From director Joe Wright comes "Pan," a live-action feature presenting a wholly original adventure about the beginnings of the beloved characters created by J.M. Barrie. Peter is a mischievous 12-year-old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak, but in the bleak London orphanage where he has lived his whole life those qualities do not exactly fly. Then one incredible night, Peter is whisked away from the orphanage and spirited off to a fantastical world of pirates, warriors and fairies called Neverland. There, he finds amazing adventures and fights life-or-death battles while trying to uncover the secret of his mother, who left him at the orphanage so long ago, and his rightful place in this magical land. Teamed with the warrior Tiger Lily and a new friend named James Hook, Peter must defeat the ruthless pirate Blackbeard to save Neverland and discover his true destiny—to become the hero who will forever be known as Peter Pan.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Pan finds a few bursts of magic in its prequel treatment of classic characters, though not enough to offset the rushed plot and shrill, CGI-fueled action.
If Pan's screenplay is a lesson in anything, it's that most beloved stories don't require a whole...

The most cheering surprise of the season is "Pan."

The very idea behind Pan is ill-conceived. Who wants a prequel to Peter Pan?

Uneven origin story is disappointing; expect some violence.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Pan is an action-fantasy retelling of the Peter Pan story, focusing on how the legendary character went from being a London orphan to the Boy Who Could Fly. Young Peter is kidnapped from an orphanage and taken to Neverland to work for the pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman). Expect some intense scenes of brawls, sword fights, shootings, and explosions -- some of which lead to off-camera/implied deaths -- as well as a menacing crocodile. The body count, while notable, may go over the head of young viewers, since at least some of the departed turn into rainbow-colored chalk dust when they're dispatched. Language includes insults and exclamations like "daft," "imbeciles," "bloody hell," etc., and the romance is limited to a kissing scene shown in silhouette and some longing looks between Hook and Tiger Lily, who's a strong female character. The movie promotes teamwork and friendship and has a strong message about believing in yourself and your capability for greatness.
