Well, I didn’t think it could get any worse but here we are today. The trailer for Paramount’s Sonic The Hedgehog movie has FINALLY been released to the public and gawd damm it was some piece of work. Let emphasis that I’m a huge Sonic fan. I still prefer him to Mario to this day as he has a special place in my heart. So know that the next few lines you read about this movie comes from a true fan. I’m not one of those people that will hate on Sonic just because it’s what’s cool now. I’m critiquing because it generally bothers me how bad this trailer represented Sonic.
This trailer did not feature the blue blur.
I don’t know who that was that looked like Sonic in that trailer but it clearly was not him. As far as I could tell, the trailer showed a small blue extraterrestrial alien abomination with lightning abilities. When you look at it from that angle, the movie actually looks like fun time, something you could take the kids to see.
However, as a Sonic movie, No! It was bad. Not terrible, or catastrophic, just bad. I really hoped that the leaked stuff were truly early concept art and designs but they were true. Jim Carrey as Eggman wasn’t too bad if I’m being honest and he does get his true look but why doesn’t he just start with the classic original look in the first place. There’s really no reason why he’d suddenly transforms into the classic look Eggman. And why is Sonic emitting lightning out of his body like he came from CW’s The Flash. Why Hollywood man! They just love to kill anything for that “own take” type on shit.
Well, here’s the trailer. Let me know your thoughts on this “masterpiece”.
