    In summary, this is essentially a quite ordinary film, but with good casting, special effects, and fun humor, so it is definitely worth a recommendation and a must-see for all Jim Carrey fans out there! - Henric Brandt

    "Sonic the Hedgehog" is not a masterpiece, but it's a film that does what it's supposed to do and does it quite well. It entertains, it builds a larger universe, and it gives us a fairly successful video game movie. That alone is an accomplishment. - Louise Gustafsson

    Positiv, no rating

    Jim Carrey offers up a hysterically over-the-top performance as the villain in Jeff Fowler's frenetic adventure, with a blue alien hedgehog at the center.

    There's more pace and dash in the movie than I had expected. The script is also beyond expectation and offers a lot of emotions around being alone and belonging to someone.

    "Sonic the Hedgehog" is possibly not a groundbreaking masterpiece within its genre, but as a Hollywood film based on a video game, it clearly exceeds expectations. - Andreas Samuelson

    The strength of the film is actually one's low expectations, so when it turns out to be a genuinely charming matinee, it's easy to see the golden rings. - Daniel Hånberg Alonso

    Overall, I am very positive about this film. Considering everything it had to go up against, the end result was not as bad as one might have thought. Yes, it's cliched and everything reminds one of an early 2000s film. - Linus Andersen

    Jim Carrey is a good comic effect in a simple story with advanced technology. Not child's play, but not a pulse raiser either, despite the hysterical pace. - Jens Peterson
