Sonic The Hedgehog (2020) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Whilst far from essential (and by far I mean Earth to the Moon far), Sonic The Hedgehog is a perfectly reasonable Saturday afternoon film that shows enough respect to the original game whilst managing to be its own thing.  And considering the issues round the original trailer and character design that’s no mean feat.  Yup the filmmakers (including producer Tim Miller) have managed to just about pull Sonic off… helped considerably by the efforts of both James Marsden and Jim Carrey (who gives his most OTT performance in years) .  So kids will like it, old Sega fans will accept it and everyone else will probably hate it.  But honestly it’s probably what you would expect from a film called Sonic The Hedgehog…

Best Bit: Carrey is great fun

Cinema, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: Super Mario Bros, Angry Birds Movie, Detective Pikachu

6 out of 10 stars
