Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Review: 1 star
The video game developed by the Japanese company Sega and released in 1991 did well in the action adventure comedy format in 2020. However, a film about an anthropomorphic hedgehog with superpowers cannot be a gift that he constantly gives.
So right from the start, a blue ball of fur that has too many abilities for a guy who is so small and who is so eagerly looking for his guardians to go on a trip will barely catch a couple.
Carrey appears as Robotnik, formerly known as Eggman, and again does not prevent his character from being as strange as possible to fitting into the general all-round tone of absurdity. However, the film never goes too far from its heroic hedgehog Sonic (Schwartz) or for too long. Despite all the flying Sonic does with his new-found friend Tails, all the throttle scenes, and all the things that are scattered, the story barely stretches.
They all go for a “great emerald” that can provide strength and intergalactic control. Robotnik has another anthropomorphic miracle called Knuckles (Elba). That means double screams and explosions. It also means half the need for any real plot development.
