Mulan

Mulan (1998)I’ve seen “Mulan” back in last millenium when it was going through the movies. I liked it a lot and bought the DVD among the few things for Maxim’s near future. Watched it again today.

IMDB raintg: 7.2
My rating: 9.0 *********

This is one the best annimated stories released in the last few years. It is excellently drawn, interesting and exciting and suits nicely for both kids and adults. There is plenty of humor, as well as enough moral teachings. The perfect combination for this sort of flick.

The only thing that was slightly out of order was music. There was enough of music and songs, but all of them were somewhat sad and dramatic, slowing down the pace of the story and making it a bit boring to watch. Even Maxim was getting anxious to see the rest of the feature during the singing parts.

Other than that, this is one perfect cartoon to have in home collection.
