Mulan II

Mulan II (2004)I was surprised to learn that “Mulan II” exists. As successful as the original animation was, I thought it would be followed by a sequel, but everything was pretty quiet. It turns out that sequel came out six years later.

And as many other sequels it sucked. The animation was as good as the original, but the story was very boring. There weren’t any major fights. There was too much music. Again. And there were some serious story holes and discontinuations. Like with all those kid training in the beginning that was never used. Or the disappeared helmet of the general – a parallel that was never followed. These are just those that come to mind.

Olga, Maxim, and I all watched it through, but we were talking and doing other things too – which is a sure sign of a bad movie.
