First things first. What the hell kind of crap where the producers on? Magic Mushrooms?!?!? (pa dum *ping*)I'm serious, people. If you must make an adaptation of a video game, at least keep it just a bit related to the thing it's adapting it's adaptation from. It's not enough just to have the name of the adaptee as the title. Sheesh.
Let's assess. Super Mario is a campy video game. Campy is funny. The movie is a science fiction type action film. It's NOT funny. I mean, how else are you supposed to make a Super Mario film but campy?!?
Bob Hoskins, I've got to say, is good. Probably the films saving grace. He's played a plumber before. Remember him in BRAZIL? He was a damn good plumber there. He's a good plumber here. Hell, he even looks like Super Mario.It's just very un-Mario-like. And I don't like.
