Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average The film, with its bright colors and adorable title character, may find favor among the seven-year-old crowd. Older viewers are likely to lose patience with the predictable plot and pointless action sequences before the halfway mark.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Poor "Sonic the Hedgehog" is the worst kind of bad movie: it's too inoffensive to be hated and too wretched to be enjoyable. ...a bad action-adventure, video game adaptation, and buddy comedy. It feels almost completely impersonal...

USA Today Full Review
Average The film is fine, familiar fare for gamers and children: Sonic sprints, Carrey mugs, but the creative juices run out quickly. ...though there are some eye-popping sequences with him doing his speed-demon thing, especially a chase between Sonic and Robotnik...

NY Post Full Review
Good Carrey is back in peak comedic form playing the villainous Dr. Robotnik in "Sonic the Hedgehog," a pleasant new family film... If the title makes you wince, know the movie is a lot better than it deserves to be. You'll actually care about what happens to the prickly blue dude...

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 32 moviegoers:
CHILDREN: Nearly all the kids truly loved "Sonic the Hedgehog."
TEENS: The lone male willing to give a review, loved this movie. The lone female didn't enjoy it all that much rating it only "good/average."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The one male loved it, as did the one female.
ADULTS: Two males loved it and one enjoyed it very much. Of the 11 females (I'm guessing mothers bringing their children), Just over 50% indicated that they loved this kids movie, with another30% rating it "Very Good," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. Only 20% rated it as low as "Good/Average, which isn't a low review coming from adult females seeing a kids video game movie.
