From Amazon.co.uk

Fine casting, genuinely special effects and a keen combination of whimsy and danger make this Peter Pan the one to beat among all previous adaptations of JM Barrie's classic children's fantasy. The technical advances of CGI make the magic of Barrie's tale come alive and the spectacular effects combined with luminous live action create an action-packed Neverland that's both believable and breathtakingly artificial, like a Maxfield Parrish landscape springing vividly to life before your eyes.

More importantly, however, is the fact that director PJ Hogan (whose films include Muriel's Wedding and My Best Friend's Wedding) has taken care to develop a substantial, pre-adolescent affection between the boyish sprite Peter (Jeremy Sumpter) and resourceful London girl Wendy, played by Rachel Hurd-Wood in a marvellous screen debut. This emotional bond--and the mixed blessing of Peter's eternal childhood--is what gives Hogan's Peter Pan it's rich emotional subtext, added to an already bountiful adventure that's equal parts delightful and menacing, especially when the villainous pirate Captain Hook (Jason Isaacs, doubling as Wendy's father) threatens to spoil the fun. With a mischievously dazzling Tinker Bell (played by Swimming Pool's Ludivine Sagnier) and no expense spared on its lavish Australian production, this Peter Pan gets it entirely right by presenting childhood as fun and frightening, in all its wondrous joys and sorrows. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars A really impressive version of a classic tale 26 Oct 2009
By redvers
Format:DVD
I was a little sceptical when I first heard of this film - specifically the casting of an american in the lead role. However it is a beautiful, richly shot and well acted version that should appeal to children of all ages. There is much humour but equally a very real sense of underlying threat in many scenes - as in some of the ones with the lost boys.
Jason Isaacs should be singled out for his impressive performances as both Mr Darling and Captain Hook.
The special effects are very well realised and you really can believe that never land truly exists. My young daughter loves this film and when you consider that the previous mainstream version of this classic story was the abomination 'Hook' - then this really is in a different league.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love, love, LOVE this film! 17 Feb 2011
Format:DVD
Like most Norwegian grown-ups, my relationship with «Peter Pan» largely stems from the Walt Disney movie released in 1953. I never read or saw the play, so I never knew there was more to the story than a charming boy defeating a mean pirate.

Then I saw P. J. Hogan's 2003 release, and became so blown away that I for a moment considered sueing Disney for theft. Yes, theft! Hogan presents a story so full of emotions, with so many intertwined stories and deeper meanings that I felt that James Matthew Barries original script must have been thoroughly abused for half a century, and the general public had been cheated out of a complete appreciation for the genius of «Peter Pan».

The first clue that this film had something else to offer lay three minutes into the film, in the subtle hinting to an increased sexual awareness that was offered through the curiosity about the «secret kiss» that Wendy knows her mother can never give her, and then gets told she herself has developed. The filmmaker's fidelity to the original script elegantly display that her father is not turning her out of the nursery just because of convention, but because Wendy really is crossing a treshhold that will leave innocence behind very soon.

I am now reading through the original play, and find that this version is very close to the words of J. M. Barrie, and captures the wide-eyed gleam of the author much better than the Disney version. The characters' depths are finely portrayed, and they come across as much more believeable than the one-dimensional cartoons in the other movie. Peter Pan, though still undeniably a boy, is clearly very attractive to any young girl as a prospective partner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Film - No Extras!! 3 Nov 2011
By Pantheon TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
As my title states, I think this is a brilliant film; but this release is let down by the lack of extras. The DVD release contained Deleted Scenes, an Alternate Ending, Featurettes and Trailers. Why Universal didn't see fit to transfer those extras onto this Blu-ray release is beyond me.

Anyone looking at this review is probably considering upgrading from their DVD to BD, so should you? For me the answer is a resounding YES! The picture and sound quality on this blu-ray are impeccable; and this will definitely be a film I will dig out to show friends just how good blu-ray can be. Colours are stunning and the pictures is crystal clear. Sometimes, due to the hyper-real look of the film, it almost looks 3D.
The only sound option is a 5.1 DTS HD-Master track with optional English subtitles. This is an excellent audio track which really utilises all the speakers and has a rich, cinema sound to it.

Because I love the film so much I really wanted to give this release 5 stars, but in good conscience couldn't do that; so I have removed 1 star for the lack of extras. But, if like me, this is one of your favourite films then upgrade and keep your DVD just for the extras to watch the extras.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent soundtrack 5 Feb 2007
Format:DVD
Thing that has suprised me about the reviews on here is not many people have commented on the soundtrack for this movie. It is trully fantastic.

This movie overal is a very good family movie. Not to violent for the kids and not to sappy for the adults.

I would recomend this movie fully!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bewitching 30 Aug 2006
Format:DVD
On viewing this film for the first time, I was absolutely adamant that it would be childish, facetious, sappy, and even (dare I say it) beneath me intellectually. However, I am delighted to admit that I was as bewitched by it as the toddler in the row in front of me. I was fascinated to observe a film simply driping in irony and depth, as opposed to the shallow, tedious disney rip-off I had none too eagerly anticipated.

How does Peter Pan pull of such a difficult task so easily? How is it innocent, yet provocative, romantic, yet not sappy, naive, yet not condescending?

I believe that the answer lies in the beautiful, subtle irony positively oozing from it.

For example, the double casting of Jason Isaacs as both Mr. Darling and Captain Hook. Simply a coincidence? I think not. This is doubtless a reflection of Wendy's feelings towards her father, her perception of him as a villian attempting to take away her childhood, as is illustrated in his endless pursuit of Peter, the very embodiment of all that is young and free.

Also, as an older viewer I was surpised at the underlying sensual emotions charging through several scenes in this film, that all the children in the cinema seemed oblivious to. Peter and Wemdy's woodland dance (whcih, by the way, was absolutely STUNNING) was a brilliant study of the emotional battle facing pubescent youths everywhere as they struggle to come to terms with their new-found sexual feelings. This point is further explored as Peter then shies away, looking for reassurance from Wendy that 'It's only make-believe, isn't it?
