REEL DEAL: Pan REVIEW

There is always a special place for the story of Peter Pan and Neverland in our hearts, and with years since the last incarnation of the well loved story, Pan comes in to bring a new story behind the characters of Neverland. Led by Hugh Jackman as the pirate Blackbeard, and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter, brings a whole new excitement to kids and kids-at-heart.

Pan tells the story before he became the flying boy who does not grow up. The story when he first met the soon-to-be "Captain" Hook  played by Garret Hedlund and also found accidental friendship with Tiger Lily played by Rooney Mara. 

The movie was indeed a visual feast with a another re-imagination of the children's tale. There was also a twist with the music that is used for this film as they gambled with modern songs interpreted into the tune of the moment and the timeline. Comparatively a new concept with this prequel brings surprise, which can either be a miss or hit. Nevertheless, it is still an enjoyable film that is best seen with the whole family and in 3D.


Pan stars Levi Miller, Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund, Rooney Mara, and Amanda Seyfried.

Pan is now showing in cinemas nationwide. Distributed by Warner Bros. Entertainment Company .

Deliberation time kids! 


Show summary in 3 lines: Think happy thoughts


Technical Effects: 4 out of 5 stars (I can say, it is really good technically but quite not convinced with the flying part)


Plot: 2 out of 5 stars (There are just too many cliche moments, even kids can spot it)

Acting and Actors: 4 out of 5 stars  (The two leads Miller and Jackman stood out while the others are on the safe side) 


Pros: Levi Miller, Hugh Jackman, visuals, songs

Cons:
plot, the design of the fairies, less impact with minor characters

Music and Soundtracks:  4 out for 5 stars (Using modern songs reinterpreted does work, it is a good thing that they kept a limited number of songs, or else it would be a musical or will cause boredom)

Overall: Rating 3.5 out of 5 stars (Visually it is good, but a better storytelling can be done with this)
