A kindhearted street urchin named Aladdin embarks on a magical adventure after finding a lamp that releases a wisecracking genie while a power-hungry Grand Vizier vies for the same lamp that has the power to make their deepest wishes come true.
The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.
Excellent and certainly provocative... If nothing else, the film is a real conversation starter.
The tone of this movie is interesting -- the stakes are both dramatic and high, but it's balanced with a lot of fun, tongue and cheek dialogue.
The movie really just wants to entertain people.
