This movie was the first of its kind; it opened a gateway for producers to a new kind of film, video game based movies. Strangely this is appropriate because Mario Brothers the video game was a gateway for gamers to enter the new and innovative world of video games. While the Mario Brothers game has always been remembered for its greatness, the film is a universal joke among gamers. The movie was so terrible and so farfetched from the Mario Brothers universe, and it was only the beginning."
