Fun-time singalong - four stars of family entertainment.

Aladdin surpasses previous Disney remakes with its unique aesthetic and welcome updates to the original, but some aspects still hold it back from true greatness.

Aladdin is everything it had to be, and yet, like our conflicted hero, we'll no doubt wish it could have been more.

...a somewhat needless (though relatively painless) live-action update.

As for Big Will? It's a double-edged sword. It's completely unfair to criticise him for not being Robin Williams, however in a movie designed in Disney labs to tug at your nostalgia, you can't help but compare.

The music is very good, and it features a couple of actors who can really sing those memorable songs well. Aladdin has exceptional music because most of its songs were written at a time when Walt Disney Pictures had some exceptional musical talent.

Despite my blue Will Smith-fuelled reservations about the film, I was immediately transported to my childhood living room and began to lap up the buzz of the Kingdom Of Agrabah with the same enthusiasm of an easily amused four-year-old.

The recently released live-action remake of the movie captures some of the magical qualities of the original because of the performance of Will Smith as the genie and a talented team of special effects conjurers.

It is definitely not the disaster that a bunch of us were worried it was going to be. But, it's certainly not a whole new world; it's more of the same.

Aladdin is heartwarming and hilarious, and even though it's a remake of the animated classic, it still feels very refreshing.

...the good is most of the cast, especially Mena Massoud as Aladdin.

Guy Richie manages to recreate most of the magic found in the original thanks to a committed and talented cast and crew.

Fun, colorful, pure and joyful...as a country, we need this movie right now.

Whilst I wasn't sure about the need for the movie, it's still a cool story to revisit. It's light, humorous and appealing.

It puts a spotlight on the cartoon's issues, but can't quite fix them in a satisfactory way. [It] becomes a nice companion piece to the other rather than improvement.

... more Indian influence to craft a Sinbad-like fantasy Arabia, the live-action remake is intent upon entertaining all audiences while stepping on as few sandaled toes as possible.
June 12, 2019
Ultimately, Disney's Aladdin is not a perfect movie. However, the film does hit all the right notes when it comes to nostalgia and representation. The film is bubbly and fun, a bright spot in what can often be a dark world.

Succeeds on the talents of its attractive, charismatic cast and the focused efforts of director Gut Ritchie.

This is not the unmitigated disaster most people were preparing themselves for. It is, by and large, an entertaining companion to the original animated film, with Ritchie elevating the material just enough to make the effort worthwhile.

'Aladdin' sings with female empowerment.
