We Really Wish This Super Mario Kung Fu Movie Actually Existed

Posted by Damien McFerran

It's already better than the Hollywood effort

If you're old enough to remember the terrible Hollywood live-action Super Mario Bros. movie then there's a good chance you still carry the mental scars. Even lead actor Bob Hoskins isn't a fan!

It would appear that the world is still waiting for the definitive Mario movie, but in the meantime you can check out this creative martial arts interpretation of Nintendo's most famous character.

Created by Dayside Productions, Chinese Super Mario is essentially a trailer for a movie which doesn't exist, but you'll wish it did by the time the epic 2 minute, 43 second saga is over.

You can check out Mario's robust Kung Fu skills - as well as his upgraded fireball-throwing ability - via the video below.

If a new Super Mario movie is ever made, I want Bowser to look like... well, Bowser. No human-esque characteristics.

For the briefest moment, I couldn't make out the subtitle and thought Peach said "Mario... I LIKE you" which cracked me up.

I dunno, this honestly might've had less to do with the games than the other one did, and that says something.

That was pretty cool. It may not have as much to do with Mario as the movie did but a good kung-fu movie loosely based on Mario is better than a crap movie with more to do with the series.
