Ever since my son saw this trailer in the theaters, he has been asking us to see PAN! Unfortunately we missed our chance to see it in theaters, so when I had the chance to review the film I couldn’t wait to surprise my son!
This is a new spin on the classic tale. We learn about how it all began. Who Peter Pan is…how he arrived in Neverland…how he met James Hook! It’s a story the whole family can enjoy.
Peter (Levi Miller) was left at a bleak London orphanage when he was just a baby. He mother wanted him to be safe. Unfortunately, the orphanage was a horrible place to grow up. Peter was a mischievous 12-year-old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak. The nuns did not condone Peter’s independent qualities. Then one incredible night, Peter and some of the other boys in the orphanage were whisked away and spirited off to a fantastical world of pirates, warriors and fairies called Neverland.
In Neverland, he found himself a slave to the ruthless pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman). He met a new friend named James Hook (Garrett Hedlund), who helped him escape. Logan loved the action! His favorite scene was when James Hook stole the pirate ship and it flew…then they had a battle! James Hook, Smee, and Peter got away…but not for long!
Peter’s goal was to find his mother. In doing so, he faced amazing adventures and fights life-or-death battles. But there was more to the story… he had to find his rightful place in this magical land… he needed to find out who HE really was!
Together with James Hook, Peter teamed up with the warrior Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara). With his new friends, Peter must defeat Blackbeard in order to save Neverland!
Both of my children, Logan (8) and Kira (6), enjoyed the film. There was only one “bad” word that I noticed (though I don’t think the kids picked up on it). The fighting scenes are not overly violent. There is no blood and guts. Just colorful smoke coming out of the guns and swords knocking people over. They did the action scenes well to keep with the PG standards.
Amazon offers gift wrapping, so you may be able to have it wrapped in time for Christmas!
