'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.

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.

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

The animation is kinetic and witty; computer effects are integrated to good effect without overwhelming the hand-drawn figures.

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

Woods as the ever-exasperated Hades is the comic highlight, bringing an acrid wit to the proceedings, thereby balancing out some of the over-the-top feel-good elements indigenous to the genre.

Light on its feet and continually amusing, this free-spirited show-biz version of Greek mythology ranks with the best of modern Disney animation.
