Yes, i've seen Sonic The Hedgehog 2. But i've actually now seen it 2 times. How is this possible? In Australia it premiered last week; on March 31st, and I went on the first day, at 4DX Cinemas, and again, at 4DX cinemas a few days ago, taking a friend along for the ride. Before 2020 COVID shutdowns messed everything up for the next year or so, the last film I went to see in the cinemas was....Sonic The Hedgehog (2020)! Also, at the same 4DX cinema I went to see the 2nd one!
For a start, it's great to be going back to the movies again. I love the cinema. I especially love going to the cinema before school holidays. (Thankfully, they don't start in NSW until the 8th of April) so we got a great dose of fun cinema small crowd in a COVID safe environment.
Okay, so at this point pretty much everybody's seen the first Sonic the Hedgehog Movie right. So I am sure you guys know that Tails is in the new film. He's all over the freaking trailers now and everything so don't get mad at me. But I will try to be as spoiler-free as I possibly can with this review. Or should I say, experience.
Once again, Jim Carrey provides another incredible performance. One of the best i've ever seen. He blew me away! I was very impressed at the evolved Dr. Robotnik. Alongside other live action cast members, such as James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, and of course fan-favourite Lee Majdoub (who returns as Dr. Robotnik's obsessed steamed Latte with Austrian-Goat's milk making personal assistant).
With a 3rd movie officially already in the works (it was announced before the 2nd one came out), and a new Knuckles based TV Series set for Paramount.+ next year, I certainly look forward to further instalments in the Sonic Movie Universe franchise.
