    It's not a whole new world. But I appreciate that they fleshed out the characters more.

    Not great acting, while watching the movie, I kept thinking that something was missing. The movie feels bland. I personally prefers the anime.

    The best thing about this movie was Will Smith's performance, and that was pretty lame. Somehow they managed to take a vibrant story and made it look like flat, caffeine free, diet soda.

    No, this live-action adaptation of the classic animated picture will not reach the heights of its predecessor's timeless glory, but Aladdin 2019 provides its audience, young and old, with a dazzling, colorful, comedic, and delightful new take on the tale with pleasing modern adjustments. With a diverse and capable cast, show-stopping musical sequences, and a generally solid plot, Aladdin serves as a lovely and moving revitalized take on a classic adventure.

    Despite some minor errors in the casting, Aladdin still manages to live up to the original source material, making it my most favorite live-action Disney film adaptation.

    I think Aladdin was a pretty great movie. The movie is comical and exciting. The actors are good together and the CGI is amazing. The music is the eye catcher. But, like some of Disney's movies, Aladdin lacks originality. It feels like a complete replica of the original animated version. Still, this does not make the movie boring, so it's not much of a problem if you ask me.

    Nasin Pedrad is the saving grace of this film that made me not give it a half star

    I went into this movie thinking I would hate it, because I absolutely love the original, grew up on it, had it memorized line-by-line as a 9-year old. Surprisingly, I did not hate it. I actually liked it. It was a fun, light-hearted adventure story / romance / musical that was well-paced and had some gorgeous visuals and great performances. The humor was actually pretty funny and I found myself laughing out loud during a scene featuring an excruciatingly awkward meeting and an over-mentioning of jams. Will Smith actually does make the genie character his own by playing him in a more haughty-fashion-designer-meets-Hitch kind of way, rather than try to emulate Robin William's brilliantly frenetic man-of-a-thousand-voices persona. Aladdin and Jasmine are likable and have decent chemistry, and Jasmine in particular kind of steals the show with her more passionately politically-ambitious take on the character, combined with some powerful new musical numbers. My wife and I in particular enjoyed "Speechless." There are also some very visually creative sequences, such as a singing chase through the streets that keeps switching film speeds while maintaining mouth sync to create a fun and artfully cartoonish sequence. I felt like the humor generally felt pretty organic and not forced or awkwardly shoe-horned in, unlike some other live-action Disney films of late I could mention. It also doesn't have fake-woke messaging awkwardly inserted in embarrassing ways. It has good positive progressive messages for both boys and girls without being preachy or virtue-signaling, and I appreciate that. No, this film is not a visually stunning work of artistic perfection like the original cell-animated version, but it's a genuinely fun watch. I was happily surprised and delighted. I recommend this movie for kids, families, or couples who just want to chill and watch something to cheer themselves up after a long day.

    The story line was NOT the same. If you are a fan of Aladdin the original do not watch this. So awful.

    Not a bad live-action movie. As a movie for the whole family, it's fun to watch. It is no 1917-type movie or a film that can win an oscar for best picture, but just a good movie.
