Peter Pan


As faithful as it is to JM Barrie's children's romp, PJ Hogan's film is all ingredients and no cake. Sure, once you get past the over-synthetic Neverland you'll find groovy designs and effects, with Peter's shadow taking on vivid life and the mermaids exuding plentiful menace. The cast don't slouch either, Jason Isaacs hamming up Hook and Ludivine Sagnier making for an irascible Tink. The problem is that Hogan simply soups up an old, old story without finding fresh magic in it, pottering along amiably without really taking flight.
