    Missed opportunity:
    Cop guy sees Sonic for the first time, is freaked out. Sonic says "Chill out man, I'm just a hedgehog!" Cop guy says "More like a fake hedgehog!"
    Sonic says "I'll make you eat those words!"
    Cop guy: "I'd rather eat at Olive Garden! Because when you're there, you're family!"

      This was a cute movie and my little one who is unfamiliar with the sonic character, loved this movie. It gets a 👍 from me.

          A Metroid movie was planned in the 90s but because of the Mario movie bombing so hard it got cancelled

            I didn't see the movie, but it's strange to hear Chris talk about the product placement as if it failed in trying to be subtle despite the fact that from his description the on-the-nose nature of the advertisement seems like a very intentional wink to the audience

              Sonic and Jim Carry seems to be the best in this, that other lead dude was just there, didn't stand out at all to me, like oh hi you again, who are you?

                The worst product placement was power rangers They literally wrote Krispy Kreme as an actual plot location smh haha

                  Sonic will beat the shit out of Birds of Prey. BOP is woke bullshit on not worth spending money on. I would rather spend my cash on Sonic.

                      I wasnt originally going too see this movie even after they changed the design, but after watching a few reviews expecting it too be a dumpster fire I was shocked too here that it was genuinely good. I was curious after watching these reviews so I decided too watch it. I was still not expecting much but I actually kinda liked it walking out of the theater. Nothing amazing but the amazing thing is that it was one of the few good video game movies too come out that was passable.

                      Mind you this isnt really coming from a sonic fan, I just simply respect the series.

                            I still don't understand why the hedgehog has hair over what presumably are spikes. It is a ridiculously absstract representation to make 'realistic'.

                              It was an enjoyable movie. Had a packed theatre full of kids. They lost it at the fluffy sonic scene.

                                They could have easily gotten a sponsorship with Sonic for some specific new sandwich with onion rings and cleaned up. Ah well, maybe next time.

                                    My two top Game to Film adaptations are:
                                    Sonic the Hedgehog
                                    Silent Hill! (The first one, not 2nd no no)

                                    So wow Chris, I'm surprised you liked this and went pretty easy on it! So far one I've watched was too nit-picky. But yasss I adore this movie, some kids were sitting next to me with their daddy, and they all laughed and everyone laughed in the theater and it pleased me so much, and I too laughed my ass off. There were those really epic moments that I loved too, I cannot wait to get this movie and potentially use it for some videos on my channel!

                                          Metroid WOULD be awesome! Only... I do think they haven't because they KNOW people will riot IF they get it wrong and odds are they will XD

                                            7:30 I'm not American, so I thought "Olive Garden" was a pleasant green plain dotted with loop the loops and small aggressive robot squirrels.

                                            But it's actually a shitty chain restaurant. I had the same awful realisation when I found out what 'Mountain Dew' actually was...

                                                I was happy this film wasn’t a disaster after the initial trailer. Thank God Paramount had enough sense to fix the design. I love your channel FYI. I always look forward to your reviews. Your channel is one of the reasons why I got enough confidence in finally starting my own movie review channel

                                                  Why do I still get the gut feeling that the original sonic design was bad on purpose so that when they release the new one, people won't complain about it

                                                    I work in marketing- I can 100% assure you this was not the case. It takes so much effort and work to make a design in the first place and implementing it into a trailer alone takes weeks. They had posters and merch deals everywhere with the old design and no one in their right mind would trust internet meme culture for free advertising in a multi million dollar project like this. Sonic is already widely known, so it's not like they needed that extra kind of publicity. (The fact that they're working with sonic also means they don't really like making bets, either lol)
                                                    If they wanted to gain that extra goodwill from the audience, they could have made Sonic lack the gloves and have a weird tummy colour and "fixing" that to please the audience, but it had to be a _complete_ redesign because it was just *that* bad. Also shoving a deadline foward in Hollywood like that means hundreds of (international) contracts down the drain, Cinemaposters all over the world that had to be changed, merch deals that had to change, contracts with the animators were reinstated and Cinema's switching due dates for Premieres... it would take waaaay more work than necessary, and no sane company would do that just to make a bet. Lastly, if they wanted to keep the old vs new design meme as a form of publicity, they would 1000% surely have kept the original trailer on youtube. But they threw it on private the second the new trailer came out. I laughed so hard when I saw that cuz it's basically the marketing department admitting their awkward mistake and hoping they could pretend it never happened hahaha

                                                  I feel like it was an introduction to sonic for people who has never played a sonic game, it’s like as if the first game came out after all the other games, sonic wasn’t sonic, I swear every person in the cinema never played a sonic game except for me, I think they should have just followed the games, it was an okay movie for me, I just think it should have been more sonic. I feel like it’s the first game, and maybe the sequel will be more sonic

                                                    This was a surprisingly well done film!

                                                    Very cliche, many logic gaps, and two bad hard edit points, but so, so much fun to watch! James Marsden does a great job as the everyman, Jim Carrey just evil enough to be a bad guy, not scary enough to be too much for a kids film.

                                                    I think there are SEVERAL sequels in the future!

                                                          this film was good, the only real reason I am seeing it is cause they treated the fans right and changed the design and its getting them shit tones of money, they have my respect for doing that and I applaud them, we need to support films like this where the filmmakers go out of there way and delay the film to get it right, sure its not the best thing ever but it did its job and it was a lot of cliche dumb fun

Doesn't have to be a Ripley situation, but something true to life with that little bit of fantasy element.

                                                                        Mgs is definitely top of my list of VG series I want. Movies wouldn't do it justice.

                                                                        Deus ex needs a series. Please.

He can walk into buildings after being on news rabble rabble rabble... Dr. Can blow up highways with government clearance rabble rabble rabble... Its. Also a blue fur ball that can run faster than ever... This Clown sounds dumb complaining about a fictional movie & what in the movie seemed un real to him

                                                                          • Yankee 1147

                                                                            Why I hate because some sick fuck was literally laughing the entire time and just ruined it for everyone was. They called security but since they are teens they didn't do there jobs. So he stayed unfortunately

                                                                            I give it a 8 out of 10

                                                                            Would have be a 9 but a minus 1 because that guy that ruined it for everyone

                                                                            • Jaxon Stephens

                                                                              To everyone saying “It’s just a kids movie” I just have to ask, is Star Wars a kids movie? Should we not criticize Episode 9? Oh, no you’re saying while Episode 9 is meant for children it’s also made for adults, especially those who grew up with the franchise..... that’s sounds a lot like Sonic now doesn’t it? Is Sonic not a kids movie? You see this is all so dumb, where do we draw the line? you can make a good kids movie, you can make a bad kids movie, and if you have to say “it’s just a kids movie” to defend a movie then you’re really only trying to justify why it’s bad rather say why it’s good. It’s a product, you can criticize it.

                                                                                The worst thing about getting older is how we over-analyze everything, we find logic and meaning in things and in the process destroy the wonder we used to see as kids. This movie made me feel like a kid again and that's not always a bad thing. It is not a great movie, but it served its purpose as a movie in that it was made to entertain me, and it did.
