      I thought Jafars first henchmen might've been Abis Mal.

    2. Greg technic

      Will Smith made the movie you ask me ..this is for the newer generation .. let appreciate the entertainment of the movie

    3. Barbara

      Another thing was Jasmine in the animation I felt was much more clever, like the pole vault from one building to the next was her idea and they took that out!!! If these films nowadays go for strong women, why take that away from her?

    4. Barbara

      Yea I just watched this movie and didn't really like it. There was no emotional impact. There were certain scenes in the animation film, like when Jasmines hand almost got chopped off, that were so intense. But in this movie it was so quick that you couldn't really absorb it. I didn't like what they did with Abu or Iago ( which was nothing) and Jafar just didn't have the same presense. I did like the Genie but thought Will Smith's singing was very weak.

      I love that this was rated to be a good time if you're drunk when I wound up turning this movie into a drinking game in order to watch it.

    6. Joel Matthew

      One of the worst movies I have ever seen. Drink a lot and smoke a few blunts, it won't make the movie better but you may pass out and miss most of the awfulness.

    7. Lumpy Stilskin

      Yeah i really liked this movie

    8. Javier Carrillo

      This movie sucked compared to the animation. I didn’t really like the ending! I agree with everything you said!!

    9. Yusef Taufiq

      I agree 💯 it was enjoyable but overall fell flat for me

    10. Taylor Fox

      I agree 100% critique on point. I had high hopes and wanted to attach to this movie because I’m a Disney princess myself but I have to succumb to that this was just a very sub par execution.

    11. Royhazel Edmonds

      Had some funny moments but it was really rushed. Some of the dialogue didn’t exactly land especially the hand maid’s, she was kind of weird with the genie lol

    12. Keshav Batra

      I actually loved this movie

    13. Aaron Johnson

      this film is generally good, i liked the trailer, and it indeed may be a good companion to the animated version jafar is the only thing in the film at least for me that i was kinda iffy about, he kinda seemed a little less menacing than his animated equivelant, and More like a jerk uncle mena massoud and naomi scott seem to have terrific chemistry, in the same manner how linda larkin and scott weigner did in the animated version so i would say it is Purchase worthy with the animated version, but i do agree with your opinion that this film would be fun if you do or Don't have to be drunk

    14. Zubair Baraskar

      Cave of wonder face LMFAO

    15. Alexandru

      whaT? he didn't mention the fact that they changed Jasmine story and personality into a feminist. lol

    16. Mueseek

      I agree it felt rushed. Will Smith made the movie for me. The actor who plays Aladdin was cringy throughout in my opinion and his acting was questionable. How did Jasmine, being a strong intelligent woman who strives to be Sultan, not know that you need to pay with money in the beginning? She must surely know how society works and the consequences of stealing. The chemistry between Aladdin and Jasmine felt off. In my opinion the animated movie is better in almost every way.

    17. Dylan’s Plush Show

      I hated this movie, it sucked, one the worst movies I’ve ever seen

    18. marcpatrol

      You have to give us a review NOT a comparison

    19. Jacob Santeria

      Thank you. I will not watch this film now. Disney is running out of ideas! 😂

    20. Daniel Arcilla

      I really don't understand why they did not cast Snoop Dog as Jafar

    21. Artur V

      I think this movie was great. This guy is looking for something bad to say Just because of the stupid critics

    22. Ukko Clap

      I’m honestly disappointed in the Aladdin actor i just think he was not the right actor to play alladin. Couldn’t really feel him bringing the character forward. Will smith did a good job on genie though. I still enjoyed the movie and the songs.

    23. Markallen Garcia

      I highly disliked this remake. The change of Jasmine's character to a glory-seeking diva negatively affected the whole movie. For example, the fact that Jasmine is already mingling on the streets and engaged in foreign politics from the start totally contradicts the iconic "A Whole New World" carpet ride scene and strips it of any soul and purpose. Aladdin had no real convincing reason to like her. The scene becomes just a cute little interlude of deception on Aladdin's part, whereas the original point was to show that Aladdin is a bold adventurer with a good heart whether he's a prince or a lowly street guy.

