Mulan is one of the greatest animated films ever made. The plot from start to finish is not only interesting for both adults and kids, but it also has a great message to it. The songs are catchy, fun, and help the flow of the film. I think the most interesting thing about this film is how dark some parts of the story are. While you can expect no real major violence or gore in these films there are several instance of what war is like. To use such a heavy subject in a kids film is not exactly what you expect, however this is counter balanced by Eddie Murphy’s hilarity and Mulan’s companions throughout the film. If you are looking for a great family film look no further this is a must own and must see film.
Bottom Line (Warning Contains Spoilers)
Mulan is original and great with a strong female lead who saves a nation from invaders. The reason I like this movie is how dark the plot is interesting for a Disney film. The songs in the film are great and the idea that cross dressing army soldiers save the emperor is absolute hilariously great.
