Just a classic film well worth watching

It was fun, Will Smith was as enjoyable in his part as expected, and the whole movie was a real romp.

It was wonderfully filmed with stunning cinematography and really engaging characters.

In conclusion, Aladdin (2019) is a enjoyable fun exhilarating magic carpet ride that is full of catchy songs, humorous and likable characters and great designs for pretty much everything!

I enjoyed it, and as my wife said, only Disney could give a carpet the character that makes you engage with it.

Will Smith had perfect comic timing and had a charm in his performance whereas Naomi was stunning and had a great screen presence.

Me, my daughter and husband all fell asleep.

Kids' movie with many unnecessary and boring songs .

No message and no quality.

Aladdin was bland, Jafar was Ja-far from being a good villian, and Jasmine was just nothing.

The upbeat fun songs from the original have been dulled down to a boring drawl.

But if you're very familiar with the original, this isn't going to introduce anything new, and frankly the cartoon was able to be way more entertaining in many respects.

This, to me, is what sets the live action movie apart from the cartoon - flat animation to absolutely STUNNING depth and scenery.

It was actually funny and entertaining.

However, this movie won me over in the end and it was beautifully made and entertaining at all times.

This movie is worth watching.

The movie is good but you feel evrything is predictable specifcly when aladin choose his 3rd wishes ...

Mind blowing .

Boring, lazy, and filled with blandness, this movie is so bad, I cannot describe.

An enjoyable Disney classic.

Absolutely unwatchable

exuberant, alive, and completely entertaining .

He's boring and...

The cinematography alone is worth the watch.

Marwan Kenzari's Jafar looked like he was bored out of his mind and wanted to go home, and lacked the energy and emotion of the original Jafar.

Probably this is the worst movie I've ever seen.

like during the scene when Aladdin dance with jasmin at the banquet at the jasmin kingdom (Agrabah), the movement of Alladin dance are very fascinating.

Boring tripe.

It's colorful, entertaining, and absolutely beautiful.

Colorful and entertaining .

Boring and childish storyline!

For me this is one of the most enjoyable movie in the last few years.

Aladdin was an thrilling movie which was such an amazing incarnation of the animated version.

I'm literally writing this review as I'm watching Aladdin because I'm so bored I'd rather do this.

But it's too boring when they start annoying with those songs 🙄🙄

While at some points and especially at the end things get dragged out too long, by the time they do this as a viewer you don't really feel anything for the characters and just want things to hurry up already and end.

A love interest for the genie was completely unnecessary and kinda confusing.

Most of the songs from the original is back and especially the ones Will Smith sings are really worth watching.

A dazzling, fun and entertaining adaptation .

A beautiful movie, entertaining and to dissect it into this, that and overlook the fun of it...

I did somewhat enjoy watching this film whether that was because i loved the original and wanted to love this one who knows but i do know i wouldnt watch it a second time i left the theater feeling underwhelmed and dissapointed thinking why didnt i really like this movie much.

But Will Smith who has a great sense of humor and great chemistry with even the dullest character made this film a very good experience.

On the other hand,it's a little boring because it's not the same as aladdin animation.

So I guess great for insomnia.

It's pointless!

The problem is being derivative and pointless.

I saw this movie for the first time today and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

There were majorly important parts that seemed to be brushed over for the sake of adding new pointless plot points.

The actress sings it with passion, but the song "Speechless" ends up feeling a bit pointless and out of place.

Don't waste your time,

All in all a good entertaining family movie among the other good entertaining family movie reboots.

Very paradoxical: the story feels rushed while being utterly boring.

mildly entertaining.

Hollow and Uninteresting .

Only good thing was will smith, besides that, waste of money and time.

This film stayed, mostly true, to the 1992 original, and was filled with colors, sounds and laughs worthy of a entertaining trip to the theatre.

I found it enjoyable enough.

Keep showing audience unnecessary and boring dancing scene!

Enjoyable .

Naomi Scott her singing was so beauty,but this story a little boring.

Great movie, I enjoyed it and so did my son.

This was painful to sit through - boring, lacklustre and with little in the way of Disney magic.

In summary, I was majorly disappointed by this movie, and all of Disney's usual talent has wasted away and become lazy, and once again they've just made another monetary, boring copycat.

The acting for the most part is bland.

