    1- they didn’t use Anwar Jibawi as the main male character. 2- Lots of unnecessary Singing and dancing that if you cut them out from the movie nothing would change at all. 3- They Changed the ending. The genie won’t lose his powers and become some human. He just gets freed and still hang out with the guy. That’s what we watched as kids and teens in the series and how it is written in the books.

    The animation is one of my all time favourite Disney films. Full of laughs, heart, emotion and an incredible story. This was just a total mess. The lead actor is so incredibly wooden, and emotionless, the only good thing going for him is his fantastic dance moves (maybe stick to that from now on). Will Smith is good but forgettable. I totally get that he was trying to make it his own but I’m sorry nothing can out do Robin Williams, and unfortunately that’s what this film would have needed to make it great, someone even better than the original. The actor that plays Jafar is next. AWFUL, not menacing enough and it makes for a very lack-lustre performance. Naomi Scott on the other hand was absolutely brilliant as Jasmine. Her voice when she sings Speechless gave me goosebumps. She is the only reason that I gave 2 stars instead of 1. Maybe Disney needs to stop the live action now, I’m really dreading The Lion King and Mulan now as they’re both 2 more favourites. Fingers crossed.

    With the exception of Will Smith whom I have always liked as an actor, this movie and the CGI will never compare to the original with Robin Williams. I am soooo tired of Hollywood remaking movies to make more money in the inner circle. nothing creative anymore. It’s simply about making money$$$$. Its just regurgitation. Hollywood is no longer creative, with some small exceptions, and is clearly in the business of remaking movies over and over again.

    This film serves no purpose. Think about it, it is a live action remake of one of the most beloved, fun, and creative animated features of all time that came out just 26 years ago! It’s not like it’s an “ancient masterpiece being brought to a new generation” it’s not like it’s a a touch up of a flawed script or visuals. Every single aspect of film about the original is superior to this unoriginal product that reeks of laziness.

    No way. Never shoulda remade it. It’s like a broadway show.

    Possibly one of the worst movies in history of cinema! HUGE disappointment and a disrespect to the audience and the admirers of the Original Animation. Personally I did not expect much from it to begin with, but when you see a film that is written by August and Ritchie, you obviously get excited for the movie. but this was out of the picture, this much mess… Worst choose of casting, no passion, and complete ruiner of nostalgia and lousy romance that just does not fit.and to be honest, Smith was the best thing about this movie, his presence made me forget what a horrible picture I’m watching.

    Why do I have this Jeff Goldblum sort of feeling about these new live action movies?Disney tried so hard to see if thy COULD do live action version of animated classics that they never stopped to ask themselves if they SHOULD.Damn… I always disagreed with Goldblum’s character but maybe he was right.

    I watch most of the AAA movies just to stay on track. Often, I am disappointed, but I get by.Not this time. This was so incredibly bad I couldn’t get past the first 10 minutes. The acting is bad, but script is even worse. The CGI (not that I care) is also pretty bad.I would advise against watching this.

    Aladdin supposed to be the adventurous guy that get into trouble, but he’s wild and smart. but this character was so dumb and hesitating all the time, he lacked confidence and adventurous point of view to life.

    Will Smith singing? Right, that should make you wanna skip this. All remakes now. Really is sad. Hollywood rely too much on CGI, and very few movies deliver.The acting was so unbelievably bad. The cast was straight out of central casting. Beautiful, smooth skin, white teeth, and gorgeous smiles.The tolerance for terrible movies is extremely high and gets higher by year.The songs were so corny and the music didn’t fit the genre at all. The writing was a joke. Nothing authentic about this. It was a glorified broadway musical, so if that is what you’re into, you’ll dig it.Did I say the acting was horrible?

    I know everyone wants to compare this to the Animated version, but don’t. Take it as it comes and you will thoroughly enjoy it. It does stay pretty faithful to the animated version I think. Will Smith as the genie could never be the Robyn Williams genie, but I don’t think he tries to. He does fantastically well in his own right. Absolutely loved the Prince Ali song where Aladdin enters the city as the prince. Brilliantly colorful spectacle captured really well. Jafar missed a little for me as had lost the smarmy-ness of the animated version. The songs were great and the Aladdin and Jasmine characterization was pretty spot on. I think kids would love this and I would definitely recommend it.

