I love anything with Will Smith in it. He is by far one of my favorite actors of all time but Aladdin I'm not sure about. Whether it's just because I'm hung up on it being such a drastic change from Robin Williams, live action vs cartoon, or actually Will's acting in not sure.
Aside from that the movie is actually very good even with some key things being changed. Songs were edited to modernize them, and new songs added to give Jasmine (the main female character) a stronger role than in the original, and how Aladdin fools the genie (which I think wasn't a great change).
All in all I would suggest watching it, possibly in theaters if you're looking to go. I wouldn't suggest going out of your way to see it there but if it works out I wouldn't scoff at it either.
Enjoy the movie if you get a chance and let us know what you think below!