    24. Alan Hanna

      I will never watched the remake

    25. Alan Hanna

      crap movie

    26. Farid Pahlevan

      i don't think if you got this!you just spoil the movie! and the fact that everyone loved the movie but it was a mixed bag for you is embarrassing 😂

    27. Disney65Fan

      Love this film

    28. IC

      Disney are like Nintendo , recycling their original classics in shoddy updates that suck ass.

    29. Astromooncake dorito8513

      I liked Aladdin 2019 and will smith was good as the genie 🧞‍♂️🧞‍♀️ but 1992 was a little better 👌

    30. Banana Child

      *Pros:* 1. The visuals are very beautiful to look at. *Cons:* 1. The musical sequence felt dull and slow (Though I will commend the faithfulness of Mena Massoud's and Naomi Scott's singing voice to the original 1997 Aladdin, especially Massoud's) 2. Jaafar looks like a total wimp when compared to the (obviously) evil, menacing and charismatic cartoon Jaafar. 3. A lot of character building scenes from the original were trimmed in the remake and was replaced with a bunch of unnecessary newly written scenes which added an extra (stretched) 30-minutes of boring filler to the movie.

    31. Hari S

      They tried to develop Jasmine to a bit deeper but don't give a shit about Aladdin's character. He's less developed in the live-action than the animation. Should've given him a backstory or dug into his past more. Also, Jaraffar is just garbage casting.

    32. Akshay Jumani

      Just watched it yesterday, I did enjoy the added gravitas they have to Jasmine. Instead of being a princess looking for a prince she's actually someone with motivations to lead her people. Will Smith's Genie is fun in some scenes, his romantic comedy and reaction scenes were good. I also liked the new Dalia character. What I didn't like was the poor rendition of Jafar (didn't feel like a threat), lack of certain elements from the original (Genie's transformations and reactions, as pointed out, the cave, a well rounded Iago, the hourglass). It would have been better if they went for a darker colour tone as well, to match that mysterious Arabian vibe of the original. This one had the colours of a Disney channel tv show.

    33. Syed Shah Nawaz Ali

      At least critics and fans online have forced the movie makers to not white wash all of characters. They did do everything possible to hide religion. When its clear that Arabian Nights is from Muslim Iraq times. Probably no one knows this but FYI Jaffar marriage was shown as Christian marriage In Islamic marriage the lady is asked first for her consent and she signs the marriage contract. But here it was shown wrong when Jaffar was asked first. But rest is all fine at least the animated song blunder did not happen. LOL So no complains. I enjoyed it can't believe it.

    34. StruckdownButNotdestroyed 1980

      Not me. watching this Aladdin felt like eating a rubber chicken.

    35. Sarah

      Will Smith was great but his singing not so much 🙃

    36. WL Chek

      I only know Jasmine sings like Queen Elsa, and Jafar's pet is like Soundwave's Laserbeak.

    37. Oto Tanase

      I like it it was good fun... still enjoyed tho the animation

    38. fida80

      It's just ok movie , I am glad I didn't watched in cinema

    39. Darren McDaid

      I for one thought this was a great. Compared to Lion King disaster.

    40. Zara khan

      I just checked a stupid 2014 movie Neighbours that gave me headache , had 72% score on rotten tomatoes but Aladdin 2019 had 57%

    41. Zara khan

      This movie was so much better than the critics made it look... I didn't go to cenima to watch it when it was released , but few days ago my cousins really insisted and I watched it... I was surprised how enjoyable was it , it wasn't perfect at all , but I had good time with it.. it didn't deserve the hate it got. Rare occasion where I respectfully disagree from jeremy here

    42. nerd marvel


    43. R

      Awful movie man, really bad. I was willing to give it a chance, even tried to like Smith... But with no success, it's just too bad and with no "soul" whatsoever. A product, nothing more, and a very cheap looking product.

