Frequently bought together
Customers who viewed this item also viewed
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.
From the manufacturer
While his strength is well above average, Hercules isn't all that intelligent. But what the hero lacks in outstanding brains, he makes up for in compassion and the desire to do good, which is especially appreciated in a world with constant turmoil around every corner, be it by the hands of a demon or beast, or The Lord of the Dead himself, Hades.
Meg is a free-spirited, independent, and quick-witted woman who is also hurt and bitter due to having her heart broken by her boyfriend in the past.
Zeus prefers to keep things easy going and is often seen with a large smile and a witty remark on things.

Now that I have a good copy, I can tell you this Blu-ray is the same as the US version of it, but includes more languages like Catalan.
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.
Extras: Making of (approx. 9 mins) and Ricky Martin's 'Go the Distance' Music video (in Spanish).

I'm happy to say that the picture quality does not disappoint, Hercules has never looked better! This is the release to go for. Unfortunatley, considering Hercules is one of Disney's black sheeps, the bonus features are the ones from the old DVD, and they're not that great. Making-of featurette, clip video, karaoke, with bad picture quality. When you think about it, it may be the best we get for Hercules, ever. Considering I'm buying it for the movie and nothing else, I'm cool with that.
But to be honest, I'm still giving the blu-ray 5 stars, the picture quality is GREAT, the sound is good too.
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?
