Fun, fast-paced movie filled with heart and humour.
Overall - Had lots of laughs at the cinema with a friend. But don't go in with high expectations.
Having just watched Sonic, I can say that it was an enjoyable movie. Many of the elements that make up the movie has been seen before but the movie executes them well enough for them to be justified and certainly funny.
Standout from the cast is Jim Carrey, who steals the show, especially in one scene in which he is experimenting with something that belongs to Sonic.
Visual Effects and Sonic himself could have done with a little more polish but its adequate.
