‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ reviews: After its CGI makeover, is it a ‘complete delight’ or ‘forgettable’?
The power of visual effects: CGI characters in movie trailers launched memes and drew ridicule last year in both “Cats” and “Sonic the Hedgehog.” The latter, inspired by the video game of the same name, was delayed in order to revise its title character’s design, but it finally opened on Friday, February 14. So what do critics think of the finished product?

Well, compared to “Cats” it’s a resounding success, though that doesn’t mean it’s a critics’ darling. As of this writing it has a MetaCritic score of 47 based on 35 reviews counted thus far: 13 positive, 15 somewhat mixed, and 7 outright negative. That’s not such a bad spread considering that video game movies are often considered outright failures. Over on Rotten Tomatoes, the film actually has a positive freshness rating of 65% based on 99 reviews counted, 35 of which give it a thumbs down.
