A woefully uneven retelling of the ''Peter Pan'' story.

For very much like Peter, it has clearly gotten harder for this director to break free of the lure of material things and believe in simple magic.

"Hook" is a huge and impressive movie. One could say it's the ultimate baby-boomer fantasy. Sadly, it's too loaded down with grown-up compromises and calculated Hollywood devices to really makes us think happy thoughts ... and fly.

What it all is, really, is a glorious Spielbergian essay on the value, in gold doubloons, of rampant sentimentality.
March 25, 2019
Unhappily, however, the transformation of a Type A American lawyer into a boy wonder unfolds with an uncertainty and clumsiness atypical of Spielberg.

P.P., phone home. Or at least, get a new agent.

Spielberg's Hook is an absolute delight.
March 25, 2019
It's a lot of fun to watch - over two hours of thrills, spills, elaborate sets and special effects, all tied together by a pleasingly varied (and lighter than usual) musical score by John Williams.

''Hook'' never sets sail.

A painful and traitorous adventure. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 25, 2019
It lights up your eyes, but it doesn't quite warm your heart.
March 25, 2019
Although the sentimentality gets a little sticky at times, this remains rousing entertainment.

March 25, 2019
As top-heavy as Captain Hook's ornate, immobile ship, this lavish, elaborate production ultimately collapses under its own weight.

Bob Hoskins hops aboard as Hook's hapless mate Smee while Julia Roberts sprinkles fairydust as the mischievous Tink.

Spielberg's Neverland carries undeniable charm and depth. The problems start when we're asked to accept its two-dimensional residents as anything other than tourists on a forced march through its various nooks and crannies.

The story is hard to follow if you don't know Peter Pan already, and, for a child, probably even harder if you do.
September 11, 2017
Given the inherent importance of children to the Peter Pan universe, it's near fatal that Hook has so many terrible child roles.

In the end, Hook isn't great or terrible, but it's both - a film that has some wonderful moments, and some really awful ones
May 11, 2013
You just have to appreciate its creative angle toward Peter Pan and his world.
September 7, 2011
Young kids will love this stuff. You're always aware of the effects, though, because Spielberg hasn't integrated the matte shots, storybook backgrounds, and other technical devices into the story; they're held up for the audience to ooh and aah over.
