-- Buoyantly animated tale about the ancient Greek hero of the title (voice of Tate Donovan) who is kidnapped from Mt. Olympus as a baby and raised as a mere mortal until, with a little help from a wise-cracking teacher (voice of Danny De Vito), he proves himself a true hero by rescuing a damsel (voice of Susan Egan) from the fiery god of the underworld (voice of James Woods). Co-directed by John Musker and Ron Clements, the colorful adventure is a music-filled celebration of today's pop culture, using toga-clad figures from a mythological past, but tainting the fun midway is a shamelessly blatant plug for Disney products. A few scenes of menace may frighten toddlers. (A-I) (G)
