Dustin Hoffman. End of. I mean, don't get me wrong I LOVED Jason Isaacs because he was so sinister and evil, and yet sometimes comical, but Dustin was THE Hook. He was basically the Hook we all grew up with (i.e The Disney's Hook, Hans Conried . )And that's the Hook we preferred - the comical and evil, seducing pirate captain. He totally showed the confidence and the cocky side of Hook without being too up himself. I think Jason may have been too cocky with his character (although i do love his sheer joy of when he's bringing down Peters happiness when fighting him). Aswell as this Dustin had the evil side AND the comical side to him, whereas Jason was too sinister and dark and didn't really have enough of comical side and wasn't very cocky, like Dustin and the Disney's one had. Dustin also has the pirate side with the gentlemanly side to him added, which Hook was. A pirate, but a gentlemanly pirate nonetheless. The voice and accent also was JUST like the Disney's too. Which is always music to my ears when i hear his posh, gentleman, nasally accent. Jason had no faults with his voice, i'm not gonna criticize. The look of Dustin's Hook, was (was??..IS!) IS amazing. He's so elegant and when you see the look of him, you KNOW who's Captain, and i did like Jason's look, it was just too modern (although he did look sexy) and it wasn't as elegant as Dustin's. I LOVE Dustin's hat aswell, it does make him look bad-*** but elegant and in "Good form" as he should.
The laugh is amazing too, it was so full of joy and still quite evil, it was so apathetic, where as Jason's is subtle and sinister. Dustin really showed how lonely he was too. i know Jason's one showed sadness and loneliness but Dustin's showed he was SOOO lonely and felt worthless that he tried to kill himself, which really shows a more in-depth look of the character. The hatred he had for Peter was perfect too. Jason showed hatred, but i think he had so much hatred, you kind of think he's being a bit dramatically angry with peter, just for cutting off his hand! Basically Dustin's way of talking, acting, laughing, seducing, was just like the Hook we knew in childhood..and that's the Hook we all come to know and love. he was a charming, comical but vengeful pirate with the gentlemanly side to him that had pure hatred towards peter, but totally depended on Smee. Which i think Dustin Hoffman's obviously does! (I prefer Bob Hoskins as Smee, rather than Richard Briers). there was a more of the Disney's relationship of Smee and Hook on "Hook" which there isn't really on 2003's Peter Pan. Hook needed Smee there and Smee WAS there for him, which i don't think Richard Briers did on Peter Pan. SOOOO Yeah, i'm going to shut up and let other people show their opinions :)
Dustin all the way! P.S - We all know Jason Isaacs Hook is gorgeous...but i think Dustin's is rather sexy ( I know you may think i'm weird for thinking that). Theres just something about his Hook that is rather alluring. alot of people have said they've had a crush on Hook (the Disney one) which i did when i was young, i have to admit. I think thats another thing about Captain Hook, he's the alpha male and he is a bit of a stud :) he's rough and ready and most important of all BAD and thats a turn on for us girls. But yeah, i think Dustins Hook is rather gorgeous ( I don't know why, theres just something about him...I mean Dustin is rather sexy for his age) There's just a charming side to Dustin's Hook and Hook's character IS charming and seductive, which Dustin DEFINATLEY shows. more charming than Jason's. I do love Jason's though, i have to admit. I just think Dustin hit the nail on the head with his portrayal of the character :)
Right, i'm going to shut up now xD
