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

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.

    Hook is one of my favorite movies. The soundtrack is my favorite of John Williams. Can Goldberg put out a review of Hook?

    Hate? Haters? Just because someone doesn’t like something that you like doesn’t make them a hater.

    Great soundtrack though, one of John Williams best and I’d argue the last really great one he did (some decent ones after that but nothing I’d consider a grand slam like his work on Hook).
