Fantasy: Peter Pan's origin story is re-imagined, with the title character featured as a 12-year-old orphan in World War II London, who is kidnapped by pirates and whisked away to Neverland.
Peter (LEVI MILLER) is a 12-year-old orphan, whose mother, Mary (AMANDA SEYFRIED) abandoned him when he was just a baby. It is now World War II London, and the orphanage is under seemingly constant threat of Nazi air raids. Peter and his friend, Nibs (LEWIS MacDOUGALL), are under constant threat of the strict, stern Mother Barnabas (KATHY BURKE). We learn that she and the other nuns have been selling orphans to pirates, who come in the middle of the night, snatch the young boys out of their beds, and spirit them off to a fantastical place called Neverland.

Peter is snatched one fateful night, and he soon finds himself enslaved to the infamous Blackbeard (HUGH JACKMAN). The ruthless pirate leader has set up a massive operation to mine for Pixium, a glowing substance hidden by fairies that stops the effects of aging when ground into dust and snorted. Peter believes his mother may be in Neverland and enlists the aid of a fellow slave, the roguish James Hook (GARRETT HEDLUND), and a shifty mine supervisor named Smee (ADEEL AKHTAR) to escape.

Once free, they are taken prisoner by the "natives" of Neverland led by the warrior princess Tiger Lily (ROONEY MARA). In their camp, Peter learns that he is the offspring of a fairy prince and a human woman and could very well be the prophesized Chosen One who will rise up and defeat Blackbeard and restore peace and freedom to Neverland. But Blackbeard is hot on his trail and eager to find the fairies' secret kingdom where there is reportedly a massive supply of Pixium for the taking.

Yes. Although the film skews dark, it is rated PG and should appeal to young boys and girls in the 7 to 13 age range, in particular.
For fantasy action violence, language, and some thematic material.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
