I really liked this Disney flick that seemed to slip between the cracks

In the 1990s, I felt that Disney made quite a few undistinguished cartoons following Aladdin. Unlike most of the world, I wasn't all that enamored with THE LION KING and subsequent offerings such as the wretched HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME and POCAHONTAS were huge disappointments. Sure, POCAHONTAS is a lovely film to watch, but it's so wrong historically and it's so politically correct and hokey. And as for HUNCHBACK, the story was so dark and unappealing, I have no idea WHO the intended audience was. So it was in this context that I expected to hate or at least be underwhelmed by MULAN. Instead, it seemed fresh, well-made, humorous and fun--something distinctly missing from these other films. While the anachronistic aspect of having a lady warrior is problematic, for once Disney had another strong and likable female lead following Belle in BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. This was a definite home-run for Disney and well worth your time whether you are a child or an adult.

A Female Warrior Goes Her Way

Movie Review: "Mulan" (1998)

In the wake of a post "The Lion King" period at Disney Animation Studios beginning with "Pocahontas" (1995) and concluding with "Treasure Planet" (2002), while Pixar Animation Studios with director John Lasseter establishes digital animated features with the first ever widely distributed "Toy Story" (1995) engaging two times Academy-Award-Winning Tom Hanks to speak the leading character of Sheriff Woody, comes the hand-drawn animation highlight "Mulan" in the year 1998 directed by former character animators Tony Bancroft and Barry Cook, who present an extraordinary tale of a Chinese daughter of a weaken military man in the post Han Dynasty 450 AD China. The main character of "Mulan" decides to abandon female family-inflicted traditions, cutting off her lang raven-black hair with a long sword, before attending an ancient boot camp training period to confront a massive army leading character of Shan-Yu, vocally performed by almost unrecognizable-fierce actor Miguel Ferrer, whos character coming from the North of Mongolia, overtaking the Chinese Wall, pushing through snow-covered, avalanche-indulging mountains of North Eastern China, arguably taking detours though the region of Da Hinggan Ling to hit a central Chinese village palace scenario on his way to the Dynasty's Southern capital.

Show-Stealing all-too-funny character of dragon-pet character Mushu, given voice by spitfiring dialogue lines sharing actor Eddie Murphy, keeps the audience alive through a major martial-arts action-spectacle-miss-out in further emotionally uneventful sword duels and gun-powder inflaming rockets shooting through plain clearing mountain strings, at time loveless animated feature, especially in the daytime training scenes, when "Mulan" nevertheless had all the possibilities under a doubled production budget with consequent design efforts, apart from the storywise-superior to suspense-strangling "The Lion King", to become a Disney animated classic, which furthermore due to the lacking depth-of-character supporting cast, which entirely builds on deceased-ghostly-animated roundtable of imperial family members, when the missing thrilling touch becomes indifferent by the time of a showdown-forsaking confrontation between Warrior-becoming woman Mulan and Gorilla-beast-moving Shan-Yu in an even with 80 Minutes relatively short editorial by Michael Kelly, whos cut cannot deliver an ascending character arc of sophisticated Chinese Legend "Hua Mulan", spiritually as technically superior to the character of "Joan D'Arc" inhabited in western civilization, when at least rest-in-peace Jerry Goldsmith (1929-2004) infuses international audiences with charms of a an innovative classic-to-synthesized moving score to a over-all fair success of exceeding a worldwide box office revenue by 300 Million U.S. Dollars in concluding exhibitions of holiday season 1998/1999.

One of the best Disney movies I have ever seen

As someone who has watched many Disney films when was young, and re watched many of them with my young sister as an adult, I can say that this movie deserves to be considered one of Disney best films with other classics such as The Lion King, Aladdin. The story is well written and displayed, and the characters are very well introduced and you care about them and feel with them, The humor in the film is natural and not enforced and makes both kids and adults laugh, the animation is good (compared to pre-Pixar animation), and the songs are excellent and memorable. All in all, Mulan has all what is necessary to be enjoyable and memorable, and It is one of those films that you can watch again from time to time and enjoy it every time. If you want to sit with your kids and enjoy for an hour and half, I highly recommend Mulan for you!
