Blah

This movie pretty much ruined everything I like about Mulan. Mulan showed a strong female role who DOESN'T end up with a man at the end. I love it. And then I watched Mulan II. In Mulan, she literally saved China and is given tons of respect at the end. In II, she literally is just this girl who teaches younger girls how to fight, not as a job but just because they beg her to. The whole plot is to get girls to marry princes, and the "happy ending" is Mulan marries Shang. Like, hurrah! another one... MULAN IS AMAZING AND TOTALLY INSPIRING AND ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOVIES I LOOOOOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mulan II, as I have stated, is a bucket of scrambled eggs. (I hate scrambled eggs). The only reason I gave it two stars is because it has a couple of really good songs. I wouldn't recommend watching it, but there are some good parts. The middle of the movie is just a lot of arguments with Shang and Mulan, and the princesses flirting with Yao, Chien Po, and Ling. It doesn't leave you happy and inspired and proud to be a strong woman. It leaves you being like, is there a Mulan III?
