If you want [a] light, fun escape, this is it.

Sure, there's enough here to divert small people for a while, but their parents would do well to bring a blindfold and ear plugs.

File this one away next to the live-action Alvin and the Chipmunks, the live-action Yogi Bear, and the live-action Rocky and Bullwinkle. It's nothing we haven't seen before.

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.

It may not be particularly memorable, but in an era where family-friendly movies like Paddington can be a hit across all audiences, Sonic more than manages to hold its own.

It's not terrible. It's bearable. I had gone in thinking it would be terrible, yet I was not totally bothered by the design...

Fowler's Sonic is what it is: family fun, which in the U.S.-Pixar and Into the Spiderverse notwithstanding-still tends to mean only-sort-of fun and adamantly not-smart.

It all honestly left me a little bit bored.

Affectionate, charming, and genial.

The key to Sonic the Hedgehog is Jim Carrey, with ridiculously tiny glasses and an aggressive mustache, plus a crazed glare and omnipresent smirk.

There's not a lot of surprises, but I had fun along the way.

As much as casting Carrey in a cartoonish villain role feels like a too-easy, nearly groan-worthy choice, the comic is great, relying not only on his rubbery face for outsized expressions but also some legit funny bits.

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.

Given where this movie started, it's kind a miracle it's as watchable as it is.
February 13, 2020
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.

They do make garbage like they used to.
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.
