Consensus: With its forgettable songs and lackluster story, this new Pan will surely entertain kids, but will feel more like a retread to adults.

Has an unappealing main character drifting through a dramatically inert script.

I thought it was ok. I would rather watch Hook than sit through this though. It is better than most of the straight to DVD sequels that disney always puts out… More

In this film we see complete fluke of nature. It's a modern sequel to a Disney classic that is not only watchable, but actually quite good. The story is… More
