FULL REVIEW: CONTAINS SPOILERS
Aladdin is a fun, live-action version of a beloved animated classic. While the atmosphere isn’t as magical as expected with some questionable musical numbers, direction and casting choices, the charismatic performances of the ensemble, comedy and all ages themes bring enough of that Disney tone to help this story soar.
★★★★★★★½☆☆ 7.5/10 – Consider
