Peter Pan & Wendy
Peter Pan & Wendy is a new
telling of a classic tale. The film follows Wendy Darling, a youthful girl
seeking to escape boarding school, crosses paths with Peter Pan, a boy
steadfast in his determination to remain forever young. Accompanied by her
brothers and Tinker Bell, Wendy embarks on a journey to the enchanting realm of
Neverland, where they confront a malevolent pirate captain.
What follows is The Good, The Bad, and The
Spoilers of Peter Pan & Wendy.
One of the things I liked most
about Peter Pan & Wendy is that it emphasized the Native
American perspective by delving into the culture related to Tiger Lily. It
provided a nuanced portrayal, shedding light on their traditions, beliefs, and
interactions within the context of Neverland. The movie made a deliberate
effort to showcase the Native American side of the story, contributing to a
more inclusive and diverse representation in the overall storyline.
While Peter Pan &
Wendy is a retelling of a classic, the plot
felt disappointingly cliché, recycling the same old storylines we've seen
countless times before. Despite a promising cast and production, the film
failed to bring a fresh perspective, leaving audiences with a sense of déjà vu.
I also did not enjoy the villain redemption arch that they added to Captain Hook,
although I will concede that this could be the creators attempt at an innovative
twist to the stories normal narrative.
My Overall Opinion
I give Peter Pan &
Wendy a depressing 4 out of 10.
