We were watching the movie Rocky in English the other day, and our assignment was to make a blog post that talks about the movie. I’m sitting there in class thinking, how am I supposed to relate Rocky to Disney? My friend and I were talking about it and he came up with the movie: Mulan.
So does everyone remember how Mulan was the worst of the warriors because she was a woman and untrained( no offense to anyone)? In the end, Mulan worked harder and stronger than ever before, which led to the showdown of her versus the chief of the Huns, Shan Yu.
The showdown between Mulan and Shan Yu reminded me of the fight between Rocky versus Apollo Creed. A nearly impossible fight, but in both movies the weaker opponent wins in a way. Mulan and Mushu manage to foil Shan Yu’s plan and end the movie with a happy note, and Rocky wins against Apollo because he didn’t want to win the fight, he just wanted to go 15 rounds with Apollo, which he ended up doing.
However, the fights only became fights because Rocky and Mulan both did it for love. Rocky decided to fight against Apollo out of his love for his girlfriend. Mulan left to train for the army because of her love for her father and knowing that he couldn’t survive another war.
