The Super Mario Bros. Movie is a fun ride through the iconic world of Mario. The screenplay is admittedly very bare bones, and the characters lack depth, but the film still manages to capture the essence of the beloved video game franchise. The writers do not attempt to do anything beyond create a narrative that intentionally puts our characters in worlds and areas that are instantly recognizable to the audience. This makes the film feel like a Mario game come to life so that audiences can say “that is like Mario Kart or Super Smash Bros.” The movie pacing flies at a breakneck speed, and I felt that this movie could have benefited from a slightly longer runtime to flesh out the story and characters a bit more.
I was initially nervous about how the voice acting would hold up, but I was pleasantly surprised. Chris Pratt’s voice as Mario is not over the top, which works well. It would have been extremely annoying to hear the super Italian Mario accent for a full hour and thirty minutes. Jack Black’s portrayal of Bowser steals the show and was the best of the film. Anna Taylor Joy and Seth Rogan were good as Princess Peach and Donkey Kong, although I think Rogan may have injected a bit too much of himself in the character.
The direction of the film is solid, with great action set pieces and creative camera angles that make the action feel exciting and dynamic. The animation is stunning, with the characters and world directly designed off the games, but with more polish and details than ever before. The lighting is beautiful, with the bright lights of Rainbow Road and the dark, fiery flames of Bowser standing out as highlights.
Overall, The Super Mario Bros. Movie may not be the deepest or most complex film, but it is a good time for fans of the Mario franchise. The movie captures the fun and whimsy tone of the games and brings it to life on the big screen. While the comedy may not hit every mark, the voice acting, and direction make up for it. I am excited to see where this film series goes next.
I am not the demographic and to be honest this isn’t really a film that I was ever going to like either. The story is beyond simple and the game-based animation – though expertly crafted – did absolutely nothing for me as ninety minutes rolled along devoid of characterisations, thrill or much sense of adventure. I got the feeling this was really an outing for “Mario”, “Luigi” and “Peach” designed to satisfy the die-hard fans, or the children – or both, but if you were not in on the game from the start then you are unlikely to have become any more engaged by the end of this fungi-fest. It wouldn’t be fair to say this is bland – it’s not designed to challenge or take risks: it’s fun for those who grew up with “Mario” et al in their lives and I’m not going to decry that. It’s colourful, pacy, and at times quite well written but perhaps it ought to have a rating that says if you are over 12 then you should be advised against it?
Fun and that’s all
If you only watch the movie with the intention of having fun, you will certainly have a good experience with Mario. However the plot is quite bland and the movie runs at a very fast pace between one scene and another, hampering the progress of the story.
Also, if you haven’t played the Mario games, you’ll fail immeasurably to pick up the game references that are scattered throughout the movie, and there are many of them. For anyone who’s a Mario fan, this movie is literally fan service and it’s no wonder why they’re giving it a 10.
For me, this movie doesn’t lived up to the hype, but for a Mario fan, it certainly did.
Sometimes you come across a movie that takes no risks. It’s light on story, avoids character development, and focuses on getting to the next scene as easily as possible. Mario Bros. Doesn’t have any inherent plot holes or issues, but it tends to leave you in a state of just being a viewer rather than participating in the movie. In the end, it’s not bad per se, but comes off as flat and lifeless.
The positives are all agreed upon by anyone who likes it, because the positives stand out by not being able to be compared against anything else. People have fun with the action. They love the Easter eggs. And the composed music is good. The action is done well, but without much dramatic weight, only carry the movie so far. Easter eggs don’t nor should have any bearing on how good the ovoid is. The music was well incorporated, minus the pop songs that truly don’t work.
It’s not good enough to play things easy, and rely on fans to spot visual Easter eggs, to call the movie good. It’s average at best mostly because it was watchable and didn’t have any outright flaws. It just didn’t take chances that could’ve ended up becoming flaws. Even if you had a good time watching it, there’s not enough value to see it again. If you’re a fan, check it out. If not, you won’t miss a thing by skipping it.
