i actually found it pretty decent. maybe on par with detective pikachu. i really like jim carrey in this movie, even if he's doing his jim carrey schtick, he gives a different, wacky but evil interpretation of eggman that i enjoyed. and i sorta wish we had more cop stuff going on but hey, we got sonic running fast a lot. there isn't much...in-depth stuff for die-hard sonic fans like you're not going to find much deep lore, but it was entertaining for me regardless.
As far as Sonic movies go, this can be a lot worse. I think it's a fun brainless popcorn flick but don't expect too much Sonic elements beyond Sonic, going fast, and rings. Oh and there's Jim Carey there too.
I just saw the movie. It was OK - my rating is 7.5/10.
I fully agree that there was a small bit more flossing than there needed to be.
If the sequel (which most definitely will happen) has Tails in it, I sure hope that they don't have to call the third "Sonic 3 and Knuckles"; we don't need memes in this movie. Although memes didn't stop them from dropping Sanic in there.
Really good for little ones. Not a lot there for oldies / 10
Felt very 90s kid movie. Had a lot of unironic camp, like TMNT or Power Rangers. Though they kept splashing in modern references like Uber and 'flossing' which seemed out of place. Or maybe I'm just old. :P
Jim Carrey is perfect casting, particularly for the 90s kids movie feel. He does a great job.
Sonic is very childish. He's different to his rude-dude attitude from Sonic X and the modern games. I probably would have preferred the latter but ymmv. Both are obnoxious in their own ways so pick your poison.
There was a nice Green Hill Zone musical arrangement towards the end. Made me smile.
The post-credits scene with Tails was a surprise. He was animated really well. But now that the VFX studio who worked on the movie has shut down, I don't like the chances of a sequel. Maybe if the movie makes bank.
In all it had some good gags and was fun enough. I wouldn't call it a great movie. It's Garfield-CGI-movie kiddy fun. I liked Detective Pikachu a LOT more, though.
Now excuse me, I'd like to do a full rewatch of Sonic X. I never watched it in full. XD
