Sonic the Hedgehog

A Mediocre adaptation to the famous Game - 5.5/10

by This Is My Review

Hollywood is still trying to transform anything that we love (or used to love) into a movie. “Sonic the Hedgehog” isn’t the worst video game adaptation into the big screen... but it’s far from being great. I liked the story and the messages behind it, I’m aware that it was different from the game but after all, slight changes should be made so it can fit the movie’s structure. Sonic was not bad, the CGI was good and the character was lovable. Unfortunately, the script was my main issue, it was too bland and lame. The whole narration in the first act felt more like spoon-feeding. They were trying so hard to explain everything as if the movie was targeting kids, but on the other hand many references and jokes were clearly aiming adults (fans of the original SEGA game). Speaking of jokes, they were a hit and miss and not all of them were suitable for the plot. Jim Carrey was the funniest part to be honest, yeah he was overacting at some point but it was okay, he was good as Dr. Robotnik. “Sonic the Hedgehog” is not a bad movie, the script just needed to be more mature... but I guess fans of the game will enjoy it.
