Disney animated adventure featuring the voice talents of Tate Donovan, Danny DeVito and James Woods. In an attempt to prove himself in the eyes of his father Zeus (Rip Torn), Hercules (Donovan) sets out on a series of adventures with Pegasus the flying horse and Phil (DeVito) his personal trainer. However, hot-headed Hades (Woods) tries to scupper Hercules' plans in a bid to take over Mount Olympus, a move which forces Hercules to decide between his legendary strength and the love of his life, Meg (Susan Egan).
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.

Of course liberties have been taken with Greek mythology. The dysfunctional Olympian family has been cleaned up (No more Zeus having affairs or Hera trying to kill people) and the story has little in it of the original Greek legend. Instead, it's really an archetype, a modern retelling of all the Greek legends at once. Appearances are made by the Muses, the Hydra, satyrs, the Fates, Pegasus, the Titans, Narcissus, and of course all of the Olympian gods. Scholars may take offense, but since legends evolve and are to be taken with a grain of salt anyway, I didn't have a problem with it.
Soundtrack is great. Most of the times I just play this movie at the same time I'm working on my illustrations or something else. I must have seen it more than 100 times.
Art: the animators and artists were able to put as much greek style as possible in it. Great character design.
Story: Fun epic adventure. I loved to watch Hercules from a boy to an adult. The villain is hillarious with his anger management problems.
So in effect the image is encased in a big fat black frame.
The problem can be solved by zooming in by 2x.
However inevitably this involves a 50% reduction in the image quality.
Better to pay an extra £3 for the blu ray so have requested refund and will order that instead.
The film all carries a deeper message about growing up, dealing with fame, finding your place in the world and belonging. It features young Hercules who has grown up in Greece, but always felt like he does not belong. His 'parents' reveal that he s not, in fact, their son and they found him one day wearing a medal with a symbol of the Gods on him. With his super-human strength Hercules sets out on a voyage of discovery.
With wonderful Disney animation, a good script, great characters and all the good elements of children's films, comedy and great musical numbers what's not to love?
My DVD arrived and I watched it the same day because I hadn't seen it for years and I needed a good laugh.
