Peter Rabbit is a film adaption of the Peter Rabbit series is book originally written by Beatrix Potter. The film was first shown in theaters on 2018-02-09.

Being a big fan of the Peter Rabbit books, I was pleased to see a film being made. I didn't watch it in theaters, but I saw it on Netflix. I was a bit disappointed.

Review

Good

  • The movie has good voice acting.
  • There is a lot of action throughout the whole film.
  • I like how various illustrations by Potter are used throughout the film, and even in some of the action shots.

Bad

  • The film takes huge liberties with the source material. The mother is dead, Mr. McGregor dies, Beatrix is a character, etc.
  • A lot of the point of Potter's stories was that mischief and disobedience has bad results, but the film mostly rewards bad behavior.
  • In the books, Peter and his family are children, but in the movie, they're more like teenagers. Likewise, the books are targeted for children, but the movie is targeted at older kids.

Ugly

  • Nothing, but I didn't care much for the film.
