I attended an advanced screening of this film. All opinions are my own.
I am a big fan of Peter Pan films and I love Hugh Jackman. I have been super excited to see the new movie, Pan. Although it was very different than I thought it was going to be, my husband and I both had fun watching Pan.
The actors in this movie were great. By far, my favorite was Hugh Jackman as the evil captain Blackbeard. He is a different type of pirate than you are expecting. Hugh Jackman definitely had fun being the bad guy. There is also a musical number in the movie and Hugh Jackman does a little singing.
The visual effects and CGI in this movie are very impressive. Joe Wright and his creative team definitely have created a different kind of Neverland we have never seen. I had the chance to see this movie in 3D and the flying effects were pretty neat. Overall though, I do not know if I would recommend this movie in 3D.
This movie is a great movie for the family. It is a little violent but it is within the movie’s PG rating. There may be a few moments that would be scary for younger children but overall, I think most children will enjoy this movie. This is also a movie that parents will enjoy.
Overall, Pan is a fun film for the whole family to enjoy for its great visual effects and great performances from the whole cast.
