Greetings, fellow gamers! The wait is finally over – the new Super Mario Bros movie is here, and it’s time for us to put on our nerd glasses and review it!
First things first, let’s get the elephant out of the room – we all remember the disaster that was the 1993 Super Mario Bros movie. It’s hard to forget the cringe-worthy portrayal of our beloved Mario and Luigi by Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo. But fear not, my fellow geeks, for the new Super Mario Bros movie is a refreshing and nostalgic take on the iconic game.
The new movie brings us back to the Mushroom Kingdom, where Mario and his friends must save Princess Peach from the clutches of Bowser. The movie does an excellent job of capturing the essence of the game, from the characters’ appearances and personalities to the iconic sound effects and music.
The headline-making casting of Chris Pratt embodies the Italian plumber we all know and love. Charlie Day as Luigi brings his unique brand of humor to the character. The rest of the cast, including Jack Black as Bowser and Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, all deliver memorable performances.
One of the most impressive aspects of the movie is the stunning visuals. The Mushroom Kingdom is brought to life in vivid detail, from the lush landscapes to the intricate architecture of Bowser’s castle. The action scenes are also top-notch, with thrilling set pieces that will have you on the edge of your seat.
Now that the movie is out and a huge success, it’s time to start stocking up on Super Mario Bros merchandise. Lucky for us, there are plenty of awesome options out there! Here are some of my favorites:
