    (Argento Cut)

    When I look back at all the zombie films and zombie series I've seen so far, they all have one thing in common, regardless of their other qualities and content: I rarely found the gore effects disturbing or frightening.

    Princess Jasmine and the Genie are by far the best about this colorful reinterpretation, which is story-wise and in some scenes also staged very much like the cartoon from 1992, but above all in the characterization of the well-known characters it offers interesting and sometimes really misguided paths.
