Movie: Peter Pan and Iron Mask

Peter Pan (Rating: 4 out of 5)

The flying wasn't particularly great, but I thought that there were a few spectacular actors/actresses. Jeremy Sumpter as Peter Pan was a perfect match; he easily slipped into the character and had the perfect sly smile, adorable dimples, and the most gorgeous sparkling blue eyes. His expression was flawless. The French girl that played Tinkerbell was hilarious; her wide range of expression and energy jumped off the screen. I don't think she needed the added glitter to her face and costume, because her energy radiates. And of course, Captain Hook was fantastic. The story made me cry though. Who would have thought a little fairytale could make me cry. I guess the idea of never being able to see the one you love so dearly ever again is frightening. I thought it was great movie and I recommend everyone to see it. I've watched over and over again just because I thought it was a cute feel-good happy imaginative movie.

Iron Mask (Rating: 3.5 out of 5)

I saw the Iron Mask a few days ago and I thought it was great for an action film. I'd definitely recommend NOT seeing the dubbed version, but the captioned version. Dubbed British voices for asian characters just doesn't work; you end up laughing at the accents rather than watching the movie. If you're looking for a good martial arts action film, I'd definitely watch it. The young Wong Fei-hung is actually played by a girl, which I found hilarious because you really can't tell. But also kind of inspiring because she was so good that she was given the role instead of a less-qualified boy. Donnie Yen is spectacular in the movie and the choreography was done by the same person that choreographed Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. There are some really neat scenes, including a battle on wooden logs, because there is a fire beneath them. There's a lot of heavy wire work, but I think it was done seamlessly. I'd rate it 4.5 out of 5 for an action movie, but the acting is never spectacular in action movies; although, i don't think you could argue that the acting was bad--it just wasn't anything special.