Despite all the bad reviews I think this adaptation is funny, exciting and magical just like the original.

Definitely not as revamped as the Dumbo remake, but still very entertaining.

some better than others, but enjoyable to each of their own degree.

The ending felt a little bit forced but in general as a family and kids film the movie is really enjoyable

Fun and enjoyable .

Also The camera and movement are really slow at the beginning...

Not even twenty minutes into the movie, and they're shoving feminist propaganda down our throats.

Enjoyable .

It's a Disney movie yet the acting was so monotone and melancholy.

Don't waste your time n money plzzzzzz..and story related to movie name is totally different

Waste of time as most of whatever comes from Hollywood nowadays.

Another multimillion-budgeted uninspiring revamp is not.

Watch in HD and you'll see how enjoyable this experience was.

This movie is more bland than room temperature coffee.

Visually amazing, but slightly empty .

"Aladdin" is a very funny and highly entertaining version of the Arabian Nights´ tale by Guy Ritchie.

Finally, a live action adaptation from Disney that is worth the watch!

The costumes are details , realistic and fascinating.

So boring and lifeless.

A movie worth watching .

Naomi Scott and Mena Massoud did do a good enough job but their performance obviously feels a bit dull in comparison to Will Smith because he is a real scene stealer.

Overall, it's a decent, if overlong, watch that can actually be fairly enjoyable.

Very good and enjoyable .

Boring .

Where the remake succeeded: +Will Smith was probably the most fun and enjoyable part of the whole movie.

Boring and long winded.

Even the orchestra or instruments behind them feel empty, actually sounding smaller, and more amateur, nowhere near on the level of the original versions.

Boring.

The movie was enjoyable.

But, if you give it a chance as its own movie while looking for a little nostalgia to go with it, it's very enjoyable.

Review: Will Smith definitely saved this movie, because I was falling asleep after the first half an hour, and the singing was getting on my nerves.

ENJOYABLE .

It made me relive my childhood for a brief moment and there were a lot of breathtaking scenes.

I can easily say that its the be movie in 2019, I loved every thing about the movie and I enjoyed it and I can watch it a million times.

The last twenty minutes will make up for a little slow beginning of the film (of course I understand, a bit of time is definitely needed for introducing the characters of the famous "Arabian Nights" - I totally get it......

A pointless recreation of the cartoon version with the addition of Benny Hill sequences.

Where the remake succeeded: +Will Smith was probably the most fun and enjoyable part of the whole movie.

Funny and exciting .

to my surprise I really enjoyed it, it wasn't to musically for me (which when Disney added annoying song extra backstory to B&TB I found it rather draggie as the whole concept didn't fit for me along with starring Emma Watson as Belle nah) Will Smith did an exceptional job!

The biggest example of this is when they jump across the rooftops to avoid the guards, in the cartoon she grabs the pole & jumps across all on her own to the surprise of Aladdin, but in the live action she has to be coached & assured by Aladdin she can actually make the jump & will be ok - why this pointless change.

Music was beautiful much like the original and it took some slight creative liberties in an enjoyable remake.

Entertaining.

Jasmine's dad was disappointingly boring (prefer the bubbly albeit blur cartoony-version).

Disappointing, pointless and sloppy.

Good entertaining fun.

The Genie is just as boring & uninspired as everything else in this movie.

A messy and underwhelming live-action adaptation, with uninspiring results .

Apart from the story-telling, I loved the costumes and sets, the music, the humour, and found all the added elements, like Jasmine's maid friend etc, very entertaining.

But still an entertaining movie.

This movie is very enjoyable.

I even thought Jasmine's character arc was more compelling and enjoyable.

I really enjoyed it and my kids liked it very much.

They portray Aladdin as a dull, dim-witted, clumsy character.

Dead eyed, wooden, monotone'd debacle .

This film is very enjoyable and funny and it certainly doesnt deserve the critics it has get

It's pointless, yes, but it's here and I have to admit it's a fairly entertaining time.

Nothing that is new in the movie has any values, Jasmine got a lot of backstory and too much screen time that goes no where and totally pointless and boring, Especially when the movie called "Aladdin" and not "Jasmine" I can write on and on about every single antagonizing thing in the film, But I better just finish withDisney doesn't care, and doesn't try,Everyone seemed to be annoyed with Will Smith playing the ginnie, I though he was actually the only enjoyable character and actor there Expect his singing partsI would recommend you watching the original movie instead

The two leads were boring.

