THE SUPER MARIO BROS. MOVIE (Released to Theaters in the USA 2023)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Super Mario Bros. Movie—WOW!—is another wonderful film from Illumination Studios (The Grinch, Minions: Rise of Gru and Sing 2). This studio gives Pixar strong competition in the animated movie market and it will be interesting to see what Illumination Studios comes up with next. The presentation of team Mario follows the game closely and delves more into expanding the relationship between the two brothers and their dedication to establishing justice in in Princess Peach's world.  The film creates its share of nostalgia for anyone who played the Nintendo game as it was released. The presentation and portrayal are good. The movie was recently released from theatrical distribution and is available on the Netflix Streaming platform. It is also available as a rent/purchase on the Amazon Prime platform.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The movie is a good one to include in the home video library and will be pleasing to children due to its reliance on Crayola bright coloring for its characters and scenery. The movie serves the whole family.
