 Sonic the Hedgehog is directed by Jeff Fowler and stars James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, Tika Sumpter, and Jim Carrey. The plot of the movie is after discovering a small, blue, fast hedgehog, a small-town police officer must help it defeat an evil genius who wants to do experiments on it.  I did not grow up playing any of the Sonic games and knew very little about the character. Plus the trailers for this movie looked awful, so I was not looking forward to watching this movie.    This movie is a lot better than I thought. It's not going to end up being one of my favorites of the year, but I had fun watching it. I think this is actually a really fun adventure move. It will definitely please kids. I think fans of the game will be happy and if you are an adult who is dragged to this you won't be completely bored.  Based on the trailers the main thing I was not looking forward to in this movie was Jim Carrey. He is nowhere near as annoying as I thought he was going to be. Every time he tried to be funny I did roll my eyes because it was lame, but he is very entertaining other than that.  Ben Schwartz voices Sonic, and he is perfect for this character. He's got that fun playful nature to him. He has a lot of funny lines and I loved his relationship with James Marsden's character. I bought their friendship, and they made for a fun pair. A lot of the action sequences in the movie are a lot of fun. They are well filmed and the special effects are great.    This movie does have some pretty big flaws for the first 30 minutes of this movie I was completely bored. Every time Jim Carrey tried to be funny it was embarrassing. Also, the movie is very predictable. It's very easy to tell where it is going to go and why it needs to go there.  3 out of 5 stars for Sonic the Hedgehog. I hope you enjoyed my review.
