Watch: The Real Rufio Reprises His Role in a “Homemade” Recreation of the Fight Scene from HOOK

     February 27, 2014


Every generation has a handful of films that, despite tepid critical reception or general audience dismissal, strike a chord with a particular age group.  For me, one of those films is Hook.  Upon its release, director Steven Spielberg’s 1991 fantasy adventure pic drew harshly negative reviews from critics and failed to become the box office smash that the studio was hoping for—though Spielberg rebounded with the one-two punch of Jurassic Park and Schindler’s List as his follow-ups.  Nevertheless, a pre-adolescent Adam was absolutely enamored with Hook.  I bought the soundtrack, owned the Rufio sword, wore out the action figures, and I went as Peter for Halloween more times than was appropriate.  Subsequently, a new “sweded” version of the film has landed online courtesy of Cinefix, and fellow fans of the film will be quite pleased to hear that it features Rufio himself, Dante Basco, reprising his role from the movie.  Bangarang!

Hit the jump to take a look at Hook sweded.
