Hook (1991)

2h 22m / PG / Adventure

When his young children are abducted by his old nemesis, Capt. Hook (Dustin Hoffman), middle-aged lawyer Peter Banning (Robin Williams) returns to his magical origins as Peter Pan. Peter must revisit a foggy past in which he abandoned Neverland for family life, leaving Tinkerbell (Julia Roberts) and the Lost Boys to fend for themselves. Given their bitterness toward Peter for growing up — and their allegiance to their new leader, Rufio — the old gang may not be happy to see him.

It’s shocking in hindsight that it took this long for somebody to make Peter Pan 2. And while Hook can’t surpass the classic original tale (what sequel can?), director Steven Spielberg certainly found a compelling way to follow it. It’s still a bizarre, chaotic, marvelous fantasia, packed with surprising performances about what we leave behind when we grow up, and how to stay in touch with the magic of childhood.
