Sonic the Hedgehog 

 

I am very thankful Family Friendly Gaming was given a copy of Sonic the Hedgehog on Blu-ray + DVD + Digital. This copy also came with a really cool comic book done in the 16-bit style giving a brief overview of the movie’s storyline. I know plenty of gamers that are skeptical of video game related movies. Look no further than the Super Mario Bros movie for proof. I can tell you that Sonic the Hedgehog is pretty good.

The most interesting aspect of Sonic the Hedgehog is what the rings do. They allow characters to teleport to other places. How does it work? Sonic thinks of where he wants to go and the ring opens a portal to that other place. That place can be another world or somewhere else on this world. Gives new meaning to all of that ring collection we have done in the Sonic the Hedgehog video games over the years. I thought they were just like coins – something to collect to earn extra lives. I wonder if the Sonic the Hedgehog will incorporate that mechanic in the future.

We had a blast watching Sonic the Hedgehog. This movie is hilarious on so many levels. Sonic is really lonely because different creatures want to abuse his power. Dr Robotnik is the latest example of this. Sonic wants friends. Sonic the Hedgehog is all about opening up and letting people in. There is also a thread about being thankful for where you are in a small town. Do you really need to move to a big town?

The issues families can have with Sonic the Hedgehog is violence, some language, rude humor and more. Sonic the Hedgehog starts a bar fight at one point. He then does wind up finishing off the fight and ending it with his super speed. Why would that even be on your bucket list? Jim Carrey does a fantastic job in Sonic the Hedgehog. Which is good considering how crazy and offensive he has been on social media lately. I was concerned his toxic hater image would hurt this film.

There are numerous bonus features on Sonic the Hedgehog. We get history of the video game character, deleted scenes, bloopers, Building Robotnik with Jim Carrey, and more. Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the few movies that I enjoyed the bonus features. James Marsden also does a great job in Sonic the Hedgehog. I noticed a whole slew of well known actors and actresses in Sonic the Hedgehog. Collateral Damage did not really seem to fit that role though.
