Disney got it right. This is a complex fairy tale that doesn't balk from obvious complications (how DO you hide in the middle of a mob of young males without stinking them out? Little item other 'heroine-disguise-as-hero' films have not thought of.) Complexity of decision-of-power (Mulan vs. Witch.) Enjoy!

I was so thrilled to see that Disney lost a bunch of $$$$ on this movie, therefore I urge Disney to make a sequel . . . . maybe a trilogy . . . Several trilogies!

For those who have followed epic chinese films of the last 20 years this movie is a huge disappointment. A Disney dumbed down version of a chinese classic story complete with voice overdubs of classic top Asian actors to please an American audience. Battles so poorly edited with zero blood to boot( if someone gets a spear in the gut they do bleed you know). Do yourself a favor and watch the original 2 part 5 hour chinese version of Red Cliff if you want to see how it's done right!.
There was one nice surprise. Jason Scott Lee was quite good in his role and that has been a long time coming.
For Donnie Yen fans this is one you wont put in his top 50 movies to see.
No wonder they didnt wait for a theatre release.

Great movie on its own, which was so unlucky to have the pandemic interrupt its opening. Spectacular production. Beautiful scenery. Some great martial arts - Didn't even recognize Jet Li. While it's hard not to compare it to the animated version, don't. This version is not a musical with the comic relief of Eddie Murphy's dragon or the lucky cricket. It is the same good story with some changes.

Save yourself the time and just re-watch the animated version. This is not good.

Loyal, brave and true, the signs of a valiant warrior! Are we meant to be warriors? You decide!

A very good re-telling of the animated Mulan story in live action form. A little 'kung-foo' slo-mo fighting and celestial mysticism movie. But good. I liked it. Not a musical.

This is not animated and the Ottawa library has the wrong image for this DVD (the cataloguing is always poorly done) The story is wonderfully done.

The premise, at the beginning of the film when Mulan is a very young girl:

There have been many tales of the great warrior, Mulan. But, ancestors, this one is mine. A young shoot, all green... unaware of the blade. If you had such a daughter... her chi, the boundless energy of life itself... speaking through her every motion... could you tell her that only a son could wield chi? That a daughter would risk shame, dishonor, exile? Ancestors, I could not.
