One of [Disney's] more unique and outside the box animated adaptations.

'Hercules' may be second-tier Disney, but it's TOP second tier, not far behind the studio's best animated work.

[Blu-ray Review] Isn't one of the Mouse House's absolute best, but it is an astutely written entertainment with a keen aesthetic sense and a fun ensemble of characters. For Disney collectors, picking "Hercules" up is a no-brainer. Highly recommended.

...compiles pop-culture references and genre tropes that are not only crudely envisioned, but often downright contradictory to the story at hand.

December 2, 2009
The most flat-out childish film of the Disney Renaissance: this is both its great triumph and ultimately the reason that it's so hard to care about it all that much.

[An] insipid, lifeless, animated feature.
October 18, 2008
Chock-full of celeb cameos, puns and contemporary camp, the movie is annoyingly hip.
October 18, 2008
Amusing, yes. Fluffy, definitely. But with no more staying power than those Hercules action figures that were already resigned to Odd-Lot by last Christmas.
September 1, 2008
This is a bright movie, in both senses of the word.
September 1, 2008
Prepare to spend the summer stepping on plastic satyrs and winged horses.

It's a winning tall tale, cleverly told and wonderfully voiced...
September 1, 2008
Scarfe's pointed faces are smoothed out to a drab degree, yet not so they become characters as warm as Disney is capable of.
February 9, 2006
Another benchmark achievement for the Aladdin team of Musker and Clements.
April 9, 2005
One of the best of the modern Disney animation efforts to date.

Remind one of My Little Pony...mental pictures of all the plastic "Hercules" toys that soon will be littering floors and crippling barefoot adults.

July 15, 2003
while all the customary ingredients are at hand -- the dreamy hero, the curvaceous heroine, the comic sidekick, the smarmy villain -- the magic is missing this time out. ...a minor addition to the Disney pantheon.
May 20, 2003
Disney's 35th animated feature may be based on a timeless tale, but it's no classic.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
November 7, 2002
It entertained me much more than I thought it would.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 15, 2002
The animation is kinetic and witty; computer effects are integrated to good effect without overwhelming the hand-drawn figures.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

Hercules fires off mythology in-jokes and pop culture references at a speed that would dizzy the Animaniacs.
