The world contains many terrible video game movies. This isn't one of them.

The simple storyline finds a way to adapt the games' characters and themes, by adding universal concepts such as friendship to the original games' tension between nature and machines.

Affectionate, charming, and genial.

I was just thrilled to be reminded of everything Jim Carrey can do when he lets himself riff.

Whatever else it may achieve, Sonic the Hedgehog is unlikely to elevate the based-on-a-videogame category above the dismal level where it has wallowed for the past quarter-century.

It's not the cavalcade of horror promised by that first trailer, but rather the kind of bad movie one forgets instantly upon leaving the theater.
February 13, 2020
It's too inoffensive to be hated and too wretched to be enjoyable.

Sonic the Hedgehog might move like a bolt of lightning once his feet start flying, but even with the orthodontia done to correct his chompers, the movie bearing his name still goes nowhere, fast.

"Sonic the Hedgehog" is bright. It's cheery. It's here and then it's gone in a relatively compact 100 minutes, leaving little beyond a slightly sweet aftertaste to mark its passage.

"Sonic" isn't transcendent family entertainment but it gets the job done, and Carrey's manic shtick elevates the proceedings.
February 13, 2020
"Nailed it!" screams Sonic at one point and that might be a fitting summary for the film.
February 13, 2020
Fast and fun, but forgettable.

If the title makes you wince, know the movie is a lot better than it deserves to be. You'll actually care about what happens to the prickly blue dude, even if you never cared about getting to zone seven.

Sonic's look was famously corrected after the movie's trailer triggered something akin to online panic; perhaps fans should have been consulted on the script as well.
February 13, 2020
Might not become a kid-movie classic, but it makes for a great little getaway to enjoy with the whole family. That, in itself, earns a golden ring.
February 13, 2020
Carrey is the film's most prized weapon, letting us wallow in the ridiculousness of this whole enterprise without ever holding himself above it.
February 13, 2020
Fowler and screenwriters Pat Casey and Josh Miller establish pleasing and slightly offbeat characters, while skewing the world into video game terms, so no one ever seems as if they're in true peril.
February 13, 2020
In the end, "Sonic" is quippy without being mean, and sweet without being sappy, making this a trip that's well worth taking.
February 13, 2020
The production may have riled the internet months ago, with furor over the look of its first trailer sending FX crews back to work on a character redesign; but what's made it to the screen is light-hearted fun unlikely to offend anyone.
February 13, 2020
All in all, like its fast-moving, attention-deficient hero, this just feels like a rush job.