    What’s to say. Before even filming we knew Guy Ritchie was obviously the wrong choice to direct the film. His style doesn’t quite lend itself to this type of film. Miscast Mena Massoud didn’t bring any real character to the role of Aladdin he was simply okay/ functional. Will Smith is as usual charismatic and had difficult shoes to fill after Robin Williams’ take on the genie but he was seriously let down by the VFX in blue genie mode and a weak script. Another miscast Naomi Scott gave a good performance but I always felt i was looking at Indian and not Middle Eastern. In fact the film IS very bollywood with the Jasmin, Aladdin dance off Indian Style (and to Indian music) then Russian dancing(?) plus other times an Indian soundtrack. And i’m not even going to talk about that sorry excuse for a villain. No, no i am not. For a Disney movie set in large Kingdom it sure does feel quite quite small. It looked cheap too. Weird. Ultimately a dreadfully executed cash grab of a movie that no one asked for. Thanks D. Thankfully this is exactly what i expected having seen the trailers.

    Disappointed at how terrible this movie is. We reached a point where we had to just walk out of the theater. The acting was horrible. The singing was bad. I felt like I was watching another episode of Once Upon A Time. I have no problem with Disney making live action movies, but Aladdin should not have been one of them.

    Like many of the Disney live action adaptations, this film utterly fails to understand what made the original so great to begin with. Moments of character growth or interaction feel rushed and are changed up from the original, yet the outcome in the story still illogically remains the same. Some of the additional scenes around new characters simply feel laughable and out of place. The additional song written for this film heavily clashes with the musical style of the existing ones and the instrumental accompaniment of the songs in general sounds too modern and not like a classical musical anymore. The humor in this movie is very hit and miss. Some lines and moments are indeed extremely enjoyable, while most others seem too forced. The VFX in this film are not entirely up to task and will undoubtedly look dated in a few years time. Most importantly, the overall spectacle feels much less impactful than the original’s. Overall, there would be much more to go into. But this should be enough in summary.

    As soon as this live action version of Aladdin was first announced, it seems certain people were against it. While I too have fond memories of seeing the original animated version at the theatre, I was at least willing to give this one a chance. I’m glad I did. Firstly, people need to realise an animated film and live-action film are two different things. Some things that work in animation just won’t translate too well into live-action. The other thing to accept is that, short of resurrecting Robin Williams, there was no way they were ever going to be able to replicate his unique take on the character of the Genie. Once you open your mind to the possibility that something can be ‘different’ but also *good*; then you’ll have a more pleasant experience. That’s what we get here: a movie that is familiar, but at the same time new/different (and that’s not a bad thing).From the very beginning, the movie is somewhat different to what we might be expecting when we’re introduced to who is telling the story. While it was immediately evident to me what was going on, it wasn’t a ‘bad’ addition. After sweeping shots set to the song ‘Arabian Nights’, we’re introduced to the ‘street rat’ named Aladdin. Although much fuss has been made about the Genie casting, if Aladdin had been miscast, then the whole film would’ve suffered. Thankfully, I can say that I almost immediately liked Mena Massoud in the role. He’s funny, got moves/charm, makes for a likeable ‘thief’ and his relationship with his pet monkey, Abu, is as good as I’d hoped it’d be. Speaking of, although people think of CGI characters badly a lot of the time, it must be made clear the animal companions in this are all wonderfully brought to life/fully-realised characters. Abu is expressive, funny, and helpful (despite sometimes getting them both into trouble).Not before long Aladdin encounters Princess Jasmine (a well-cast Naomi Scott, who does a lot with the character and should make most Jasmine fans proud), who’s undercover among the people. I was afraid that the movie would rush through their first meeting, but was happy with the amount of time devoted to them developing an interest in each other. I could instantly tell that the beloved character of Jasmine was in safe hands as portrayed by Naomi Scott and that she had nice chemistry with Massoud’s Aladdin. Although not given as much to do as Abu, Jasmine’s loyal tiger companion, Rajah, is another lovely animal created with CGI, who I appreciated wasn’t largely ignored. Jasmine’s other loyal friend, her handmaiden named Dalia, is actually a stand-out character in the movie. Nasim Pedrad has excellent comic timing, as does Naomi Scott, which is on full display in a fun scene where Aladdin comes to the palace and Jasmine attempts to maintain her cover.The one ‘miss’ in the casting department is that of Marwan Kenzari as villainous Jafar. While others had pre-judged him based on the trailers alone, I was willing to give him a chance to make up for his lack of sinister voice with what would hopefully be at least a menacing performance. Sadly, he lacks even that. There’s nothing particularly memorable about his portrayal (even near the end when he’s given every opportunity to unleash in full-on villain mode, he falls way short). About the only ‘positive’ I could find regarding his character is his animal companion of Iago. The red parrot might not be quite as talkative as the animated version, but he *does* talk (and in a much more bird-like way), getting a few funny lines here and there (I’d expect nothing less from Alan Tudyk providing the voice). It’s just disappointing that Jafar’s miscast, and thus the ‘weak link’ in the film.What most people are probably wondering about is Will Smith as the Genie. I actually thought he was pretty good here (and I found him more likeable in this role than I have in any movie I’ve seen him in since probably the first Men In Black). There are just one or two instances where I felt he tried to emulate Robin Williams’ version and it didn’t quite work, but on the whole I felt he brought his own energy/style to the character of Genie and it (mostly) worked. The most important thing was the friendship that he formed with Aladdin. While Smith’s Genie may seem a bit more snarky than you might expect, when it comes to the emotional beats, his performance hits the right notes (especially near the end).Speaking of notes, “What about the songs?” you may ask. I was pretty happy with them, there were just the right amount and they didn’t feel particularly intrusive in any of the scenes they were featured. Even the new song, ‘Speechless’, isn’t too bad (though there are those who’ll no doubt complain). Massoud and Scott have really nice singing voices and did their songs justice, I thought. Will Smith’s also decent with his main songs in the movie (the end credits one I could’ve done without, though).I must also praise the costumes (Jasmine’s are all stunning, as is Jasmine herself), the use of vibrant colours is quite impressive and the overall look of the film feels like something new/different to what we’ve seen time and time again in films (especially Disney ones). Things I forgot to mention: the Magic Carpet has as much ‘character’ as in the original (I especially appreciated seeing how close friends Carpet and Abu became by the end), and even the Sultan’s head guard, Hakim, is given some depth.In conclusion, if you go into the theatre already disliking/hating the film based on just the trailers, then you’re probably going to leave the same way you entered: bitter and thinking things like “It ruined my childhood!” (such a rubbish statement). Just try accepting this is a different thing and hopefully you’ll enjoy it.

