Hercules (1997)

Wowingly taking their veritable animative storytelling prowess to mythological origins and one of history’s most fascinating world cultures, Disney finds legend in this epic, powerfully-scored, vividly-stylized depiction of Greek heroicism. 9.1/10.

Plot Synopsis: Hercules (Tate Donovan), a son of gods, was snatched as a baby by Hades (James Woods) and forced to live among mortals as a half-man, half-god. Now a teenager, Hercules needs to perform a rite of passage on Earth to prove himself worthy of living with the gods on Mount Olympus. With his plucky satyr sidekick, Philoctetes (Danny DeVito), along for the ride, Hercules must learn how to use his strength to defeat a series of evil creatures.
