Review : Disney's Aladdin (1992)
Aladdin - The story of a local street rat who vies for the love of a beautiful princess, he uses a genie's magical powers to disguise himself off as a prince in order to marry her.
I think that the viewers who have seen the film or have yet to see the film, will be able to identify that the bad guy, Jafar, can come across as being quite a scary character, in terms of his determination and sorcery and mind control techniques, especially over the sultan are quite creepy. So moving on to the main character, the title character which is Aladdin. Aladdin is a street rat who without any doubt, seeks adventure which provides excitement for the audience, and throughout the course of the film we see our noble hero, being chased by henchmen with giant swords and some mythological monsters. And of core you have the Genie, (Voiced by Robin Williams) who provides plenty of comic relief to the more dangerous moments. The film also has a bit of sex appeal to it, with revealing outfits worn by Princess Jasmine and some rather curvy dancing ladies in the background. All of these and more just goes to show that Aladdin is a verity of good and bad things that one can expect of a typical 90's Disney film. I have always found this one to be very interesting, based on the ground levels of it being unlike any other Disney film of it's time.
