It's been a pretty slow week for me when it comes to movies. The first film to be based on a video-game, this film generates neither fun nor excitement. The story involves the title siblings, plumbers from Brooklyn (Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo), who are transported to a strange world, where the evil reptilian King Koopa (incredibly overacted by Dennis Hopper) rules supreme. They must save Princess Daisy (Samantha Mathis) from Hopper's clutches and restore order to the mushroom kingdom.

That's the story in a nutshell. This movie has a lot less appeal than the video-game that inspired it. Sadly to say, Hollywood didn't learn their lessons after this. They continued to produce more video game inspired bombs like Street Fighter and Double Dragon. At least we know this won't have a sequel.

My Rating = One Star
