| Explained away the magic
This is a prequel dealing with Peter Pan (Charlie Rowe) as an orphan on the streets of London. Peter and his band of thieves work as pickpockets. Their evil mentor Jimmy Hook (Rhys Ifans) gets them to steal a magical treasure which transports them to Neverland. Once there Hook join with a group of pirates led by Elizabeth Bonny (Anna Friel) in search of more magic dust. Peter lands with the Indians and the beautiful Aaya (Q'orianka Kilcher) where the people don't age.

The story lack any pace. It drags along. With 240 minutes, this is way too long. It doesn't help that they explain away the magic. It reminds me of Star Wars explaining away The Force. Why can't they leave it alone? The acting is acceptable. All the big name give the expected performance. Charlie Rowe as Peter Pan is average. As for the production, it's got TV movie level. It's nothing to brag about. It's dark and dreary. Again all the magic is gone.

Trivia

Director Nick Willing mentioned (at 2:23:51 in the director's commentary of the SyFy version on the 2012 Vivendi Entertainment DVD) that the first scene shot in the movie was on the galley in Genoa where Jimmy Hook again appears dressed in his Edwardian cloths after many scenes of wearing Starkey's best suit of clothes. Willing mentioned (at around 02 mins) that the galley had been built for Roman Polanski's Pirates (1986) at a cost of $9 million, that a 6 day shoot in Genoa was planned, that the shoot was cut to 5 days for budgetary reasons, and that due to torrential rains they were only able to shoot for 4 days, which would have been the first week of the shoot.


Goofs

Captain Bonnie notes that Orion is "in the wrong place" and Polaris is not visible. From anywhere far enough away that Polaris is not visible, Orion would also not be visible, or the parts of it that were visible would not remotely resemble Orion as we see it from Earth.


Alternate Versions

In the director's commentary on the Vivendi Entertainment DVD, Nick Willing refers to two version of the film: one for Sky Movies (which he also calls the British version) that he mentions (at 2:01:50) cut out the moment when Hook reveals to Peter that he killed Peter's father; the other for the Syfy Channel, who he mentions (at 2:45:14) wanted to end the movie on Peter and on an up-note, so their version switched the last two scenes of the screenplay and ends with Peter's return to the Lost Boys with gifts while the Sky Movies version ends with Hook looking directly at the camera after Peter returns.