Quite an unexpected remake lined with nostalgic sounds and characters.

Overall, the movie is different from the cartoon in some aspects but they were pleasant necessary changes that make the movie enjoyable with its own charms.

Possibly one of the worst movies in history of cinema.

The acting and singing were even more bland.

Worst movie I've ever seen .

You are setting yourself up for disappointment and empty pockets with their 30$ popcorn combos for 2.

Overall, despite some iffy CGI and editing, it makes for entertaining viewing.

I just enjoy watching this movie.. its very entertaining.. great casting and acting.

Jasmine got a more compelling story arc, which might have been due to her influence.

save your money for Lion King.

Will Smith had a different but entertaining version of Genie.

In true Disney fashion, the sets are spectacular, and the animals, which include a tiger, a monkey and a parrot, are terrific but the two main characters, Aladdin (Mena Massoud), and Jasmine (Naomi Scott) became a bit dull after a while.

Will Smith is entertaining, the vocals are on point and the colours are spectacular!

Really Entertaining.

Takes the Disney version and adds an adult layer to the story making it enjoyable for everyone

But it's controlled so he is entertaining and witty without being intrusive.

But i enjoyed it...

As far as performance is concerned only Will Smith and Naomi Scott could give justice to their characters, rest all were average and dull.

A very entertaining movie .

I haven't thought this will be that good because the some of the bad reviews and now i'am asking why they are here already why some people say mistakes are never exist, if you are here so you already into this kind of movies and if you are not so why you watch something you don't like already to say later it is bad, maybe the remakes are not always good yeah but actually this one is pretty good, exciting story, the acting the places the dancing the music, you would like to watch every thing without missing a moment

Unexpected Amusement .

🙂)THE MUSIC, old and new, was moving and so engaging.

There is nothing really different except for obviously the ending as I mentioned, so this movie may feel dull to some people.

It makes me feel better about that waste of time and my now partially ruined cinematographic childhood (yes im referring to you too Lion King).

Stunning Modern Twist to a Disney Classic .

Fantastically entertaining .

Bland...

Will smith is only reason this movie is worth watching

enjoyable .

He was one of the reasons why this movie, Aladdin, was enjoyable along with the people that played Aladdin and Jasmine.

My whole family and my three kids enjoyed it so much,we watched it over and over again..thanks guy!

Too cliche?

What a terrible waste of everyone's time and money - on both sides of the screen.

Pleasant enough, entertaining presentation of the Aladdin story.

Lost a bit of magic but i still enjoyable.

The villain is the most boring one dimensional half made villain since Justice Leagues Steppenwolf.

A very very very extremely entertaining movie .

It was enjoyable - Aladdin.

Empty, hollow, plastic.

Don't waste your time.

Very well made and so good, funny and enjoyable.

First off, the new song numbers are bland.

The cast for Aladdin and Jasmine also worked well, again I was sceptical with the animated version that I grew up with and watched with my own child at the back of my mind, but I was again soon dragged back into this version and of course no-one can bring animated to live action fully without the over use of CGI and then the masses would complain still.

IF you can get passed all of those initial biases, or whatever yours might be, I think you'll find that this is an enjoyable movie.

Very entertaining .

What a waste of time.

Kids' movie with many unnecessary and boring songs, nothing new in "Aladdin", it's same as others Disney live-action movies.

Waste of time don't bother.

Don't waste your time !

It is quite stunning though and I enjoyed every minute of it!

Its worth watching even if you have watched the original.

The lively and exciting characters I grew up with have been replaced by bland and uninteresting characters from the Sultan to Jaffa.

The only thing is.. I did get bored sometimes, because some moments the singing did take too long to pause the story.

This is an awesome movie with a soft and simple story packed with mind blowing graphics, effects and music.

I fell asleep the wrong way watching this.

Even our grandchildren were bored .

In the sign of the times, fewer good screenplays result in bland remakes of classic motion picture gems.

The movie is very entertaining for all the family.

This movie is boring.

Funny and Entertaining Version by Guy Ritchie .

It's enjoyable, stick wit it.

Among the cast that stood out as the best, was Will Smith in his interpretation of the Genie of which he easily serves as the most entertaining aspect of the entire movie and nearly stealing the whole show.

