This film was ok. The use of English was a mistake in my opinion as the actors did not seem comfortable using it. It would have been better if they had spoken in Chinese with English subtitles.

I haven't liked Disney's recent remakes so didn't have high hopes for Mulan, but it ended up being the best by far. I loved how the plot doesn't revolve around a love interest and she learns not to hold back her talents. The special effects are phenomenal. Another commenter remarked on how the movie felt similar to a superhero movie, and I agree. Mulan would win in a match up against Iron Man. She doesn't need a fancy suit to perform aerial acrobatics.

I have never seen the cartoon version. This was a great find it shows the power and strength of women. Overall a good movie.

This is a very good movie. The mistake people made was comparing this version with the cartoon or the original version.

If this movie was called something else, it would have been better. The main actress is very good but the way they changed the story pales in comparison to the original IMO.

this version of mulan exceeded my expectations. beautiful costuming and scenery. enjoyed seeing jet li, gong li, and donnie yen. nice wire work and a scaffolding fight scene. the animated version is more kid friendly, but this was more appealing to my adult self.

Nice woman empowerment period piece in ancient China. Liked the movie but Mulan became less woman and more superhero as things moved along. Mulan had good "chi" which meant she had highly improved energy and health. In the movie I guess "chi" also meant she has gained some superpower like Supergirl as Mulan climbed, fought, and ran
far above the physical abilities of mortal men.

I wish they had made the movie closer to the cartoon. It needed Mushu and some laughs. Not worth it. Watch the original Mulan cartoon movie.

Colorful and full of action, the snippets of music from the original film made me nostalgic for the 1998 film. The beginning and ending (seeing Mulan with her family) were my favorite parts of the film and while there is great promise in telling Mulan's story of being true to herself and finding her 'chi' the movie doesn't deliver, spending too much time on action scenes.

A very good film The cast was excellent. The story is timeless. Bloody war scenes, lots of violence. Still, good!

The premise, at the beginning of the film when Mulan is a very young girl:

There have been many tales of the great warrior, Mulan. But, ancestors, this one is mine. A young shoot, all green... unaware of the blade. If you had such a daughter... her chi, the boundless energy of life itself... speaking through her every motion... could you tell her that only a son could wield chi? That a daughter would risk shame, dishonor, exile? Ancestors, I could not.

有很多關於偉大戰士木蘭的故事 但是 祖先們 這是我的故事 這就是她 一頭初生之犢 不畏虎 如果你有這樣的女兒 她的氣 無限量的生命能量 通過她每一個動作表達出來 你能告訴她說 只有兒子可以運用氣嗎? 說女兒可能會遭受羞辱、 蒙羞 或流放的風險嗎? 祖先們 我說不出口
