At least Jim Carrey looks like he's having a blast playing Eggman. So even if the movie is a piece of hot garbage even after Sonic's redesign, he could be the one saving grace, like how M. Bison was in the Street Fighter movie.
Jim Carrey turned down an offer to play Dr. Evil in Austin Powers, and I feel his portrayal of Robotnik is like it would have been if he'd played Dr. Evil (except his Robotnik is clearly a lot more competent than Dr. Evil). He also reminds me a bit of Judge Doom from Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
I've been thinking about all the posts that say fans should see the movie just because the studio listened to fans. So far it's made 55 million dollars (though the budget was 95 dollars), maybe it's success will lead to more studios listening to fans in the same way (who wants to complain that any uninteresting non-franchise Disney films are not Muppet movies so we'll get another?).
Sonic keeps dreading his need to go to a mushroom planet. I wonder if that was meant as a subtle reference/slam to Mario.
I went to see this movie a couple weeks ago and I was actually quite impressed! One of my favorite bits from that movie was easily the bar fight in slow motion. Jim Carey as Doctor Eggman was great!
(I also got a lot of joy from hearing Colleen O’Shaughnessy reprise her role as Tails as someone who loves her voice over work in some of my favorite English dubs for anime like Naruto and Bleach, as well as western cartoons like Danny Phantom, even if it was brief. Hollywood life unfortunately).
Apparently next movie will really introduce Tails, and also Super Sonic, according to the movies director. They wanted Super Sonic for this one, and he was actually in early versions of the script but they wanted this to be an origin story. Tails and Super Sonic didn't come til Sonic 2 anyway
I loved the movie very much! The redesign of Sonic was a BIG improvement over the original!
Loved Sonic playing baseball and causing a power outage, as well as Jim Carrey as Robotnik! (Even though I originally thought that he wasn't going to be that good in it)
Overall it was fun to watch!
