'Aladin' is an interesting attempt and a faithful live action that turns lame after the first few minutes itself, only that we realize this in the slow-paced climax. It doesn't have the fizz and action which animated the old animated film of the nineties. Moreover, it gave me Will Smith as the most memorable supporting character in a live action, as well as a charming Naomi Scott as Jasmine, who, since the time the original came, is my favourite Disney Princess. So its a two and a half stars for 'Aladdin Live Action'. Only half-recommended.
