All you retro gamers can calm down.
The Sonic movie was pretty darn good. There were even subtle references to video game movies that were big during Sonic's popularity boom. In the classically cheesy Street Fighter film none of the characters looked like their video game counterparts until the end of the film, and that was my favorite homage during this film. The movie will give you the "feels" though, so if you cry easily watch it alone. Sonic's re-design was spot on, but the supporting characters reminded me of the humans in the Transformers cartoons. Kinda weird when the people seem fake, but the cartoon hedgehog seemed the most human. Jim Carrey played a more understandable antagonist that I can totally relate to, and for once he was not a show stealer. Both character backstories reminded me of that anti-social vibe that I loved about the first Frozen film, and what else more can I say? Damn good movie!
