The Best Video-Game Movie Yet? — Sonic The Hedgehog | Movie Review
Sonic the Hedgehog is a fun and comedic adventure that anyone can enjoy watching. It truly exceeded the expectations I had. Hardcore fan or not, this movie undoubtedly enjoyable. Could it be the best video-game movie of all time?
Sonic is exactly as I wanted him to be in this movie. He’s cocky, flamboyant and engaging. But at the same time is caring, friendly and funny. His portrayal in the movie was great. Tom is Sonic’s partner throughout the journey and he soon creates a closer and stronger bond with him as the story progresses. Their relationship is a very great one, that delivers very good messages about family and friendship. Jim Carrey’s performance of Dr. Robotnik / Eggman really was the cherry on top. There is no doubt that he absolutely nailed this role, having his performance be wacky and funny, yet engaging. It’s what kept me going if I briefly got bored for a moment. Also, the CGI I thought was top-notch. Sonic, Robotnik’s drones, they all looked really really great.
One of the things that I liked the most about this movie was the road trip aspect. I liked it because it led to character development, and it gave us a deeper look into how these characters really are and how they each interact with one another. It really was a nice and charming addition.
The one thing that I didn’t like however, were some of the choices made for the characters in the first act of the movie. I didn’t like some of the various choices made for these characters in the beginning of the movie. I had to get used to it until the second act began, and where things got great.
In conclusion Sonic the Hedgehog is undoubtedly enjoyable to watch and you will not regret watching this movie. Like I mentioned before, Sonic fan or not, this is a movie that will not disappoint.
I give Sonic The Hedgehog a B+
