There Will Be Brawl is a dark parody of the Smash-Bros's video games, and by extension the Nintendo universe.
This is a story about the mushroom kingdom long after its glory days. Now a city in decay, with many of the classic characters now just shadows of their former selves. Its gritty and dark, playing out like a Noir film. Dont expect a cheerful or kid-friendly parody here.
The story follows Luigi as he investigates a series of grissly murders, and unwrapps a conspiracy that could lead to the destruction of the kingdom. The acting is great, and the world building very well done. The juxtaposition of the light characters in such a dark setting works great, and when a comedic moment comes its normally that much more funny because its framed in such a serious narrative. Its also worth noting, despite the limited budget, they manage to make "The Cannibal" character very creepy. (no prize's for guessing what classic Nintendo character that is).
Sadly not all is perfect, as the main storyline doesn't come together very well at all. In fact, it gets really confusing and it seems as if it wasn't all planned that well. Normally in a parody you wouldn't expect this to mater, but with such a serious plotline its a shame they fall down at the last hurdle.
