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.

NOTE: This review was originally posted on the Super Mario Bros. Movie Archive website (http://www.smbmovie.com). I'm reposting it here for anyone checking out the Blu-Ray on Amazon!

--Video Quality--

Some of the other reviews I've read online focus quite a bit on what the reviewer thinks about Super Mario Bros. as a film, without really touching on the technical aspects of the Blu-Ray. This review isn't going to have any of that. I'll go deep into all the technical aspects of the release and all of the special features.

So, how does the video quality match up against previous releases? The difference is quite a dramatic one. This website has a long track record of bashing the original 2003 Disney DVD release because of its strange non-anamorphic, full frame widescreen presentation. Second Sight did a new anamorphic transfer for this Blu-Ray release, and it looks fantastic. The film looks vivid and sharp. The added detail of the high-resolution transfer finally allows us to see details and easter eggs that we've never seen before. I don't think I'll be the last person freeze-framing through this thing--literally each scene has something new to discover. Check out the SMB Archive's DVD to Blu-Ray comparison video for a closer look: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLa3G2bULwo

Print damage artifacts (abundant in the DVD) are a lot less common. Black levels seem deep and pure, which is a huge help since many scenes in the film take place on the neon-centric Dinohattan streets or in the dark corridors of Koopa's Tower. Upon closer comparison to the original DVD, it also looks like the Blu-Ray offers a marked difference in the color grading. Many scenes on the original DVD had some over-saturated pinks and blues that seemed to be overlaid on the scenes.

Finally, my favorite movie of all time, from my Childhood - Super Mario Bros - is AT LONG LAST going to come out on DVD and Blu Ray!!!!!
Fans like us have waited a ridiculously long time for the film to be released officially. Thanks to their support this has happened. Now the film not only has an official release date but is also remastered in 5.1 Surround - and the Blu Ray looks amazing!
Special features also contain a brand new hour long documentary with loads of awesome stuff, like new interviews with John Leguizamo [Luigi] and Archive interview footage of Bob Hoskins [Mario]
i'm so happy with this release i'm going to give it five stars anyway even though it's not out yet! That's how good it is.
If this is one of your childhood dreams come true as well I really suggest you go and order this ! We all did it!

I watched ‘Super Mario Bros’ in the cinema back in 1993. I enjoyed it. Today, I still watch it from time to time on DVD and I still enjoy it. I guess I’m one of those select few who just didn’t get the hate this film got.

Maybe it was because, although I played a lot of video games during the eighties and nineties, I was rubbish at ALL Super Mario Bros games (and my cousin was annoyingly fantastic at them). So, perhaps I was unaware of all the hype and expectations this ‘game to film’ adaptation had attached to it.

It’s a family adventure film. Basically, there’s an alternate dimension where dinosaurs evolved into humans instead of the monkeys who did over here. There, the evil dictator ‘Koopa’ wants to merge the two worlds and basically rule them both. Luckily, plucky New York plumbers Mario and his bother Luigi travel there to stop him. So, expect car chases, futuristic worlds and a few lasers and funky bazooka-like guns thrown into the mix.

Yes, it’s hardly a classic. Everything it spoon-fed to us on a plate. You won’t need to exercise much brainpower to really understand what’s happening here. Every scene tells us something we need to know and everyone speaks as if they’re explaining the entire theory of the universe at all times.

I thought it was good – just a light-hearted family, sci-fi adventure romp. But then I’m in the minority. If you’ve never seen it then you should be aware that 99% of people HATED it. It’s largely one of the biggest cinematic flops ever. I guess it’s because Super Mario Bros had such a large following that everyone of its fans had their own idea about what they wanted to see from the live-action film and they didn’t get anything near. The computer Mario world is cute and colourful.
