Mulan (2020)

Disney did it again, a live action version of a previously released classic cartoon. This is going to be a blast. Comedy, action, Mushu and disguised girl honoring her family. Wait, no, sorry. There’s no comedy, no Mushu and no character development. The plot of the movie is the same. Mulan takes the place of her father to protect the Kingdom from the invading forces. I would say that 70% of the movie is the same. The major differences are that there is no character development and no comedy. In the animated version you cared more about her journey and the male counterparts fighting along side her but her you don’t because they only want you to focus on Mulan but not like you think. They almost want you to focus on just her abilities as a fighter/soldier and how her “Chi” (basically magic) will save the day. It doesn’t connect like the animated movie. There’s something missing where you don’t really get the connection from any character and Mulan herself is likable but since most know the outcome there isn’t a “there you go” moment. When she finally decides to reveal herself it isn’t that great. The action is good and very “Crouching Tigger, Hidden Mushu”. The effects are good and it’s vibrant but overall it’s a okay adaption. Lion King was just a copy, Jungle Book was great, Beauty and the Beast was faithful and Mulan was okay. I feel like I’m missing 1 or 2.My main issue with this movie was the fact that ITS CLEARLY A GIRL. There’s no way no one figured it out. Do all these fools work at the Daily Planet? I mean come on, seriously. That was my main gripe but other than that you’ll enjoy it enough once to never watch again.
