"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.

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.

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 …
