I've been working on my own sonic movie for a while myself ya know.
I would love for my sonic OC to be included into the next film in the series.
Her name is gypsy and she's an elementalist pangolin who came from the future to save us from the wrath of mother nature. I'm thinking of having her have a character arc about self discover and empowerment but with a little bit of a dark past that gets thrown into the mix.
When she discovers that her parents are part of an evil time bending cult that wants to return earth to a primordial state she sets out from her comfortable life to join up with sonic and the gang to save the new home she discovers upon her time on earth. I think it will be a great tale that a lot of people can relate to.

Good movie and funny.
Classic Jim Carey - over acting and he's just not funny anymore.
My kids loved it though.

Video game based movies get a bad wrap from us fans as they are often made as cash grabs and made with lukewarm enthusiasm.
Sonic is a rare exception as I could tell it was made by everyone involved with a great deal of love and respect to the Sega character.
This movie is a lot of fun and just might actually be my personal favorite video game movie ever made. Definitely check it out, and be sure to watch till after the main credits at the end for an incredible tease at a sequel.

Much better than expected! After the nightmare-fuel of the original sonic design, Sega and paramount redesigned the character to actually look like Sonic. Jim Carrey as Robotnik is the highlight of the movie.

This movie totally surpassed my expectations. After the monstrous, hideous design by SEGA staff, this film turned out great. Love what Jim Carrey and Ben Schwartz did to contribute to this movie. I first saw it in theaters and the end credits give Sonic fans a great dose of nostalgia. My younger brother like Tails' cameo in the end. As a player of the original and new Sonic games, this film was a great one.I highly recommend this film to all Sonic fans.

This movie exceeded my expectations. It was hilarious and sweet and you really fall in love with Sonic, who has you in fits of laughter and really makes you smile. I do think that the star of this movie would be Jim Carrey, who brings his quirky and full of life personality to the screen through the character of Dr Robotnik, a lovable childhood character.

This was a very fun, good-natured movie. Multiple laugh out loud moments and a nice story to carry things along. The Sonic I remember from the games and cartoons had a little more toe-tapping attitude, but I think this slightly-less-smart-talkin' Sonic works better for a full-length movie. Jim Carrey was pretty fun. Kids will definitely dig it. Extremely sophisticated and discerning adults will too.

While not one for the ages, this was a fun family flick. My kids and I laughed a lot.

This is probably the best Video Game to Movie in ever created. Kids enjoyed it. There was something funny for parents.

The only thing is Sonic is no longer an animal savior as he is an alien teenager in a new world trying to fit in. In the games, he would try to save animals, in the movie he was just lonely and wanted friends and family.

Either way, the movie is a joy and Jim Carrey's appearance and performance as Dr. Robotnik is great!
