If it's going to give us these [remakes], Disney may as well start being bolder. Because as it stands, Mulan is a bland feminist fable that dispels some gender stereotypes but fails to do much more.

It is also too preoccupied with being politically correct, which, as far as preoccupations go, is noble, but also something that demands sincerity. There's very little of that here.

Still, Liu is engaging and sympathetic which helps us stick it through to the end, though who the intended audience for this film is remains a mystery.

This Mulan is a more straight-faced serious telling of the original Hua Mulan legend. It deals with the heart of a woman and how she struggles between her loyalties to family, country, and herself.

Mulan is a film that entertains, but does not completely satisfy.

Disney has turned a fun, family musical into a po-faced war movie with a rather suspect message.
October 23, 2020
Its cast, its attitude, its overall eagerness to please -- all benefits, one would think -- don't add up to a good movie. They add up to a blueprint of the movie this ought to be.

This remake tries to build its own legend. It's a different movie, a more mature one. But all the changes erase all charm to the character. [Full review in Spanish]

If you're a fan of the original 1998 animated film, you're going to love this live action adaptation!"

It may look like a film and quack like a film, but something's just not right with the new Mulan[.]

Mulan, as a character, is a wonderful role model for young girls and boys, too. She sticks to who she is and keeps her family values strong.

The 2020 Mulan adaptation suffers from the problem that also plagued 2019's Dumbo (based on the 1941 children's classic), an update that felt more like a mummification.

This Mulan is more straightforward than subtle. There are battles to be fought, an emperor to aid and a girl embracing her power. I wanted something more challenging, artful, disruptive.

Cold, shallow and lackluster despite breathtaking cinematography and costume design.
September 25, 2020
Liu pulls off all [her martial-arts] moves with vim and verve, and she conveys the essence of the story's defiantly disobedient rebel, too.

Mulan is the best live-action film to come from Disney in a very long time.
September 22, 2020
A live action mulan actually does lend itself to them doing some pretty great things but it's so similar to the animation with nothing that made the animation endearing [and] charming.
September 22, 2020
Disney got it right with Mulan...this version is respectful, borrowing from the Chinese auteurs...no silly songs or talking dragon...terrific...
September 22, 2020
Unlike some movies in the $100-million club, Mulan puts the money on the screen.
September 20, 2020
Although it's missing the charm and the magic of Disney's animated classic, its message of acceptance and empowerment is more vital than ever. [Full Review in Spanish]
