Great fun movie!,
This review is from: Super Mario Bros. (DVD)As someone who viewed this movie as a kid (in theaters and on VHS) and as a fan of the video game series, I think this is a great and fun movie.
The cast is cool and funny. The visual effects and set design are impressive for the time this movie was made. And the action and humour is very enjoyable.
Many people have said this movie is horrible. I can somewhat agree that this movie is anything but perfect however I am able to understand what the filmakers were trying to accomplish with this film. After all this was the first time a movie was made based on a videogame. Also the game itself didn't have too much of a thick story so the filmakers did the best they could with what Mario material was made available at the time.
All in all I watch this movie every now and then for nostalgia and for a good time (especially the former). And I highly recomend this to anyone curious about it!
