Sonic the Hedgehog is designed for fans – no wonder movie critics hated it

Video game movies get bad reviews but are working to different criteria from other filmsFrom the moment the Paramount ident appeared on the screen with Sonic’s trademark gold rings replacing the usual stars, I knew this movie was for me. Taking my sons to see Sonic the Hedgehog last night, I was aware of the film’s less than effusive reviews, but we are fans of the games, and my boys have grown up watching cartoons such as Sonic Underground and Sonic X, so let’s just say we knew what we were get...

How Internet Backlash Helped ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Avoid Box Office Disaster

It’s not a stretch to say Universal’s “Cats” and Paramount’s “Sonic the Hedgehog” had two of the most polarizing movie trailers in recent memory. Both caught fire online for all the wrong reasons after fans on social media torched the questionable CGI. “Cats,” an adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical, used a new science called […]

Sonic the Hedgehog Had the Best Domestic Opening of Any Video Game Movie Ever

It used to be conventional wisdom that video game movies were not a way to walk the path to success. Warcraft, Assassin’s Creed, and a whole pile of bizarre failed ‘90s game adaptations tell the tale of a film niche that was better left alone. But that may be changing, and Sonic the Hedgehog might be the harbinger. Read more...

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Review: An Exhausting Video Game Adaptation With an Identity Crisis

Who is Sonic the Hedgehog for? What is the target audience for a film that wants to take its cues from Deadpool but also family films about the Easter Bunny? Ostensibly, children should want very badly to see this movie adaptation of the long-running Sega video game about an extremely fast blue animal. But Sonic the Hedgehog can’t figure out if its audience is the parents of those children — those of us who grew up with the first iteration of Sonic — or kids themselves. The result is...

Super Sonic: creating the new sound of Sega's hedgehog hit

J-pop veteran Masato Nakamura’s soundtrack for the original Sonic game was an instant classic. Tom Holkenborg on reimagining that bold music for the big-budget film versionIf you’re a video game player of a certain age, the words Green Hill Zone will immediately bring to mind not only a certain blue spiky hero but also the sound of bright, crisp, high-tempo synth chords and a drum-machine beat. The music to Sonic the Hedgehog, composed by J-pop veteran Masato Nakamura, encapsulated the look and ...

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’: Film Review

For all the kerfuffle that erupted in the spring of 2019 over the visual design of Sonic the Hedgehog, the blue-furred speed-demon mascot of the Sega video game–turned–live-action kiddie adventure, you wish that the creators of “Sonic the Hedgehog,” who went back and redesigned the character after being pressured (I almost wrote bullied) by his […]

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Featurette: Zany Jim Carrey from the ’90s Is Back as Dr. Robotnik

Jim Carrey had a meteoric rise to fame in the 1990s thanks to a string of comedy hits like Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask, and Dumb & Dumber, not to mention a campy villainous turn as The Riddler in Batman Forever, all in the span of a year and a half. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Jim Carrey get that silly, but as a new Sonic the Hedgehog featurette shows us, that changes this weekend. Sonic the Hedgehog, based on the Sega video game of the same name, brings in Jim Carrey to pla...

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Clip and Super Bowl Spot: Jim Carrey and the Blue Speedster Ham It Up

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Clip: James Marsden is Being a Really Good Sport About All This

One would have thought that after starring in the Easter-themed family comedy Hop, James Marsden would be done acting opposite entirely computer generated characters. But maybe the paycheck for a big blockbuster family film is just too good to pass up nowadays, because he’s back starring in Sonic the Hedgehog and a silly new clip has just debuted. Thankfully, this isn’t as horrifying as it could have been thanks to the character redesign that pushed the movie back from November last year…but it...
