Intense but funny and cool

(Written by 8yo boy) - I didn't like this movie at first but then the second time I watched it I started to enjoy it. I have now seen it three times and I want to watch it a fourth. I was intense in most scenes, but cool too. So I think 7 and 8-year-olds will like it.

Absolute Musical Perfection

Rating 10/10 Aladdin truly is magical. Aladdin has a long and illustrious legacy. As usual, the plot of beggar Aladdin and Princess Jasmine fighting for their love is incredible. This movie was great !! It has comedy,action,romance,adventure and everything else including in all genres of all movie. The acting from everyone was great. Good acting performance by Will Smith a.k.a Genie, Mena Massoud a.k.a Aladdin & Naomi Scott a.k.a Jasmine. For all of you, go see it you wont regret it !! Absolute musical perfection.
