Sonic the Hedgehog (2020)



Critic Consensus: Fittingly fleet and frequently fun, Sonic the Hedgehog is a video game-inspired adventure the whole family can enjoy -- and a fine excuse for Jim Carrey to tap into the manic energy that launched his career.

File this one away next to the live-action Alvin and the Chipmunks, the live-action Yogi Bear, and the live-action Rocky and Bullwinkle. It's nothing we haven't seen before.

The world contains many terrible video game movies. This isn't one of them.

The simple storyline finds a way to adapt the games' characters and themes, by adding universal concepts such as friendship to the original games' tension between nature and machines.

Affectionate, charming, and genial.
