12-year-old orphan Peter is spirited away to the magical world of Neverland, where he finds both fun and danger, and ultimately discovers his destiny — to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan.
Pan tells the story of a 12 year old boy named, Peter(Levi Miller). Peter is an orphan who lives in an orphanage for boys. One night, he is kidnapped & taken to a magical place, called Neverland. Here, he meets an evil pirate named, Blackbeard(Hugh Jackman). Blackbeard tells Peter of an ancient prophecy that says, he will be defeated by a boy who can fly. Blackbeard believes Peter is the boy mentioned in the prophecy. With the help of an ally named Hook(Garrett Hedlund), Peter escapes from the evil pirate’s clutches. Now, it is up to Peter to embrace his destiny & become the hero everyone now calls, Peter Pan.
Pan is a good film. The highlight of the movie are the special effects. The fantasy world of Neverland looks beautiful and extremely realistic. The 3D has been put to great use throughout the film. There are several action set pieces in the movie that are eye-popping in 3D. Apart from the visual effects there is nothing much to write home about. The story of the film is very generic & resembles the plot of pretty much every fantasy film out there. I’m not complaining though. You can make out that director Joe Wright made this movie, mainly with the kids in mind. The riot of colors & the various magical aspects of Neverland will keep any child glued to the screen, right till the end. Hugh Jackman is great as Blackbeard. Though Jackman is completely capable of portraying a much more intimidating villain as seen in Chappie(2015), you can make out that Jackman purposely portrayed Blackbeard as an over the top antagonist, to entertain the kids. They are the target audience for the film, after all. Newcomer Levi Miller is brilliant as Peter. Miller has a bright future ahead of him, in Hollywood. Garrett Hedlund is awesome as Hook. It’s nice to see Hedlund portray a completely new take on a famous character. Rooney Mara is impressive as Tiger Lily. Adeel Akhtar is hilarious as Sam Smiegel. Nonso Anozie is effective as Bishop. Amanda Seyfried is good in her small but important role, as Mary. Kathy Burke is menacing as Mother Barnabas. Lewis MacDougall is adorable as Nibs. Cara Delevingne is impressive as the Mermaids. Pan is not a must watch. However, it’s worth a watch in 3D on the big screen, with your entire family. Kids will love it. Adults will find it anywhere from average to good, depending on their mindset.
