Hercules – What is the measure of a true hero?

Long ago, far away land of ancient Greece, there was a golden age of powerful gods and extraordinary heroes. And the biggest and strongest of all these heroes was the great Hercules. But what is the measure of a true hero? Ah, this is what our story … "

Fables fashionable, no doubt about it. The film, the world is saved in the 21st century superhero few times a day, because neither the futuristic . technology and astonishing powers of

However, for me at Disney "Hercules" is the best film in this genre ever: it is based on the only film in Greek mythology – gods among them the timeless tales, the world complicated relationships and people discovered the secrets of life on earth, conveying struggling important lessons mortals.

the conduct of the Royal Society of Mount Olympus in those days, it seems as fallible than today's jet set and the absence of TV, the stories of their lives and adventures, weaknesses and misdemeanors in ancient Greece apparently was the talk of the town

as an animated film first released in 1997, the ancient characters of Walt Disney's "Hercules" talking about a very modern language. – Charlton Heston ( narrator), Rip Torn (Zeus, chief of the gods), James Woods (Hades, lord of the underworld) and Danny DeVito (Phil the Satyr) was released including their voices in a fast-paced, wildly funny and very entertaining movie for kids and adults alike.

What is often overlooked, though, is that the story of Hercules is a brilliant parable of the human cycle of life on earth – to me that most of his films. It all starts with the party on Mount Olympus, where the gods reserved the right entrance is to celebrate the birth of Hercules, son of Zeus and Hera. The host welcomes a new guest:

"Hades, you finally made How are things in the underworld.?" "Well, they're just fine. You know, a little dark, a little gloomy. And, as always, hey, full of dead people. What are you going to do?"

The evil Hades plans to overthrow Zeus, as leader of the gods in what he sends helpers pain and panic after a "hostile takeover bid", however, and soon the party abduct Hercules down Earth, because the fate predict that it might thwart a coup 18 years later.

Although the pain and fear is still the most effective allies dark forces today, good help was hard to find, even in those days, and pain and panic did not quite manage to infuse a magic potion Hercules would make him forget his divine origin.

As a result, Hercules retains his superhuman strength of his spells on the ground – but that does not make him a very popular, like an impetuous teenager, she breaks everything it touches, and not allowed anywhere near the local pottery shop. & # 39;. Jerkules " his nickname back then, and I want to be normal like everyone else

just wants to fit in somehow, and he knows where he belongs, in which the scene of the archetypal hero's mission – this is very much highlighted his catchy song & # 39; to go the distance ":" I'll find my way, I can go the distance, I'll be there a few days, if you can be strong; I know that every mile is worth will be my go. "

So when you leave the home of the parents to find their place in the world, the first stop of the temple of Zeus, in a quiet place, though, to ask for guidance. There he learns that his father is a famous – and Zeus tells him that he had to prove himself a true hero on earth to restore its status as a god.

How to become a true hero?

learn the expert.

Zeus the advice and help of Pegasus the flying horse, Hercules looking Philictetus, the coach of the heroes. Phil disillusioned, because the former customers such as Perseus and Achilles did not go the full distance, but it takes Hercules, and shows him all the tricks of the hero-commerce. We all make mistakes and get hurt in the process a few times, of course – if you are taught that you have to learn and the lines between teacher and student gets blurry after a while.

Along the way, Hercules is to save Megara, the distressed, and they fall in love – does not know that he had sold his soul to Hades, however, and is committed to help him settle the cosmos to take over Mount Olympus. Despite efforts to Hercules out of the way before they spoil the prey, she will be a famous superstar "zero to hero" of the big city its own merchandised brand of consumer goods, the royalties that go with it, and the great life that everyone envies .

But to be rich and famous, powerful and efficient is not a true hero, Zeus tells him in another visit to the temple – before Hercules to join the gods he must have done something to make her discover herself something only found by looking inside. for the love of it –

Hades meanwhile angry and very disappointed with the lack of progress until you find a single weakness of Hercules. Hercules finally agrees to give up his massive strength to win a 24-hour liberty from the clutches of Hades – who immediately launch the attack on the World unleashing Titans.

But You, Pegasus and Hercules Phil did not give up shattered dreams and help him in his darkest hour. Along with the gods on Mount Olympus, Hades and defeat the Titans and liberate the planet earth from the underworld of tyranny and oppression – but not without casualties: You will die!

In a desperate attempt to change the course of events Hercules rushes to Hades and strikes a deal with him. & # 39; to bring Meg place "after His dive river of death, selflessly offered his life in exchange for his, but fate did not cut the thread that both of them appear alive – the underworld is not the power of God

he and the huge Hercules whisked off to Mount Olympus – now she can be reunited with his family back home a happy Zeus. explains: & # 39; a true hero is not measured the size of power – but the strong heart "

This is the moment, Hercules has always dreamed of, but realizes that life without love! even an immortal life would be empty – and decides to stay on the ground Meg and her friends finally know where I belong. "

I love it!

What if we all forget that we are powerful beyond measure and I have a connection with unlimited support of divine origin?

What if you knew that exactly where we belong, no matter where you are always, and what do we do?
