I actually liked this a lot more than I expected. Will Smith makes a very entertaining Genie and, yes, it may not match up to Robin William's animated counterpart, but he makes the role his own while still maintaining the soul of the original. Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott make a fine pair as Aladdin and Jasmine while Marwan Kenzari plays a slick Jafar. The film is colorful and has beautiful effects, the songs pop and Guy Ritchie does well with family-friendly action. While it's always hard to compete with the animated original, this remake manages to hold its own.

Will Smith helps out a little, but this weakly acted and flavorless remake recreates almost none of the magic of the original.
