Aladdin ★★★

Overall, this movie is ok, there is nothing that i thoroughly dislike but at the end if i really want to watch Aladdin i would watch the 1992 version, that is the truly superior one.

Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott are actually really good as Aladdin and Jasmine, and the more focus in Jasmine as a character is probably the strongest point in this movie. Will Smith as the genie is actually fine, he do a really decent job, he had big shoes to fill, with the legendary Robin Williams performance, and he made the best he can to make the character his own. I was not the biggest fan of Jafar in this adaptation, in the original he was really intimidating and scary something that that the one of this movie really fail to convey.

Overall my principal problem with the movie is lack of originality, there is nothing significant that distinguish this to the original one. At as i said in the introduction, i don't have any reason to come back to this movie when the 1992 version exist.
