HOOK is purely magic. Spielberg took the tale of Peter Pan and instead of going the safe route and retelling the story he advanced and added to the story with an older Peter Pan who’s forgotten who he really is. It sets up a grand adventure.
The plot, the sets, the actors, the music, everything is on point. This might just be John Williams most under appreciated score. It’s beautiful.
I don’t just love HOOK for the nostalgia, I love it because it’s a bloody good movie that holds up today. Dustin Hoffman for me is the definitive Captain Hook. He’s brilliant. Robin Williams, well I don’t need to say anything about that legend. He always delivered.
Already counting down the days until the next annual rewatch.
