    I’ve only heard average to amazing things about this. It’s kind of made me want to go see it now

    Everyone I know who’s seen it has enjoyed it much more than they expected, so go watch it!

    I went to see this yesterday. I was expecting Guy Ritchie to basically destroy my entire childhood. Honestly it was fine. Aladdin is cute as hell though.

    Couple of my Disney friends have seen it, and so far their feedback is to not watch it.

    1. Apparently Jasmine is basic as hell, and is not able to deliver on the 'essence' of Jasmine at all.
    2. No chemistry exists been Aladdin and the Genie (just two acts thrown together who obviously know nothing of each other or spent any time with each other prior to the movie)
    3. Overall feel of the movie doesn't capture the original (Like Beauty and Beast did).

    But I guess this is Disney, and I'm sure it'll make 'money' for them.

    I wasn't a Disney kid really, but Aladdin was my favourite when I was growing up, and Dumbo, too. I thought they did a pretty decent job with the elephant... keen to see how they do with this.

    The great thing about Cineworld memberships is that you can see as many films as many times as you like for £20 a month. And I feel like that's exactly what I'll be reminding myself when I leave the theatre having seen Aladdin.

    Its shame that such director as Guy Ritchie creator one of the best gangster movies and good Sherlock and King Arthur adaptations is wasting time on something like this :( I cant wait for The Gentlemen!

    Saw it yesterday and I quite liked it. Don't understand the most common points of criticism, because I found none of them to be true.

    I want to watch this but I can't watch anything with Will Smith in it.
    ? Girls' Generation ?
    ? HyoYeon ? Britney Spears ?

    Girls' Generation is the best-selling girl group of all time.

    I enjoyed it! I loved the new dance sequence!

    The new lyrics in "One Jump Ahead" was unexpected, the same way when they did for "Beauty and the Beast".

    "Speechless" was incredible, I think it's the frontrunner for Best Original Song. I love that Guy Ritchie wasn't too in your face with the feminism issue here, especially since this is a very sensitive subject in Arabian culture.

    Will did an incredible job, I kinda wished he had bigger singing vocals.

    I'm not a fan of Will Smith at all either, but he's really good in this.
    I'd say you should watch it.

    Aladdin was my favorite Disney film growing up and I was dreading seeing this after the first trailers and reviews.
    However, they really did it justice with this live action version. I absolutely loved it! Oh and how gorgeous is Naomi Scott?

    The only thing I hated was the Jafar casting. It was just such a total mismatch for me.
    And that horrible voice the actor put on. It was so bad.

    I like it but I feel it's mostly for the nostagic factor. The only person who could sing is Naomi. I bought "Speechless" on iTunes.

    I cannot at the people criticizing it for "misrepresenting" the Arabic world by looking at how the palace supposedly looks like the Taj Mahal (it doesn't). The biggest "misrepresentation" would be Jasmine ends up becoming sultan.

    Eating my words. I finally got around to seeing this yesterday and I really enjoyed it. Will Smith - on point!! Mena Masoud I thought was great and Naomi Scott, too. I'd heard negative things about direction but overall, it gets it right more than it misses. The only element that didn't gel for me was Jafar. I've seen the actor in other things and he is a solid performer but here.... I dunno. I feel like they couldn't quite agree on what the interpretation was supposed to be.

    Still, it's stylish and solid.

    I preferred it to Toy Story 4 and Lion King.

    Same!!

    I’m happy this film has legs at the box office.
    It’s still doing really well in various countries.
