Mulan | 1998 | G | - 1.3.1

Disney's 36th full-length animated feature chronicles the adventures of Mulan, a strong-willed young Chinese woman who clashes with her traditional culture.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A woman bathes presumably naked (only her shoulders are seen) in a lake and several men join her. She later gets out of the water and wraps herself in a towel.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A battle scene with many flying arrows, lots of cannon fire and a huge army of men on horseback. A man is swept away by a rocket and crashes into a fireworks tower which explodes (presumably killing him). An avalanche covers an army of men in snow (presumably killing most of them). A post-battle scene shows many men dead on the ground amongst rubble and flames. A woman is injured and has a bloody wound on her stomach. A group of large men attack and kidnap the Emperor - there's some sword-fighting, punching and kicking. A fist-fight causes some bruises and property damage. The bad guys are huge and very menacing with yellow eyes. A woman's dress catches on fire and a bird's feathers are incinerated. Mulan is being bullied by her army mates. We see a ghost whose head has been cut off (he holds it in his hands).

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Cross-dressing, feudal societies, sexism and feminism, arranged marriages, tradition, honor, ghosts and spirits.

MESSAGE - Regarding women as inferior is not only wrong, it is stupid. Intelligence will triumph over brawn.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
