The Super Mario Bros. Movie Review: A Fun and Nostalgic Trip Down Memory Lane

The Super Mario Bros. Movie has finally hit the big screen, and as a long-time fan of the franchise, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Critics have been quick to dismiss the film due to its lack of story, but I believe that is missing the point. This movie is a love letter to the world of Mario, and it delivers that in spades.

The film centers around Mario and Luigi, two brothers trying to start a plumbing business in Brooklyn. After a twist of fate, they find themselves pulled into the Mushroom Kingdom and separated. Mario teams up with Princess Peach and the Toads to save the kingdom from the villainous Bowser, while Luigi finds himself in a dangerous land of lava and Shy Guys.

While the story may be simple, the film makes up for it with its stunning animation and attention to detail. The Mushroom Kingdom is brought to life in a way that truly captures the essence of the games, and there are plenty of Easter eggs and references that will have fans grinning from ear to ear. From Mario's iconic run to the signature side-scrolling action, this movie is a feast for the eyes.

The standout feature of the film, however, is the incredible score. Brian Tyler's music is a true highlight and is undoubtedly the star of the show. The orchestral arrangements of Koji Kondo's themes are breathtaking, and Tyler's use of recognizable item sounds and Luigi's Mansion motifs is a real treat for longtime fans.

As for the voice cast, they do an excellent job of bringing these beloved characters to life. Chris Pratt's Mario and Charlie Day's Luigi have great chemistry, and Jack Black's Bowser is a true delight. Seth Rogen's Donkey Kong and Fred Armisen's Cranky Kong also provide plenty of laughs, and Keegan-Michael Key's Toad is simply adorable.

Sure, the film may suffer from some pacing issues, but that's a small price to pay for such a fun and nostalgic trip down memory lane. The Super Mario Bros. Movie is a must-see for any fan of the franchise and a great introduction for those who are new to the world of Mario. I give it an 9/10 and urge you to give it a chance, regardless of what the mainstream reviewers may say. You may want to stick around after the movie for the end credits.

The Super Mario Bros. movie is set to release in the Philippines on April 19th.
