Critic Review - Reel Film Reviews

In the end, Mulan isn't bad - it's just mediocre, which is particularly disappointing given its Disney pedigree.

I almost agree with the critic, but I did in fact like Mulan. The final bits of the ending could have had some stronger points, but the story was creative.

This is a joke, right? Snow White paved the way for the animated film genre. Mulan was instantly forgotten.

That's the exact word I used when I saw it - mediocre. It really doesn't do anything Disney hasn't done before, and it follows a pretty clear formula. Socially awkward protagonist gets a chance to become something great and through a great deal of luck and a wacky but good teacher, succeeds. If you were thinking about Mulan through that last sentence, I was actually referring to the Sword in the Stone.

You might as well direct your fault-finding somewhere else because there are DOZENS of Disney movies that follow a clear formula. Disney aims their animated films at children and the formula is there for familiarity purposes.

There may be a formula, but each film brings SOMETHING new to the table. Except for this one. We've seen it all and there's nothing new to see here.
