Disney's live action remake of their 1992 classic was fun and entertaining.

It's a pointless and unoriginal bore of a film that I will not be seeing again.

Beautiful and entertaining .

Kinda good kinda boring .

Sparkling and absorbing.

It is stunning.

I went with my wife and enjoyed it!

Literally the worst movie in my life,jasmean was the only good thing in this horrible movie.

Only flying carpet comes for you to ride enjoyable moments.

Absolutely Breathtaking and WORTH Watching .


Will Smith really made the movie enjoyable for me.


Boring, no charm whatsoever, careless .

This movie seemed to me well made but so empty.

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.

Will Smith had a different but entertaining version of Genie.

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

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

Is a very entertaining movie.

Entertaining & fun.

But as with many films of this type today, the editing and camera work is frenzied and often too fast-moving, and at times, the film becomes extremely blurry.

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

As mentioned, the movie does slow down a bit and the characters arcs are well established.

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

The movie is very entertaining.

The costumes were stunning and I liked the new elements they added to the songs.

It was a food movie i really enjoyed it

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

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

The movie moves very fast in key points of the movie then slows down and drags out pointless moments.

I went into this one expecting the worst but was relatively surprised at how enjoyable it was.

In my opinion, Will and the fascinating scores are the shining stars in this live action remake.

But we can rest easy know that the kids of our next generation is still absorbing these wondrous stories, just through different mediums.

I have only ever walked out of one movie before.

Don't waste your money.

Will Smith does his best without aping on the late Williams, but even as entertaining as he is it's the rest of the cast that brings him down.

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

Just a classic film well worth watching

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

Fun, Beautiful, Enjoyable Family Movie .

It's definitely an enjoyable movie though, worth a ticket.

Very entertaining movie for the whole family , classic songs , colorful dances , and very good performances

Our group of 8 spanning 40 years thoroughly enjoyed it!

It's a fairly entertaining almost 2 hours.

Live action Disney remakes are fascinating markers to compare the 90s to today.

The rest of the new additions to the film work pretty well, with some extra scenes between Aladdin and Jasmine which helps to give them a more natural on screen chemistry and they give Naomi Scotts Jasmine a far more engaging personality, actually showing her going out of her way to do right for her kingdom and playing a much more active role in the story.

The numbers such as "One Jump Ahead", "Friend Like Me", "Prince Ali", and "A Whole New World" were supposed to have a sense of energy and excitement, but I was bored throughout them all.

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

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

save your money for Lion King.

Effects are stunning and the music is the best thing of ALL MOVIE.

Really enjoyed it .

Musical perfection and very enjoyable .

Very fun and enjoyable .

Very entertaining .

For my final wish, I wish to set you free from seeing Aladdin, which is so close to the animated classic, it's pointless .

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

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.

I fell asleep the wrong way watching this.

exuberant, alive, and completely entertaining .

I watched it in IMAX and it is absolutely stunning.

Talk about a horrible miscasting - Jafar is supposed to be a snappy, devious, crafty villain...

I guess that occurs because the animated Jaffar is such a cliche figure with his voice, face, and all his tone while the live action version has no soul.

Pointless and lost.

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

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

Do yourself a favor, catch the broadway one (you can see it on YouTube) for a proper adaptation that knows what it is and is far more enjoyable than this mess, or just stick with 1994 animated masterpiece.

slow down at the Aladdin-falling-into-the-water-scene).

It's a musical - that won't surprise many as it's a reinterpretation of the 1992 animated version in live action , brilliantly cast - Will Smith and Naomi Scott steal the showIt's a family feel good movie well worth the watch .

Dead eyed, wooden, monotone'd debacle .

The movie felt so nostalgic and exciting!

I enjoyed it very much and I'm already looking forward to Lion King.

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

There's Genie's B-Love-Story that ultimately is pretty boring and contrived, seems to be placed there just to pad the run-time.

And finally, stop it with the feminista agenda, the ending does a great job of promoting that women can be great sultans, and that in itself would have made an amazing ending, but that scene in which she randomly bursts into song with everyone else disappearing, only to confront the guards (by the way completely overturning the rules of the magic wishes, in which if jafar wished to be sultan, the Princess speech should not be able to modify that), and ultimately being an empty gesture as it does nothing to the plot.

It's undeniable that without it, the rather simplistic story would've dragged.

My kids enjoyed it.

Her awkwardness when interacting makes the character extremely likeable and enjoyable to watch.

