Never saw the first one, nor played any of the games - but I still quite enjoyed this animated adventure. "Sonic" is determined to use his powers to be a crime fighting hero, but frequently causes more havoc than the criminals! When the dastardly "Robotnik" manages to escape from his prison in a galaxy far, far, way and returns with the echidna from hell ("Knuckles") though, our blue pal finds himself and his family in considerable peril. Luckily, help is on hand from the twin-tailed "Tails" and battle lines are drawn Who can find the giant emerald first? The story is pretty derivative - bits of "Indiana Jones"; "National Treasure" and even "Guardians of the Galaxy" all seem to have influenced the story, which I have to say is a little predictably thin. That said, it is well placed with plenty in the script for the grown ups amongst the audience. "Sonic" makes for quite a likeable rodent and Jim Carrey"s engagingly hammy, moustachioed, megalomanic works well. The star? Well that's Natasha Rothwell's no-nonsense, would-be bride "Rachel" (a part of the storyline that doesn't work so well, but she is definitely not to be messed with). The visual effects are impressive and though maybe fifteen minutes too long, I still found it very much better than I had expected.

FULL SPOILER-FREE REVIEW @ https://www.msbreviews.com/movie-reviews/sonic-the-hedgehog-2-spoiler-free-review "Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is a vastly superior sequel to the first adaptation. Jeff Fowler works with his screenwriting team to fix some of the issues with the original flick, successfully managing to create a much less corporate work, more focused on Sonic and, this time, also Tails and Knuckles, in addition to putting humans aside in a subplot that, even so, still bothered more than it should. Taking advantage of phenomenal voice acting from the cast, as well as an already iconic performance by Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik, entertainment levels soar tremendously as the action-adventure sequences amaze viewers with praiseworthy animation and visual effects, as well as an engaging main narrative that expands on the origin of the hedgehogs while simultaneously developing the same characters. Fun for kids and adults alike." Rating: B

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 embraces the nostalgia of Sega Genesis and the essence of the 90s with a film that is fun for absolutely everyone of all ages. Audiences will adore the new characters, the action is a memorable throwback to what we loved about the games the films are based on, and the special effects are top notch. Even with its flaws, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is the best video game adaptation ever.

The third time is the charm or, after having been less than thrilled about the last two movies I have watched this one was finally one that I quite enjoyed. When I watched the first Sonic movie with the kids I was quite amused by it. This one I also watched with the kids and I have to say it was some fun two hours. These movies are pure comedies with an aspect of adventure. Make no mistake about, they are silly movies. Then, with Jim Carrey in one of the lead roles that is what anyone that has not lived under a rock in Coyote land would expect. Jim Carrey more often than not grates on me with his overacting and ridiculous behavior but in this movie he is the perfect fit. The movie sets the tone right away when it starts at the mushroom planet, or as Jim Carrey (Dr Robotnik) calls it, the piece of shitake planet, with Dr Robotnik’s coffee making machinery. What follows is one long ride of, mostly, slapstick jokes but still following the red thread of the story. A story which is not really bad and which adds a nice adventure aspect to the movie. The movie even adds some realism, although they probably did not realize that during production, in that the federal agents are just as big a–holes as they have proven themselves to be in real life lately. The grand finale with Dr Robotnik’s huge robot was quite hilarious. I really do not want to spoil things but watch out for that moustache. I’m happy that they refrained from following up that snot laser with a fart laser though. Bottom line, a really fun family adventure movie.

Lol, I can't believe these movies are being made. If you're adapting the Sonic canon into a modern family-action-comedy film, this is kind of the best-case scenario. Much more bonkers than I anticipated, but not always in a good way. Definitely a fun time!

**Sonic 2 is as fun and ridiculous as the first, for better or worse.** Sonic 2 continues the formula that brought its predecessor success the first time with colorful, funny characters that make jokes that every kid will giggle at and a completely unrestrained Jim Carrey in his element and at his best. This time the movie swaps Sonic's human sidekicks for animated characters from the games, with Idris Elba's Knuckles being surprisingly funny (I didn't expect that from the trailers). Just like the first movie, Carrey makes this movie so entertaining. His outrageous performance perfectly fits the role of a kids' video game villain, and his snappy dialogue and quipped one-liners made me laugh at almost every scene he graced. Sonic 2 is not a typical movie I would choose for myself, but I'm not upset when my little daughter chooses to watch it over many other kids' movie options.

Sonic 2 was much more enjoyable for me to watch. The additions of Miles "Tails" Prower and Knuckles were great. Dr. Robotnik's henchman being kind of attracted to Robotnik was... strange. I didn't like that. And that one girl, I think her name was Rachel in the film, is insane. The music was good, the CGI was good, and Knuckles was awesome, funny, and cool (I'm a Knuckles fan, if you couldn't tell). I'm excited to see what they do with Shadow in Sonic the Hedgehog 3!
