This movie is pretty good. Granted it was released right near the end of the Disney Renessance.
There are only a few things I don't like. The main villain(what was his name again) if your gonna do a villain you need to do it right pull a Frollo on us or something, heck he doesn't even get a song. Speaking of songs the songs are pretty forgettable, they're not bad songs just forgettable only 2 of the songs permeate through my mind.
And of course people will probably crucify me for this, I didn't like Eddie Murphy as Mushu. The way he jokes around worked in Shrek because that was the kind of movie it was, here it sticks out like a sore thumb.
Other than that Mulan is a very enjoyable flick, one of the best of the Disney Renessance, before the dark times.....

"Reflection" from Mulan is one of my favorite Disney songs. It gets me every time I hear it.
I was there when Disney premiered Mulan at the Hollywood Bowl. My dad works there so he was able to get me and my friend into the screening. One of the best Disney events I attended.
I think Eddie Murphy did a good job as Mushu. The joke writing was just better on Shrek and Dreamworks probably gave Murphy more artistic licence.
