Well, well, well… A good video game movie for a change. Video game movies have been usually terrible, unwatchable, but, things are finally looking up. Pokemon’s Detective Pikachu movie that came out last year and now this movie have been very entertaining. I have to say, I like this one slightly more. Mostly because of Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik. This is the best he has been since Ace Ventura. It’s so good to see him back to his old self. I would see this movie just because of that alone. This is a movie that both the kids and adults will enjoy. I was surprised by how much subtle adult humor was in this movie.
The action scenes are ripped off straight from Quicksilver’s X-Men: Days of future past scenes, though, and that’s what bothered me most about the movie. Now let’s talk about Sonic’s design. I don’t know what they were thinking when the first trailer for this movie was released. That was the stuff of nightmares. Thankfully, they changed him after listening to the fan backlash, and, man does he look great. Just like in the video game, and also super cute. I kind of want to have a pet hedgehog now
