      Well HELLO THERE!!😁😁😁

    2. Gilles Thibault

      The presence of the absolutely untolerable and untalented Jim Carrey disqualifies this movie from the start!

    3. Robert Pirlot

      Loved this movie. ;) and they brought Tails in the end.

    4. brandowag3

      Yeah. 00.00000000000000000000000000000000

      I like going to the movies early because usually people dont show up early. I went to see sonic 1st showing early in the morning and there was a line. Good thing I bought my ticket the night before. And the movie was really fun. 8ish out of 10.

    6. Gregory Valiant

      The beautiful wife is nice and her sister is hilarious!!! and of course Jojo gave Sonic a new pair of shoes

    7. Gregory Valiant

      Yes dozens and dozens and dozens of teens and 20 something the same happened to me when I went to see the movie and the theater was PACKED!!!

    8. Daniel T.

      I'd give it 8 out of 10. And that score is better than "not half bad".

    9. Isaac Wale

      I loved it

    10. Captain Cat

      I liked it. For a Video Game movie, it could have been worse, and I think the directors tried their best.

    11. AB

      Ironically, this kids movie is primarily for adult fans of the character, and it's pretty fun if you're one of them.

    12. Zech Merquise

      I heard there are post credit scenes!!! Can’t wait to see it

    13. β€’ Starr β€’

      the post credit sceneeee 🀭

    14. Ibrahim Dheel

      JOJO!! wait this isn't Jojo

    15. Hyped-Up-GameBoy

      This movie is officially to me the best video game movie EVER. PERIOD. No bar. No bullshit this movie has set a new bar for how good video game movies can be. It's not perfect but it's FAR from terrible.

    16. Terry Greene

      I wish and hope the bluray has the original and remixed version of sonic for bluray i can see it now the blurays are painted on golden rings around each disc Alot of potential for bonus features and including the original un remixed cut.

    17. Felicity Halsey

      They made him look very cute and fun. They paid extra money to redo his cgi but it was worth it. This movie will make a lot of money.

    18. Andrew Akiyama

      You forgot the animated Sonic Movie as well as the other two animated shows, Sonic X and Sonic Boom.

    19. Charles Francis

      Wait......wait.........wait..........Sonic is fast, right? Right??? We're talkin' Quicksilver/The Flash fast, right? So this little guy CAN'T run to San Francisco to find his lost rings OR run up a freakin' bldg??? Really?? REALLY???

    20. Stevie G

      The first sonic game came out in 91. He's probably a bigger deal to people in their 40's than 20's. You are kind of acting like those people don't exist.

      1. CORY MILLARD

        yeah im 44 and im gonna go see it sometime this month.

    21. vh9network

      I saw it today, it was good. Paramount really dodged a bullet with redesigning it. I guarantee this movie would have bombed so hard if they hadn't. The characters both human and CG are likeable and pleasant to look at is the impression I got a lot watching it, and I realize this would have been lost if the old ugly Sonic was used instead.

    22. D Jordan

      Watched it today and going Thursday again O.O

    23. Thesightofpeace97 0

      Them redoing Sonic's design alone got me to go watch this movie.

    24. RG7621

      I'm 35 and saw the movie today. Great film 10/10

    25. scupking

      This movie was great. Nothing I would change about it. I personally would give it a 9 out of 10.

    26. StrayGamer

      Loved it. So many little nods and easter eggs to the fans. Some genuine LOL moments. Can’t wait for the sequel!

    27. iwasanangryyoungman

      Yay!!! A video game movie that DOESN'T suck!!! Who'd have thunk that??!

    28. I.

      Great video. Tika Sumpter is gorgeous πŸ’•

    29. Brian Knapp

      I'm glad that Jeff Fowler (and Paramount) were smart enough to listen to their audience and change the look of Sonic (regardless of the expense.) _I wonder if the "leaked trailer" was deliberate...._ Giving the wrong look to this iconic character would have doomed this movie from the start- despite Jim Carrey's return to comic form.

    30. Joseph Palmquist

      Tika Sumpter is a terrible actor She should be a model. Not an actor. She knows nothing about acting its horrendous watching her try

    31. Kingdevilblade The king

      Liked the post credit scene

    32. E1ite Yoshi

      I think it’s an 8/10.

    33. Jackie Brown

      I loved it. Sonic is so damn cute and it was really funny. ❀️

    34. Daniele Mulas

      Other than a Star Wars fan, I'm also a huge Sonic fan. And sadly, the past 10 years for the series had not been good at all. Shitty storytelling that tries way too hard to be self-referential, boring gameplay, nostalgia pandering up the arse (just like Star Wars if not worse). And I was actually one of those who had no hope in this movie. But after seeing it.....I actually think it was harmless and decent. While there are a few REALLY cringeworthy jokes (the Sanic drawing, Sonic doing the floss dance), the movie itself was actually....solid. Sonic was, for the first time in years, LIKABLE and relatable again. A high energy kid who loves life, with a good heart and longs to make friends, who is both adrenalinic and vulnerable at the same time. And THANK GOD they got Ben Schwartz, he makes Sonic sound like an actual teen again (unlike Roger Craig Smith in the games). His chemistry with Tom worked really well. Jimm Carrey as Robotnik/Eggman was....okay, at least Dr Eggman is FINALLY being taken seriously once again. My only other gripe would be that it felt too short, and some scenes could have used more screentime. But still, this could potentially lead to an actually good cinematic series, IF they keep treating the characters with respect, and if they adapt the best part of the lore (Angel Island, the Master Emerald, Knuckles, the Knuckles tribe, Chaos, Space Colony Ark, Gerald and Maria Robotnik, Shadow). Hell, bring in some of Crush 40's awesome songs from the games as well !!! Some things need a bit more ironing out, but as a starter, it was actually solid.

