No dragon!!..oh there it is!By Charnel (2 reviews) from Chester , 25 Jun 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]If your expecting colourful characters and uplifting songs you've rented the wrong film...oh and the only dragon you'll see gets wrapped around our hero's head!!
Nice cinematography and staple martial arts character's (fat clumsey one, thin comedic one hard faced hero's) and epic battles. While enjoyable it'll leave hardcore viewers wanting more.

It's may not be the Disney version, it's better thoughBy a customer , 17 Dec 2013I'm glad I ignored the synopsis which is applicable to the Disney version. This is another of the really good chinese films. Yes the subtitles did detract a little but visually there is no fault, a really absorbing film.
Such a good movie!By sarahsmilesx (2 reviews) , 07 Dec 2013
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideI had only ever seen Disneys version of Mulan, so I had no idea what to expect from a more 'adult' version. I think I like this version more, but I wanted Mulan and Wentai to get together in the end! Other than that, amazing :)
Hua MulanBy 1956Firebird (6 reviews) , 22 Nov 2013The synopsis describes the Disney animation. This is not Disney. This is the true story of Hua Mulan who lived in China during the Northern Wei Dynasty, around 386534, long enough ago to have become a legend and folk tale. Her story inspired a ballad poem and a novel which have been used as the basis of both this Chinese film and the Disney animation.
The subtitles turned over a little too quickly for me, so I paused frequently, but this does not detract from the story, which is beautifully acted, filmed and produced.
My only criticism of this excellent film is that it doesn't show us any of the strategies that won her 10 years of military victories as a general. But then, the running time would be closer to 4 hours.

"Its ... Its Ok - its only two Arrows the Size of Javelins sticking in me ...By Zydor (268 reviews) from Headley Down , 01 Oct 2013... they are mere pin-pricks, you lot go drink some tea whilst I pop over and sort out that bunch of 200,000 bad guys on my own .... Toodles, see you soon ....' roflmao. Gotta love the Classic Chinese movies. This one has its share of Corny Lines and Cheerful Lunatics wishing to die for the Cause etc etc - but it is one of the better ones. As long as you can put up with the usual syrupy sweet Chinese hero worship, you'll like it, its a cut above most Chinese Movies. If you like you heroine's able to wade through forests of Arrows, Javelins and Swords flung ar her by Thousands of evil soldiers to reach her deadly enemy - you are going to love it :)
