Mercury, the winged messenger, drops his sandals off with a centaur to be repaired. The centaur, who has coveted wings to the extent that he's used a couple ducks to help him fly, takes the sandals for a spin, and fails to finish the repair job on time. Mercury returns; in a panic, the centaur strips the wings from a couple birds and nails them to some plain sandals, but Mercury is not fooled. He turns the centaur into a pretzel. Written by

There are so many characters in Greek mythology and there are so many stories that can be pictured.
In "It's a Greek Life", the main character is a clobber Centaur (a half-man, half-horse creature) who dreams of flying after seeing Pegasus in the sky. He's ordered by Mercury to polish his flying sandals before his rendezvous with Venus (a confusion because Venus is a Roman goddess). Evidently, the Centaur tries to profit from the sandals, so he could fly with them. Unfortunately, he's not able to control the sandals and his excursion becomes very hazardous.
What I liked the most are the characters. Especially Mercury. In other movies and cartoons, he's usually designed as a young, almost teenager god. So it's good to see a different kind of Mercury.
The graphics are fair. The statues are well drawn and well animated, according to the situation. The plot is very good too.
