    Some movies warn you of the flaws that they will present throughout the whole movie just from the looks of the previews, and there are times we are still compelled to watch that movie for not the appeal that it brings to the screen, but more of the reputation it once had. I am one of them, and for this remake of “Aladdin” it was unfortunately one of those scenarios. Now i am not saying the movie was a complete failure, but in many areas it was a missed opportunity for greatness. Its fairly easy to remake a movie such as a Disney classic because especially in animation, the work is usually cut out for the director. Guy Ritchie should have suspected this, the animated characters in the original Aladdin had the demeanor and mannerisms of real professional actors, it felt more authentic, for instance the elephant in the room being will smith, we know he looks like a genie, but certainly doesn't behave like one, it feels as if he’s more of a therapist with insecurities of his own, which isn't as funny and charming as when Robin Williams was genie, he was confident in his own “blue skin” he was self assured in every scene to make Aladdin a prince while entertaining us with laughter at the same time. The best things about the film are its leads, Mena Massoud as Aladdin who looks exactly as if He was pulled out of the animated world and transformed to live action. Than best of all New british actress Naomi Scott who not only plays a sexy but also confident jasmine. When Massoud & Scott are on the screen together they bring good chemistry, they play off like a pair of young teens who desire eachother and want what they each cant have, here its fun because its scaled on a more mature level. What boy wouldn't want to marry a rich & beautiful princess and what girl wouldnt want to chase after a boy who isnt “like the rest”. The saving grace of this film is that the intimacy that lacked in the original is quite present here when these 2 are on screen almost the whole time. The large gray area in the movie is Marwan Kenzari, who’s portrayal of Jafar is rather on the odd side. His voice, masculinity & cleverness is lacking from the original jafar character, you would think the tricks up his sleeve would carry over and really compell in this what should have been epic remake, but unfortunately not. The Sultan is also not charming as he was plump, he's now depressing and boring. There are 2 scenes where Genie tries to encourage the “Prince Ali” Aladdin to be himself in the presence of jasmine and the dialogue is rather embarrassing & uncomfortable to watch, as for jasmines friend the genie also wants to confess his feelings to, its also awkward, NEXT. The singing reprisals of “a whole new world” and “ one jump” are spot on, but theres a new song called speechless performed by naomi scott who does very well but...in the middle of a climatic ending? Really? Terrible timing if you ask me. The action sequences such as aladdin escaping the cave & jafar taking the lamp are briefed and not emphasized so it doesn't feel as fun as the original, plenty of opportunity for special effects to splash all over the screen but didn’t. Perhaps Kenzari would have made a better cobra than a jafar, too bad he forgot to transform into one, but rather transform his parrot iago into a giant bird instead. The Parrot barely talks in this one, i think gilbert gottfried could have came back and made this new iago come to life like he hilariously did before. When all is said and done, the visuals are certainly dazzling and Will Smith did as much as he could with the little that he was given to work with to portray the new genie, Naomi Scott has some future ahead and im looking forward, the movie may appeal to kids since they wont care about the flaws as much as me, but too bad im not a kid no more.

    I’m not a fan of Disney live action remakes. I tried to like it, but I couldn’t. The Fresh Prince of Bel Air Genie did not work. Watching the broadway version of the animated classic would have been better. Jafar was not as sarcastic and crafty as the animated film and I just could not believe his character. The original also made sense to arrest Aladdin to get the lamp. In this version Jafar takes his time, which makes him a stupid villain that is not as greedy as he says he is (after all if you’re greedy wouldn’t you be more urgent?) I was bored after the One Jump Ahead scene. A Whole New World scene was bland and Jasmine was too feminist and power hungry for me. In the original, she was fighting against tradition and wanted to be more unique and that was more interesting, and in my opinion, more females can relate to those feelings.
  • I bought it and now it disappeared from my library

    Excellent movie, but I can’t recommend a purchase. I bought this on iTunes when it originally came out and sometime in the last few months it disappeared from my iTunes library. I understand that license rights may change, yet this movie is still available. Where is my access??
