YesAsia Editorial Description

Directed by Jingle Ma (Butterfly Lovers), the historical action epic Mulan earned its place in the 2009 year-end lineup of Chinese blockbusters with its adrenaline-pumping war scenes and strong star power. After her turn as a willful warrior princess in Red Cliff, Vicki Zhao gender bends again as eponymous folk heroine Hua Mulan, the filial daughter who famously adopted male guise to take her elderly father's place in the battlefield. Defying her father's wishes, Mulan risks death to answer the conscription call in his stead. Faced with the dangers and heartaches of war, Mulan grows into a great warrior and general while working hard to keep her true identity a secret. The legend of Mulan has been adapted into numerous small and big screen productions including a Disney movie.

Aloys Chen, with whom Zhao paired in Painted Skin, plays the general who develops a strong camaraderie and ambiguous romance with Mulan. Hu Jun is charismatically over the top as the ruthless leader of the enemy army, and Jaycee Chan plays a free-spirited soldier. The unique supporting cast also includes Yu Rong Guang (Iron Monkey), CJ7 child actress Xu Jiao, Korean-American Mando-pop singer Nicky Lee, and Russian singer Vitas. Stephen Tung Wai provides the action direction for the film's impressive battle and combat scenes.

Professional Review of "Mulan (2009) (Blu-ray) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)"

March 9, 2010

This professional review refers to Mulan (2009) (DVD) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)
Given the continuing popularity of the Chinese costume epic, it's pretty much inevitable that all manner of legends and enduring tales will be dusted off and brought to the screen as blockbusters. And so up steps director Jingle Ma, known for commercial hits such as the recent Butterfly Lovers and Playboy Cops with a new, big budget, all star version of the legend of Mulan. The story has certain proved a favourite through the years, having been adapted many times in the past, even enjoying the dubious distinction of having been made into a cartoon over in Hollywood by Disney. Here, Ma offers up a somewhat more grounded take, bringing in top actress and recent Red Cliff heroine Vicki Zhao as the fabled girl in general's clothing.

Taking on the role of the titular Hua Mulan, she plays a young girl who disguises herself as a man to go to war in place of her ailing father, to defend the Wei people against the barbarian hordes of the Rouran. As she finds success on the battlefield, she also develops an unsurprisingly strained romance with a fellow general (played by Aloys Chen, with whom Zhao starred in Painted Skin, who comes to realise that in order for her to fulfil her potential, her heart will have to be hardened to the horrors of war. As the new ruthless leader of the Rouran (Hu Jin, recently in Bodyguards and Assassins) plans an invasion, the nation's need grows ever more desperate, and she does indeed find herself faced with increasingly hard decisions and personal sacrifices.

Obviously, the Mulan story is likely to be very familiar to most, though it has a classical rather than hackneyed air, with Ma covering the passing of time quite well and giving the proceedings a suitably epic feel. The plot unsurprisingly revolves almost entirely around Hua Mulan and her development, and so Ma is fortunate to have a genuine star in Vicki Zhao, who effectively carries the film on her more than capable shoulders, turning in a performance that strikes just the right balance between tough and vulnerable. Although the premise of her being mistaken for a man isn't particularly convincing, especially since she never makes much effort to hide her obvious femininity, she does manage to make her character convincing, not playing her as a straight warrior. This turns out to be both the film't greatest strength and its one real weakness, as whilst it delivers a Mulan who is believable and whose relationships with the rest of the cast give her a certain amount of emotional grounding, on the downside, she does spend a fair amount of the running time moping around or crying - not exactly what some viewers expecting to see an all-action female warrior might have hoped for.

Certainly, the film does get pretty sappy in places, and as a result the pace is a bit variable, though it is at least never dull and there isn't too much in the way of needless comic relief, Jaycee Chan's bumbling soldier friend aside. As with Butterfly Lovers Ma seems to be trying to tick too many boxes at once, without ever showing too much skill at melodrama. The film is still engaging enough, though it's hard not to feel that he might have been better off either focusing more on historical detail, or on fleshing out the central romance between Zhao and Chen to make it more believable. This having been said, the film is never offensive, and benefits from being quite harsh and downbeat in places, with most of the supporting cast being dispatched and with poor Mulan going through some pretty tough times - though Ma certainly milks every one of these moments for all they are worth.

