wait is over the most entertaining animated movie ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 2’ has been released.
It’s a serious turn of a video game into a movie. We recently saw the much-anticipated release of Uncharted movie released with a lukewarm response. A series that has a cult like Sega’s Sonic, means they have to do it right.
This passion for the character forced the studio to completely revive the character for the first movie when fans rejected his new look (human teeth especially…).
Most Adventures part:
For the second outing, it follows a more traditional flow with Sonic trying to adapt his night work/hero as Blue Justice but also negotiating with his adoptive family Tom and Maddie Wachowski played by James Marsden and Tika Somber. The reality of living with a super ‘sonic’ blue hedgehog isn’t smooth sailing and his adventures do all sorts of unfair damage!
return of Dr. Eggman:
However, with the return of Dr. Eggman played by the charismatic Jim Carrey, comes the return of the fan-favorite character who is a friend/rival of Sonic – Knuckles the Echidna voiced by Idris Elba. This time though, he is going after Mister Emerald which leads to a confrontation with the blue hedgehog! Knuckles isn’t the only familiar face to debut in the series. We now have Tails the Flying Fox lining up at the party as a Super Sonic fan and gadget expert, portrayed here by Colin O’Shaughnessy.
The movie looks a lot more polished this time around than the previous attempt. The animation has seen a step forward that makes you want to see more furry creatures instead of humans!
plus point of this part:
Jim Carrey was one of the biggest pluses on the human roster. His energy and enthusiasm for the role gives each scene a real spark. Watching old Sonic shows as a kid, I can remember Dr. Eggman quite clearly. Carrie’s role goes a long way to bring this character to life. As he did in the first movie. Behaviors are pretty much in his repertoire so it seems like a natural role for him, especially watching his frustrations build up while trying to catch this hedgehog makes him more and more frustrated!
The movie as a whole I thought was a fun way to spend a few hours. She has weak moments and won’t win any awards. However, she is a witch and the voice actors and some human actors bring the game to life in a way that a lot of movies struggle with. If you like video game movies or are a fan of Sonic, I highly recommend giving it a watch. There are not many movies that can check this I have found. So my recommendation is to give it a try!
