I’m giving this movie a B, not because I really enjoyed it but because I think it appeals to the target audience: 6-10-year-old kids.
The voice acting by Ben Schwartz as Sonic, Idris Elba as Knuckles, and Colleen O’Shaughnessey as Tails was great. That in combination with simple, but well-done animated expressions brought the three main characters to life. Honestly, their acting was better than the live actors.
The story carries a simple message about leadership and friendship that is easy enough for young kids to understand—teammates who work together can always defeat selfishness.
There are a handful of jokes that only adults are likely to understand, mostly from Dr. Robotnik’s dialog, that is worth a few chuckles. Jim Carrey has announced that he’s retiring from acting, so this might be your last chance to see him in a new movie. Frankly, he deserves a better final act, but this is what we have.
About The Peetimes: I would recommend the third, and last, Peetime. The last hour of the movie is jam-packed with action and antics.
