I can see this movie is far more polarizing than I would have expected.

Personally, I was blown away by this movie and thought it was magnificent. The acting was wonderful, the message was powerful although it is possible some of the terminology is inaccurate and the cinematography and action choreography was brilliant!

I would rate this movie at least 4 out of 5 stars, without question.

Lifeless, culturally inaccurate (chi is not the Force), main star supports police brutality, was filmed near concentration camps. Seriously, Disney?

The weakest Disney 'toon to be given the live action treatment is, ironically, one of the best. Niki ("Whale Rider") Caro's $200-million mega-production features an all-star Asian cast that includes such stalwarts as Gong Li (who gives the film's best performance), Jet Li, Donnie Yen and Jason Scott Lee, and everyone is terrific. Of all the movies re-routed to streamers in the Covid era, this probably suffers the most from being viewed on a small screen. Caro has made a film so visually dazzling and with such an epic sweep/feel that only IMAX could have done it justice. But it's so entertaining and well-made that it deserves to be seen in any format.

A big budget film about the ancient (4th to 6th century AD) fictional folk heroine of Chinese history. Enjoyed the excellent set design, film locations and stylish martial arts. The addition of the controversial supernatural force of feminist Chi (Qi) and the timeless moral elements (Loyal, Brave, and True) are also good, though could use more panache and better special effects. Curious that the actors are all internationally well known ethnically Chinese stars (Jet Li is unrecognizable with all the makeup), all seem to speak English without discernible accent, while the director, producers and writers are all white people.

Note: Pay special attention to the beginning of the film about Chi that is pivotal to this version of Hau Mulan's legend.

its a great movie with a great story, dont let the american hate towards China make you think differently.The movie launched on cineplex and other platforms for $35.Its obviously wrong.Just like they try to make you think the Huawei phones are bad while thats actually the best piece of hardware in terms of phones out there.

Being that this is just a movie, leave the imagination to be entertained...I thought it was very good in that perspective.

An uninspiring movie that offers little beyond visual spectacle. It steals many scenes from the animated original while failing to make any of those carry the same weight and meaning. It is no longer Mulan's mind, wit, hard work, and discipline that elevate this common village girl to the inspiring hero we know and love, but rather a magical version of "chi." Mulan no longer finds unique and innovative solutions to problems she encounters, instead relying on her chi to do acrobatic flips and outperform all her fellow soldiers. The moral from the animated version: success comes from learning to work well with others, and through perseverence and dedication. The moral of the new version: success results from simply being unique and special. Mulan's sole flaw in this new movie is that she isn't using enough of her chi. There isn't even an explanation about why Mulan has so much chi. This remake is a shallow superhero film not worth showing to children.

The premise, at the beginning of the film when Mulan is a very young girl:

There have been many tales of the great warrior, Mulan. But, ancestors, this one is mine. A young shoot, all green... unaware of the blade. If you had such a daughter... her chi, the boundless energy of life itself... speaking through her every motion... could you tell her that only a son could wield chi? That a daughter would risk shame, dishonor, exile? Ancestors, I could not.

有很多關於偉大戰士木蘭的故事 但是 祖先們 這是我的故事 這就是她 一頭初生之犢 不畏虎 如果你有這樣的女兒 她的氣 無限量的生命能量 通過她每一個動作表達出來 你能告訴她說 只有兒子可以運用氣嗎? 說女兒可能會遭受羞辱、 蒙羞 或流放的風險嗎? 祖先們 我說不出口
