Highly Suspect Reviews: Aladdin

Aladdin Movie Review


This whole ‘Disney-making-live-action-remakes-of-their-beloved-cartoons’ thing ain’t gonna stop anytime soon and here we have the latest, and potentially the most dangerous of them all, Aladdin. Yes, despite people screaming at them about it the whole way (probably assuming they were making bad decisions rather than having any actual evidence of them) Disney seems to have stuck largely to the appropriate casting and even gave Jasmine a new song and significantly more agency. Yes, yes, you say, but is it actually good? How horrible is Will Smith as the Genie? Other than shaky CG genie face, not horrible at all. You need to listen to Chris, Ben, and Alan on this Aladdin movie review express their surprise at all the things they actually really enjoyed here including Will Smith (but decidedly not everything).


Directed by: Guy Ritchie

Starring: Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, Will Smith, Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban, Billy Magnussen Numan Acar
