After settling in Green Hills, Sonic is ready for more freedom, and Tom and Maddie agree to leave him home while they go on vacation. But, no sooner are they gone, when Dr. Robotnik comes back, this time with a new partner, Knuckles, in search for an emerald that has the power to both build and destroy civilizations. Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails, and together they embark on a journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands. Being directed by Jeff Fowler, and starring Jim Carrey, James Marsden, and Ben Schwartz.Pretty sure I was smiling throughout the majority of the movie! Yes, I’m a Sonic fan, and yes this film delivers for the fans.Sonic the hedgehog 2 builds on the first film; while not an absolute requirement to watch the first film, it will certainly help you to understand references.The film isn’t a cinematic masterpiece by any means, but it is a LOT of fun. It’s a film that doesn’t take itself too seriously (which is fitting for the Sonic franchise) and delivers an action packed adventure, which can be enjoyed by adults and children alike.While the script can be a bit cheesy at times (it is a kids movie after all), I did genuinely find myself laughing out loud at some silly moments.Overall, a good mix of “Sonic adventure” and heart was put into the film.
