Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Pan is an action-fantasy retelling of the Peter Pan story, focusing on how the legendary character went from being a London orphan to the Boy Who Could Fly. Young Peter is kidnapped from an orphanage and taken to Neverland to work for the pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman). Expect some intense scenes of brawls, sword fights, shootings, and explosions -- some of which lead to off-camera/implied deaths -- as well as a menacing crocodile. The body count, while notable, may go over the head of young viewers, since at least some of the departed turn into rainbow-colored chalk dust when they're dispatched. Language includes insults and exclamations like "daft," "imbeciles," "bloody hell," etc., and the romance is limited to a kissing scene shown in silhouette and some longing looks between Hook and Tiger Lily, who's a strong female character. The movie promotes teamwork and friendship and has a strong message about believing in yourself and your capability for greatness.
Hook flirts with Tiger Lily, and they exchange several longing looks. In flashback, viewers see a silhouette of a couple kissing. Beautiful mermaids save Peter, who tells Hook he would definitely like them.
Blackbeard orders people to jump to their death. Characters are injured/killed by gunshots, swords, and explosions; some turn into colorful chalk dust as they're killed. A man recalls killing a woman in the past. A crocodile menacingly comes near Peter, Tiger Lily, and Hook's boat. Full-out brawls feature pirates and tribespeople fighting with their swords and fists. Peter fights with older men. The fairies join the battle against Blackbeard. A boy is kidnapped.
Insults like "daft," "dirty old nun," "stupid," "imbecile," "coward," "bloody hell," and "shut up."
Strong messages about believing in yourself and your capability for greatness. Stresses the importance of friendship, alliances, and teamwork to overcome obstacles -- and, in this case, to defeat a common enemy.
