Special effects superhero 'Action Movie Kid' stars in amazing Maro Kart movie

A Dreamworks employee whose special effects-laden videos have gained millions of YouTube views has released a new batch of movies.

One short film, starring Daniel Hashimoto's three-year-old son James, otherwise known as Action Movie Kid, sees him take on Super Mario villain Bowser by unleashing a green turtle shell on an errant truck in a supermarket carpark.

Another co-stars US TV host Kevin Frazier as Action Movie Kid plays catch with predictably disastrous results.

"I made them mostly because he is really funny and imaginative," Mr Hashimoto told the Daily News. "James doesn't watch TV or movies very much. We play tons of games with him throughout the day."

"I think they are a lot of fun," mother Mandy Richardville added of the videos. "It's so cute watching Hashi film James while he's playing around. Then he goes and turns it to magic later."

A compilation of Action Movie Kid's early YouTube videos has attracted over 1.4m YouTube views.
