Aladdin - Movie Review

The newest Disney Live Action remake is a classic of the 90's. Here's my review for ALADDIN!




  • I agree with everything you said...I left the theater feeling like the film was rushed. Lacked weight, like you said, which the animated film had. The carpet ride number lacked a WOW. But I did enjoy it.

  • The beginning of the movie was fucking terrible but it got better as it went on. I didn’t like Jasmines speechless song, Jafar was bad, Aladdin’s screaming expressions were awful, but other than that it was alright.

  • What do I have to say about this movie.......? This movie was the Best Disney movie remake I have ever seen in my life! Although Jafar was still awful and boring and the father of Jasmine was kinda dull.. However the rest of the movie was fantastic! I really loved how they made alot references to the cartoon movie like how the genie still did the hilarious actions by turning into a women 😂 dont get me wrong I laughed so hard. The singing was outstanding and the acting was incredible!

  • It was an entertaining movie. A different interpretation on an animated movie.

  • I was really skeptical going in to this movie. With that said I really enjoyed it, BUT they completely ruined Jafar. Painfully so. And some really memorable scenes were changed and not for the better.

  • I just saw the film, I enjoyed it overall. The most noticeable flaw was the cast for Jafar, he did not feel like a Jafar to me lol.

  • I have seen this movie and I thought that they did it really well I liked will smith as the genie and I liked the songs and the actors who played Princes Jasmine and Aladdin.

  • Just got back from seeing Aladdin and your review misses the mark. But we can agree to disagree, as you loved the Force Awakens which I found to be an insipid, poorly made film which destroyed classic characters. This film does not destroy Aladdin; it's very exciting and fun to watch in its own right. I almost skipped the film after watching your review, but I came out of the theater thoroughly satisfied with what I saw on the screen. The film is shot in the style of the classic Sinbad films of the 1960s--sure, some of the acting was cheesy and the direction could have been better in places , but the orchestrations were fantastic, the costumes and cinematography lush, the script surprisingly good especially with respect to the development of the Jasmine character. My only complaints had to do with the length and portrayal of Jafar--a few sequences could have been cut with no harm done, and I preferred the comic-sinister edge of the original Jafar. But overall, the original Aladdin (cartoon) gets an A+ and this one gets a solid B+ from me (bordering on an A-). Did I need this film? No. Was I entertained and was it worthwhile? Yes. And that's why I go to the theaters--to be entertained.

  • Why compare it to the original? Did you try watching the movie as if it's your first time seeing it? I did. And it was good. So good. CGI Genie was good too. John August and Guy Richie made an adaptation that wasn't trying to go one to one with the original and they did it well.

  • I feel like I’m in the minority when I say this movie sucked. It was funny in some parts, but other than that the acting was pretty sub par, CGI was pretty bad for Disney, and lots of character moments didn’t make sense

  • Here comes all of the "ThE OriGiNAL wAS bEttER" comments. Honestly, I'm so tired of this trope. Cant people just think for themselves? A movie is not automatically better because it came first and was animated, and a live action ADAPTATION is not bad because of the inverse. Imo, this live action was actually better than the original. But I know everyone will attack that opinion, because the desire to have the majority opinion is stronger than fairly assessing a films quality for what it does and giving it the credit it deserves. Oh well...

    • @Celsea C I'm sorry. For clarification I did not intend to say that the 2D animation/anime/"cartoon" medium was mediocre, it is absolutely not. I love animation as well, and I actually believe that animation is capable of creating better stories, worlds and characters than 99% of live action films/TV shows. I was just speaking specifically about "Aladdin", the original 2D Disney movie. I will admit though that I haven't seen that film in a couple of years so it may not even be fair for me to judge it, so I apologize for that. From what i remember though I enjoyed it but i was just not as impressed or captivated by it as much as some of Disney's other works. It wasn't that original story or character wise and so I believe that the live actions changes made up for that for me. Honestly the point of my comment was just that many times people will blindly bash these live action ADAPTATIONS of these older, reneissance Disney era films simply because they are "different from the original" even when if the live action version came first they wouldn't love the animated one as much as the live. You can't let nostalgia or a bandwagon of opinions impact your judgement of a good film which is genuinely good in what it does. People should be thankful that Disney is even reviving their favorite cartoons, instead of complaining, and that was just my main point, I guess.

    • mediocre cartoon?? have you no idea how many months that took back in the day? what a huge team to work on it? I understand your point but can you not being so condescending? Animation is something that people study and should be appreciated. The original had character and atmosphere which stemmed from animation. The faces were very expressive and all the feelings of the characters got out perfectly. Unlike some of the performances in the movie

      Celsea CCelsea C4 gün önce
  • Honestly when Disney releases a GOOD live action ADAPTATION (that everyone knows they were gonna go to in theatres since the trailer) and then everybody whines about the whole "ThE oriGiNAL iS aLwAYs bETTER" its so goddamn ANNOYING. people want to hop on that bandwagon so bad that they cant use actual unbiased judgement to enjoy something or recognize its quality. This Aladdin was fantastic, and so were The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast. Dont let stupid superstitions cloud your judgement/enjoyment of good movies. Ffs.

  • What the hell man? The movie was actually really good. The only part I would agree on was the fast forward part, but I think I noticed just because you said it. It held it's own apart from the animation. I even cried a bit at the end, and I DIDN'T expect that. Also, I watched in in 4D, so maybe enhanced the movie. Anyway, I can't imagine how many people didn't watch this listing to you. Oh, well, the the movie still did great regardless or all the "negative" people .

  • About Disney sequels, they made those straight to dvd's so that new animators could be trained and train for the proper disneymovies and the budget for those was lower. That's why they mostly lack in quality and stuff, not because nobody cared. They were still well made imo tho ^^

  • You said you wanted more character development, but then you said the original was hour & half, making it seem you wanted it to be 1.5. That couldn’t happen tho, They could have just did the development but added 20 min extra to the film. The movie wasn’t sloppy like X-Men was. They had an actual plot, which gave the overall reason & the Genie was a Blue will smith basically the same thing, still Great & entertaining blue & brown. Now mayb they could have done more character development forsure, overall i loved the movie. No alcohol required

  • If the live action remake were released in the '90s and the animated version was released in 2019, then we would be saying that the animation was worse hands-down. I'm not saying the reboot beats the original, I'm just saying that it is fantastic in its own right and nostalgia for the original is what drives people to criticize the reboot.

They were filled with awe and wonder and she couldn’t stop talking about it (it replaced princess & the frog & frozen as her favorite movie).

He and Naomi Scott could have been great with the right script, cast, direction, vision and quality assurance. An estimated budget of $185 million, complete freedom of choice of a world full of talent and this is what they come up with, LOL GTFOH.

  • The cave should’ve had movement. They should have done the whole scene instead of it being part of the montage. Jafar was eh not so menacing. Blue genie sounded like he was reading lines. Kinda like his son did in Karate Kid. Normal genie was fine for some reason. The new jasmine song didn’t fit with the old songs. Great job with the friend like me sequence and the Prince Ali one. It was ok. It felt rushed sometimes. Now I did think of having return of Jafar made. That would give them more freedom.

  • There was never a moment when I didn't feel like I was watching the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. His portrayal of the Genie seemed monotone and generic at best. The original Genie from the animation was based on Robin Williams style of comedy and acting. Will Smiths style of comedy simply doesn't work for the Genie. Will Smith can't do voices and he can't sing or rap. The rap made me cringe orange soda. I lasted about 22 mins before leaving, which is about your average length of a "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" episode. RIP
