Wow! I finally saw this after hearing so many good things about it, and I will say that I am very impressed. It should be recognized as a classic and not forgotten! Just like The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Tarzan, and Treasure Planet, Hercules is another Disney movie that time has over-shadowed. However, it is just as good as the classics. I loved the main characters, specifically Hercules, Meg, and Hades. They were probably the best among the cast, especially Meg. She and Herc make a great couple; I love them together! Plus, this movie is REALLY funny. Seriously, more humor than you'd expect. Also, the pacing was done very well. Although most of the songs come in the beginning (and can seem like an overdose), the movie progressed at a steady pace, making things interesting and having the scenes flow smoothly together. Although the CGI is NOTHING like what we have now and looks a bit dated, it doesn't take away too much to the overall essence of the film. Again, I say well done, Disney. Go watch this; it needs a larger fan base.

Loosely based on a bit of well-known Greek Mythology, our story opens with the sweet, baby Hercules (son of the Greek god, Zeus) being snatched from his cradle one night, high on Mount Olympus, by a pair of bungling henchmen sent by Hades (god of the Underworld), whose diabolical plan is to defeat and then, ultimately, overthrow Zeus._____ Due to Hercules unforseen circumstances he is left on Earth to be raised by mortal parents, yet, at the same time, he's able to retain his amazing, god-like strength._____ As an awkward teen Hercules discovers his immortal heritage. With plenty of help from his great pal Pegasus, the winged horse, Hercules quickly learns the way to becoming a famed hero as he battles hideous monsters sent by Hades._____ This pleasant, well-paced story (suited for the enjoyment of all ages) is nicely spiced with gags and songs.

Iv'e enjoyed this movie since i was young it shows you how much one the main hero hercules is trying to make a name for himself. but also how hard work and believing in yourself can go a really long way. It's a real action type film for those who love suspense and thrill.

(Meg) *upon meeting Hercules* SO...were you given a name along with all those rippling pectorals?
(Hercules) I...uh...um...*speechless* (Meg) *tightly smiles* Are you always this articulate?”
(Hercules) *finds his tongue* HERCULES!! *clears throat* My name is Hercules.
(Meg) *laughs* I think I prefer Wonder Boy.

(Meg) No chance, no way, I won't say it, no, no!
(Muses) You swoon, you sigh, why deny it, oh oh!
(Meg) It's too cliche, I won't say I'm in love!

Meg: "I'm a damsel. I'm in distress. I can handle this. Have a nice day."
