When their eldest brother dies, Peter and Alice seek to save their parents from despair until they are forced to choose between home and imagination, setting the stage for their iconic journeys into Wonderland and Neverland.
Eight-year-old Alice (Keira Chansa), her mischievous brother Peter (Jordan A. Nash) and their brilliant older sibling David (Reece Yates) let their imaginations run wild one blissful summer in the English countryside. Encouraged by their parents Jack and Rose (David Oyelowo and Angelina Jolie), the kids' make-believe tea parties, sword fights and pirate ship adventures come to an abrupt end when tragedy strikes. Peter, eager to prove himself a hero to his grief-stricken and financially-struggling parents, journeys with Alice to London, where they try to sell a treasured heirloom to the sinister pawnshop owner known as C.J. (David Gyasi). Returning home, Alice seeks temporary refuge in a wondrous rabbit hole while Peter permanently escapes reality by entering a magical realm as leader of the "Lost Boys."
The actor who played the Jokers Henchman (Martin Ballantyne), in The Dark Knight, appears as an Ironmonger, in a scene set down 'Riddlers Walk', in a reference to the Batman franchise. The second unit director on this film; Richard Graysmark, was also the second unit director on The Dark Knight. See more »
So... a 2 seems like a high score for this movie but I give them two points due to the good acting, design and special effects but who wrote this? There were several stories going on at once and they never come together and have some very odd themes throughout. Confusing, mindless, twisting story with no end or beginning. Do yourself a favor and clean the kitchen rather than watch this movie. It will be a more entertaining and productive use of time.
