonder and magic.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Handsome, respectable and well cast, elaborate production lacks the excitement and magic that would elevate the film to beloved status, and sheer abundance of CGI work weighs on it too heavily.

    Variety Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    Needs more than happy thoughts to get off the ground.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Lavishly produced -- overproduced, actually -- and persistently unexciting.
