      The plot is tough

      The plot is flawed and has no turbulence. Maybe foreigners think it's good because the Western production team adapted the Chinese story from a Western perspective. Maybe it conforms to the aesthetics of foreigners. After all, Westerners only like the China they want to see. As a Chinese, what I see in the movies is more nondescript, even incomprehensible and inexplicable. Liu Yifei has become Disney's first Asian princess, and it will not change the reputation that has been...

      If you give four or five stars, don't hurt people, right?

      Is it a deliberate attempt to cheat other people's movie tickets to get a high score for this lousy movie? ? ?

      I understand and give five points to a film like Fengshen Legend, because the rhythm is fast, the plot is advanced, the special effects are strange, and it satisfies cult lovers.

      What is Mulan? ?

      There is no plot, no scene, and no appearance. The heroine has nothing to watch in it. The beauty...

      Disney fairy tales where feminist narratives collapsed

      Thunder for everyone. I looked at the ratings yesterday, and thought that the ratings of domestic and foreign audiences were so low, somewhat because Liu Yifei was politically unflattering recently. After all, the live-action versions of the previous Disney animated films are still passable. After reading it, I found that this film is really at the level of a Disney Chanel TV movie. No wonder it went directly to the streaming media.

      In...

      'Mulan': Disney Triumph, Movie Crackdown

      5.0 points. The film itself can barely get a 5.5, but out of disgust with Disney's series of practices over the past decade, another 0.5 has to be dropped.

      I can understand and accept Disney's misinterpretation, misinterpretation, and pandering to Chinese culture in "Mulan". This is an inevitable choice for spreading globalization -- this incident in itself is not enough to become Disney's original sin. But I can't accept that this story is so retarded,...

      Mulan is a popcorn movie for women and children!

      I found an interesting phenomenon, complaining that the Mulan movie was bad, many of them were men who watched pirated copies online, but thought the theme of the movie was very meaningful, and many of the people who took their friends and children to the cinema to watch and were deeply touched were women.

      If you look at it from the perspective of whether the appraisal restores history, then at least 80% of the costume dramas in China are unqualified, one-word eyebrows? Modern...

    Casting process

    In order to find suitable candidates who can speak English and match the temperament of Mulan, Disney held a global audition and openly solicited leading actors. The film’s casting director team visited five continents and auditioned nearly a thousand actors in order to find suitable actors for the role. The requirements for this role include reliable martial arts skills, speaking English, and most importantly, being a star. Until...

    Role increase and decrease

    In the 1998 Disney cartoon of the same name, Li Xiang, the male protagonist, is Mulan’s superior, while the live-action version divides Li Xiang’s character image into two new characters: General Dong, played by Donnie Yen, and Mulan is like a master and a father; Chen Honghui, played by An Youxin, is a soldier at the same level as Mulan. It's because the film crew thinks that making Mulan fall in love with her superiors will make...

    Overseas evaluation

    "Mulan" is an epic story of a journey of growth, grand in scale, spectacular and exciting. This is a triumphant work, a full-female film, which proves that the boys' ideas are wrong. Hua Mulan can be loyal to her heart and bring back the glory and pride for her father. These sounds very simple, but director Nikki Caro produced a stunning sense of layering, no matter the color, outline or shadows, they all created a grand fairy tale...h

    Mainland evaluation

    The creation of "Mulan" weakened the parting process, but focused on "how Mulan awakens itself". Whether it is General Dong played by Donnie Yen, the witch played by Gong Li, and the emperor played by Jet Li, they are all people who help Mulan find herself in the film. There are also some viewers who feel very abrupt about the ending of Miko, but according to Disney's consistent tone of "strengthening the main line and weakening the...
