Today went I watching Sonic The Hedgehog and the redesign of Sonic totally saved this film for sure. The classic game vibe you get when you watch this film and when the film starts you get taken back to the original Sonic the Hedgehog game. Even though Jaleel White didn’t voice Sonic in this big screen adaptation I am not sad at all because Ben Schwartz made the role his own. His take on sonic and the sense of humor he brings to the character is wonderful and his chemistry with James Marsden says Sonic looks up to him like a big brother. The animation especially for Sonic is perfect and at times from different camera angles he looks real. The meta jokes Sonic pulls off is great and some of the references he makes to other franchises are great laugh out loud moments. Of course the Mannequin challenge has become a trademark in films alot and you get that in this film. The moment Sonic has is pretty awesome in this film. When it comes to Jim Carrey’s Dr. Robotnik he didn’t have any flaws in my opinion. Carrey was perfectly cast as the villain. I do think Carrey had to memorize his dialogue because he was natural and you felt like he stepped out of the classic animated cartoon from the 90’s show. He brings all the qualities with that egocentric, maniacal, superiority complex, always being right, eccentric, zany with his portrayal. There is so much more to explore for his character, Sonic and the other worlds. Definitely this is just the first journey for Sonic. It’s definitely worth watching and I hope Sonic gets a sequel with more fleshed out story arc and expanding the universe. Also you get a nice in the end of the film by saying to be continues be amazing final fight scene with doctor robotnik also mid credit scenes after credit.
