Zero to Hero!
Bestowed with superhuman strength, a young mortal named Hercules sets out to prove himself a hero in the eyes of his father, the great god Zeus. Along with his friends Pegasus, a flying horse, and Phil, a personal trainer, Hercules is tricked by the hilarious, hotheaded villain Hades, who's plotting to take over Mount Olympus!
"I've got 24 hours to get rid of this bozo, or the entire scheme I've been setting up for 18 years goes up in smoke....AND YOU ARE WEARING HIS MERCHANDISE??????"
It's pretty disappointing that this is still the best Hercules movie I've seen, considering that it still isn't *great*. Is it seriously too much to ask for a historically-accurate Herc movie that doesn't make him a gladiator or turn him into Robin Hood?
Anyways, gotta focus on this movie. The songs are silly, the action is silly, James Woods hams the hell out of Hades (but it's a glorious performance). So it's all pretty silly...but it's fun which, right off the bat, is better than I can say about any Herc movie I've seen. One of Disney's lesser "animated classics", but still good enough.
"Two thumbs way, way up"
No, James Woods, not quite. Not quite.
Hercules is a film that doesn’t stray far from the Disney formula but what it lacks in surprises and originality it makes up for in its brisk pacing and breezy tone. Directed by the duo of Ron Clements and John Musker, two men heavily involved in the studio’s ‘90s renaissance, this is a stylish and brightly animated family film that gets by thanks to its relentless energy and charm.
Having practically exhausted every famous fairy tale it was only a matter of time before the house of mouse turned their attention to Greek mythology. Even with so many stories to choose from it is hardly surprising they chose the story of Hercules, not least because it is one of the…

I remember as a kid that Hercules used to be one of my all-time favorite Disney movies. There was some oomph of energy that was breezing by in my youth that made the film highly enjoyable and entertaining. But that was until I revisited the film in 2011, which I don't know if I was having a bad day or something, but something didn't click and I disregarded it as one of the worst Disney films ever made. Though Hercules is often regarded as the film that led to the slowly but surely downfall of the Disney Renaissance, after revisiting this odd film yet again, and looking at all their 90's hits in general, there's not…
Though "Hercules" can not compete with the best of Disney's late 20th century output, the Greek mythology-inspired hero quest is still a fun, funny, and animated-action-packed romp. Boasting top-notch songs and inspired designs, the film wrests with a token story and flimsy characters but still makes for an enjoyable and exciting animated fantasy.
John Musker and Ron Clements' take on the demigod finds the son of Zeus and, here, Hera wandering Greece with no knowledge as to his Olympian heritage. Soon, the young hero meets up with a helpful satyr, minions of Hades, and an adoring public as he embarks on a quest become Earth's greatest hero.
The story is a family-friendly rendering of the Hercules myth with a narrative…
First half of the movie was pretty weak....especially for a Disney Animated Movie. Second half was much better. The movie borrows heavily from other Disney movies as I saw parts of Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King and Mulan in Hercules. Music is average at best. Kept the kids entertained...but they did not want to watch the movie again when it went off....that is a bad sign in my house. Ranked 27th of 54 movies are my Disney Animation Cogerson Movie Score table. cogersonmoviescore.com/disney-animated-movies-best-to-worst.html
Review In A Nutshell:
There is a reason why John Musker and Ron Clements are my favourite directors from the Disney studio; they were the ones that brought life back in the studio’s feature animation, capturing the souls once again of its viewers, the same way that Walt Disney and his Nine Old Men were able to achieve in the studio’s initial prime. It all started with The Little Mermaid, Musker and Clements providing a modern take on the studio’s core values, a slow push of reality in the vein of its characters that audiences could finally find ease in relating to them and the journey, whether internal or physical, they embark on. The directors would move on to make…

Disney's take on Greek Mythology.
For that, the story of Hercules is chosen. It's told in a cheerful, adventurous way and although the story is very full, there are some great things in it. Hercules feels a bit rushed and because of that, the movie doesn't make a big impact and more importantly, the Disney magic is not really present here. There were some glimpses of that to be found though. Hercules and girlfriend Meg are maybe the most uninteresting couple in Disney history. But luckily we have characters as Phil and Hades who both are portrayed wonderfully by…
i relate to hades bc i, too, am angry and gay
Ganz lustig. Vor allem Hades ist cool. Insgesamt hatte ich den aber als besser in Erinnerung. Irgendwie sprang der Funke nicht ganz über. Und die Gospel-Musen gingen mir direkt tierisch auf die Klötze.
I hit 150 followers! That's so awesome thanks for all the support you guys are the best.
Acho maravilhoso a maneira como o filme consegue convergir diferentes culturas em cima de uma história conhecida, mesmo esta não sendo fiel à original. De Shakespeare a mitologia grega, de american way a até a fórmula consagrada das animações da Disney, é o tipo de filme que sabe muito bem como trabalhar tudo o que agrega a seu favor.
people should hop off frozen's dick and watch this instead
If you don't know how this works, ask a friend if Viagra is right for you.
