Movie Reviews:

  • r96sk: The definition of a meh film, at least for me.

    ‘Hercules’ doesn’t stick a connection, I felt very unfulfilled throughout. I have little negatives, yet there isn’t much the other way either. I like the cast, but that’s honestly about it.

    James Woods, Danny DeVito and Rip Torn all give noteworthy performances in the roles of Hades, Phil and Zeus. However, Tate Donovan as the titular character is forgettable, as is Roger Bart’s voice when Hercules sings.

    Bart isn’t helped by the very average music, none of which is memorable to me. The plot is mild, one that is quite easy to predict and doesn’t produce any thrilling moments. The animation is actually OK, satisfactory for sure.

    I can see this is very well rated by others, which I respect. For me, though, it isn’t any good.