The film was really enjoyable, Will Smith, without a doubt it was the best of the whole movie.

It's funny, colourful and entertaining.

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

Believe me, watch the cartoon again, it's much much better than this bore fest.

Also I very much prefered the bollywood influence just like WIll Smith (which IMO much more entertaining than anything put out by the egyptian or arab film industry).

This live action version of Disney's Aladdin was enjoyable enough on its own if one hasn't previously seen the studio's animated version .

Anyway, still worth the watch, and, again, good overall.

Jasmine as a whole I think is much more compelling in this one over the original, being more than just a plot piece for Aladdin.

Very enjoyable film.

Amazing effort to the remake of the cartoon Aladdin .. Will Smith made a unique and exciting touch .

As a whole, the movie was entertaining.

quite enjoyable .

but in the movie it's seriously MIND BLOWING!

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

The storyline felt rushed in some parts and to slow in others.

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

It was a bit tedious at first, but once Will Smith entered the picture as the genie I thought the film livened up a lot and was more enjoyable.

Boring .

Exciting exactly how I remember it as a child.

Its a great and an enjoyable movie.

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

Very entertaining .

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

Imagine my disappointment when i saw this bland less menacing version of Jafar.

More enjoyable than i would have thought.

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

Stunning .

Noisy and rather boring .

Very enjoyable.

Here, Will Smith completely butchers these songs, especially "Prince Ali" because of how slow and boring it is compared to the original.

Dialogue converted in hindi was fabulous and if you are going for entertaining purpose it will fulfill it and worth your money.

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

It felt empty in some places.

For a 25 year old, this moving had a really good message and was very entertaining to watch.

Absolutely entertaining!

" The truly evil mystery of Jafar turns into the predictable future aspiring conqueror.

I enjoyed it.

Enjoyable experience!

Thoroughly enjoyed it with the grandkids.

It seems like an enormous waste of money.

Sure, it's worth watching.

It's just a bland live-action like others.

Live action, entertaining and uplifting not one slow or boring moment, the whole movie was a magical, wondrous spectacular!

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

It's a beautifully filmed masterpiece full of stunning scenery & lovely characters with morals & inner strength,there's lots of messages in this CLASSIC.

Really enjoyed it !!.

Every scene he did was enjoyable and very natural!

Why would I want to watch a boring and slow version of the original with none of the colourful, expressive animation and humour when I can watch the original, at ANY TIME, which has the expressive animation and humour?

I'm not sure why there is all of this negativity about this movie, I really enjoyed it.

Spectacular choreography, breathtaking scenery, amazing special effects.

Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Will Smith was just as engaging as was Robin Williams.

I enjoyed it so much and it is so funny, the deducted point is for the costumes little confusion between Arabian and Indian costumes

The worst movie i ever watched .

I enjoyed it .

Worth the watch.

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

Aladdin and Jasmine's performances were honestly the least enjoyable.


The complete OBSESSION with adding in pointless filler and going out of their way to drag out scenes completely ruined the entire film!

It's 2 hrs 8 min long and some of the stuff added was just long and boring.

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.

Nonetheless, most of this new Aladdin is tolerable, even inching toward borderline entertaining.

Mena Massoud looked so much like Aladdin with the charming smile and similiar attitude, Naomi Scott was so beautiful and her voice is breathtaking and Will Smith as the Genie added a really nice touch to the character and he was very funny!

Worth watching.

Watching it in imax 4dx is definitely very stunning and impressive!


Easily one of the worst movies I have ever seen in my life.

Maybe there's "good propaganda" after all.

Bored to super freaking death!

Deeply surprising in how enjoyable it is.

Boring and childish storyline!

Its a sensational classic with well casted characters and an overall hugely enjoyable atmosphere.

So our "climax" is drawn out to excruciating minutia of slow events with no suspense at all.

It made the movie boring and also took a bit long time and it was 128 minutes comparing to the 92 minutes of the animated Aladdin and it was almost perfect and almost the best Disney animated movie ever made.

Mind blowing .

Top it with the teasing pieces of musicals which were beautiful and entertaining!

An entertaining nostalgic ride .

It was because of that fact that maybe the director decided that it should be less serious, and more entertaining for kids.

They were able to bring back the best of the animated version of Aladdin, added colour and cheerfulness, to deliver a very entertaining and funny story.

Will Smith provided a surprisingly unique and enjoyable take on the Genie, whilst still paying respect to Robin Williams' original.

