Sonic the Hedgehog ★★★

[Watch my video review here]

A solid kid’s film with a good heart and a handful of minutes of genuinely great action. Also, Jim Carrey is in full Ace Ventura mode and if you’re into that sort of thing (I am), you’ll have a blast.

Side note: this movie imagines Sonic as a nomadic super-creature whose powers are so desirable that he must keep moving from planet to planet lest he be captured and his loved ones exterminated. In other words, I will never play those games the same way again.
