I like Jim Carrey's character in this one!

It was cute and funny even though I knew nothing of the videogame. Could have done better with the CGI sonic, but it was an interesting adventure. Jim Carrey was his usual over the top self as the villain.

The extremely little gameplay i might have did with the initial video game this celluloid is based on,is infinitely superior to this deeply appalling and abysmal film.Metaphorical racist commentary,bullying,bar brawling,ratchet and feminist females,malicious swirling,and everything else that's clearly a Leftist thing,is the order of the day here.This is also a shameless ripoff of "The Flash" tv series on the CW Network scientifically and socially too.This is most definitely one of the worst films of all time,period.

Okay. Nothing outstanding.

I am not familiar with the video game, but this movie was
enjoyable, and exceeded my low expectations just looking
at the dvd cover art. I wish I had the chance to have
seen it in the theatre, kids and adults of all ages should
enjoy it, I think.

This was so much better than I expected! I was rather unimpressed by the trailers, especially because the CGI looked vastly inferior to Pokemon Detective Pikachu (and it kinda was), but the acting really anchored this movie. James Marsden was amazing, and Ben Schwartz struck a perfect balance between comedy and emotional moments. I'm really not a Jim Carrey fan AT ALL, like normally I'm super irritated by him in every movie, but he NAILED this role. It was spot on, and completely believable. Hands down my favorite performance of his. Oh, and I had pretty much zero knowledge of Sonic the Hedgehog and still really enjoyed it! Definitely check this one out.

I think it was a nice video game themed movie. The previews made it look a bit less exciting than the actual movie. James Marsden did a fantastic job and really helped with the film. He played a good character and made it enjoyable to watch and suspend your disbelief for enough time to carry on the storyline. Jim Carrey played the sonic villain very well -- above the top, but in a way tailored to the role. Overall, the film was enjoyable, fast-paced (no pun intended) and would be enjoyable to rent for the kids. It does have a fair amount of "cartoon style" abuse, but obviously understanding your own kids will certainly help you determine whether it's right for them. Must watch.

This movie was probably one of the funniest movies I have watched. This movie had various funny characters such as Sonic himself and Doctor Egg man. The humor in the movie was understandable for both children and adults. Even though I am not a big Sonic fan or a video game person, I really enjoyed this movie. It was surprising, hilarious, and heartwarming. What I liked about this movie was the animation of Sonic, he looked very real and his spikes and fur looked real as well. The plot was also great, and the ending had me wanting more. I believe there might be a second movie in the coming years. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to try something new or to a video game fan. 5/5 stars

"Overall, I really like this movie. James Marsden working off a puppet or whatever they used for a physical Sonic was great. It never came off that “oh yeah, I’m acting to air”. It was done well. Ben Schwartz was great as Sonic, he was likable, charming, funny and emotional when he had to be..." Copy and paste the link below for the rest of the review!
