The Sega video game franchise Sonic the Hedgehog returns with a second instalment two years after the release of the original film, which broke the record for the highest-grossing video game movie. As a continuation of Sonic the Hedgehog (Ben Schwartz’s character from the previous film), Sonic the Hedgehog 2 chronicles the story of Sonic, who has now relocated to Green Hills and must prove to himself that he has what it takes to be a true superhero. In this film, Sonic the Hedgehog is tested when Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) returns with a new ally, Knuckles (Idris Elba), in order to search for a mystical emerald that has the potential to destroy civilization. Sonic must work together with Knuckles to find the emerald first before it is taken by the wrong people.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will be directed by Jeff Fowler, who will also serve as producer. Pat Casey and Josh Miller will also be back to compose the script for the film. Ben Schwartz, James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, and Jim Carrey, as well as other cast members from the original film, return for the second installment. Natasha Rothwell, Shemar Moore, and Idris Elba as the voice of Knuckles are some of the newcomers to the picture, which also includes some familiar faces.

Sonic The Hedgehog review
A terrible movie that is both too inoffensive to be despised and too awful to be enjoyed, “Sonic the Hedgehog” falls into the worst category. Maybe the lengthy and well-publicized last-minute animation overhaul that transformed the titular woodland creature Sonic (voiced by Ben Schwartz) into a more recognizable version of Sega’s famous video game character has anything to do with the film’s dismal limbo. This is incorrect: “Sonic the Hedgehog” is rotten because it, like far too many other recent blockbusters, appears to have been produced by an imaginatively bankrupt creative committee that had more ideas for jokes than they had actual jokes to tell, and more cookie-cutter, place-holder dialogue about the power of friendship than it did or could say about that boilerplate quality.
In terms of action-adventure, video game adaption, and buddy humor, “Sonic the Hedgehog” fails miserably. There are only a few instances in which James Marsden, who plays Sonic’s human friend, attempts to redeem the film by remaining confident and graceful in the face of an otherwise terrible kiddy fantasy in which the magical creature is sent back to its home. I hope that everyone who was engaged in the production of this film was fairly compensated and received their payments on time. The movie “Sonic the Hedgehog” has no other reason to be seen, especially since that easily defeated parents may park their children in front of a computer or television and allow them to watch some “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” gameplay footage on YouTube. Believe me when I say that your children’s happiness is not contingent on them seeing this movie.
Even so, if you really must take your children to see “Sonic the Hedgehog,” there are a few things you should be aware of. To beginners, this is a clone of “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial,” which is a horribly uninteresting film. Sonic, a magical critter with superhuman speed, teams up with nice guy/small-town cop Tom Wachowski (James Marsden) in order to reclaim the whatsit—in this case, a pouch of gold rings that open portals to any destination Sonic can imagine—that will allow him to escape from goony mad scientist Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey), who wants to dissect Sonic and use his organs. The result is a cross-country road trip from the fictional Green Hills to San Francisco, because that is the city on Tom’s shirt when he shoots Sonic with a bear tranquilizer while in a panic, and then Sonic is stunned by powerful wildlife drugs when he accidentally throws his rings onto a Golden City roof. Moreover, given Tom’s wholly original desire of gaining prominence and excitement outside of his tiny hometown, San Francisco happens to be the location to which he wishes to relocate.
But, in all seriousness, the setup for “Sonic the Hedgehog” is dependent on a bear tranq and some unfortunate timing. Dr. Robotnik, the film’s hammy antagonist who enjoys yelling about how much smarter and more powerful he is as compared to everyone else, provides the rest of the film’s non-existent sense of urgency throughout the remainder of the film. A flimsy waxed mustache that looks like one of those party favors that every third wedding guest wears in your Facebook friends’ wedding reception photos is what Dr. Robotnik wears as he commands expensive-looking robot drones under his command. Dr. Robotnik isn’t really interesting, but he appears in the “Sonic” video games, therefore he appears in this film as well.
In addition, there are some uninteresting stranger-in-a-foreign-land hijinks concerning Sonic’s bucket list, which includes items such as “tame a wild animal,” “create a bar fight,” and “become a best friend,” among other things. Sonic’s bucket list can be found on the official website. If your child had a little more attention and motivation, he or she could certainly come up with a better scenario. Unfortunately, these are two attributes that the creators of “Sonic the Hedgehog” appear to lack.
While I don’t want to be unduly critical, I believe that “Sonic the Hedgehog” does not need to exist based on the movie I saw. With his reactions to an artificially intelligent figure whose only distinguishing trait is his likeness to a well-known video game character who was never particularly remarkable in his own right, Marsden accomplishes a great deal of heavy lifting. Although Marsden is excellent, he is unable to save this film from a downpour of unimaginative chase scenes, implausible story twists, and disposable pop culture references (wow, he’s doing the floss dance again, amazing). To be honest, the success of “Sonic the Hedgehog” is dependent on how much time you want to spend watching its animated protagonist go on instantly forgettable escapades. And boy is that a terrible fact of life.
Attempt to watch the trailer for “Sonic the Hedgehog” and see how much of Jim Carrey’s violently joyless portrayal you can handle before deciding whether or not to watch the film. In a similar fashion to Marsden, Carrey puts in a lot of effort on the stage, but unlike his co-star, Carrey is never as engaging as he is animated. As a result, witnessing Carrey in “Sonic the Hedgehog” is akin to watching an inebriated person attempt to revive a party that was already dead when he arrived. Unfortunately, Carrey’s arduous efforts only serve to exacerbate the situation. Because everything in “Sonic the Hedgehog,” even the wonderful stuff, is ultimately gloomy, I’m not sure if the game was ever truly recoverable.
