[5.75/10] Mulan (2020)

Mulan (2020)

Quick Review: Alternating colorful fantasy scenes with grimly grounded ones, "Mulan" is tonally uneven and lackluster, due to Caro's incoherent direction and unclear approach, but the film adds fresh elements to the fable, and offers vibrantly ravishing, if at times overly CGIed visuals, and flashy, yet never epic wuxia-inspired action, and though Yifei gives it her all in the lead, she's no Zhang Ziyi, and all the rest of the A-list Chinese cast, are either underused, or seem distant, besides Gong Li.

That's why I didn't fork out thirty bucks to Disney+.

Alex, definitely not worth it.
