While Will Smith’s genie is slightly too derivitive of Robin Williams’ own performance, there was never a time that I felt like he wasn’t giving 100% in his performance. This was the first time I remember hearing him sing in a film, and this was the first time we’ve heard anything new musically from him in a long while, I’m pretty sure the end credits song is a new one, ala Men In Black. I wasn’t expecting anything directed by Guy Ritchie to be this good and kid friendly, happy to have my mind blown on that regard. Naomi Scott as Jasmin was absolutely amazing, though the new songs she had for the movie stuck out like a sour grape in a bundle of great grapes, both of them were downtrodden depressing affairs, where as all the other tracks in the movie are excited uplifting affairs.
If you get to watch this in 4k/hdr, I suggest it. The colors are insanely vivid!
