I went to the movie theater to see Super Mario Bros. when it was initially released, and 23 years later, I still have a horrible taste in my mouth. This is why Mario Bros. fan films are so important – to give us a palette cleanser and to show us what could be if H’wood would give the property one more chance. The latest offering to the fan film catalogue features the Mario Bros. getting a Goodfellas treatment.
We’ve seen select chapters from the fan film, Mario Warfare, but now Beat Down Boogie has released the entire film in one complete viewing experience.
I’m not a huge fan of people injuring themselves on video for the amusement of others, but when Mario and Luigi show up, it turns things I don’t find funny into a laugh riot.
Mario doesn’t have to be all about jumping mushrooms, and saving princesses, sometimes thing get a bit more intense.

I can’t wait to see what happens next… I’m going to guess there will be a rescue attempt only to discover the princess is in another castle.
