Movie Review – Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Read Time:1 Minute, 41 Second


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.

Grade: B

About The Peetimes: I would recommend the third, and last, Peetime. The last hour of the movie is jam-packed with action and antics.

There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

    Hey! I am a older guy and I took my wife to see this as we really liked the first one when we streamed it. I saw her laughing a few times and I though Jim did a great job, I mean he looked like the game and had some great parts and funny action. I thought it was better then the first one as in this one there is a few thing I am sure people missed that was very good references of this time. The one line about good people was a nice one. I hope this is not his last one as I do like his over the top acting as that is what he does best, and there are rare actors anymore who can take a game character and make it into a real life person

  2. Agreed. I thought Carrey’s “Good people on both sides” was a good jab. And this role as Dr. Robotnik is the perfect vehicle for Carrey. I hope he comes back, but he talks like this is it for him.

  3. I wonder if adult fans of Sonic would enjoy this, spreading the reach beyond children. I haven’t ever seen a single Sonic thing, so that audience is not me. But nostalgia is big at the moment. We’re all troubled with these times, and looking back seems simpler and more carefree.

  4. Good question. I’ve seen people play Sonic, but never played myself.

    >We’re all troubled with these times, and looking back seems simpler and more carefree.

    There was a time that was simpler and more carefree? I thought it was crap all the way down. 🙂
