So bad I have not enough words to describe it. I can nitpick as a fan of the video game how this live action version fails and I can tear it apart as a film fan, but why bother. You can either avoid this film like a plague of fungus, or you can watch it over a few beers and laugh...
The huge success of the video games featuring animated Italian plumbers the Mario Brothers led to this $42 million live action movie. The two brothers (Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo) live in Manhatta... read more

So could this be one of the worst films ever made?? yep we have a contender. Huge on hype and anticipation but hugely sole destroying upon release. Its hard to comprehend what the creators of this film were looking to achieve, the style, looks, soundtrack, plot, basically any lin...

Oh god this film... This film was every one of these actor's low points in their carrer's. From the second I was told there was a Super Mario Brothers movie, I knew it was going to be bad, but I wasent expecting it to be this bad. I should start off by saying the film was narra...

One of the first awful video game to screen adaptation. This adaptation of the popular video game franchise, Super Mario Bros. To say that this film is trash is an understatement. This film is poorly constructed; everything about it seems out of place, poorly conceived, sloppy an...

How did we get this out of a simple video game about an italian plumber who has to fight monsters in order to save the princess. It really shouldn't have been that hard to adapt. Mario and Luigi aren't even brothers in the movie. The film's sets are completely ripped off from ...

Super Mario Bros is a terrible movie, it was one of the worst f#cking things that I have ever had to experience. The plot is so god awful and boring and ruined the video game so much that it mnade me sick to my stomach. The cast was horrible, what the hell were they thinking. ...

There are some charming aspects to the film; but the target audience is in dire question.
It strays too far from the original game to be embraced by the nostalgia of the grown-up gaming community.
The premise is silly enough to be tailored to children, but thats not at all what...

I actually have not a whole lot of issues with this. Sure, it's got that bizarre 90s feel to it with outrageous colors and camera angles, but that's part of why it's so believable as a video game movie. Both Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo do Mario and Luigi proud, being almost ex...

The Super Mario Brothers live action film is a complete fail! I hate this film so much that I have come to love it. Every moment of this film was shot to make an audience smile at how laughably stupid it is. If you want to make a Super Mario film, then make a Super Mario film, no...

Super Mario Bros. is so bad, it's good! A must-see for fans of the video games! It just depends on your mood while watching it.
