Robin Williams set the bar too high for Will Smith to reach. !!

Will Smith carries the cast in this movie. He did a really great job as Genie. Jafar and Jasmines performance was meh... I’d say it’s a decent movie, but it did deviate from the original.

It was good, something different. I still think Will Smith could’ve done much more with the genie.

Aladdin (2019) is a whole new musical, magical and entertaining journey with some amazing dance numbers and a joyful performance of Genie, despite a bad performance of Jafar. This may not be one of Disney’s best but it sure is a fun time for both adults and kids!

If Robin Williams was still with us, he would be proud of Will Smith for really honouring the role of Genii. Amazingly marvellous!

YES, Willl Smith CAN SING! So please don't criticize him for trying singing the songs in the same keys and notes, the way Robbin Williams sang it in the cartoon version. Vibrant colours, great choreography and music.

I love the original but this one brought some new stuff that added to the overall picture. I love that Will Smith put his own spin on the Genie roll but still kept pretty true to the original. I will see it again!

It was pretty good. It didn’t try my patience like Beauty and the Beast did. And certainly wasn’t as good as the original. But I had fun watching it. The cast was really good. Will Smith was his usual charming self. I recommend it as a matinee.

Very good! Will Smith put his own stamp on the genie with somexwonderful nods to Robin Williams. However, Jafar was a miss for me. Not that he is a bad actor but just miscast in this role. I go the parrot was more evil and he was CGI.

I was so surprised at how well they made this film. Will Smith gave his own twist to the genie, Jafar isn't a creepy pedo going after Jasmine, he's a much more believable character. Jasmine is more than a pretty face in the film. They did a great job

Weird glitches in the movie where frame rates seemed off. At first thought it was the theatre issue but I’ve seen similar comments from others. Will smith did a great job as the genie which I was nervous of, after all your building off a character of the incredible robin williams

One of the best movies of all time! Mena and Naomi did a perfect job bringing these characters to life. So glad that the children today get to grow up with such a strong Jasmine. Do yourself a treat and check out this film. 🧞‍♂️🧞‍♂️🐵

I personally wouldn’t watch it again. I had my reservations about Genie and I must say he was the best part of the whole movie. I’d say it was just “okay”

Ritchie’s film still feels shackled by its dutiful allegiance to the source material. But when it gets to be its own thing, it’s a spirited romp that — setting aside the uncanny, off-putting look of Smith’s Genie — has no shortage of charms.

Despite Aladdin’s occasionally arresting moments, this remake’s most potent element is its intentional air of déjà vu.

The combination of diverse casting and female empowerment themes results in a perfectly politically correct Aladdin for these times. The only thing that seems to have been left out is the magic, which is a bit of a problem considering that one of the main characters is a genie.
