Sonic the Hedgehog

Directed by Jeff Fowler. With Ben Schwartz, James Marsden, Jim Carrey, Tika Sumpter. After discovering a small, blue, fast hedgehog, a small-town police officer must help it defeat an evil genius who wants to do experiments on it.

I went to Sonic Burger before hand, because if I was going to have to sit through yet another failure of a video game adaptation to the movie format, I might as well have a delicious Sonic Burger in my belly. I had a Diet Coke during dinner, which definitely quenched my thirst and gave me a slight energy boost from the 42 mg of caffeine, which I was sure I would need to stay away during what I expected to be a slog of heavy handed video game references.

Turns out though, I didn’t need that energy boost, Sonic: The Movie starts off fast and never lets off the peddle, with a story that felt genuine and never felt overly pandering to the fans of a franchise that frankly needed something that would reward them for decades of aimless wandering. The only complaint that I could possibly make is that the product placement is way over the top. In fact, there’s one for Zillow in the movie that’s so over the top I straight up laughed at it for a good 30 seconds after the bit was done.

This was a good film to watch in the theater!
