Advantages: kept the kids quiet, jason isaacs
Disadvantages: bit boring for adults
Recently while babysitting for two young girls, one being seven and the other one four, it was raining outside and I needed to find something they could do to keep them busy. They'd already been drawing that day and w e'd been playing games all morning so now Ew decided to put on some telly. I was worried there wouldn't't be anything on that was capable of holding their attention for longer than five minutes. They have very short attention spans. but luckily I saw that peter pan was on sky movies and i knew already that they liked the story.
Jason isaacs is the biggest star in this, he plays captain hook. (And a few others such as wendy's father)You may know him from the harry potter films in which he plays lucius malfoy, draco malfoys dad. he plays the baddy really well in both films. I think he does a great job as hook, and i could tell by the kids' faces they were scared of him!
The film is full of action and something exciting happens every couple of minutes. There is a big sword fight on the ship towards the end of the film which is between hook and peter pan. The kids eyes were huge at this point as they were scared abiyt the fate of their beloved favourite character pan. They also lived tinkerbell. I dont know who played hr but I thought she was quite good. The only star I recognised wad jasin isaacs. Most of the other characters were children.
Although I wouldn't personally chose to watch this again on my own, I'm sure the kids would and as it kept them quiet I would put it on for them again and sit with them. It kept them quiet and they seemed to really enjoy it. They kept talking about it after qe had watched it, reminding me of things that had happened in it. The film was released in 2003 so it is still quite new. It is 113 mins long so if you have kids that is just under two hours peace. I would recomnend this for kids.
Summary: recommended overall