Instead of seeing the cunning and intelligent Royal Vizier, we get a very bland and boring little helper.

And I enjoyed it SO MUCH.

They switched up the soundtrack a little and made it more modern, which typically I would hate but I actually enjoyed it here.

With all the special effects I found the images of the movie utterly dull and lacking any fantasy.

The Climax is suspenseful and very different from the Original.

One of the Worst movie of 2019 .

Don't listen to the anti-Disney brigade, this is diverting, amusing and an enjoyable family film (side note - my son is 18 and he has now seen it twice).

Finally, it made from a classic normal story that all of us know it to an enjoyable and loveable film .

Don't get me wrong, Will Smith was pretty much the only enjoyable thing about this movie.

That shows how much I enjoyed it.

For example, the whole part of Aladdin in the cave, taking the lamp and escaping afterward felt rushed and boring.

We reached a point where we had to just walk out of the theater.

This movie is waste of time period.

The leads felt like stage actors and so was the set design and it was way too long for no reason.

To summarize the negatives this movie suffers from being a beat to beat remake and being extremely predictable and to some very dull.

It was super cringe-worthy and unwatchable.

All in all, it was a fun, enjoyable movie.

Very enjoyable.

Meanwhile the musical numbers are boring and the CGI is uneven.

Really enjoyed it !!.

I took my daughter to see this and we both enjoyed it, she especially loves the movie.

But dont waste your time here.

Not only does this film carry over subplots from the first film, but it also invents completely new and pointless ones to go along with them.

This version has zero draw as a villain, he blends in with the background actors & is very bland.

The stunning visuals of Agrabah and the fun, upbeat music present in the original provided the soundtrack to my childhood.

"Speechless" is beautifully sung by Naomi Scott but the scene is very out of place and pointless which is unfortunate because the song is great.

It's funny, exciting, comical with great special effects.

After that "One Jump" happens and the song is good but the sequence is kind of a mess with a mix of slow motion shots and fast speed shots and normal shots it's a little weird but enjoyable.

Boring, no charm whatsoever, careless .

In terms of direction, Guy Ritchie is proven to be ill-suited to direct a musical like Aladdin, given the fact of how he handled the direction of the musical sequences turns completely bland, and the results of its action sequences were choppily-cut and sloppy, which results on his direction as extremely rote and soulless.

It's coloful, exciting, funny and full of amazing music, basically a perfect family film.

Movie was thoroughly enjoyable!

Very entertaining!!!

I was all prepared to be bored by an egoistic attempt to rehash the introductory scenes of the original that we have all watched 100s of time.

The movie was entertaining.

This was ho hum right from the auto tune in the first song.

He is not a dashing rouge, a daring street rat, he is just bland and has zero chemistry with the girl playing Jasmine.

Let me start by saying, I am average and I found the movie to be enjoyable.

Both very enjoyable and entertaining.

Don't waste your money.

The most pointless waste of time in 2019.

It started to engage us and be exciting!

Luckily, the cast and story surrounding them are so likeable that I was able to forgive a few slow scenes, for the most part.

The production design is superb and the musical segments are stunning!

I found this movie to be entertaining than the animated one with the music being far better as well.

Weak acting resulting in boring movie; CGI for even common animals .

Entire film full of boring and overuse singing scene!

From the start it was weak, weak corny acting and despite the colours it still came off as kind of bland.

In the end it was an enjoyable night filled with memories, Will Smith, music, jaafir and stranger.

All in all, it was a movie with visuals, choreo, and music as its strengths and the impossibility to translate entertaining cartoonish personas (which people loved about the original) into live-action as its weakness.

Entertaining for a one-time viewing unlike the 1992 Aladdin which is a masterpiece and a movie that can be watched again and again to live out the childhood nostalgia - also it's much funnier!

Definitely worth the watch!

I enjoyed it.

We enjoyed it so much we went again the following week.

The songs are so, so, sooo boring, omg.

He also infused his hip-hop background into the musical portions; this makes his singing more enjoyable.

Fun, thrilling, romantic, colorful, It has it all.

The voices are quite bland.

not so, I thought it was a watchable enjoyable film.

And his performance as the Genie came off as a pretentious attempt to be comedic that just fell flat in every conceivable way for me.

In all honestly, this was one of the worst examples I've seen of this cliché.

More enjoyable than i would have thought.

