Even though Mulan isn't the best hand drawing ever of a Chinese woman, and that's rather racially unfitting since Chinese women are super attractive, this movie is pure pleasant eye candy what with depicting a Chinese girl, a funny dragon and a cute bug all teamed up with the funny, clumsy Three Stooges all against the Huns, the ISIS of Ancient China. This is one of the best hand-drawn animated films ever made.

A Disney animated classic!

This was good, but only slightly better than the disaster which was Hercules.

A great way of telling a old Chinese folktale into a animation style!

A film that, even with the nostalgia goggles off, still holds up very well today. As always, Disney never fails to produce spectacular animation. The fluid motions of the characters and the sharp, crisp colors of the backgrounds alone make it worth a watch. The performances, which Disney has admittedly been hit and miss with in other features, also work very well. Ming-Na Wen should especially be commended for her voice work, capturing all the right emotions of the titular hero. Some detractors may take issue with Eddie Murphy's presence in the film. Now while it's true that he is sorely out of place here, the filmmakers were clearly trying to repeat the magic that Robin Williams gave them in Aladdin, his dragon sidekick is still inherently likable and funny. All of the characters here, main and supporting, have a chance to shine. Well, all except for the villain Shan Yu (voiced by Miguel Ferrer). This character may go down in the Disney Renaissance as the least interesting. Aside from a unique look and appropriately creepy voice, there's not a whole lot for him to do, which is unfortunate considering the high caliber of villains in the Disney cannon. Are there other complaints to be made? Sure. Some of the jokes fall flat in and those familiar with Disney will likely pick up on the clichéd story beats, but that typically comes with the territory. That's not so much meant to be an excuse as it is just a warning to those expecting something radically different. But in the end, Mulan succeeds for its animation, performances, and heart.

Classic vintage disney, with some of the best action to ever be in an animated film.

I'm not a big fan of Disney movies, but this one really stands out in every aspect and - isn't that absolutely amazing - George TAKEI, Pat MORITA and Eddy MURPHY (amongst others) lend their voices to the characters.

Mulan is just great. Everything about this movie is awesome. It is fun, griddy, heartfell, thrilling, and it tell an amazing story.

Fun and beautifully animated Disney classic.

Family duty in wartime China when honor is the pillar of each household. The spirit world is summoned for protection, and a charming dragon and cricket accompany Mulan to war. Clearly Disney. 7.9/10 (rewatch)

Amazing movie it's really hard to see a bad movie from Disney if it's not a sequel or live action movie of an old one

½ May 24, 2016
Definitely one of the best Disney films ever made.

It has the animation we expect from Disney, but Mulan's characters are forgettable and its plot uninteresting, just enough to make it worth watching once.
½ May 1, 2016
Another masterpiece from the Disney Renaissance era. Mulan is an emotional tale of honor set in China. It is well-rounded with a meaningful story, memorable songs and great animation. It has become a classic! (First viewing - Summer 1998 in theaters)

Impressive on a technical level, but the story feels hampered by the presence of Disney hallmarks like musical numbers and comedy sidekicks, which weigh down the film and hinder it from being truly great.
