5.0 out of 5 stars A more recent Walt Disney classic, 21 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Hercules [DVD] [1997] (DVD)
Feeling nostalgic, I decided to buy a few of the Walt Disney films that I loved as a kid, including 'Hercules'. If anything, I found myself enjoying it even more now that I'm older.

This is a film that can appeal to both children and adults alike. A witty and charming tale set in Greek Mythology (it may not always stay true to it but who cares?), it follows the life of Hercules, the son of Zeuz who is kidnapped as a baby by his evil uncle Hades' minions Pain and Panic who feed him a drink to turn him mortal. He is taken in by an older farming couple who raise him as their own, when he is older, he discovers who his real father is and sets out to prove himself a hero so he can regain his god-hood and join his family. Although he is trained by Phil, a goat who is famed for training heroes of the past, Hades' schemes ensure that it won't be an easy ride.

There is much to love about this film, most of the characters (even the villains) are likable and entertaining, the songs are all catchy and memorable and the ending is quite emotional. I regard this as one of the best Walt Disney's films of the last twenty years, and is sure worth having in any DVD collection.

Now, how long do we have to wait for the 'Hercules' TV series that I also loved as a kid to be released on DVD?