    35. Mr.Joshua Skywalker

      I really enjoyed! Plus the end credit scene is marvel worthy

    36. sausagesausage

      Loved this film! Go see it :)

    37. Daniel Ayy

      So, πŸ‘ or πŸ‘Ž?

    38. A Lovely Day

      Gonna see it today, sometimes I wonder if this positive reception is more because of the redesign than the movie actually being good.

    39. T. Murph.

      I thought it was a brilliant film, i loved every moment of it, its well worth a watch.

    40. DeltaAssaultGaming

      Sonic better then Edge of Tomorrow confirmed

      1. wadde faq

        For me, edge of tommorow is another level. But sonic is better than pokemon (ryan reynolds)

    41. Michael Brent

      Gargoyles,Captain Planet and Freakaziod need Movie!

    42. Ang3L of CrΞ›zY

      *4 cartoon series, not one

    43. PaulNat360

      in terms of video game-based movies, Sonic turned out to be way better than the Mario Brothers film, which was released in the early 1990s

    44. MrCalverino

      19, 65, 9, 17 1,9,9,2,1,1,2,4 4,1,2,6

    45. F1rsttime_online

      No spoilers, but when they showed *that drawing* , I knew the movie was in good hands.

      1. Tails [sonic movie]

        Sanic

      2. Richard Williams

        Sanic?

    46. 100 CENTAGE

      Uh spoiler alert

    47. F1rsttime_online

      It was so much better than expected. Not on the level of Pikachu but in the same building. Also, remember that SEGA made a Sonic movie before Nintendo made a Mario movie.

      1. Stranger who is a CPA, CFA, & EMBA

        F1rsttime_online I enjoyed this more than Detective Pikachu to be honest. I was disappointed they missed the opportunity to include β€œescape the city” when sonic is running from Dr Robotnik after saving Thom and his wife. Would have been a perfect time to include the song. Good thing about Detective Pikachu is the definitely did not miss that moment with the soundtrack. (What DP had was a lot more PokΓ©mon in comparison to just one spiky boi!)

    48. Jazz Jackrabbit

      Just saw it and it was good. As a big Sonic fan, it did not disappoint.

      1. PotBoyz

        Jazz Jackrabbit yes I wish this and detective pikachu sequels would hurry up

      2. Jazz Jackrabbit

        @PotBoyz Yes. I want to see sequels!

      3. PotBoyz

        Especially the ending

    49. MrFlipperInvader792

      2:07 wasnt that expensive

      1. Max Axe

        You 'have no idea'

    50. highlycaffeinatedmovies_podcast

      Will probably check it out once it's streaming.. am I the only one thinking this will bomb??

    51. Stephanie Oliver

      Loved it!

    52. The Shadow Man

      Sounds good. Why was the honking movie hotties website taken down ?

    53. Von Sowards

      Sonic sure is a crazy franchise that has gone in so many direction! ussel.info/video/video/tKqchHmsmo-LZmg.html

    54. Frank LoTurco

      When you showed the old sonic revision on the screen I physically recoiled. I thought I'd never feel that experience of absolute disgust and dread again but Jesus.

    55. I'm a nobody 79

      7/10? That's actually pretty solid for a Sonic movie

      1. ZairTheHedgehog

        I'm a nobody 79 Bless Carl. Lol

    56. Steve Sonny

      Sonic better than Birds of Prey, who would have guessed it. πŸ˜…

      1. danielangel vega

        AMD to think, the reshoots they did for Turds of Prey vs what redesigned Sonic , Sonic pleased it audiences, while Turds of Prey was 2 hrs of Nanny Fine talking πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ€£πŸ€”πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ€£

      2. Walter Plinge

        @Manta005 Makes you wonder why the critics and woke twittertards started comparing them, huh?

      3. Daniele Mulas

        Sonic games actually used to have movie-material for stories. Look at Sonic Adventure or Adventure 2. Both were really good games had cool stories.

      4. Manta005

        Wow they are not even in the same category.

      5. Raccoon Hours

        bird of prey is suicide squad 2...edgy yet cringey

    57. Daniel Yerke

      I loved it! I thought Jim Carey was really funny.

    58. samdiego

      Good art?

    59. Zipzeolocke

      Don't you understand Sonic fans are mostly in their 30s and 20s because they were kids who played sonic during the 90s and early 2000's. kids back then are obviously adults now who are feeling nostalgic for one of their childhood mascots. They thought it was unfair Mario got a live-action movie but sonic didn't until now

    60. Rodrigo Nogueira Mota

      happy to see a movie that seemed to be doomed from the start turned to be a good solid movie. Carey is for sure the perfect Robotnik...
