- "Super Mario Bros, the movie" is inspired by the saga of Nintendo games.
- The mustachioed little plumber, his brother and his comrades confront the evil Bowser.
- The collaboration between Nintendo and Illumination, the studio behind the Minions, is a success.
The world's most famous plumber becomes an animated film star. Super Mario Bros, the film by Aaron Hovarth and Michael Jelenic offer to live adventures of this hero of Nintendo video games, a real delight for lovers of beautiful graphics and good-natured humor who will be able to enjoy his universe without having to handle the controller. At the maneuver, Illumination, the Franco-American studio that created the Minions, gives life to this delirious universe.
"The main ingredients of the Nintendo game series lend themselves particularly to entertaining, original and inventive film projects aimed at viewers who are not familiar with the world of games," said Chris Meledandri, CEO of Illumination. In close collaboration with Shigeru Miyamoto, Mario's father, Illumination brings to life the mythical characters of the saga: Mario of course, but also his brother Luigi, Peach, Donkey Kong and Toad, united to beat the villain Bowser.
The references to the games are the joy of fans as they dot the story with a delectable generosity. Some elements such as the rainbow road or a Luma, a small depressive flame, are particularly delectable. However, it is not necessary to feel in known territory to have fun as the characters are endearing and well animated. After experiencing a disastrous live-action adaptation in 1993, Mario has finally earned his stripes as a movie star. We are happy to explore pipes, pipes and magical universes with this plumber.