Another in Disney's factory line of nostalgia cash grabs, this dull, forced production wastes the talent of Will Smith in what is basically an ill-conceived riff on Robin Williams' excellent voice work from the original.

My niece got scared near the end and wanted to leave.

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

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

And the addition of the third act chase scene is indicative of the formulaic pushing of all cookie cutter movies Disney pushes.

The music and characters were enjoyable and Will Smith 'made' the movie as Genie.

So just add this to the pile of pointless live-action remakes of Disney classics.

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

Anytime my 11 year old can sit still through a movie, you know your watching an entertaining one.

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

Good entertaining fun.

He was the savior of all the dull and awkward scenes in the movie.

But, let me put it in simple words: the movie was fully enjoyable.


In the end, this film provides an exciting time for children, whilst being a great family film and even suitable for a date-night film.

An all around enjoyable movie!!

Don't waste your money .

I was expecting OK, but found it to be a very enjoyable, well done rework of the original.

Overall it was a good movie but I left the theater not feeling 100% satisfied.

I also really liked Jasmine, she was given a more compelling backstory and a bit more character than she had in the original film.

This movie was breathtaking!

The dancing was controversial among critics, however I thoughroughly enjoyed it.

I had no probs with the CGI, to me it all blended in perfectly in this action packed movie directed by Guy Ritchie (who also directed Sherlock Holmes which I also love).

Waste of money to spent .

Boring, redundant, trimmed to be "modern", Guy Ritchie destroyed King Arthur superbly and with Aladdin he made me bored to the core, with only a few exceptions (scenes) here and there.

Overall, Aladdin is good enough, but is just another bland Disney Remake.

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......

In my personal experience, this movie was amazing and extremely enjoyable.

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.

The casting was pretty good as I thought Will Smith as the genie was the highlight of the film and he held it together making it more enjoyable.

Plus, those cliche.

Bored to freaking death.

Thank you to the cast of Aladdin for an enjoyable production and for inspiring my child and the other children who also danced and sang their way out of the cinema.

Oddly Enjoyable .


The additional songs were quite enjoyable.

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.

Entire film full of boring and overuse singing scene!

As mentioned before, Will Smith puts on quite a fun and enjoyable performance as the genie without trying to overthrow Robin Williams.

First, the acting is kinda weak and bland.

Yet Overall It's fun and enjoyable.

But I feel like kind of boring when I watched it.

The songs that good are the ones with intense sounding drums, Naomi Scott's part and some of Mena Massoud's.

Lots of people are trashing this movie, saying its average and honestly in my opinion it was a very enjoyable and well done live action adaptation of the film with differences here and there and people complaining about Will Smith as Genie, ironically enough he is probably the best part about the movie that and the music, the music held up very well and the reimagined pieces from the original 90's Aladdin film are still great and the acting in the movie was great as well, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine was👌and Mena Massoud was great as Aladdin...

It was like somebody put their hands up and said whoa whoa whoa because the movie does slow down quite a bit.

He has a Faraway look in his eye that only comes to surface in his intense anger, and it's a different kind of chilling.

As an adult seeing this film with the youngsters, I can honestly say that I enjoyed it and I'm sure you will too!

Now the original story was far more exciting and adventurous; I remember reading it in an old old book when I was a child.

All in all, a more-than-satisfactory entertaining two hours.

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

The visuals were stunning and beautiful.

I watched in 4dx and it helped make the movie more enjoyable especially when they did the magic carpet ride.

If you want to spend an afternoon entertaining, with a movie that teaches you something of life, fast, colorful and musical, you can not miss it.

The Good: If you were a fan of the original, you will find this enjoyable at least.

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

It picks up a little towards the middle, but holy hell is the first hour of this beyond boring.

I had low expectations for this movie but was surprised and really enjoyed it.

For about the first 90 minutes, this was tremendously (and surprisingly) enjoyable - the humor, the music, the animation, the CGI.

Will Smith Saves an Otherwise Dull Reimagining of a Classic .

Very entertaining & heart warming....

Worth watching!

Definitely worth the watch!

This is a movie that while made alright, it feels completely pointless.

Very colorful enjoyable movie .

The soundtrack and movie is overall enjoyable.

The music was subpar, it felt super slow and not the right upbeat pace for the movie.

Bright colours, stunning costumes.

Really boring.

An entertaining movie for the whole family.

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

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

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

The original and the Broadway version are tremendously better, so save your money.

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.

Smith is a littlee unsettling when he's blue, but he does bring his own kind of pizzazz to the role of the Genie, Massoud is a little bland as the hero, Scott is impressive as the beautiful and outspoken princess, and Kanzari is a little lacking as the villain.

