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)

The story, animation, songs and comical side characters are all great, but the female main protagonist is one of the absolute best and most revolutionary role models ever put on film. Major kudos to Disney for this!

Mulan is too comedic and goofy at times and some characters are forgettable, but Mulan herself is such a strong female role model, the animation is quite good, the score is excellent, the message is strong and the action is solid. It features a good story, a great Chinese setting and feel to it and two fantastic songs in Reflection and I'll Make a Man Out of You.

A film that surprisingly takes many risks and manages to still be an awesome ride. While the characters are somewhat hit-and-miss, the focus does stay on the protagonist, who truly is the best character of this bunch. The story isn't anything special either, but the way it's presented through its setting makes it more enjoyable and surprisingly even more dramatic (its surprising darker intense moments really are appreciated). The animation is superb and the music is catchy as always. While not one of Disney's best, this is still a pretty darn good film.

Except for a few earnest funny moments generated by Eddie Murphy, Mulan is a totally formulaic crap with unidimensional characters and a rotten story. This predictable farce is only meant for kids and those with common sense should stay away.

A film from Disney's rough patch. The story is original and it is good to see an untraditional princess but the songs are lacklustre and easily forgettable and Eddie Murphy Mushu is dull!

I quite enjoyed this. It was quite original and while it stuck to the successful formula that has worked for Disney for years, it was different. It was set in China which I would have thought would be outside their comfort zone a bit.

Visually spectacular, Mulan is ground breaking in it's portrayal of women in animation, helped by a instant classic of a soundtrack, likable characters and important themes for families.

My favorite out of all the animated Disney Princess movies. More than Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, & Princess & the frog.

One of my favorite animated movies

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!

Mulan kicks butt with great performances, a good story, and interesting themes.

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.
