Friday is family movie night and we decided to pay the Disney+ Premium to watch Mulan. We figured it would've cost us just as much to go see it in the theatre, so what the hell.
I think most everyone knows the premise and the story but I won't give any spoilers. I seem to recall when this first got casted that Disney was getting called out for white-washing? Regardless, the movie has a full Asian cast. What blew me away, in fact, it even offended me, was what seemed like a forced Chinese-American accent that most of the actors portrayed! It was horrible! I can't believe that the actors would do that. Quite shameful.
The production quality is quite good but I was not impressed. Poorly acted and mediocre SFX/CG. The dialogue and action were so Disneyfied. With all the battle scenes and death, not a single drop of blood was visible. I guess that makes war and killing okay in the Disney Kingdom.
Recommendation - Wait until December 4th when it can be watched for free on Disney+.
