What it all is, really, is a glorious Spielbergian essay on the value, in gold doubloons, of rampant sentimentality.

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.
March 25, 2019
Although the sentimentality gets a little sticky at times, this remains rousing entertainment.

You just have to appreciate its creative angle toward Peter Pan and his world.

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.

Big, splashy, energetic, one-size-fits-all Hollywood entertainment.

It's worth a look. But overall, Hook feels like an exercise in cynicism.

The movie is a strong reminder of the freedom of youth and the quest for pure adventure, one that looks to the stars and sees the possibilities are as bright as a child's own imagination.

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

March 26, 2019
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.

Unhappily, however, the transformation of a Type A American lawyer into a boy wonder unfolds with an uncertainty and clumsiness atypical of Spielberg.
