I was completely shocked as how much i enjoyed this film. Sure it has it’s flaws, such as the miscasting of jafar, but my god did Will Smith absolutely steal the show. I was utterly bored for the first 40 minutes, the film had no heart nor did it have the charm of the original. And suddenly Will Smith appears and the whole film changes from an uninspired and dull remake of an adored animated movie to a witty, fun ride throughout.
A Beautifully shot movie with an amazing atmosphere and a moving performance by ben foster, the father-daughter relationship felt so pure and realistic making it such a poignant look of how a father copes with his mental illness and the tolerance of the daughter.
The main focus of the story is the daughter constantly trying to be with her father no matter what, because she understands him like no other person so she will push boundaries and go as far…