This movie didn't need to exist, when its not doing a poor job imitating the original, it's just plane bland.

At some point, they wanted to leave.

The acting and songs were very entertaining.

It was fun and entertaining.

Disney's remake of its 1992 masterpiece 'Aladdin', however innovative, lively, and visually stunning, proves insipid in the grand shadow of its former original.

Boring and cheesy.

Mind Blowing .

Its worth watching even if you have watched the original.

On the the other side of the coin, the things they added were completely pointless and Mena Massoud (Aladdin) is a horrible actor with an even worse singing voice.

Brilliantly executed on all levels and extraordinarily entertaining.

Simply Genius and Mind Blowing.

The movie was enjoyable from the beginning to somehow the end, no better choice could have been found to play the genie than will Smith.

A Mind blowing movie .

There were times where he even managed to be more compelling than the original because his zaniness wasn't overplayed and because he had the features of a human being.

It just loses a lot of the memorable moments of the original, and the old songs just feel boring, mainly due to the animated version having constant effects and surprises in each song.

Will makes the movie worth watching .

Excellent acting by the main actors Great music Well done and worth watching A fun time with well done updates

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

It's an enjoyable watch.

I expected low manipulative tones and crazy maniacal peaks, and his performance overall was quite monotone.

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

Simply enjoyable with good songs and excellent CG.

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

The story, cast, acting, setting, are all decent, maybe not much of fleshing out of side characters such as Iago, but it did a good job of entertaining and retelling the story of Aladdin (One Thousand and One Nights) with an actual live cast.

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

Not to mention Jafar, the acting was plain and boring.

Just wow, mind blowing.

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

Engaging and entertaining.

The disjointed screenplay by John August and Guy Ritchie disappoints with its lack of wit, humor, and emotion.

There were times when I was bored or disinterested in the plot.

Aladdin is played about as boring as you can imagine.

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

Omg the first 20 minutes are soooo slow I almost dozed off.

This movie is worth watching.

They didn't lack any, but they made the musical more boring, more forgettable and less exciting.

Beautiful but Empty .

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 Whole New "EXCITING" World .

Though the memory of that never faded, I found this one more entertaining may be because of its indianness because if too many songs.

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

Stunning .

I highly recommend it.

Kids' movie with many unnecessary and boring songs .

Anyway, enjoyable movie.

Will Smith did the role differently in his own special way but he also played it very well and was very enjoyable to watch.

Overall a boring and technically poor movie.

Will Smith gives an enjoyable energetic and restrained performance as the Genie.

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.

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

I found it enjoyable enough.

Fun, exciting, dazzling...

Will Smith was mind blowing with his vocals.

The visuals are absolutely breathtaking.

Worth the watch.

Absolutely Breathtaking .

Save your money and watch the cartoon

I think Guy Richie may have gotten carried away and because of the direction he went with the movie I think it is the explanation for why the movie and the acting came across quite bland.

The scenario was stunning, surpassing my expectations for how cheerful and beautiful it was, which allowed to emulate the genie's personality perfectly.

More enjoyable than I would have thought .

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.

The story was bland and forced.

It is for this reason the film is very entertaining.

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

Aladdin is a family movie,its funny,the music is great,but in the begining of the movie is just very boring,and there are a lot of things that doesn´t have sense,like: how is posible that a poor man a thive,could be noirished and the villan of the movie Jafar had two chances two kills Aladin,and he didn´t do it.

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.

Boring .

It's worth watching even for adults .

Despite its attractive music, it falls into the unoriginal and repetitive, and fails to transmit the same as the original.

I find it enjoyable.

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

With stunning costumes by Michael Wilkinson and Production Design by Gemma Jackson, Aladdin is a kaleidoscope of colour.

A very very very extremely entertaining movie .

The actor is far too young, the character itself comes across as opportunistic, easy to fool and the acting is very "fast", usually villains need to be dark and slow/calculating to come across as menacing and dangerous.

My whole family really enjoyed it.

Worst movie I've ever seen .

Possibly one of the worst movies in history of cinema.

Will smith is only reason this movie is worth watching

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

But it's still good and enjoyable for you, Disney fans.

The visuals were stunning and beautiful.

I really loved this one and I highly recommend it to everyone.

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

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.

Entertaining with a perfect ending .

The movie is fun, emotional, colorful, fast paced and very entertaining.

It was enjoyable.

