"What if Peter Pan grew up?"

U

  • Director: Steven Spielberg
  • Genre: Action & Adventure, Kids & Family, Science Fiction & Fantasy,
  • Studio: Amblin Entertainment
  • Duration: 160 Mins

Overview:
Purists will shudder at what Steven Spielberg has done to JM Barrie's classic tale here, but their protests are likely to be ignored by those children who prefer old-fashioned derring-do to be brightened up with some 1990s trimmings. In this take on Peter Pan, Robin Williams plays the grown-up Peter, a ruthless business pirate who has no time for his family and no memory of his magical past. That changes, however, when his children are kidnapped and he gets a visit from Tinkerbell (Julia Roberts). As good as Williams is, the film is stolen by an almost unrecognisable Dustin Hoffman, whose Hook is suitably pantomimic (he is said to have modelled his performance partly on the larger-than-life screen image of Terry-Thomas) yet oddly sympathetic, a villain lost without his nemesis. The scenes between him and Bob Hoskins as Smee are a delight and, although the sentimentality gets a little sticky at times, this remains rousing entertainment.
