I can’t believe it. We have finally reached a time where video game movies are great!
What, with Detective Pikachu last year, and Sonic this year, and the likelihood of more movies from these and other franchises, we could be gearing up for a new war, but on a bigger screen now; a war reminiscent of the classic clash of the SNES and Genesis, when gaming was incredible for both companies, and video game movies were despicable.
And yes, I am saying the Sonic movie is actually quite good. It has jokes for all ages, and is really quite funny at times. The characters are all likeable, Jim Carey brings his classic acting back, and there are a few nice, and very subtle nods to various Sonic games.
I personally could have done with some more action, but it’s not really an action movie, so I guess it’s not what they were going for.
I highly recommend seeing it whether you are a Sonic fan or not. It’s good ol’ family fun!
I am excited to see if Nintendo and Sega will really try to outdo each other. We’ll have to see what the supposed Mario movie in the works has to offer!
