Verified Review

You never with videogame movies but Sonic the Hedgehog exceeded my expectations. Sonic looked great and Ben Schwartz hit it out of the park with his voice acting as Sonic. Jim Carrey was in his old form bringing back the energy and magic of his early career performances. For a film about a little blue alien running for his life from an evil genius doctor, they packed in a surprising amount of heart and emotion as there were underlying. themes of loneliness, abandonment, and friendship. The story made sense and gave the film more impact than just a silly videogame movie. Sonic was great fun, funny, abd touching at the same time. It's a perfect family friendly film, a love letter to long time fans of Sonic, and a great time at the movies.

I submit that Sonic the Hedgehog is exhausting. Here is a film that refuses to stop making quips, somehow pulling off the unique feat of never making any of those quips funny.

While Fowler keeps the story moving efficiently, Marsden's easy geniality prevents the simple narrative from feeling rote. Carrey gets a moment or two to cut loose.

Despite some sweetness and playful absurdity, this big-screen outing feels mostly like derivative, fussed-over product.
