Product Description

Product Description

Re-discover the timeless story of Peter Pan as you’ve never seen it before and be swept off your feet to a Neverland you’d never dreamt possible. Magic, adventure, flying, swashbuckling action and amazing special effects: this feature film version of Peter Pan by critically acclaimed filmmakers has got it all.

Join the boy who wouldn’t grow up and Wendy, the girl who is told she has to, in their adventure against Captain Hook and his pirate crew. Follow Tinkerbell, the Lost Boys, giant crocodiles and other fanatastic creatures to a world where anything is possible … and where dreams and imagination have a power all of their own.

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

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.

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.

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?

I saw this as less about Peter not wanting to grow up and more about Wendy accepting the inevitable and wanting one last childhood adventure before taking on the mantle of womanhood.
I loved the way Mr Darling's lack of emotion was embodied in Captain Hook (Jason Isaacs is THE master of the devilishly handsome bad guy!), whilst illustrating that deep down he (Darling and Hook) was actually afraid to let go of his feelings. It was clear that Wendy actually saw beyond her father's ineptitude to his heroism within by the portayal of Hook as dashing and elegant, yet slightly incompetent.
The idea that the Lost Boys needed a mother was for me, glaringly obvious that this was in part, Wendy's admiration and hero worship of her own mother and partly that she accepted that to be a mother is the most noble thing a woman can be. I'm not sure that this sentiment could be written today without feminists everywhere being up in arms!
The entire film for me was a montage of growing awareness of sexuality and adulthood. There was a great scene where Hook is pointing out to Wendy that Peter is a mere boy and pretty soon what she'll need is a husband; a *real man*. The way that scene was played was full of ambiguity...was Hook suggesting she needed an older man? Was it her father saying that a mere boy would never be good enough? Was Hook admitting that he was actually very lonely and wanted a wife (not necessarily Wendy)?
I also loved the suggestion that the pirates, although on the face of it, were bad people, all they really needed was someone who cared for them...hence having Wendy tell them stories.
