| Not a steaming pile of garbage.
Defiantly not a taint in the video game gene, it's family friendly, fasted paced action and has a few laughs to it. Pro's Jim Carrey does in fact play a good Dr. Eggman, Ben Schwartz is a great voice actor for Sonic! Prefer him over Rodger Craig Smith if I'm going to be honest here (Not that Rodger is a bad voice actor but he doesn't make a great Sonic) Sonic's movie design (besides the blue arms) are very cute and lovable, his character personality is very charming and not cringey with no cringe inducing one liners like Sonic Boom had.

P.S Stick around till the end credits of the most of the movie! Best part in my opinion! 🦊

Cons. The owl from the start of the movie. Just stands out from all the rest of the anthropomorphics from Sonic's world, the whole establishment of friendship of Tom and Sonic and the plot from getting to California seems VERY rushed along and feels like a road trip rather than a Sonic Movie. Sonic doesn't have a friend from his world, nobody! Would think it would be quite the opposite instead of everyone trying to go after his power and why IS everyone after Sonic's power in the movie? (Including from what it looks to be the Echidna tribe) Do they just take what they want? Was that established in SA that I'm missing here? Rings used as universe transportation devices? Makes a little sense since they transported Sonic to special stages in Sonic 1, CD, 3 and Mania but are they capable of continuity travel? Kinda urks me a little. There's a little gas humor in the movie, but thankful it only happens once, but still shouldn't have happened at all. The end song "Speed me up" By Wiz Khalifa Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Yachty & Sueco the Child was a massive mistake! Should have gotten someone more talented for a featured end song.

Overall the experience was enjoyable (nothing great) but was fun to watch and doesn't make you want to gouge your eyes out!

I'll give it a solid B- or a 6.9 out of 10.
