wow, the movie is amazing

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.

Unique visuals and a great villain steal the show.

I must say that after watching this childhood time-stealer, I found it a little underdeveloped. Hades and his sidekicks pain and panic have become more entertaining over the years while Hercules, Zeus and Megara have worn out a little. Mostly Herc whose conflict is as generic as can be.

The visual style is unique to put it neutrally. I personally think it is the ugliest of the Disney renaissance era, but that's not the main problem with this movie. Its uninteresting characters are the problem as I stated in the beginning. Hades makes this movie worth watching and he gets a laugh out of me every time he is on screen and that is great.

Despite its problems it has spawned one of my favorite Disney songs, though. "I Won't Say I'm In Love" is a really catchy tune and along with "Go The Distance" the most memorable songs in the movie.

Maybe Hercules' unique visual style and the standout performance of James Woods as Hades serves in its favor to make it memorable. Just the weirdness of it in general.

One of my least favorite movies from the Disney renaissance, but I can appreciate its existence.

get him to the Greek

I should admit that I've never read the original Greek myth. It was obvious that Disney was going to take more than a few liberties with their adaptation. What I liked more than anything were the pop culture references (i.e., Midnight Cowboy). I guess that like a lot of Disney's movies from the past 20 to 25 years, "Hercules" is all about giving the tykes something to find cool while the adults can laugh at the pop culture references. Having the muses narrate the story like a gospel song gave it an interesting dimension, as did the depiction of Megara as a femme fatale. And you gotta love Danny DeVito's over-the-top performance as a manic Philoctetes.

Anyway, it's not any sort of masterpiece, but enjoyable enough for its length. Among the other cast members are Paul Shaffer (David Letterman's bandleader), Frank Welker (Fred on "Scooby Doo" and Ray on "The Real Ghostbusters"), Amanda Plummer (Honeybunch in "Pulp Fiction") and Charlton Heston (who else but the king of sword-and-sandal epics could give the opening narration?).
