In this incarnation, Peter is imbued with a greater degree of psychological darkness than before.

Certainly not the greatest graphics. Awkward filming. Decent acting. Incredibly cute. Yeah, I'd have my kids watch this if I had them!

Sumpter makes a good Pan on camera but when it comes to emotion all he can do his smile and nod. :/ However, there are a lot of redeeming factors. The gorgeous… More

The graphic quality is stunningly bad, enough to take one's attention away from the (admittedly mediocre) story. But Jeremy Sumpter is the kind of guy I… More

A surprisingly worthy adaption of the classic tale.