Aladdin is spectacular, entertaining and the decor , costumes & CGI are top notch.

Furthermore, Jafar was a compelling villain and Mena Massood was the perfect choice for Aladdin.

In the course of the story, the Genie would make the fans laugh, through funny gags and unexpected amusing moments.

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

I enjoyed Aladdin (2019) & Will Smith made a very entertaining genie and storyteller.


Visually it looks very decent with all choreography's and cgi BUT the story ,the script, the flow I could say its all so predictable and weakly worked out Don't get me wrong it is a piece that you have to see Will smith is holding to his character and keeps this film moving forward, without Will I don't think that this film would get me even to cinema,,,, Well made but empty....

It's watchable, it's sentimental, it's enjoyable.

Looooved loooved it soo good the actors the music the faniliar elements wish it was longer and had more in between scenes so worth watching it again and again!!

When you see that kids are yawning theough the magical carpet flying in the sky segment of the film, you know the wonder is missing.

And Will Smith was just plain boring.

) Most fascinating is its study in identity textures.

Funny and exciting .

But still good and enjoyable.

Beautiful, stunning and thrilling.

Not as great as the original, but enjoyable enough to love.

Really bland, imo.

Boring .

I love the way Marwan delivered his dialogues as Jafar, there was a slow stealth to them that enhanced Jafar's villainous qualities.

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

The ending also very predictable!

Naomi Scott was just as stunning as she should have been portraying the gorgeous princess (eventually Sultan) Jasmine.

I really enjoyed it a lot !

The animated version had a compelling and hypnotic villain.

All in all, an entertaining film although I can't really see the reason it was made (apart from the obvious, financial one).

This Film is mind blowing,the production of Disney is very Amazing.

Naomi Scott is perfect for this role; she looks graceful and gorgeous with her stunning outfits.

I think Will Smith was fine in the movie, he made the movie more enjoyable when viewing and when he was off, it often got boring.

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

In fact, the whole first act is flat, at least, and very boring at most.

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.

It's big on spectacle and looked great at times, even if watching parkour (even if the character doing it is singing) bores me as much as over long car chases.

This movie felt unnecessarily slow or fast at points.

It completely lacked originality and I got bored watching it and fast forwarded it to the end.

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

It's colorful, entertaining, and absolutely beautiful.

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

This reviewer was about to have a snorefest until Will Smith's performance highlighted this potential turkey.

Very magical and fun and action packed, it also has some new songs and new scenes to lengthen the movie to over 2 hours.

It was super entertaining and I thought will Smith did an amazing job!

That all being said, I wish I could've enjoyed it more.

Rajah to was bland (the tiger).

Slow and sluggish plot development in most parts of the movie.

Of course there is going to be a comparison of Will Smith to Robin Williams, and in avoiding doing so, I still found his performance to be bland and basically just phoned in.

Keep showing audience unnecessary and boring dancing scene!

The movie was very enjoyable and I had a smile on my face for most of the time.

Even our grandchildren were bored .

Naomi Scott was stunning as Jasmine.

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

In conclusion, I didn't like Aladdin, and I wish I could've enjoyed it more.

Unwatchable .

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.

Musical story telling is a new idea, but it seems a bit boring for me.

This movie is stunning.

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.

"), confusing plot elements, extremely lame original music pieces, and otherwise lame attempts to be original while keeping the classic story intact.

Thoroughly Enjoyable .

However I actually thoroughly enjoyed it.

Very Enjoyable and not just a Will Smith movie .

The cinematography ranges from beautiful to dull.

This movie is very enjoyable.

The visuals are stunning and it is great to watch.

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

Fun and Enjoyable movie with a great soundtrack.

Yes, it was missing some of the magic from the animation, but it was still very enjoyable.

A vibrant & grand, if a bit bland rendition of the animated classic .

It's enjoyable and all the actors are very good especially Will Smith.

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.

Watch the original, it's way more entertaining.

Most importantly it was entertaining.

Finally, the movie is just pointless.

What I enjoyed the most the story - besides bringing more modern concepts in mentality and politics, it was great that they filled the empty spots and made the story a bit more convincing and appealing to all kinds of fans and audience.

But unfortunately he didn't, and as a result he's very bland.

The pacing is either too fast or too slow.

Very well made and so good, funny and enjoyable.

Her presence will give you relief from get boring from such old times Arabian tales which are mostly from magical background.

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.

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

The finale is stunning.

I enjoyed it.

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.

funny, engaging & entertaining!
