“Oh, I hate being disappointed, Smee. And I hate living in this flawed body. And I hate living in Neverland. And I hate… I hate… I *hate* Peter Pan!” Captain Hook yelled at Smee!
What a fun romp into the fantasy world of Captain Hook and Peter Pan! This movie Hook, is probably the best iteration of the Peter Pan story that I have seen besides the Mini Series on the Sci Fi channel called Neverland.
Many people are very down about this film, mainly because Robin Williams played an adult Peter Pan. People need to realize this is a fantasy film and its a better iteration even than the recent movie Pan from 2016.
The film was directed by Steven Spielberg and the soundtrack was composed of course by the ever talented John Williams.
Here is the basic plot…Granny Wendy Darling played by Maggie Grace, must convince the middle-aged lawyer, Peter Banning played by Robin Williams, that he was once the legendary Peter Pan. And so the adventure begins anew, with Peter off to Neverland to save his two children from Captain Hook played by Dustin Hoffman. Along the way, he rediscovers the power of imagination, of friendship, and of magic. Some of the actors include Julia Roberts, Bob Hoskins, and many others.
This is again one of the best Fantasy films with an equally fantastic score!
