Overview: When Sonic opens a portal to our world he’ll face bigger threats than the ones that he’s run from all his life.
Based on the legendary SEGA video game, Sonic The Hedgehog (Ben Schwartz) follows the title character as he faces the wrath of the evil Dr Robotnik (Jim Carrey). Going into the film I was expecting the run of the mill video game movie, but thanks to an intriguing plot and an electric performance from Carrey the film has finally broken the trend of terrible video game adaptations. The film will satisfy long-term Sonic fans but also entertain the whole family, and the performance from Carrey is worth the price of admission alone. I’d highly recommend this film if you’re looking for a fun time at the cinema.
