Hunchback of Notre Dame is probably one of the best book adaptions I've seen in my life. While it is still is strange that Disney would do a story this dark and translate it into a semi kid film, it surprisingly worked extremely well. The animation is just massive in this film, t...

One of Disney's darkest movies. Some of its themes are rather uneasy topics; prejudice, lust and ideas of genocide. However, this doesn't stop 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame' from being enjoyable. This features plenty of emotion and humour. For me, the film has Disney's ultimate vi...

This film is better than children's movies of today, but its flaws keep it from being the classic it could have been. The film features the most stunning and most brilliant animated sequence ever--Frollo's iconic "Hellfire"--but then features a weak script and three extremely unn...

Disney's most adult venture yet but falls short with an unsatisfying end that leaves plotholes and the dark themes it explores answered with hollow echoes.
It's all really disappointing, 3/4 through the movie I was convinced this was the studios best work yet. It's almost as if ...

In terms of being a musical, The Hunchback of Notre Dame is one of Disney's finest movies. The music completely enhances the emotional draw of the characters and story; while also making for some extremely good sequences. The voice talents are (as usual with Disney) perfect. Whil...

A work of genius, this film plays every correct note.

Others can still stick to the old Disney films or the more childish ones, but this is the true masterpiece of the bunch. Not only does it have the strongest beginning of all Disneys but also one of the best soundtracks. There are wonderful characters, the story is very fast paced...
