Hook sets out to put a comedic turn on the classic tale of Peter Pan, and in the process, it delivers a strong message about the importance of family bonds in the process.
Robin Williams is the lead character and the success of the movie hangs on his shoulders. As always, he's up to the task by bringing his signature energy and humor.
Since every hero needs a villain, Dustin Hoffman fills the role of the title character: Captain James Hook. Never having forgiven Peter for chopping off his hand and feeding it to the crocodile, he's seeking his revenge by kidnapping Peter's children, unaware that Peter has no idea that he used to be the boy who would never grow up.
Peter has indeed grown up. He's become a workaholic that makes empty promises to his wife and kids, especially his son, who just wants his dad at his baseball game. Fortunately for Peter, he has Tinkerbell to take him back to Neverland and the Lost Boys, who are eager to have Peter back again.
The final battle is at once filled with swashbuckling action and comedy and everything comes to a very satisfying conclusion. This movie is a great family experience!
