The Sonic the Hedgehog series has now been made into a full blown movie. The story and characters are so iconic, that you cannot help but laugh with the big red haired character throughout the entire movie.
The movie itself begins with Dr. Robotnik setting up a master plan to rule over the world. The first step is to recruit Tails, a robotic cat who has been kidnapped by Sonic and is kept under the Robotnik Corporation's control. As the plot progresses, a mysterious character known as Shadow appears and his goal is to stop Dr. Robotnik and Dr. Eggman from destroying all life on Earth. He also joins forces with Eggman's evil Dr. Ivo Robotnik to create a second planetoid to replace the first, but Sonic's father, King Leo, uses this to gain control of the planetoid's control panel and blocks it from ever being used.
The movie is a story filled with laughter, humor, and surprises. With the exception of the ending scene, it was actually a very fast paced action packed movie.
The overall plot is such that the movie could be viewed as one long scene with scenes leading up to the final one. From my experience watching the movie, it looked so fun. The story had so much variety of action and different twists and turns that it made me almost laugh out loud in the movie. I even did a little bit of slow-motion, though I must say that I am not the greatest at it.
Overall, I think the story of the movie is better than some other Sci-Fi Characters and Story arcs. I would recommend this movie to any fan of the series. I think that they really did the best job they could to portray the tone and the excitement of the games.
The movie should not have any problems with its score either. I would definitely put it above average if the musical score wasn't way too repetitive.
The voice acting is top notch and well done. There is a lot of fun to be had listening to the character Sonic sound every which way he can. I have to say that I really enjoyed the action scene between Sonic and Shadow. I found the voice acting too hilarious and entertaining.
Overall, the movie is quite good. If you are a fan of the series, you are sure to enjoy this movie, if not, you will most likely still find something to like.
