anarresti's rating of the film Mulan

What a disappointment. All these years, I thought of Mulan as a break in the narrow representation of Disney female characters. Just watched it. It does use a classical theme. The girl that disguises as a boy to escape the confines of society and her expected role. But the characters have irritating American mannerisms, they speak as 20th century teens. The plot is dull. If this is a big step for Disney that's scary.
