Although this isn't one I've only seen recently, I thought it was interesting to bring up. An article on tumblr popped up talking about one of the latter scenes in Mulan, and how looking back on it now had some interesting outlook on the characters.
What they found thought provoking, was how thoughout the movie, Mulan, as a woman in china, lived with the constant reminder that she's a woman, she's weaker then all male counterparts, she wasn't allowed to join the army in her aging fathers place, so posed as a boy in order to get accepted into the army. When she was found out she was a girl, her own soldier friends abandoned her, and it took some heroism at the end to shift peoples minds about how a woman can be a strong as a man.
But in the scene above, when mulan faced against the main antagonist, Shan Yu, when he realized who she was, it just didn't seem to matter to him that she was a woman, she simply was the soldier who caused the death of hundreds of his soldiers, and he just didn't seem to care one way or the other of her gender.
The huns apparently faught alongside women in the wilds of the homeland to survive, and even Genghis Khan appointed his own daughters to generals in his army, the women of mongolia were in a much more powerful status (while not perfect, the past never has been), then the women of china were.
So in a strange way, the way Shan Yu regarded Mulan as just another soldier regardless of her gender makes him more of an interesting character then first thought, and I kind of wished the movie delved more into this, the contrasts between the huns and china in how it treated its own.
