AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: It could have told its classic story with greater depth, but the live-action Mulan is a visual marvel that serves as a stirring update to its animated predecessor.

I can only describe Mulan as a visually spectacular disappointment. Void of any emotional resonance, the film eschews coherent storytelling for what amounts to an Orientalist war epic masquerading as a feminist win for Asians everywhere.

Its cast, its attitude, its overall eagerness to please -- all benefits, one would think -- don't add up to a good movie. They add up to a blueprint of the movie this ought to be.

October 23, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

While glorious to look at, the movie still feels slightly hollow. All the right pieces are there, but an emotional connection to the characters is lacking.

September 10, 2020 | Rating: 6.8/10 | Full Review…

The combat set pieces are terrific, the scale of the storytelling is epic.

I'm as athletic as a bed sock but, for so many reasons, this movie made me want to do backflips.

September 5, 2020 | Rating: 4/5

That magic isn't present here, and the action scenes don't achieve lift-off.
