Hercules and Xena in spiritless animation., 31 May 2015
Author: OllieSuave-007 from California, USA

This is an animated spin-off from the two TV series featuring Hercules and Xena, where they, along with sidekicks Iolaus and Gabrielle, try to save Zeus, Aries, Artemis and Aphrodite on Mount Olympus from the Titans.

The story-line is somewhat average and less exciting than most episodes of the TV shows and the animation is very amateurish. There isn't much character development or chemistry among each of the cast members, but there are plenty of action - from the Hercules battling a dragon to Xena using her Chakram against a band of warlords, and from the Gods against the Titans to our heroes trying to save villagers caught in the middle of the feud.

The characters are voiced by the original actors from the TV shows, which gives the movie a more familiar feel and brings you back into the Hercules and Xena universe. That is what I think the best element of the movie as the voices helped maintain each of the characters' familiar personalities. A large part of the movie, though, suffers from limited suspense and spirit. I also personally would have liked to see Gabrielle, Iolaus and Aphrodite utilized more - they looked like they were just thrown in for good measure.

Overall, kids may like the movie, but true fans of the TV shows probably would be taken aback a little.
