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.

One of Spielberg's rare and true misfires. It's weirdly creepy when it's not being bombastically boring.
| Original Score: 2/5

Spielberg gives in to his worst tendencies, and turns Peter Pan into a day-glo mess.
| Original Score: 2/5

All Spielberg achieved is an impressive production design; in every other department, he's profoundly wasted talent, material, and time.
| Original Score: 1/5

Longo e cansativo, "Hook" Ú a prova de que o nome de Spielberg nem sempre implica em um bom filme de fantasia.

The exposition is so underlined and re-underlined, you could teach yourself to fly waiting for something to happen.

No matter how much cash Hook earns, it will take more than pixie dust to fly this overstuffed package into our dreams.

Who wants to spend over two hours with a Peter Pan who screams, 'Don't mess with me, I'm a lawyer!'

Also-ran Spielberg at best, a would-be blockbuster that no one likes at worst.

It should have been great but it just doesn't have enough magic dust to fly.

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
