Flashback Friday-Peter Pan (2003)

Peter Pan is youth immortalized. Based on the story by early 20th century playwright and author J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan has been on screen and on stage many times since his introduction to the world in 1904.

In 2003, the story was turned into a film. The movie starred Jeremy Sumpter as the title character, Jason Isaacs in the dual roles as the villainous Captain Hook/Mr. Darling and Rachel Hurd-Ward as Wendy Darling. Keeping to the traditional telling of Peter Pan, Peter brings Wendy and her brothers to Never Never Land and battles his long time nemesis, Captain Hook.

This movie is not entirely bad. It’s still Peter Pan, there is nothing new or different about the plot. The filmmakers could have heavily leaned on special effects to tell the story, but thankfully, they didn’t.

The only problem is that we all know the Peter Pan story, there is nothing at this point to shock or surprise the audience.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.
