From Amazon.co.uk

Not the egregious foul it seemed to be in cinemas, Disney's Hercules (1997) stands up as an entertaining spritzer of an animated feature. The continual peppering of in-jokes and cultural references becomes less irksome on the small screen. That there is no majesty or awe invested in the beloved Greek legends also seems less of an error. Also on the plus side is the bounciest Alan Menken music since Little Shop of Horrors. With Zeus's blood in his veins, young Hercules's amazing strength makes him an outcast (sorry, that still doesn't fly), so he trains with a satyr named Phil to become a hero. Along the way Herc meets Meg, a common mortal who falls hard for him. They are both against the jocular Hades, who has to destroy Hercules to take over Olympus. The hydra is the computer-animated set piece for this little number, a no-chance attempt to beat that wildebeest herd from The Lion King. --Keith Simanton

Synopsis

Hercules is a rollicking, tongue-in-cheek Disney film based on the Greek myth. Forget those legendary labours--this teenage Herc is the goofy and lovable adopted scion of mortal parents, toiling on earth to prove himself to Zeus, his Olympian dad. His demi-god gifts score him money, fame, and product endorsements, but he can't attain full deity (or "True Hero") status--and defeat a jealous Hades--without the help of his satyr friend, Phil, and the true love of beautiful Megara. This entertaining animated fantasy features the voices of Tate Donovan, Danny DeVito, James Woods, and more.

For the young, or simply the young at heart, the coming of Disney classics to DVD is something that is eagerly anticipated - and in this respect Hercules is no exception. In the spirit of Disney, the typical inaccuracies can be overlooked during an action-packed adventure. This movie is worth it alone for the hilarious antics of Pain and Panic, along with the stylish villany of Hades. A not-your-typical Disney heroine is also to be celebrated in the form of Meg. All this coupled with the usual Disney package of great tunes and brilliant animation makes this a classic to make any Disney fans' collection complete!

The suspect animation in this Disney movie is soon forgotten as you start to believe that slapstick is the order of the day - or so critics would have you believe.
Having produced film after film of 'classics' like Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid, Disney dared to be different with this installment and it has clearly paid off. The film launches into song, in a colourful introduction by the feisty Fates, who guide you throughout the story, providing helpful and sardonically amusing recaps at times when you're just about to lose the plot.
The villian, Hades, is a sarcastic, Hollywood-style baddie, a role that would be out of place in Disney films normally but which fits in a treat here.
The story is a touch optimistic, stretching to the boundaries of credibility to accommodate a group of nasty giants to add a punch at the end, and a family of pink and purple Gods living on Mount Olympus.
The music is the movie's jewel in the crown - every song is a winner, every lyric is memorable, and they carry an energy to them that propels the film along and makes the characters even more interesting.
Where Disney really pulls no punches, however, is in the heart of this film. The story, from start to finish, is a touching, often moving one, a mixture of fantasy action and love, which never becomes too sentimental or sickly sweet...though they might try and paint over it with trendy animation and upbeat characters, Disney's well earned success is still with the kind of stories which touch the heart, and this one does just that.

And That's The Gospel Truth.

I'm a big fan of all the Disney movies. The Disney Corporation has for just under a century, entertained generations with their loveable, funny and downright memorable characters and films. Historically, most people will prefer the old Disney film to the modern movies, but there's no doubting they still have their place.

Hercules was released during the rebirth of Disney ignited by the entirely computer animated Toy Story thanks to its collaboration with Pixar. You will be forgiven for thinking that Disney may have taken a bit of a step back reverting to the traditional hand drawn animation, but I'm sure there's a reason for that and it isn't entirely in 2D drawn animation. This particular movie was part of the Disney renaissance in which Disney reverted back to its classic ways of making movies based on classic characters and stories. Along with Hercules, other films in the Disney Renaissance were The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast and Mulan amongst others.

The plot tells of the ancient Greek myth of son of Zeus, Hercules, half God and half mortal. On his birth, the bitter and evil brother of Zeus, Hades lord of the Underworld is forging a plan to become ruler of all the Gods. He is approached by the fates who tell him that he will win in his plan as long as Hercules does not interfere. Because of this, Hades sends his stupid minions, pain and panic, to kidnap baby Hercules and feed him a potion that will turn him mortal, once he's mortal the plan is then to kill him. All does not go according to plan as Hercules doesn't drink every last drop of the potion and playfully disposes of pain and panic. Alone and stranded on Earth, Hercules is adopted to be brought up as a mortal.

Hades - in my opinion one of the better disney villans of late. Evil, yet hilariously funny at times. At the end, you kind of feel sorry for the poor guy. James Woods voices him perfectly. And besides, how can you resist someone who has flames for hair! The rest of the cast are just as good. Hercules isn't quite as annoying as most Disney heros, and neither is Meg (the female lead, who has a very refreshing attitude - especially when dealing with Hades) In all, this movie is great, and I recommend it to everyone! It's just a shame that it's so under-rated.

As a family of five, there are few films which we all really enjoy, but this is one of them. It has excellent songs & music throughout, a good storyline & excellent humour (from slapstick for the little ones, to more subtle lines for the sophisticated amongst us). Our 8 year old daughter hates most Disney films on the basis that they are far too girly & slushy, but loves Hercules. Our 5 year old daughter lives in a pink haze of Disney princess magic, and loves Meg & the muses & laughs a lot while watching this film. Our 2 year old daughter loves Lord of the Rings, Monsters inc & this ! I have to say, my husband & I are always very happy when this film is selected, as we particulaly love both the humour & the music. All in all, I can't fault it - we think it's GREAT !!!!!!
