It is common knowledge that not only Super Mario Bros has had its own film production. Over the years, various video games have been brought to the big screen, receiving praise or detraction, it all depends on the feelings of the true fans and the reception of the film critics.

With a 59% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but with great acceptance and praise from fans of the video game, Super Mario Bros. remained the box office leader for several weeks until the recent release of Guardians of the Galaxy 3, which finally dethroned the most famous plumber in video games.

These are some other movies based on video games and their respective ratings:

Mortal Kombat (1995 and 2021):

Focused on saving the fate of humanity’s future, three martial arts experts face off against demonic adversaries, as the title suggests, in a death match.

This first ‘live action’ received many negative reviews from fans and has only a 45% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The second, released two years ago, had a slightly better acceptance and has 54%.

Sonic the Movie (2020):

One of the films that generated the most debate even before its premiere. The reason? In the trailer, fans were shocked at how Sonic looked very different from the video game.

The faithful fans of the video game that went on the market in 1991, united on social networks to demand a Sonic from Paramount Pictures more in keeping (physically) with that of the video game. Their criticisms and requests were heard and the production company made the change, shortly after the premiere. It received a 64% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

In 2022, its second part was also well received by fans and children. It has a rating of 69%.

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu (2019):

After the trailer surfaced on YouTube, many fans thought the movie wouldn’t do the game justice. But the surprise of many was quite pleasant after its official release in theaters, with a film that caused nostalgia among fans and captivated a new generation.

This movie has a 68% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Uncharted (2022):

This adventure game that captivated and entertained many ‘gamers’ finally had its ‘live action’ last year.

Starring Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg, the treasure hunters did not captivate the fans of the video game despite the excitement that it promised in its trailer and its main actors. He got 41% rating.

Assassin’s Creed (2016):

Given the global success of the video game released in 2007, from which 46 more games were released for the different consoles, no less was expected of his own feature film. Spoiler alert: it did disappoint.

Starring Michael Fassbender, this film that revolves around a mysterious secret organization capable of standing up to the Templars, did not live up to expectations and left the ‘hard fans’ of the video game saga with a bad taste in their mouths . It has an 18% rating.

Tomb Raider (2001):

Starring Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft, this film did not meet the expectations of many but became a kind of cult film which, to this day, generates discussion.

This treasure-hunting heroine from a wealthy British family got only a 20% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

A ‘remake’ was released in 2018, now with Alicia Vikander in the role of Lara, in a version focused on the origin of the heroine, which more convinced critics with a 52% rating.

Super Mario Bros. (1993):

Of course, it could not be missing from this list. Mario and Luigi, the most beloved plumbers in video games, had their ‘live action’ 30 years ago, which became one of the most disapproved films in the film world in general and not only those that have been based on video games.

Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo brought the plumber brothers to life in this film that received countless negative reviews ranging from the questionable quality of its special effects to its script.

He got 24% rating.
