Peter Pan

Overall C+

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.

Peter Pan has seen many incarnations on the big screen including the Disney film, which debuted in 1953. Audiences recently got a chance to Return to Never Land in another animated movie. Older audiences may find Hook, the live action film starring Dustin Hoffman as the evil pirate and Robin Williams as a grownup Peter to be a more engaging portrayal of the story. Devotees of Harry Potter may recognize the Hook in this 2003 version as the nasty Lucius Malfoy in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