Enjoyable performance and a great - great - great Will Smith.

I enjoyed it as a movie....

This is boring, tired, unfunny and frustrating.

Another problem that this remake truly suffers, is with the cheap-looking quality of the costumes and sets, along with the inconsistent CGI (particularly the CGI quality of Will Smith's Genie, which almost looks unwatchable), making the remake completely dull and garish.

Though no one can ever come close to the Robin Williams version of the Genie, Will Smith does an entertaining job enough to be the only reason I am giving this movie an 8 star rating as it really is 7 stars if we are honestly speaking here.

This live action remake was boring and lasted longer than it needed to be with unnecessary side plots and not so great CGI the only thing that keeps the film at somewhat alive is the music and will Smith's acting

Please watch this movie with an open mind and I promise you will find it enjoyable and a good homage to your childhood

Thumbs down boring.

This movie was engaging and the new spins that were written were a phenomenal reimagination of the Aladdin story line.

Boring and lifeless.

I actually enjoyed it more than Beauty and the Beast.

Surprisingly enjoyable .

Within the first 5 minutes I knew I was going to be disappointed, it's slow, lacks any energy & somehow is dull.

On the whole a really enjoyable film.

Hes pretty enjoyable to watch in this movie except for the few cringe worthy deeply exaggerated "nervous talk" dialogues between him and Jasmine at first & second sight as Prince Ali, i didn't find those parts funny at all, they were just uncomfortable to watch and even though i cant speak for the opposite sex, i don't really think women would find those scenes funny or interesting at all, it was so exaggerated that in my opinion didn't work out one bit.

quite enjoyable .

He was quite dull and boring, definately a miscast.

After watching the incredibly dull remake of "The Lion King" (which I saw before this), I was worried.

For me, this movie with its poppy but forgettable songs and pretty but bland actors had more in common with High School Movie and other teen Disney movie musicals than it had with Eastern folklore.

Totally Enjoyable .

Good entertaining movie .

It was fun and entertaining.

I enjoyed watching this movie, for the most part, it was funny, exciting and it looks beautiful.

The finale is stunning.

It's a big waste of time and money and it's a movie that i'll never going to revisit ever again.

So, when I saw that the live action was coming out, I was kind of exciting to see it.

Enjoyable .

But after watching this one is actually entertaining and actors' performance really not bad!

My biggest issue with this movie, aside from the whole "it's pointless to make a shot for shot remake of an existing classic" thing that bothers so many, myself included.

Thoroughly enjoyed it not sure what movie everyone else was watching!

Disneyland's real dream factory, the long lens started into the fairy tale kingdom in an instant, the princess of Jasmine is too beautiful, the acting is also very good, riding a magic carpet to visit the world is very stunning, of course reaction

7/10 - weird camera angles and some iffy storytelling can be forgiven in this entertaining Disney remake in which Will Smith proves to be a worthy successor to the great Robin Williams

The movie was very entertaining and Will Smith does and excellent job of doing the genie role justice.

It's a complete and utter waste of time.

He just has a basic boring "Polly wants a cracker!

Just boring.

If you're looking for a family friendly, wholesome, entertaining movie look no further.

It is funny and exciting.

Massoud and Scott are fine if unremarkable, whilst Kenzari as Jafar is just deadly dull and is not the pantomime menace he is supposed to be.

If you LOVED the animated movie and you want the live-action to follow the same script - then save your money.

All in all, this new Aladdin movie was really good and was worth the watch.

Since I am quite a fan of the animated version of Aladdin released in 1992, I absolutely looked forward to this live-action adaptation and it didn't let me down: the clothes are gorgeous, the plot and lines are entertaining, songs are still lovely and the actors also did a great job indeed.

Lots of fun, engaging characters and a touch of Bollywood.

The biggest waste of time of 2019.

Enjoyable , entertaining , and definitely an improvement over the original .

Enjoyable Family film .

But it was fine, fun and engaging to watch, nothing too obnoxious, nothing too political.

My favorite part of the movie is when the genie sings "A friend like me", it was super entertaining.

worst movie ever .

Simply magnificent movie, breathtaking special effects, musical was very good, chose the actors very well!

Somewhat entertaining Disney film.

The only thing worth watching is the broadway musical

All of the songs that we grew to love in the original, became tedious after a while, and the additional songs didn't really work.

