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.
January 2, 2011
A clumsy mishmash of a comedy.

A good half hour too long, and badly in need of some scares, Hook is a huge party cake of a movie, with too much frosting. After the first delicious bite, sugar shock sets in.

"Peter Pan" redo has its moments with Hoffman and Williams.

muddled but fascinating

October 17, 2003
Also-ran Spielberg at best, a would-be blockbuster that no one likes at worst.
September 9, 2003
Who wants to spend over two hours with a Peter Pan who screams, 'Don't mess with me, I'm a lawyer!'

All Spielberg achieved is an impressive production design; in every other department, he's profoundly wasted talent, material, and time.
| Original Score: 1/5
May 20, 2003
Hook is overwhelmed by a screenplay heavy with complicated exposition, by what are, in effect, big busy nonsinging, nondancing production numbers and some contemporary cant about rearing children and the high price paid for success.

With all the money and talent and hype that went into this film, it should have been a lot better, but it is entertaining enough to rate a passing grade, especially for Robin Williams fans.

It should have been great but it just doesn't have enough magic dust to fly.
| Original Score: 2/5
September 18, 2002
Longo e cansativo, "Hook" Ú a prova de que o nome de Spielberg nem sempre implica em um bom filme de fantasia.
| Original Score: 2/5

Bottom of the barrel Spielbergiana
| Original Score: 2/5
August 13, 2002
Spielberg gives in to his worst tendencies, and turns Peter Pan into a day-glo mess.
| Original Score: 2/5
July 25, 2002
One of Spielberg's rare and true misfires. It's weirdly creepy when it's not being bombastically boring.
| Original Score: 2/5
May 12, 2001
No matter how much cash Hook earns, it will take more than pixie dust to fly this overstuffed package into our dreams.
January 1, 2000
Here we get the uncanny suspicion that Hook was written and directed according to the famous recipe of the country preacher who told the folks what he was going to tell them, told them, and then told them what he had told them.
