Aladdin | Ratings & Reviews

"Guy Ritchie’s Aladdin reveals its limitations from the very start with opening song Arabian Nights proving Will Smith isn’t a singer. Sure, he can hold a note, a compliment you’d give a pal during Cosplay Night at a karaoke bar. But for a blockbuster musical, Smith severely lacks range and projection. I don’t want to be too hard on him here because, in every other area, he truly justifies his casting as Genie."


"Will Smith is at his best when he makes the role his own, but he never quite captures the magic that made us fall in love with Genie the first time around."

Time OutTime Out

"The movie itself, while not entirely terrible - a lot of craft has been purchased, and even a little art - is pointless in a particularly aggressive way."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"A throwback to the 1950s and the heyday of the MGM musical, when various countries and cultures were packaged into vibrant confections of song, dance, exotic sets and costumes... Ritchie has come up with something that fits right in."

Sydney Morning HeraldSydney Morning Herald

"In the end, with its dazzling song-and-dance numbers, scheming villains and caste-busting tale of boy-meets-girl, this feels less like Arabian Nights and more like Disney's first Bollywood blockbuster."


"Colourful, lively and diverting, with some highly emotive songs, but never escapes the shadow of its inspiration."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"The upgrades here are primarily cosmetic, which is no reason to discount their pleasures."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"The combination of diverse casting and female empowerment themes results in a perfectly politically correct Aladdin for these times."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Your wish for a respectful and enjoyable new Aladdin has been granted."

Herald SunHerald Sun

"Where there should be wonder, there is CGI. And where there should be a fun and exciting comedic presence with the Genie, we get Will Smith doing his best Kazaam impression."
