Movie Review: Mulan

Mulan is a 1998 film from Walt Disney Pictures. This is a story of Hua Mulan based on Chinese legend. Fa Mulan is the only daughter of Fa Zhou. She impersonates a man and takes her father's place in the army where Fa Zhou or all the males in the family to fight against the Hun invasion led by Shan Yu. She has many company in her journey along with her is her guardian dragon Mushu, her lucky cricket named Cri-kee, her captain Li Shang and her friends of Yao, Ling and Chien-Po. They all have to battle the invading Hun army for China. Fa Mulan also has to prove herself that even if she is a female joining the army as a man, she has to give her father's and family's honor as well as her country, China.

This film has the flavor of musical songs like Reflections where Lea Salonga is the singing voice of Mulan and that which became a popular song of Christina Aguilera in the same title. Here you will like the songs particularly Reflections.

Somehow, in Mulan, it is a modern women power because Mulan is not the girl next door type but an empowerment to her gender especially in ancient times of China. China back then and until at present is still follows traditional rules of their customs and traditions.

As a female, I like the film Mulan because it makes me proud to be a woman with substance. Women can do everything especially when there is a need. In history particularly in the Philippines, women in the highest position in the land like being a President of the Republic of the Philippines is the transitional stage of the political stability of the land. For examples are the late President Corazon Aquino and former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

In society, all men says that women can't live them or can't leave without them. Cheers to Mulan!!! Cheers to all Women.
