Pan gets off to an enjoyable start… But it’s while in Neverland that both narrative and character interest begin to falter. The nature of Peter’s mission is muddled, and what was a Boy’s Own adventure becomes a story cluttered with adult performers of strikingly different tones.

The only person who seems to be having any fun is Jackman; at least he gets to be weird. But even that’s mostly consigned to his early scenes. As the film continues, and piles predictable action scenes atop borrowed plot points, he just becomes just another baddie lost in the visual cacophony — a glorified cutaway. His flamboyant persona is no match for the drudgery of this movie, which careens helplessly between the garish and the generic.

The action is so frenetic, the eye doesn’t know where to go.