    44. The Realization Lord

      This is so annoying you could've put a spoiler warning

    45. Shibbir Choudhury

      Superb movie

    46. Derrick Cox

      Man for some reason it hit me.... think it was because of Robin Williams..... Just the memory of him made me misty eyed on every scene that reminded me of him and how he ended so badly. But oh how it could have been so much worse... Star Wars sequels... Never watched a movie that made me so sad and so happy at the same time but for different reasons. RIP Robin Williams

    47. Dario Monaco

      Trash movie.

    48. Cameron Jones

      Compared to lion king, Aladdin is so much better!

    49. art vandelay

      1:33 😂


      Iago here is basically Season 8 jon snow. Iago: Yes muh Master. Jon: Muh queen Jafar was the worst in the movie. Will smith was the best. Noone could replace RW as Geenie. But WS did a pretty good job nonetheless . i was only entertained when he was on screen. and when Jafar was on screen my eyes rolled up with cringe. is this guy having a conversation or having monologue ?

    51. Roffa 5311

      And what about don’t touch anything yet you see Abu jumping on a golden plate with money on it yet nothing happened

    52. GHOSTY !!!!?

      This was probably the best Disney re make

    53. Mayank Singh

      I didn't like the movie ...Aladdin's costume sucked big time theres a hoodie in his jacket come on....sultan was not funny nd he was normal?....jafar was young but its ok i guess i wouldve gone with sir ben Kingsley or maybe william dafoe...iago had no character ...🤔🤔...the iconic castle was changed .....agrabah was on a coast ?? ...what???...wouldnt have mind it tht much if the castle was right

    54. Akzork

      I dont get the ending of the movie. Spoilers. The genie is not genie anymore? no sequel?

    55. jenelle chetty

      i watched it and tawt it wasn't as good as the original but still good over all

    56. Raushaun virgil

      Dude really hating just shut up😂

    57. Dean

      They turned a fantasy cartoon into a movie with humans who are extremely limited in comparison. I was always waiting for it to be Aladdin and it turned into something that was not recognized.

    58. Mr. Wavy McGrady

      Didnt care for the new song they added, I mean Hollywood always finds a way to pull something political into it

    59. حارث يزن Hareth

      Its good but not as the original

    60. Freddy Krueger

      This movie sucked i got 56 minutes in omg i feel bad for will smiths career

      1. Luis Perez

        He got Genesis Man (or whatever it's called) coming out and looks pretty good. He'll be ok I think lol

    61. entry

      why aladdin is like 25 yrs old ? not teenager

    62. MamaMoo are the best Kpop group of all time bitches

      Honestly Will Smith made this movie. Jafar was horrible tho

    63. Nightmare

      The movie is trash

    64. Voices In head

      They really don’t know the difference between Indian and Arabic culture....

    65. Greg Wilson

      Characters pale to the originals but they hit their stride in the middle Story sucked compared to the original Magic sucked compared to the original Pacing sucked compared to the original Animation sucked compared to the original Set design sucked compared to the original Music sucked in the beginning it all felt rushed and depending on how you feel about speechless being in the movie friend like me might be the only great song. AND IT GOT RID OF THE PRISON SONG! hate they left that part out lol Will smith was cool when he was himself Aladdin was almost there but he didnt have enough swag Jasmine was the standout but they used her to push the sjw narrative "hot jafar" was ayte but why didnt they cast creepy? Abu and Rajah were cool Parrot sucked ass Sultan sucked ass Carpet was cool when getting the lamp but then was noticeably bland This movie is kinda enjoyable if all you care about is the actors so i say like 4/10

    66. MERICA #1

      Fuck alladin I hate that it ruined Godzilla’s box office fuck you disney

    67. Ajax

      Aladdin 3 is amazing

    68. Juan Arocha

      I will admit Jafar unleashing his power and l screaming to get the lamp, I liked that

    69. Justin Awesome

      I liked it but the original is so much better.

    70. lostsoldier212

      The old tv Aladdin was better. Keegan-Michael Key would have been a better choice than Will Smith (who I actually do like) Jasmine and Jaffar were also miscast...dump Iago too. And Abu looked off about as much as Genie...but hey, they did a good job on Carpet I guess. Jokes aside, I liked Aladdin and the Sultan and the Maid, they were cast well. Lastly, why did they include Jasmine's songs? They didn't fit well.
