Sonic The Hedgehog (2020)

dir. Jeff Fowler. The long run of bad movies based on video games continues, I hope THE LAST OF US movie breaks that pattern. It’s disappointing that from such extra source material like Sonic, they made such a dull fish-out-of-water storyline. It follows the model of E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL (1982) , where audience-stand-in-character discovers an alien and has to help it escape the government, except this time it’s a boring small town cop. The Sonic games are filled with dazzling colorful worlds, original electronic music, this movie takes no advantage of that. The only bright spots are Jim Carrey chewing the scenery.
