Ignore what they say!,
This review is from: Peter Pan (2003) [DVD] (DVD)If you've got a heart, a bit of imagination, a bit of intelligence, and a genuine soul, then ignore what the critics say, this film is a real treat!
Not like the American versions of films like 'hook' this is subtle, clever, and surprisingly deep. True to the soul of Barrie's work, the film explores the magic of childhood in a wonderful array of effects AND characters that are so British.
I watched it expecting more slushy rubbish and over-blown special effects, but was quickly enveloped in a tale of innocence and charm at one level, and wit and insight at another. Anyone who doesn't get moved by this story is dead from the feet up!
