Picture from Peter Pan
Overall C+

In this live-action version of the famous fairy tale, Peter Pan (Jeremy Sumpter) invites Wendy (Rachel Hurd-Ward) and her younger brothers, John (Harry Newell) and Michael (Freddie Popplewell) to the magical isle of Never Land. Although it follows the familiar plot points, this adaptation does not prove as child friendly as some of the other tellings of J.M Barrie's classic story.
