Storyline

Sonic the Hedgehog and his sidekicks Tails and Knuckles the Echidna are determined to thwart a plan that would turn their Land of the Sky into the equivalent of The Land of Darkness, which lurks beneath the surface (and is obviously the former planet Earth). So they plow through to the center of the planet and the ancient city of Robotropolis (the former New York City?) to do righteous battle. The big question of the day is whether the usually evil Dr. Robotnik is telling the truth for once or sending the good guys into a trap. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Not half bad, if you ask me.
1 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

This is a pretty good film if you ask me. Personally, I rather the guy who did this dub do the dub for Sonic X then 4toture.

This is at least 95% actuate to the original Japanese. I only said 95 because of some edits I read on Wiki(which, unlike 4Toture, were understandable if they planned for younger viewers to see it) and some of the names changed, which, in my opinion, were for the best to make it dark.

style: Since I adored 2D animation, this is pretty snazzy if you ask me.

story: It's pretty good, though it could been longer.

voices: The main reason I rate this an 8 instead of something higher. While Knuckles', Sera's, Metal's, Robotnic's and Old Owl's were good and sonic's was decent but a bit off at times,the rest could had been a lot better. But, that was a minor setback and they were a lot better compared to the 4baka's cast.

So, if your like me and like dubs that are done well, I reckoned this, but the Japanese version for those who hate dubs with a burning passion, no matter how little the cuts are. Also recommended by fans of the blue hedgehog, of course. Other then that, it's whatever you like or not it's up to you.
