Hercules Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

No need to brace for bad news. Yes, Hercules' 1080p/AVC-encoded video presentation exhibits some of the same issues that plague Tarzan's problematic presentation. Comb through the screenshots accompanying this review and you'll find instances of minor aliasing, macroblocking and banding. However, each issue is less prevalent and, more importantly, far less noticeable in Hercules than it is in Tarzan, making for a more rewarding, expectation-meeting viewing experience. In fact, most viewers won't catch sight of anything wrong unless they dig through screenshots, which tells you just how difficult it is to spot the vast majority of the anomalies in motion on a properly calibrated display. So on to the undisputed good news. Color and contrast are strong and stable, primaries have plenty of punch and black levels are deep. Detail is excellent too, with sharply defined line art, crisp background clarity and very, very little that hinders or interferes with the integrity of the animation. (The film's CG elements are prone to more obvious aliasing, but those particular instances trace back to the source animation, not Disney's encode.) All told, Hercules looks great. It's not perfect, but it's also not as imperfect as Tarzan. Splitting hairs, I know, but there it is.


Hercules Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Hercules flexes some muscle thanks to a terrific DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that throws its weight and might behind the film's action and adventure. LFE output is bold and brawny, with enough power and presence to render giants gigantic, titans titanic and monsters monstrous. Rear speaker activity is engaging and energetic, creating a full, immersive soundfield packed with impish directional effects, sly pans and impressive dynamics. Dialogue doesn't disappoint either. Voices are clean and clear at all times, prioritization is spot on, and no amount of chaos, music or unruly hijinks overwhelm or disrupt the precision-crafted six-channel fun.
