Claysaba Excellent, Without a doubt!!
ThedevilChoose When a movie has you begging for it to end not even half way through it's pure crap. We've all seen this movie and this characters millions of times, nothing new in it. Don't waste your time.
Portia Hilton Blistering performances.
Kirpianuscus After two decades, it remains one of the most seductive and provocative Disney film. for the humor for adults. for the adventures for kids. for the flavvor of "40-"50 musicals. for Hades . and, especially, for Megara. sure, the classic Greek mythology is the lead victim. but, after 20 years of innovation and so many blockbursters ignoring the accuracy of tradition, maybe, that is not a real significant sin. one of motifs - it has the innocence who is rare in present animation. it has the right dose of fun and challenge, a not complex story but one who preserves the flavor of old fashion fairy tales. and that is a profound good aspect. because it gives the right state of joy. and unique childhood emotion.
meghnasri-97601 Hercules is 1997 animated feature film. James wood is a fine actor but this one of his childish movies. The movie has some great animation, the songs are quite good and story is ok. But the problem is that the movie is for what kinds like but some people will like it too including the critics. The only memorable character is Hades who portrays a villain in the movie. Hercules is good but not as good as earlier films such as the lion king and not a great one. I saw another movie the other day which was Face/off and guess what. It was more great than this. At least this movie is not bad
sarkersiam2 Watching a superhero is always cool. I like the way he fights and the humour is hilarious.And the way story turns is really good. The music is very delightful, love the way they sing. The thing I like first when he's among normal people and he had super strength. Everything he does was an abnormal behaviour to them, looks like a freak to people. so he runs out to find himself. But I think he had to find out what he is by himself.
Filipe Neto This film tells the story of Hercules, a bastard son of the Greek god Zeus, whom immortality is stolen and, therefore, is given to humans to be created, becoming a hero thanks to his impressive strength. Directed by John Musker and Ron Clements, who also ensure the writing of the script, the film has excellent designs, a good cast of voice actors and musical pieces by Alan Menken.Despite all the efforts in merchandising, this movie is not the best that Disney has presented. First, the script is nothing more than an adaptation, too free and imaginative, of a classic legend, much publicized in mythology. The film does not tell the whole tale, preferring to create a new story with some of the elements found in myth, ignoring everything that does not fit the intention of making a film for children. One of the most interesting and comical characters is Phil, a chubby faun who becomes coach and friend of Hercules. At times, he steals the attention of the Greek hero. The way the film puts the nine Muses (as Soul singers and narrators of the story) does not convinced nor pleased. More interesting was Meg, a character who exemplifies the way the ancient Greeks regarded the woman, a beautiful thing, but bad and that could be dangerous.In any case, this film is still good, deserve to be seen and appreciated for what it is
