With the introduction and all exhibits of two striking new characters, not just one needed to establish a Master Emerald, sonic the hedgehog 2 It’s a bigger movie than before in many ways. This includes running times of just over two hours if the previous movie was as short as 20 minutes.

However, here are the parts: sonic the hedgehog 2 This delay that should accelerate forward. Despite having some great moments for people like Sumpter and Natasha Rothwell (Maddie’s sister Rachel), the occasional shift to human behavior in Hawaii undermines the urgency behind Sonic’s latest adventure. And the epic fight between Sonic and Knuckles at the end of Act 2 feels like the final fight, so if there’s something left inside sonic the hedgehog 2 If it has to be revealed, the whole movie feels longer than necessary.

Fowler oversees many of Sonic’s action scenes, and while it can be dizzying for those unfamiliar with the game, fans of the character will be delighted. The addition of the prominent game characters Tails and Knuckles is welcome, but there are claims that Tails is underutilized.

But Knuckles is definitely sonic the hedgehog 2outstanding. With his literal mindset and super-powerful fists, he gets the deepest arc of all the people here, and Elba’s harsh voice is a perfect match. He makes children and adults laugh.

Voices of Idris Elba and Ben Schwartz in Sonic the Hedgehog 2
With the introduction of not one but two prominent new characters and all the exposition needed to establish the Master Emerald, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is a bigger movie than before in many ways. That includes its runtime, which pushes just past two hours when the previous film was roughly 20 minutes shorter. Fowler, working off a screenplay by Pat Casey, Josh Miller, and John Whittington (from a story by Casey and Miller), admittedly does have a lot of ground to cover. However, there are parts of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 that lag when it should be speeding forward. The occasional shifts to the human storyline over in Hawaii undercuts the urgency behind Sonic’s latest adventure, even if it gives those like Sumpter and Natasha Rothwell (as Maddie’s sister Rachel) some great moments to shine. Also, an epic brawl between Sonic and Knuckles at the end of the second act feels like a final battle, so when there’s still a decent amount of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 left to uncover, it makes the overall movie feel longer than necessary.
Still, when Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is really moving, it is pretty energetic. Fowler stages plenty of action scenes for Sonic, and while it could get dizzying for anyone not as familiar with the games, fans of the character are bound to enjoy themselves. The additions of prominent game characters Tails and Knuckles are welcome ones, though there’s an argument to be made that Tails is underused. He and Sonic forge a solid friendship, and Fowler was very smart to hire O’Shaughnessey, the voice of Tails in the games, for the film. However, Knuckles is definitely Sonic the Hedgehog 2‘s standout. With his literal mindset and super-strong fists, he gets the deepest arc out of anyone here, and Elba’s gravelly voice is a perfect fit. He will bring out laughs in both kids and adults. Beyond that, the quieter scenes between Knuckles and Sonic actually prove to be the beating heart of the film. Fowler handles those serious moments rather well, though some elements don’t always meld well with the lighthearted energy of the rest of Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

When it comes to the returning cast, Schwartz maintains the same energy he had in the first movie, shooting off references and quips in equal measure. He gets a few moments of vulnerability that allow him to give Sonic some additional shading. Of the performers who actually appear on screen, Carrey continues to steal the show. He clearly understands the assignment, giving a go-for-broke performance with Robotnik that has the exact kind of zany energy a video game villain needs. Marsden is charming, but he unfortunately gets stuck with some of Sonic the Hedgehog 2‘s duller moments for most of his scenes. Tom’s relationship with Sonic gets a new layer in this installment that won’t come as a surprise, but it still gives Marsden the chance to inject some earnestness to the film. Those are his best moments.
All told, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is more overstuffed than the last installment, and that leads to some pacing and character issues across the board. Still, this is a movie that manages to maintain the spirit of the games it is based on, and it does so with a wide-ranging soundtrack that features needledrops from Bruno Mars to Andy Williams. The cast shows up willing to play ball, with Elba and Carrey standing as the MVPs. Sonic fans will likely have a good time with this one, and while more general audiences might not understand the overall appeal, they’ll probably find some parts to enjoy as well.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 arrives in U.S. theaters Friday, April 8. It is 122 minutes long and rated PG for action, some violence, rude humor, and mild language.
