Then he says "Here you are, Peter!", the angle swaps to a wide one where Peter is now in a lower position than the kid. Then back to the close-up and he is back to a higher position. The boy's hands are also always inconsistent between the front and side angles.

Continuity mistake: On the pirate ship, when the watch is first seen, the time jumps all over the place. First, it's 6:32. Then it's at 6:34, then jumps to 6:42, then 6:38. Then after Hook gets up to find the ticking, it's at 6:27, and when Smee picks it up, 6:44.

Continuity mistake: In the ship, the watch reads 6:44, but when they're in Hook's clock museum, they lay the watch down and it reads 2:14, seven and a half hours for a five minute walk.

Suggested correction: How is this a mistake? He had a sword hidden up his sleeve, and it was briefly visible. If there had been a shot inside the sleeve without the sword, that would be a mistake.

Answer: 1) Though it is never fully explained, the mystical way Peter Pan would come and go from Never land. 2) It was Smee who was doing the spying. When Hook asked Smee, "This can't be my great and worthy foe?" Smee replied, "I have all the information here." He had a file of paper work on Peter. 3) Hook knew where the Lost Boys were, When Peter asked, what happened to the Never Tree. Tinkerbell said, "Hook burned it when you didn't come back." He considered the Lost Boys not worth the effort. It was Peter, he wanted.