His direction is somewhat more focused than in previous outings, and the film is generally well handled, in a fairly standard, Chinese epic type fashion. Although it leans towards the gritty style of The Warlords, it retains a slightly glossier feel, with the obviously high budget having been put to good use, in particular with regards to the impressive looking costumes and armour. Wisely, Ma throws in a good amount of action, with plenty of mass battle scenes, and some nice sweeping camera shots, all of which helps to inject a little excitement, thankfully without too much use of unconvincing CGI. Stephen Tung's choreography is solid, and though the film is never quite brutal enough to hammer home some of its bleaker moments, it still has enough punch to keep battle fans happy.

As a result of this, and more importantly Zhao's star turn, Mulan is better than expected, and is a perfectly creditable genre entry. Whilst not substantial enough to be the definitive version of the famous story, it does see Ma improving somewhat as a director, and it's hard to really fault the film as commercial blockbuster fare.

Disappointing Customer Review Rated Bad 4 - 4 out of 10
Maybe something was lost in translation but I just didn't like this movie. I didn't connect with the characters, I wasn't overly fond of the plot and the ending was just downright annoying (although I'm glad too because I didn't like that particular pairing as a romantic couple ANYWAY).

I just think they could have done better. They didn't have to do what Disney did... but they could have made it more interesting and more exciting, by far.

The real Mulan Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Zhao Wei portrayed an honest, good-natured Mulan and the heart of the story was captured and quite moving. You know that overwhelming emotion felt during the scene in Disney's version of Mulan? The scene when she is sitting in the rain storm and decidedly gets up as she rides out to war in her father's place; well, you get the same feeling watching Jingle Ma's Mulan as she repeatedly conquers battle after battle and also when she is on steps of the palace. It's a good story, a good story about the strength of a woman.

superb Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
compared to shows like Red Cliff, Mulan is probably less captivating. however, these 2 films arent comparable as they are of different genres. Red Cliff focuses more on war tactics while Mulan focuses more on the emotions and this makes Mulan a very deep, insightful show.

one is easily captivated by Vicki's impeccable acting as she re-enacts the character very well. she brings out the character's sentiments tastefully and is able to make one feel for her. Vicki's emotional disposition enables her to bring out the overwhelming emotions of Mulan in a spectacular way (the scene that touches my heart was the scene where she had nightmares and wakes up crying and screaming. the muted scream, to me, is very powerful). kudos to her for her spectacular portrayal of Mulan!

Chen Kun is another awesome actor. he has the charm and poise that makes him an ideal and convincing general, Wen Tai. Wen Tai serves an important role in the show as he is the one who inspired Mulan to make a difference. Mulan eventually stands up strong, proves herself capable to lead the troop.

you will be disappointed if you are expecting this show to be like Red Cliff. however, if you are into shows that deals with the emotional struggles of a prominent female protagonist who overcame herself to achieve what she truly wants, this is the perfect show for you.

Familiar territory. Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Another epic period piece from hong kong that actually entertains. mulan is a an excellent character concept that is been returned to countless times over the years on t.v. and the likes here is her major film adaption. Jingle ma created an commercially successful piece he checks all the boxes that a period piece like this needs in order for it to capture the audience.

vicky zhao puts on a really good performance she carries the film and you can sympatheis with her this is due to her likable character who is humanised through good character development. Aloy chen and jaycee chan also brings aboard good performance. jaycee chan's character could have been more refined as in more screen time but that is only a minor gripe.

there are some nice moments of choreography with in the film but these are more down and dirty realistic fighting on the battlefield so those expecting fancy moves will be disappointed.

a fault with the film though is how things happen at a really fast pace - right from the beginning mulan is recruited, next she is to be executed, next her identity is known, next she is promoted and so on and all this happens during the first half of the film. it would have been nice if these moments were expanded on. nearer the ended things do slow down to a decent pace but as it does, it is time for the end of the film.

along with red cliff, warlords, battle of wits and the likes it is a worthy addition to hong kong war epics.

Epic with a heart Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This is another movie worth watching. Vicky Zhao is really pretty even she was dressed up as a General of the Army. She portrayed a role of a man to take his father's place in the battle due to his sickness.

This is where she met Alloys who also portrays a General and he knew of her true identity. A twist in the end... something that surprise me. Sad ending for me but the story of royalties always ends that way.

I am you will like it.
