This is a fantastic, over-looked gem from Disney animation. The adaptation of the Hugo book is surprisingly honest and accurate for a Disney film and the songs are some of the most emotional I've heard in an animation film, touching on some dark subject matter. The visuals of a pre-Revolution France are also awe-inspiring and impressive.

The adult themes carried over from the source material have to coincide with some of Disney's lesser simplicities. This is not a smooth combination. The comedy is weak, as well. The music is grand, but unmemorable. A few darker moments ring true to the original message of the story. This is a big mixed bag.

"The Hunchback of Notre Dame" is wildly and hands-down one of the best Disney classics of all time! Yes, the story is much darker, as are the songs and themes, but it is definitely one of the most incredible ones. I truly loved the animation as well as one of the most insidious Disney villains: Judge Claude Frollo. Not as good as the book, but still a masterpiece!

This is the last traditionally-animated Disney film that I really liked. It's dark - almost too dark for Disney, but it worked out great for me. The songs are hit and miss, but overall, the animation and story keep you entertained.

Disney forgot their audience with this one. This film had inappropriately mature themes for young kids.

I watched this movie because I was part of a stage adaptation of it. So, I know it inside out, all its strengths and its flaws. Despite being on the darker side by Disney standards, the movie Disney-fies, Hollywoodizes and oversimplifies a much darker tale of Hugo's. It takes a tragedy and gives it a kiddy ending. Frollo and Pheobus' characters are also oversimplified. But despite these flaws, it's a good movie to watch as long as you don't expect it to conform to the original novel. The gargoyles, especially, are hugely entertaining and Quasimodo is so charming and loveable.
