ALADDIN

DRUM - - Chill Out -

FAN­TASY AD­VEN­TURE. 130 MIN. 2019. 7-9PG V. A live-ac­tion re­make of one of Dis­ney’s best-loved hits. A poor or­phan finds a genie (WILL SMITH) who grants him three wishes, but the sul­tan’s evil ad­viser wants the genie’s power for him­self . . .

Some of the mu­si­cal num­bers lack oomph and Will’s singing isn’t strong enough to carry the iconic Ara­bian Nights, but over­all this is an en­joy­able, en­ter­tain­ing romp. – BIANCA LAMBRECHTS
