  • Excerpt: With the success of Game of Thrones , Hollywood executives got confused and thought audiences still wanted cheesy, 1980's era sword-and-saddles action movies. Even after the epic failure that was the Conan the Barabrian reboot, they still didn't get it. So now there's Hercules , which is as dumb as you'd expect but not nearly as bad as you’ve heard. Dwayne Johnson stars as the title character, and if anyone was born to play Hercules, it's Arnold. Er, and Dwayne Johnson.

  • Conclusion: Disney's Hercules has never looked or sounded better than it does on Blu-ray. That's great news for those wanting to own this charming musical comedy in the best quality available. Regrettably, though, this lightweight platter represents a major missed opportunity to surround this popular film with more substantial bonus material, even something readily available like an episode of the TV series.

Hercules Blu-ray Review

7 August 2014
  • Conclusion: Hercules isn't a tried and true classic's classic, but it's a light, breezy adventure with just enough heart, humor and weight to keep it grounded. Disney's Blu-ray release is better, at least in terms of its AV presentation. The supplemental package is much too short -- and oooold at this point -- but the film's video presentation impresses, standing tall despite a few flaws, and its DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track hits hard, proving itself a hero long before...

  • Excerpt: It's no surprise that Evan Spiliotopoulos, the veteran of Hercules 's two credited screenwriters, has made a career out of penning direct-to-video Disney titles, as this sorry excuse for a summer spectacle—PG-13-friendly levels of gore and sexuality and a singular F-bomb notwithstanding—appears to have been scripted with undemanding toddlers in mind.

  • Excerpt: Oh, Dwayne Johnson. What are we going to do with you? No, seriously, what do we do with a musclebound superstar with a great smile and hulking biceps? The amateur moviemaker within us says, “A lot,” but Hollywood hasn't seem to have gotten the message. And now, Johnson is Hercules , a role perfectly suited for his doorway-darkening physicality and PG-rated sensuality. Except that's not the Hercules we're dealing with. No, this Hercules has issues .
