For the Kids Who Don't Want to Grow Up
Yes, I know it's several years old, but I just watched it tonight for the first time. I have to say, it is the most amazing treatment of this story I have ever seen. And the casting was perfect. And the effects were stunning. And the sets were mind-blowing. And the music was transcending.
After watching the movie, then all the many special features, I still didn't want it to end. Were it not, in fact, 1:00 in the morning already, I would have started watching it again immediately.
I was only previewing it before letting the kids watch it, to make sure the portrayal of Captain Hook by Jason Isaacs wouldn't scare the daylights out of them. Now I know that I'll want to drop what I'm doing to watch it with them every time they decide to pick it! (I'm guessing we're going to see a renewal of last year's "pirate and Pan mania" in our house.)
All I can say is, it'll make you believe in magic.
