Axel Braun's moviemaking powers seem to be most potent when he's visiting the fairy tale realm—whether it's the true kid in his heart showing or just an unparalleled flair for the material, with his output for the Wicked Fairy Tales line he's been able perhaps more so than in any of his other work to consistently bring to life a sense of genuine wonder and enthrallment, and Peter Pan XXX is another dazzling example of that type of movie magic.
It also serves as a resounding breakthrough for its two leads, Scotsman Ryan Ryder in the role of Peter Pan and the previously almost unknown Keira Nicole as Pan’s childhood sweetheart Wendy. It’s nary too often that one can legitimately call a part in a porn movie “star-making,” but at least in Nicole’s case—and maybe Ryder’s, too—that’s just what’s on display in Peter Pan XXX.
Playing a grown-up, married Wendy (though Peter curiously remains a boy, albeit a post-pubescent one), Nicole lights up the screen from the very first moment … and she affects such a stunningly convincing British accent that when she speaks with her native American one in the BTS, it’s a bit disconcerting. For Ryder’s part, few moments in all of adult cinema have been as memorable as when he breaks into his own rendition of the beloved song “You Can Fly” from Disney’s animated original—the chorus of this version, but of course, going, “We can fuck, we can fuck, we can fuck!” Which he and Wendy proceed to do, thus rekindling the youthful vigor she needs to fly away with Peter back to Neverland.
Steven St. Croix turns in one of his best performances in years here, as well, in a double role as Wendy’s demeaning husband and Peter’s perennial nemesis Captain Hook. The story finds Hook holding Tinker Bell hostage (the impish fairy played by Braun exclusive Riley Steele) in order to suss out Pan’s whereabouts. Leading up to their climactic confrontation, Hook gets a taste of Tink’s pink (after she shrinks him down to her size), Pan gets a b.j. from two mermaids (Mia Malkova and Steele’s contract sister Aiden Ashley), and Wendy gets gangbanged by two Lost Boys and bumbling pirate Smee (respectively, Dane Cross, Jake Jace and Jay Crew).
Tink, too, has a second sexual liaison of her own—this time in full-sized human form—with Tiger Lily (Vicki Chase) and her tribe’s medicine man, Bigodick (Tommy Gunn).
In short, Peter Pan XXX is a somewhat unexpected lightning strike of pure porno gold; as Braun himself has said of the production, every element sort of just comes together sublimely, and the result is utterly enchanting. This, like the tale that inspired it, is a future classic in its own right—one whose universal appeal will not fade as time marches on.
