Mulan Delights and Captivativates: Mulan Live-Action Movie Review
This, is the question I have gotten the most: is the new Mulan movie good? Honestly, there are so many layers that lead to a big yes to Mulan. To simply say, yes it is good, does Mulan a disservice. It is an Epic tale told in an equally magnificent way. Empowering, rich, beautiful. These are but few words that fall short to describe Mulan. Again, it has to be the best Live-Action remake ever. On to the Mulan Live-Action Movie Review
The Richness of Chinese Folklore
I just can’t tell you how happy I am to see Mulan again. The first time I saw it, I was elated. I was in a state of wow that still today is hard to put into words. That is, because to me the film has it all. Mulan brings to the forefront, the richness of the Chinese culture. Admittedly, I have lots to learn. But, if you have been around here before, you know that I am a strong proponent of peace. I suggest that peace can be achieved they understanding each others’ heritage, traditions, and customs. So, by being curious about others, we build understanding. In turn, this leads to tolerance and eventually into living together in harmony and respect. As you can imagine, Mulan speaks this language for me. But, it is a remarkable movie for so much more.
The Beauty of Mulan and Extraordinary Photography
There is no doubt. Disney’s Mulan is visually stunning. On its own, the photography beauty of the film is mesmerizing. The art of light that is used for every scene can tell the story and the emotions totally on its own. Add to that, compelling storytelling that is impeccable. Besides, this movie is full of heart. We see it in its development, the talent’s work, and even the reverence it conveys about honor, family, and doing things well. Just look at Donnie Yen’s sword display. Wow.
A Warrior and A Princess: Mulan is more than girl power
Don’t get me wrong. It is sensational to watch Yifei Liu dominate a spear, a sword, and even conquer a mountain. I was on the edge of my seat as I witnessed the action that emulated the animated version. Beyond that, Mulan is full of heart. Not only the movie itself shows it. But the character personifies it. She dignifies what it means to be a woman. Yes, women can fight and can mother. More importantly, we work hard for what we believe in and don’t give up easily when it comes to family.
Mulan is extraordinary. Definitely, it is magical. In the end, there is a lot to love about Disney’s Mulan Live-Action movie remake. The care and passion for the entire production deliver a remarkable piece of art. It is a joy to watch.
Oh and P.S.
While I get why Mushu is not as prevalent in the film, the Phoenix protects and guides. For all us Mushu fans, we have the animated version. So, we can always enjoy our special dragon. Want to make a bigger point about Mushu? Well then, watch Mulan with this delicious Dragon Fruit Mimosa in hand. Don’t worry, I have a Dragon Fruit Agua Fresca recipe for the kids and pregnant Mushu fans too.
Mulan Live-Action Movie Parental Guide
Mulan Live -Action is rated PG 13. If there are younger Mulan fans in your family, should they watch it? Here are some considerations to help make the decision:
Action – Violence
There is lots of amazing action. Be ready to enjoy martial arts as a preparation for war and in battle. Because of battle and more, you should expect violence. Furthermore, there is death, destruction, and “evil” forces at work. Knives, arrows, magic, swords all come into play.
Language and Gestures
I didn’t catch any to report. Regarding nudity and romance. Romance blossoms but there is nothing kids can’t watch. Mulan does take a bath in the lake that alludes to her being naked while talking to a man.
There are plenty of intense moments. Of course, the battles are. But, there are also moments that pull at your heartstrings. And, moments of plight (and Mulan’s internal fight). Little ones will be scared by the witch.
Length of the Movie
2 hours can be a bit long for the younger ones even if you pace the water and juice.
Can Kids Watch Mulan?
I believe the movie works well for kids 8 years old and over. Provided, they are not overly scared of dark forces and scary moments.
