About the Movie

An outrageous odyssey of fun, fantasy, and adventure unfolds in the hilarious hit film Hercules. Taken from the gods as a newborn, adopted on earth, Hercules becomes an awkward teenage pillar of strength. Trying to fit in, he discovers his dad is Zeus and home is Mount Olympus -- if he can move from "zero" to true hero! Hercules teams with babyhood pal Pegasus, the flying stallion, and Phil -- a feisty personal trainer -- for the mission. But it's no easy task as he must match wits with Grecian beauty Meg and a comical hothead named Hades. With the help of Pain and Panic, Hades plans to rule the Universe with only Hercules standing in his way! With a bold animation style, colossal voice cast, and spectacular music, Hercules is unmatched in strength -- delivering something for everyone.

Customer Reviews

Great flick

Absolutely massive in production and worth the money. The James Woods villain is funny, the Danny DeVito character is hilarious, the story is real original though different from the original myth, definitely check this one out.

This movie is great

This movie is great, and fun. I love this movie a lot. I love all of the characters in this movie. Meg, and Hercules pet horse Pegises. Are all of my favorite characters in this movie. It is one of my all time favorite movies ever.

Humor, Heart & Hercules

If you liked the quick, rapid-fire humor of The Emperor's New Groove and Aladdin, you're sure to enjoy this stylish adventure as well. In addition, Hades is a fantastic villian and the songs are great. Like all Disney animation, don't watch Hercules expecting it to be true to the source material.
