Aladdin - Movie Review

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



  • I loved the actors more than the film itself..

  • 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...

  • Ahh yes of course, live action matter how good/enjoyable they are they will be underrated simply because there was a medicore cartoon made before it. Rip.

    • @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

  • 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.

  • Why didn’t they keep the same storyline ?

  • The Animation one is the best with the late and great Robin Williams 🧞‍♂️ RIP. Also, too much Aladdin for me Broadway show 🎭, cruise show🚢 and of course the original flick.

  • 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

  • Aladdin can’t act and Will Smith can’t sing and Jasmine wants to be Sultan... could care less about “true love” Ya know, the Soviets went thru this when they made sure all the “arts” delivered a POSITIVE MESSAGE for the People - they called it “Social Realism” - but we can just callnit what it was... propaganda... and this was corporate propaganda done BAAAAD!

  • 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.

Then today I took my 6 years old niece and saw the movie through her eyes. 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).

  • Dude, I don’t know how you didn’t give this film either Dog Shit or You’re not going to remember it in T-20 seconds. Disney are to blame for this blunder not Will Smith. 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.

  • One of my complaints is when Aladdin 2019 wished the genie to be free becoming humain with no power which he supposed to maintain his half semi cosmic power like in the continuation (so in short he was 100% when imprison and when freed he was 50%) if a sequel is planned the return of jafar they need the Genie half semi Cosmic power to fight abysmal & Jafar

  • 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

  • The beginning was a bit too fast paced for my taste, the middle part was my favorite. Then the ending.... it was okay for me. Though I do give Will Smith a thumbs up for trying to divert his version of Genie away from Robin Williams. I do wish they fixed the CGI of his body.... Jafar and Iago? Almost forgot they were actually a threat till the end. Honestly, we don't see the full extent of Jafar as a powerful sorcerer in this movie. And I don't know why, but it feels like Jasmine sang more than Aladdin. I love the song 'Speechless', though I wish she sang it at the beginning when arguing against her father about her betrothal of after he leaves her before she escapes the palace. I don't know, I felt that the song was wasted since all the characters around her didn't listen to her feelings about no one listening to her. It would have had a bigger impact to see the reactions of those around her while she was singing.

  • Good or not, I still see no point in watching this. We know the story, and have a version with beautiful animation. Why watch it again, but now slightly grounded in reality because it's live-action? Just my thoughts. If you liked it, who am I to judge?

  • Just saw it and had a good time...but a couple of complaints. The scene fast forwarding was off setting, the audio wasn't balanced and clashes the score with the actors voices more than once. The casting for Jafar was WAY OFF! I chuckled at the guy...not villian material. Certainly doesn't measure up to the voice presence of Johnathan Freeman. Will Smith was GREAT! He almost carries the film on his own and he really makes it work. Musical numbers and visual production were good.👍With current Disney I expected some social political awareness, but was SHOCKED at the level they went to in this film. 😲 They literally de-railed their own story and turned the third act into a political service announcement. Was also shocked to learn this was a Guy Richie film, because it doesn't feel like one! Not his signature style at all. It was entertaining, a little shaky on a production side, great visuals...good music, overkill on the politics and a let down in the third act...but overall fun! Their raking in the Disney Dollars as I type. 😆

    • @WolofWhispers • Honestly I think it's just a bunch of butt hurt white folks pissed that a black guy is playing the genie. Which is unfair because Will Smith did such an AMAZING job . People keep bringing up race with this film, and it bothers me because we should just be happy that colored people are finally being embraced in cinema ... I think the race based criticism is mainly from white people and we shouldn't let their useless, culture-less views on things ruin Aladdin. it is a beautiful film and is inspiring colored people all over the world to be proud of who they are and to believe in themselves.

  •  The most confusing scene for me was when Jasmine starts randomly singing the song "speechless" as she's being taken captive by Jafar's soldiers. I kid you not, after she finished singing , I heard people mumbling throughout the theater "what just happened?" , "what the fuck?" , "why is she singing?" ... I personally disliked the song, and when combined with the expression on Naomi Scott's face , it made jasmine appear very whiny and bratty. It was sad because this scene had so much potential to be a real tear jerker , but the song completely ruined it and wasted everyone's time... -__-

You watch this for its visuals and atmosphere as well as the decent music and singing. Combining it all together you get a show! Don’t expect Goodfellas level of acting here. Go in expecting to see a broadway type play and you’ll be happier. Trust me. Lol
