The Super Mario Bros. Movie

The Super Mario Bros. Movie is fun for the family, but I felt it was too much fan service that makes the story thin!!!

Real Rating:

3.5 Toads

What I Like:

-The animation was awesome, all the different worlds you see was designed beautifully, and all the action was straight up eye candy
-It is fun enough for the whole family to enjoy
-The voice cast was fine, all that hate on Chris Pratt as Mario was just dumb, but I also enjoyed Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong and Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, plus there were some surprises here and there to enjoy

The So So:

-There was a lot of fan service, and to me I believe it is too much, like it had to pick and choose doing the Donkey Kong game (and possibly Super Smash Brothers), and Mario Karts which both were fun in their own way, but it just felt a little overwhelming

What I Didn’t Like:

-With all the fan service, I felt that it affected the storyline, it felt rushed and tried to put way too much stuff in a hour and a half movie, let alone there are some plot holes in it as well


It was a decent film. It is fun with its animation and action. The parts I didn’t really like is not what you all think. It was the oversaturated fan service that kind of affected it for me. It is not for the voice cast which seem to get all the flack, and unmerited flack. The voice cast is what made it fun as well. Only wish the story was a lot better, but it is enough to get by for a sequel. Hopefully they will improve the story then, and focus on one thing. Regardless, I still hope for a Super Smash Brothers collaborative film. Fingers crossed!!!
