    This movie was better than I thought it was going to be. I came close to hating "Dumbo" from earlier this year, and I have yet to see "The Lion King". The trailers for this movie didn't convince me. Now, this wasn't as good as the original, it would be impossible to top the incredible film, and of course it starred Robin Williams, who was incredible. But this movie was worthy, and Will Smith did a good job as the Genie. He did a good job of following up such an iconic character played by such an iconic actor. But yeah, I would say he was very good. Naomi Scott really shines as Jasmine, I thought she did a pretty good job as well. Mena Massoud was fine as the title character, but he wasn't anything worth really talking about. My biggest complaint is Marwan Kenzari as Jafar. He gives a pretty lifeless performance as the ruthless villain, although it's not all on his part, as he's very poorly written. Also, the three animal characters (Abu, Iago, Raja) don't show any emotion like they did in the animated predecessor, due to the fact that they look photorealistic. Also, some of the singing in this movie sounded very auto tuned, you could definitely tell when the performers weren't actually singing. The cinematography in this movie I thought was pretty good, and I think Guy Ritchie did a good job directing. The choreography was done well too.

    Meh. Will Smith is fun to watch and makes a damn good genie, but Aladdin is just as monotonous and redundant as any other Disney live action "remake" as it is almost scene for scene the same as the original version. So yeah, just "Meh."

    Will Smith was such a bad choice as genie they should've chosen someone better. They should've used a coloured lady for jasmine like an Arabian for example. No Rajah, and what the hell happened to iyago. Poor quality acting apart Aladdin himself. Boring and couldn't even copy the original well at all. PS the yellow ranger who played jasmine looks like a tramp and I can't believe there was no iconic blue dress plus she can't sing. It feels it was rushed and it should be taken off all channels. How dare they ruin Aladdin. Garbage.

    I absolutely loved this movie. It both followed and didnt follow the story and original Disney movie. The songs where done amazingly and I couldn't help but sing along.

    I thought this was a live action movie from the classical Disney movie. I was wrong, they made cringe worthy changes. Extremely disappointed.

    I watched this on Blu Ray expecting the same level of trash that Lion King was in theaters, but Disney delivers on this film. Other than a random song about "voice", that doesn't advance the story at all, this movie is great from start to finish.
