Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog may have a predictable and juvenile story, but it had a lot of charm and Jim Carrey makes it sort of worth it!!!

Real Rating: 3.5 Donut Lords

What I Like:

-Jim Carrey as the famed video game villain, Dr. Robotnik was great, you get Jim Carrey at his finest, and I really enjoyed seeing his obsessive behavior, it was fun seeing him
-This film had a lot of charm which works great for a kids movie, the biggest reason why is because Ben Schwartz voicing Sonic worked really well, and the chemistry with James Marsden really made it authentic
-The action scenes worked well, didn’t really look too fake at all, and that is not easy to do

The So So:

-The comedy was very juvenile, but then again, what did you expect from a kid’s movie, though there are some parts that got me laughing, especially with the things Dr. Robotnik and Sonic says, but do they really have to add a fart joke, smh

What I Didn’t Like:

-The story was very predictable mainly because it is a typical kid’s movie, it is not surprising, but definitely not fresh

Overall:

Although I wasn’t a fan of changing Sonic’s look because of public outcry, because it makes these “fans” too entitled to speak their minds, I’m glad the new classic look worked. The story may be way too ordinary, but the comedy kept it afloat and the charm and Jim Carrey makes it sort of worth. I use to play the original video games, and watching this film does actually bring back memories. For that I appreciate it!!!
