Mulan I & II 2-Movie Collection (Blu-ray Review)
8 April 2013
Conclusion: The first movie is an easy one to recommend as the animation looks fantastic, the voice acting is very good, and it has a fairly serious story that’s punctuated with some laughs, mostly from Eddie Murphy’s Mushu.
Summary: I find 'Mulan' to be one of the best second-tier animated Disney titles. It forgoes the standard prince saves princess routine and instead opts for a story where a female lead does most of the saving. It's a good contrast piece to the rest of Disney's collection of princess movies.
Conclusion: Though Disney's musical formula was not drawing and delighting crowds in the late '90s to the extent it had a few years earlier, it remained a reliable blueprint for praiseworthy entertainment.
Conclusion: Mulan is a flawed but noble Disney Renaissance warrior, with a compelling empowered princess, invigorating battles and a blast-from-the-past Disney beastie by the name of Mushu. Mulan II , though, is merely flawed.
