Sonic the Hedgehog QuickViews

March 11, 2020 // in QuickView - Micro Reviews by David Deverett

One of our favorite video games of all time now has a movie of his own: Sonic the Hedgehog.

 

When a huge power outage hits all around the world, Sonic (Ben Schwartz) teams up with a cop (James Marsden) to get all of his coins back to his world, while at the same time dodging and avoiding his enemy Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey).

 

Even though the plot and story are nothing special, the cast’s performances, Sonic’s design and faithfulness to the character will please all fans from start to finish.

 

Office Rating: 8/10

 

*Fun Fact*: When the first trailer was released, viewers were horrified to see Sonic have human, scary and ugly teeth. So much so that the movie was pushed back from November 2019 to Valentine’s Day this year so that the character could look the way everyone remembered from the games. Wonderfully it was universally praised and was a hit with critics and audiences as well as becoming the number 1 movie in America