    Rating 9.2/10 Aladdin truly is magical. Aladdin has a long and illustrious legacy. As usual, the plot of beggar Aladdin and Princess Jasmine fighting for their love is incredible. This movie was great !! It has comedy,action,romance,adventure and everything else including in all genres of all movie. The acting from everyone was great. Good acting performance by Will Smith a.k.a Genie, Mena Massoud a.k.a Aladdin & Naomi Scott a.k.a Jasmine. For all of you, go see it you wont regret it !! Absolute musical perfection.

    The animated Aladdin in 1992 was my favourite animation of that decade. So I was looking forward to a live-action remake of this classic.Let me talk about the good. The special effects were well done and it made you feel right in the middle of an exotic country The sets were beautiful and scenery was eye-catching The actors were well chosen and looked like live versions of the cartoon.Now the bad. Why would the director choose to deviate from the well-thought out script of a classic and come up with something that is worse? Just to show something different? Too many scenes felt like it was ad-libbed because there was no proper dialogue to begin with. The jokes kept on repeating again and again. In fact the actors didn’t seem to know what emotion to show because the dialogue had no point.The comedy from Jafaar…a big plus in the original, was nowhere to be found in this iteration.They injected feminist/hollywood ideology into a fairytale romance. Jasmine who was so loveable as a strong-willed heroine who fought for what is right, was turned into an equal-rights advocate who’s main goal was to be a Sultan. What a disgrace? If the script writers want to tell a story about a feminist, why not make another movie, instead of destroying an age-old classic.There was no chemistry between the leads. I believe that goes back to the terrible script. The dialogue between them was so awkward, you have to wonder how any romance can develop out of it. In fact, when they started singing a whole new world, it seemed so forced and out of place.All in all, the director I think the director did not take this movie seriously. Not only was the script half-baked or non existent, the refused to use the original material for the sake of change! What we have is barely watchable, incoherent, and clearly rushed movie. This is the last of these remakes I’m watching for sure!

    The original was a “chef-d’oeuvre”, a masterpiece, and either Disney would make this one completely different, or recreate it with a big “chabang” of color, acting, singing and interpretation. Who chose the actors? The acting was bad, Will Smith as the genie??? Everyone agrees that reenact Robin Williams would be a though task, Will Smith has done some great things but here failed completely. Jaffar, that powerful imponent deceitful character, again, I’m sorry, Mr Kenzari wasn’t up to the task. The scenery was bad, I mean, it would be acceptable for a Sunday morning Disney channel, 8 to 10 year old audience, not for a movie theater motion picture. The singing like wise, awful, no emotion. Disney has a big task ahead to redeem itself. This is far from your standards.

    As mentioned Aladdin feels suited to ABC pertinent to children under the age if 12. Very forced acting similar to days of our life. Strong American accents and body language!

    I was left cringing during each musical sequence due to the blatant over use of autotune. The actors bring no emotion to the story.
