    A refreshing take on an old classic

    With so many versions done on J.M. Barrie's creation, Peter Pan, this one had me set for a Blu-ray purchase rather than a cinema visit. My oldest daughter was excited to see this one but the others were on the fence about it. So, as tradition in our household goes, my oldest daughter opted for my option of buying it on Blu-ray, rather than the usually expensive cinema visit. Enter "Pan" in our home theater and the experience was a refreshing one that served to interest us all the way to the end. The take on Peter Pan's tale here is certainly a departure from the way it's been played with other versions but we had expected that and even welcomed it. The film flowed well, overall, the visuals were top notch and the acting was well done (Hugh Jackman and Levi Miller are excellent). The transition between worlds (ours and Neverland) was interesting and done in a way to remind the audience that this is a tale steeped in magic, hence, suspend your disbelief and you'll enjoy the film that much more. Then, Peter Pan has never been a tale steeped in realism and that actually works to Pan's advantage. So, I'll recommend the film as worthy family fare with excellent production values but unless you're the kind that's willing to take a leap of faith and have an open mind, you may want to rent this one first. Regarding the technical merits of the film, the video and audio are top notch all the way. Speaking to the video, the film's locations, whether it be 20th century London or the appropriately scenic Neverland, serves to show off the strong mastery of Pan's video. Colors are bright, details are clear and blacks are well defined...as long as you're watching this in a darkened room, you'll never lose sight of any details in dark scenes. Even bright rooms can give a good viewing experience but you'll still have to draw the shades a bit for the dark scenes. As for the audio, Dolby Atmos offers a rich sense of immersion. Early in the movie, you'll be treated to an exciting sequence that will definitely show off the chops of an Atmos-enabled receiver. The 3D soundscape throughout most of Neverland will put you right beside the characters in their adventure and it'll certainly make you appreciate the experience more with than without it. Setting the speakers to the 7.1 experience still proved to be a treat, indeed, but the Atmos track (5.1.2) certainly adds to the feeling that you're in the movie. If you can get this for the right price (I picked up ours for $10 on sale), then there's little lost if you'd planned on watching it at your local cinema but missed the chance. This movie's well worth the chance.

    Looks Great, but Movie Stinks

    Pan is utterly forgettable. There is no reason for this re-imagined and retooled version to exist beyond Warner Bros. attempting to get in on the current trend of turning classic fairy tales and more specifically, classic animated Disney films, into some kind of live-action confection. What doesn't work here though is the fact the Peter Pan story has been told so many times before and given we've all likely seen at least two iterations of J.M. Barrie's story (even the kids this movie is targeting will have seen Disney's 1953 adventure countless times) there is nowhere for this film to go that doesn't feel like it's either retreading familiar ground or desperately stretching. Unfortunately, the latter is what director Joe Wright's (Atonement, Hanna) new film does as it options to go back to the beginning and tell us the now obligatory origin story that basically covers all the stuff that happens before all the good stuff happens. The real issue here though is in the script from writer Jason Fuchs who contributed to the last Ice Age film and is the sole screenwriter on the upcoming Wonder Woman feature (not instilling a lot of faith there). There is a lot going on here which only creates more and more issues for the film as it goes on, but the source of each of these issues seems to stem from the main issue of the base story never truly recognizing itself. Each scene is strewn together with no connecting strands, no substance and thus nothing for the next scene to build upon. It's as if Fuchs was figuring out the story for himself as he went along and once he was done, never bothered to go back and write a second draft. Once upon a time I would have killed to see Wright take on huge, fantastical material such as this, but in his first big-budget studio effort the director has delivered what couldn't be a more underwhelming and, like I said in the beginning, forgettable experience.

    PAN is a fresh look at the (back) story

    Despite the fact that this film bombed at the box offices, I definitely think it is worth a watch. PAN is a fresh, interesting, and absorbing interpretation of J.M. Barrie's original work--although not the best in my humble opinion. The best modern interpretation of Peter Pan for me is still Steven Spielberg's HOOK, filmed over 25 years ago. Nevertheless, there are several modern touches that make THIS Pan more relevant for viewers in 2015 while remaining somewhat faithful to Barrie's original story. The special effects in PAN are certainly more 'special' than all prior adaptations, and the CGI imagery was used masterfully to create a visual feast for the senses. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The acting was top notch, and the story intriguing in that it was at times predictable and other times unpredictable. While I found the movie to be entertaining, I don't believe Pan is the sort of movie that possesses universal appeal. It is more a movie for fathers and tween sons than mothers and tween daughters. There is sporadic violence and unnecessary fighting throughout the film. It might have made more sense if Peter himself were involved in the fray, but for this we have to wait until the last seven minutes of the film. Further, Peters internal struggles to understand and fulfill his destiny in Neverland fully occupied 95% of the film and made it more somber and morose than previous Pan movies. The movie was far too serious for far too long in my humble opinion. To sum things up, I think this film lacks the general sense of fun and adventure one might expect of a Peter Pan story, although it does have several merits that make it a worthwhile investment of time. It is helpful at times to remember that PAN is a prequel, and as such is taking us backwards in time into hitherto unknown territory.

    ENJOYABLE

    After so much negative advance word, I was surprised to find that Pan was an enjoyable viewing experience. The visuals are often stunning, the story is classical, and the characters are consistently interesting (and anyone who thinks they're unrealistic or too broadly drawn should take a good long look at reality, which daily offers people every bit as extreme as Blackbeard or Hook). If the film has flaws, they're in the restraint that Wright applied to keep the film family-friendly and in the vestiges of narrative machinery (e.g., the opening voiceover) that dangle the promise of an "origin story". Pan is something else, and if you can take it that way, the Blu-ray is recommended.

    I am a huge Peter Pan fan. Did not get to see this in theaters. So had to jump at buying this. If you are familiar with the orig Peter Pan story, then do a 180 and get ready for this. This story went in a totally different direction leading up to sequels if they wanted to. This is Peter going off to Neverland but finding himself as Pan. Yes, of course there is Capt. Hook. but he's not the bad guy in this one. Huh? He's Peter's friend. I guess for now. It's another pirate they are up against in this movie. Played by Hugh Jackman. This is a great cast and you will not be disappointed.

    Pan was better than expected

    After PAN tanked in the theaters, and got such bad reviews, I was not sure it was going to keep us engaged. Sure there was some goofy choices, like the pirates signing Nirvana's Smells like teen spirit, but I was pleasantly surprised that I really liked the movie! The back story of Peter Pan was fun ride, meeting James Hook, his friend and partner Sme, and a pretty solid choice of actor to play Peter. Sure it is predictable, sure it is corny, sure it makes you have to believe in things, but go along with it.... allow yourself to believe, be a lost boy again, and enjoy the movie!

    Different Take on a Classic Story

    I wasn't sure to expect with all the mixed reviews and mediocre box office results for this movie, but after seeing it I was pleasantly surprised. If you set aside what you know about the Peter Pan story and just sit back and enjoy the ride, you'll probably feel the same. As usual, Hugh Jackman does an excellent job playing his role, and the boy who played Pan held his own too. It's definitely a visual spectacle to enjoy with the whole family.
