Jim Carrey, in particular, gets to flex a muscle audiences haven't seen from him in about a decade.

Far more charming, coherent and less chaotic than expected, Sonic the Hedgehog succeeds where Cats failed and successfully reverses its pre-determined narrative set out by the Internet.

Sonic the Hedgehog is just good enough where we wouldn't mind a second dashing adventure in the not-to-distant future.

Sonic the Hedgehog is a much better movie than expected, and if they deliver anything near this level the next time around, moviegoers will have much to cheer.

Sonic is a surprisingly fully realized character trapped in a two-dimensional film.

Sonic's fan will broadly approve. Family audiences will enjoy it and forget it. Anyone with a specific interest in cinema already know what they are likely to think.

the kind of film you don't necessarily mind spending 90 minutes with, but it's also not necessarily a 90 minutes you would ever acknowledge publicly that you enjoyed

I'm a 100% sure this is the best you can get out of a Sonic the Hedgehog movie. Hilarious. [Full review in Spanish]

As the credits roll, you may leave with an amused smile, but not the emotional surge to cheer for time well spent. Don't hold your breath for Sonic's sidekick Tails to appear. You'll likely have to wait for the sequel in "Sonic 2."

Adults, even an aged millennial, should get a kick out of seeing Carrey actually have fun in a role for the first time in years. He taps into all his old manic energy here.