Boring .

Very joyful, full of colors and entertaining, with just a pinch of new story ideas, that add to the movie's freshness.

The songs seemed slower and not as exciting as they should be in my opinion.

Confusing.

It didn't grasp your attention at all, and everything was lackluster and boring.

BORING!

This movie was just boring.

which is why i enjoyed it for the most part.

Some lines and moments are indeed extremely enjoyable, while most others seem too forced.

They made it interesting and exciting.

Marwan Kenzari as Jafar is an absolute bore, and the remaining cast eventually fizzle out.

Tedious to stick with it the whole way through.

The third strong point is the actors : Mena Massoud was OK, but I particularly love Naomi Scott who was stunning and truly revealed by this role.

There are also several new songs in that first half hour; they are all drab and mildly irritating.

All in all, it was an enjoyable film with beautiful effects and enough new material to keep me interested.

Like I said, if you haven't seen the original and are being introduced to Aladdin for the first time, this movie is fine and enjoyable.

Disney co. Production gift us one of the best movies ever, Mena Massoud was amazing, acted very well and Will Smith was stunning too.

If I'm honest i miss the humor, but it's worth watching once.

Yes, it was pointless and the decision to make it was a bit tasteless.

It is mind blowing 💜💜💜💜 .

Unwatchable .

It's not quite good because of its opening, which is confusing and rushed, and the fact that it embraces complexity where it's not necessary (there's a lot of talk about invading a neighboring country that is oddly extraneous).

Entertaining.

Waste of time .

Brilliant, thrilling, funny great for all the family .

It's missing all of the magic and wit of the original in the same terrible street set over and over again and dull harsh sunlight; remember the beautiful wistful moonlight scene over Agrabah in Disney's Aladdin where Aladdin and Jasmine see the same landmark in two different ways?

The story was bland.

I wish it were entertaining beating waiting to go from one scene to the next to see what they butchered.

Agrabah is truly stunning, and you get some amazing shots.

The visuals were stunning and beautiful.

Beautiful and entertaining .

It was an enjoyable movie.

I like the animal version tatally that is my favorite so i like this story the live movie has lots of advantages it is really enjoyable

Predictable yet enjoyable.

The movie was great and I very enjoyed it, As an Arab I noticed a lot of things that made my experience in this movie so good and made me feel that the movie is really talk about "Arabic" story.

Surprisingly enjoyable .

The visuals were stunning it was a real treat to watch.

So, while the story is familiar to most of us it is still a nicely entertaining 2 hours.

Its actually very dull and the singing segments seems fake and out of no where .. although the one thing that raised the film for me was will smith he took the role very well and gave a good flavor with his comedian scene

but the super slow and steady shots were probably only so they could animate the monkey in...

It truly takes skill to turn the most colorful, over the top & magical Disney movie into a dull shell of a story.

Thought it gonna be boring just like some other Disney movies.

Forced explanations of the mundane abound & whether they contradict what you'd assumed or compliment, they feel superfluous regardless.

I understand many like the new musical numbers but to me they were just # Times Up propaganda music.

Not all that great, Will Smith is one of the best parts of the movie though, Jafar made it nearly unwatchable for me

Instead we get a pointless, protracted chase scene where Jasmine actually loses the lamp a couple of times, finally losing it to Iago.

But fortunately to me Will Smith saved this movie from being a dull remake to a enjoyable experience.

It seems very Bollywood style which just doesn't suit the Aladdin as we know it from the animation and the extra songs didn't seem to fit with the original songsHonestly, will smith as the genie was the only thing enjoyable in this movie.

songs, dressing and direction was absolutely stunning!

I was really skeptical because all of the articles i saw beforehand , but in the end I really enjoyed it .

Perfectly entertaining remake .

Mena Massoud as Aladdin is terrible, Naomi Scott as Jasmin is at best passable, and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar pale and boring!

Especially the sad, hallow version of Jafar, but the title character himself is truly flat and bland.

A big empty void wrapped in autotuned CGI meh.

Great and unexpected solo from Scott where she injected some real much needed emotion.

Also, while it is entertaining to an extent, there have been far more enjoyable family films this year that are a lot more original than this.

The story was too quick in parts when there needs to be more information, and too slow in the filler parts.

While the visuals are often copied straight from the original film, the actual music is enjoyable.

