Pan Review: Neverland Legend is a Fun Yet Flawed Adventure
The story of Pan follows the journey of Peter (Levi Miller): an orphan trying to discover what happen to his mother as he remains in an orphanage. As kids continue to disappear, Peter tries to uncover the truth, but is soon abducted by pirates in the night. Peter is taken to a place called Neverland where he encounters the notorious pirate leader Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman). After meeting James Hook (Garrett Hedlund), the two journey into Neverland where they find Tiger Lilly (Rooney Mara) and the other natives. Discovering the truth about his past, Peter must find a way to save Neverland and become the legendary “Pan”.
Pan may not be the most exemplary rendition to the J.M. Barrie story; and when it comes to movies, it is not most dynamic of its kind. However when it came to being entertaining, Pan more than exceeds with its engaging cast and its fantastic sense of spectacle. Because of these factors, as well as other elements, Pan turned out to be a fun adventure worth seeing this season; and its own way: this prequel stayed true to the name of Peter Pan.
