Not my usual fare but a likeable enough and entertaining animated romp that ticks all the appropriate boxes.

Disney Magic!

"The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all."

'Mulan' is set in medieval China. The Huns are invading, and by order of the Emperor one man from every household must serve in the army. In order to save her ailing father the trouble of fighting in another war, Mulan disguises herself as a boy and answers the call to arms to save her family's name. She is aided in her adventures by a comical dragon named Mushu, a lucky (or is it unlucky?) cricket, and three wise-cracking compatriots at arms.

I found it to be a beautiful movie that highlights a culture that has endured long because of its simplicity and deep values. The themes of honor and the search for one's destiny are very well explored through the adventures of the heroine Mulan. I loved the unforgett...

Mulan review

Tried viewing this since it was on cable. It's one of the popular films during its era so this critic checked it out. Animation was out dated and pace a bit sluggish for an animated film. Score was majestic as each scene is backed-up by the gorgeous soundtrack. Action sequences were suspenseful and creativity was present. Voice artists were convincing and had some cleverly written moments. Nothing new or groundbreaking for its genre, which is definitely understandable compared to today's technology in creating animated pictures. Intent was good despite some irritating quips from the background characters, namely Eddie Murphy who would be effective in Shrek though. Mulan is a nice animated feature enjoyed by kids, not entirely for adults.

Formulaic, But Immensely Entertaining

One could make a compelling argument that Mulan is basically no different than any other Disney princess film. And in a way, this is true. All the basic cliches are here: Outcast wanting to prove herself, supporting cast there for comic relief, and obviously the romantic element. To be honest, there's little about Mulan that hasn't already been covered by other Disney films. But here's the catch: The formula works. And that's why; despite it's lack of originality, Mulan not only succeeds, but flourishes.

Mulan, a young Chinese girl is determined to bring honor to her family, and prevent her father from going to war by going in his place, masquerading as a man. A tiny dragon named Mushu and a "lucky" cricket tag along to aid Mulan on her quest.

The romance element is (perhaps for t...