Boring & uninspiring.

Exuberant, alive, and completely entertaining, the adventure-fantasy combines a raucous sense of humor, iconic performances, and classical songs into a joyful blast of cinematic color.

Enjoyable Movie .

What a waste of time .

The plot stayed the course of the original but it was extremely entertaining I found myself forgetting what was going to happen lol.

Enjoyable entertaining movie.

And the whole added character arc with Jasmine was so forced and predictable.

Bored to super freaking death!

Worth watching, I laughed a lot and e feels a very much like the Broadway musical sometimes

Overall very enjoyable movie

The ending also very predictable!

One of the worst movies.

I'm not sure why I've been seeing low ratings, but I enjoyed it, like I was smiling through most of it.

Overall a very good performance, movie and very enjoyable.

Entertaining?

Iago is one of the reasons why Aladdin is enjoyable.

Many scenes were taken out, and too many pointless scenes were added.

Great words I can gather in this film .. Interesting and fun and very entertaining.

That's why my wife and I actually wanted to avoid these Disney remakes from now on and not leave any money at the box office, but due to a Disney presentation at their university (on the topic of Jafar), she was almost forced to do it and I didn't want to leave her alone ...

Will Smith played stunning role as a cool, emotional and friendly genie.

Entertaining?

I was skeptic about this film but after watching it I can honestly say that I enjoyed it more than I expected.

Found this movie so boring....

Great directing,great casts,very enjoyable watching Will smith as the Genie.

He just sounds monotone and bored.

Finally, i got that the creators of the movie wanted to create a new legacy for Disney, which was interested and enjoyable fro some points.

A slow start that needs a little trim but the movie does get very engaging when Will's Genie is released from the lamp.

As someone who finds the idea of Disney 'live-action' remakes (read cash-grabs) loathsome, and as someone bored to death by their previous Cinderella and B & B live-action remakes, I was very pleasantly swept off my feet by just how much I ended up loving this movie!

It actually put a smile to my face and I really enjoyed it!

To be truthful one of the worst movies ever.

They are surprisingly sung terribly, especially by Will Smith, but songs like Prince Ali have the most boring choreography put on film.

The film is bright and colorful and in general has a very happy, entertaining feel to it.

3.0 - Headache-inducing movies I regretted sitting throughHonestly I generally do not have prejudice against live action remakes - sure, most of them are heartless cash-grabs devoid of any creativity, but many could be entertaining and frankly, nostalgia sells.

Didn't really add anything new to the original, but I still enjoyed it.

For example, the whole part of Aladdin in the cave, taking the lamp and escaping afterward felt rushed and boring.

He is just boring honestly.

I would have expected it to be more flashy and more intense...

Boring when not cringy .

The story is fairly engaging, and they have the advantage of acclaimed material to work with, and when you follow that as closely as they did here, it's hard not to have a good story.

But it's very enjoyable, and does a great job establishing merit for these remakes.

It's fun , entertaining and love to watch it again

Will Smith was just as engaging as was Robin Williams.

I really enjoyed it.

Rajah to was bland (the tiger).

Heartless, badly acted, stilted, colourful, yet somehow dull.

But there must be a confusion between Arabs and Indians according to the looks of the characters

He's an entertaining character and Smith really brings him to life in a satisfying way.

I found this movie very enjoyable.

Bored to freaking death.

A ghastly blend of weak direction, poor writing, unfunny wit, substandard production values, muddled editing, laughable characterisation & dull performances that never for once realises that the real strength of the 1992 animated musical fantasy lied in its simplicity.

10 stars, so enjoyable, successful remake .

Regarding the movie itself, it started off extremely poorly and I can understand the other reviews of people that decided to leave after 30 minutes, because I almost did the same.

I enjoyed it all the way through and I loved the chemistry of the characters.

I adored the beauty of the city, the dancing, the colors, costumes, everything was so stunning.

The cinematography and visual effects in this movie was delightful and stunning.

If you decide to watch it save your money and time its not worth a trip to the movies I recommend waiting until it's released on a streaming service or DVD.

I liked the very early part of the movie but starting near the middle of it till the end I felt really bored 😴The usual music theme of the Arab countries is utilized with no creativity.

I watched this movie in Hotstar Premium and quite enjoyed it as well.. It was basically a Fun ride and small childs also gonna enjoy it for sure!
