The world needed a hero, we got a hedgehog. Powered with incredible speed, Sonic The Hedgehog (voiced by Ben Schwartz), aka The Blue Blur, embraces his new home on Earth. That is, until he accidentally knocks out the power grid and sparks the attention of super-uncool evil genius Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey). Now it’s super-villain vs. super-sonic in an all-out race across the globe to stop Robotnik from using Sonic’s unique power for world domination. Sonic teams up with The Donut Lord, aka Sheriff Tom Wachowski (James Marsden), to save the planet in this live-action adventure comedy that’s fun for the whole family.
THIS MOVIE WAS SO GOOD! I loved everything about it – the constant humor, the special effects, the heart (so much heart!), and especially Jim Carrey’s depiction of Dr. Robotnik. This movie was seriously magical, and I regret waiting this long to watch it!
I am so, so glad they decided to do away with the old character model they were going to use – if they had ignored the public outcry and used it anyway, the movie wouldn’t have anywhere near as excellent. I mean, here’s what they originally envisioned, compared with what they finally went with:
See what I mean?! The first version looks like something out of a Stephen King story, while the second is just straight-up Sonic.
And the ending! Make sure to watch past the credits, because… I’m not going to spoil it, but Anne and I started screaming. Seriously, if you haven’t watched this movie yet, please do yourself a favor and check it out. It goes by fast (as a Sonic movie should) and is entertaining as hell; I promise you it will be the best $5 you’ve spent all year. 🥰
