unwatchable spoof of videogames
21 May 2006 | by damonfosterSee all my reviews

It took over a month to watch this talky, stupid, boring, cheap comedy from the Philippines. I could only stomach this cinematic ineptitude for 15 minutes at a time! Needless to say, I was disappointed, because I'm always curious to see a sci-fi movie from a country not known for science fiction. Of course, I'm also not a fan of videogames (I've never played MORTAL COMBAT), so if there are in-jokes, I'm not getting them. Language is also a factor, because MAGIC COMBAT was never intended for those of us who are Tagalog-impaired.

Infantile slapstick and childish sound FX 'highlight' this pathetically cheap farce about college or high school students Mario & Luigi. These annoying geeks go through a number of dumb comedic bits before something magical brings video game characters to life. Its action scenes are limited and won't impress fans of even the worst martial arts films! If you want to see an obscure movie's take on video games, seek out the Korean oddity STREET LAWLESS instead, and let MAGIC COMBAT rot into obscurity.
