Based on the global blockbuster videogame franchise from Sega, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG tells the story of the world's speediest hedgehog as he embraces his new home on Earth. In this live-action adventure comedy, Sonic and his new best friend Tom (James Marsden) team up to defend the planet from the evil genius Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) and his plans for world domination. The family-friendly film also stars Tika Sumpter and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic.Written by
The movie is the second time a Western company did a redesign of the titular character that was rejected by Sega. The first time was around the development of Sonic Boom, when Big Red Button tried to offer the character and his cast complete redesigns but were rejected by Sega, asking for something closer to the original modern design.

Even if Sonic's electromagnetic pulse didn't knock out cell phones themselves, it would affect the cell towers making them useless. Tom calling Wade during the blackout wouldn't have happened either way. See more »

So, I know what you're thinking: Why is that incredibly handsome hedgehog being chased by a madman with a mustache from the Civil War? Well, to be honest, it feels like I've been running my whole life. Is this too much? Am I going too fast? It's kinda what I do. You know what? Let's back up!

I think they did a good job with this. The design of Sonic so so much better than the one featured in the trailer. It baffles me how they thought the original design was ok. It looked like a child's drawing of something they had seen in a nightmare.
The relationship between Sonic and James Marsden is super cute too and you'd do become invested in it.
It is very much a kids movie but it's nice for older people to see as it's filled with nostalgia from the Sonic games. There are plenty of little Easter eggs that people who have played the game will notice.
This movie is also really charming. It has lines that are funny too.
So I would watch it especially if you have any interest in Sonic I don't think you will be disappointed or frustrated at what they have done with the property.
