4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Glen Koehn on Feb. 20 2005
Format: DVD
An unusually clever and satisfying movie, suitable for both children and literate adults. The plot is a Disney template: Hercules must discover his identity, learn the true nature of heroism, do his parents proud, and win the girl, all of which he achieves by an act of self sacrifice.
A run of the mill coming of age story, then, but several things make the film more than a boring rip-off of ancient themes. First, the drawing has an elegantly fresh look to it, with many witty visual references to Greek vase paintings, sculpture, architectural lines and so forth. There are also quite a few quips and puns for grownups (Thebes is the Big Olive, for example, its residents speaking in New York accents) including plenty of cute jokes about the classics. Pedants can enjoy cataloguing the allusions and "mistakes".
The music is pleasant, a lot of it sung by an updated "chorus" of gospel singers. Finally, the characters are vividly sketched, with Hades really stealing the show. Some of the animated figures amusingly caricature their real life voice actors. (See The Making Of supplement.) The rich background of the myths gives the story more depth and darkness than it would otherwise have.
Bottom line: appeals to a different audience than some Disney favorites, but a very smart production with many original aspects. Too much neglected.

I'm not going to say a whole lot about the movie itself because I want to discuss the DVD itself.

Hercules is a fun movie with some good animation, catchy songs, and lots of in-jokes and satire. I don't consider it a Disney classic, but I do recommend the movie for kids and adults.

The DVD version of it isn't exactly the best, but it does have some good special features. I always like watching the "Making of..." featurettes on DVDs (especially animated movies).

The quality of the film is more like movie theater quality than DVD, but I like it. All that's missing is a giant screen and a big sound system.

Overall, the movie is great and the DVD is pretty good. I say buy it if you get the chance.

Ok, its not anywhere close to the original tale of Hercules, and the anitmation is kind of odd, but who cares? this is a funny movie. The little jokes that kids wouldn't get crack me up, and so what if its not The Lion King or one of the other great Disney movies. Its fun, and thats about all i care about when I watch a movie.

Hercules is an older Disney animated movie from the late nineties which has garnered vastly different opinions on it's worth. And here's why..........

If you go into Hercules expecting another Tarzan or Hunchback of Notre Dame or Mulan; then you're probably going to be very disappointed as these are all Disney movies that tried to stay true and serious to their origins. That is NOT the case with Hercules! Don't expect a realistic depiction of the Gods of Olympus or even Greek mythology in general.

Instead this is a screwball comedy along the likes of Aladdin where the jokes come fast and furious, the plot is ridiculous, the characters are waaaaay over the top and the pratfalls never end. Think Broadway hits like "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" and you'll know what to expect! You want a serious look at Olympus, pick another movie.

So in this version of Forum, err....... Hercules, Hades (wonderfully voiced by James Woods) sends his minions to kill Hercules, they fail miserably and he grows up half-human with an adopted human family, a Satyr teacher named Phil (also wonderfully voiced by Danny DeVito) and his ever faithful flying horse Pegasus. Strong as a bull and about as bright as one, he's more glutz than hero. Then throw in everything from the Muses as basically Harlem gospel singers and his future love interest Meg, a world-weary con artist with an NYC accent you could cut with a knife and this is one rollicking comedy that's really going to irk those who take their Greek mythology seriously while leaving the rest of us rolling in the aisles.

So if you want a serious animated family movie like The Lion King or The Little Mermaid; then this movie is probably not for you. If instead you want an extremely funny, screwball animated family movie; then this one is definitely for you! 3 stars for those who like them serious, 4 stars for those who want something lighter. 3-1/2 stars overall.

Being of Hellenic (Greek) Origin, and a Planetary Scientist/Cartographer, who has officially submitted Names to the I.A.U. for Planetary Surface Nomenclature from Various Cultures of the World, I Must Say That the HERCULES Animated DVD is a Good Way to Introduce Children to Understanding the Serious and Humorous Natures of the Human Spirit. It has Value in that it supports Children to Develop Courage, High Self-Esteem, A Will to Loath Failure and Replace It With Self-Responsibility for a Successful and Prosperous Future.
It Teaches Girls What the Qualities of Male Loyalty, Patience, and Courageous Deeds can Accomplish in a Girl's Life, and What to Look for In A Serious Man, and It Teaches Boys What Real Love and Devotion towards A Girl of His Heart Should Really Be "By his Actions for Her", Rather Than "By His Words to Her".
I Don't Rate Anything In Life As Perfect, As Everything In The Universe Is Eternal And Continuously Changing.......
.....But This One Gets a 9 Out of 10 from a Very Ethical, Moral, Serious and Very Analytical Scientist of Spartan Warrior Origin.

"One Word Frees Us of all the weight and pain of life:
That word is LOVE."

Sophocles (c.496-406 BC)

"And ever has it been known that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation".

Khalil Gibran (1883-1931)
