Excerpt: Dwayne Johnson is continuing to prove his action status. If he stays the course he will eventually become an action icon. Hercules brings him back to some Scorpion King territory and it works like a charm. The movie is filled with some good action and a decent plot. All the performers hit their cue's and do what is needed to make this a fun flick.
Excerpt: This has always been one of my favorite 90's Disney animated film. I love the drawing style of the characters. The music is really fun and uplifting. Now onto Hercules finally on Blu ray. After it's only DVD release being non anamorphic. It's finally great seeing it crisp and clean looking in high def filling my entire HDTV. I think the picture quality is pretty amazing. Bold, bright colors. Crisp outlines of the animation.
Excerpt: Perfect marketing timing for Disney to release its version of the Hercules story just as The Rock dons his. But keeping it real is Disney's take on the son of Zues and Hera as he loses his powers after birth only to grow up attempting to reclaim them. He bumbles around but still manages to get the girl.....Disney's blu features a mid range PQ presentation with soft colors and little detail. Audio is a nice robust 5.1 DTS track.
Summary: I was more captivated by the set design, scenery, costumes. Here we have Hercules and his Tag Team outside the square having to fight the enemy not only outside their walls but also the enemy within their walls. Too much gore for my liking spoilt what would have been an enjoyable movie.
Summary: While you can admire Ratner's somewhat original take on the Hercules story, the way in which the trailer sold us the film had us believing that it was something that it was not. The mythical elements that lacked in the film ultimately let it down. It didn't help either that as an audience you're not really drawn to The Rock's Hercules or his cause.
Summary: Although lacking major bonus features, this underrated Disney classic looks brilliant on Bluray. Vibrant colours, catchy songs and unique style are some of the ingredients that will be loved by parents and children alike.
