Hook is presented on 4K UHD courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment with a 2160p transfer in 2.40:1. Take a deep breath when the Tri Star logo appears, because it looks pretty rough, with a kind of swarm like, yellowish grainfield, but once the film starts things improve materially. There are still some fairly wide variances in grain resolution, not necessarily linked to the film's many opticals, but overall things resolve really beautifully, with a natural, organic appearance that provides a nice texture and depth. A few kind of odd looking moments crop up every now and again, as in the brief shot of the Pan Am jet circa 6:10, where grain suddenly spikes pretty dramatically. Detail levels are noticeably improved throughout the presentation, especially in close-ups. Two in particular are almost astounding in the new levels of detail, and they both feature faces — the first is when Peter awakens in the pirate hideaway and his eye is seen through a tear in some fabric, and later in the film there's a kind of "mirroring" sequence featuring an immense close-up of Hook's face (and mustache), with both of these moments offering really impressive levels of fine detail.
