SONIC THE HEDGEHOG (2020)

It’s… fine, actually?

I don’t really have any attachment to the character beyond the Genesis games and even then found his Radical 90s ‘Tude to be a marketing department trying too hard, but this isn’t terrible.

It’s kinda just a sweet and simple enough story about friendship, broken up every 15min or so by Jim Carrey hamming it up like only Jim Carrey can.

Honestly I was expecting this to be a hate watch but it’s not hateable, it’s had all that focus-grouped out of it. Your own mileage will vary depending on how much you already cared about Sonic in the first place, I suppose.

Kinda sad that this was what broke some of the VFX houses with the design backlash last year when all it amounts to is in the same ballpark as DETECTIVE PIKACHU – a perfectly servicable bit of branded content and nothing more.
