Sonic the Hedgehog seems like a character that you could never make into a cinematic staple, leastwise inside of the real world alongside humans like the Transformers. And yet, Paramount has got a real gem on their hands. The first film, which came out two years ago, seemed like luck. Sure it was enjoyable but I didn’t think it would get a sequel. It did and yes, it’s fun.
Is it better than the first movie? Yes, and no. I found the first film to be funnier while this movie felt VERY cheesy throughout the film. The jokes were kind of lame at times and mostly everything was rather predictable and yet, I had a blast. I couldn’t stop smiling, I laughed, I gasped at some points, and I felt the thrill that only Sonic can give me.
This has now become a successful franchise and I am here for the ride. Now, if we don’t visit Green Hills in the next one what’s the point? Because seeing that world on the big screen would blow. My. MIND!!!! And they have to have the iconic music playing.
All in all, this is a fun movie for the family and if you like watching films that bring out your inner child, this is the movie to watch right now.
I’m giving it 3.5 out of 5 stars and 85 out of 100. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a splendid day.

Heh, I watched this last week with my son and ex-wife, but was reluctant to write about it. I feel like I’ve been negative on enough different things lately that I didn’t want to write one that said “this is a 3 for the kids but a 1.5 for the adults who aren’t super into Sonic”, because I think it somewhat fails at being as entertaining for the adults as most Pixar stuff. And, weirdly, I am nerd enough to literally work in the games industry but have never played a Sonic game in my life. 😖

My sister was NOT a fan. In fact, she despised this movie so I get it.
