Product Description

Nintendo video game perennials Mario and Luigi come to life as plumbers who are thrust into a parallel dimension peopled by the descendents of dinosaurs. It seems that the meteor that hit the earth 65 million years ago (in Brooklyn, no less) didn't kill the dinosaurs, but hurled them into a world in which they have developed into a species of intelligent humanoids. And it is up to the Mario brothers to save Princess Daisy, and life as we know it, from the megalomaniacal Koopa, who wants to merge the two dimensions and rule the world that will result.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's A Coin-Op Hit! 12 Feb 2007
By Mr. C. Gelderd VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Yes it's fluff and pure escapism, and loosley based on the Super Mario computer games, but it's a fun film!

Children will enjoy it for the adventure and out of this world effects and stunts, while adults will enjoy a laugh with the tongue in cheek plot and performances from Bob, John and Dennis.

A great film and one that has been overlooked for a DVD release until now!

Enjoy it, and leave your brain on hold for 90mins of Super Mario Bros FUN!

Format:DVD
Super Mario Bros the Movie manages several well-known things - firstly it's the first ever mainstream Video Game Movie adaption, and secondly star Bob Hoskins has stated it as the worst film he's ever made.

So how can I review this film so highly, despite the main star's objections to the quality of it?
The truth of the matter is that this film isn't actually as terrible as the hype states it is. Being the first Hollywood adaption of a video game series, and being extremely different from it's source material, there wasn't really anything to compare it to. If you were hoping for a genuine conversion of the game's storyline into a movie, then you are going to be highly disappointed - but then you've made a rather rash assumption that the basic story of the game series would work as a film to begin with. Movies need to be like epic events, a major moment of the character's lives catalogued within an hour and a half (minimum). The game's theme of 'Bowser has the Princess, run into castle and have toad say "Your Princess is in another castle" 7 or 8 times before the end' doesn't make for a good film.

Excuses aside, the film does succeed in the way it intends to. It is extremely fun. Unlike other films with it's reputation, the Super Mario Bros Movie is genuinely enjoyable and even more so thanks to the few downfalls in it's script. Bob Hoskins cracks me up as Mario "Get Your Belt on Kid! We're goin' in!", and Dennis Hopper is clearly the inspiration for Doctor Evil from Austin Powers "See you later, Alligator". The movie manages to do something few films manage - it improves with age. I'm not going to state that it's as superb as Blade Runner (As stated on the box), because they're from two very different worlds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than you remember 16 Jun 2009
By Rambleast Reviews TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Oscar nominee Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo are an often overlooked double act that made this film an absolute joy. Hoskins displays a untapped (no, I haven't seen Who Framed Roger Rabbit?) comic brilliance, displayed in facial expression, body language and line delivery, while Johnny Leg runs around after the girl quipping as a young New Yorker should.

The Goombas look awesome. Shoddy animatronics are always good for a laugh.

I've subtracted two stars for Oscar nominee Dennis Hopper's dreadful King Koopa performance (worst dialogue ever) and the fact that Bob-omb is pronounced with a stutter, like b..b..bomb, when it SHOULD be pronounced like two words, for the awkward effect. Shame.

Definitely fun, suitably odd and quirky and thoroughly enjoyable! A bit too pricey for my liking though, however I've got it now and I'll enjoy it over and over again! My 12 year old daughter has threatened to pinch it from me because she loves it too! lol

3.0 out of 5 stars The 90s 8 Oct 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What happens when you take a brightly-coloured series of iconic video games and build a narrative around them for a film? Probably involve two heroic brothers (who happen to be Italian plumbers) going on a quest to rescue a princess from an evil dragon, right? Well... sorta, that's what Super Mario Bros does. Except it was made in the 90s, so instead...

Look, you remember the 90s. Everything went dark. Edgy. Postmodern. Nihilistic. The grunge generation and the post-capitalist fallout meant we all woke up and realised that actually, the world was a pretty messed up place once the hazy 80s filter was removed. It also meant that movies and popular culture in general took a strange sideways step - Frank Miller and Alan Moore became the brand guidelines for new projects, and Mario Bros very much falls under that umbrella of influence.

That's not to say it's bad - it's certainly weird enough to justify a watch, but this is a movie where things are just the wrong kind of dark and twisted throughout rather than a Nintendo-friendly kids flick. It's a brave choice, one that doesn't always work but is worth watching just to appreciate how strange it actually is.
