The blue hedgehog can also be so delightful
The first trailer for ""Sonic The Hedgehog" was released last year and received overwhelming criticism from fans because the character's features and body proportions were far from the original look, causing Paramount Pictures to urgently "repair" the film and delay the original plan for release in the second half of 2019, but now it looks like the second version of the trailer has been remastered to give The second version of the trailer gives fans a new feeling of "much better", "this is "Sonic The Hedgehog", "from weird to cute", and ""Sonic The Hedgehog" is not like the previous films with obvious flaws, "Tomb Raider", "Detective Pi", and ""Sonic The Hedgehog". The ""Sonic The Hedgehog" main movie is not like the first few "Tomb Raider" and "Pokemon Detective Pikachu" which have obvious flaws, with vivid and interesting characters and stories that let me see the new world of video game adaptation movies, I believe they will not let fans down.
Is ""Sonic The Hedgehog" good?
I can't say how perfect the whole movie of Sonic the Hedgehog is, but I can say for sure that it has fulfilled all the requirements of a great movie. Not only does it let the audience see their childhood video game characters reappear on the screen, but the director also has a complete grasp of what we love about Sonic the Hedgehog, and through the movie's plot arrangement and scene design, it brings out the character's characteristics and his appeal to the fullest. The film's plot and set design bring out the character's characteristics and his appeal to the fullest extent, and in the 100-minute running time, it brings people a very fulfilling and satisfying movie-going experience that is completely free of burden.
The good thing about Sonic the Hedgehog is that it manages to combine both film plot and overall entertainment, not only by creating a sense of speed with a few Sonic the Hedgehog running wild on the road, but also by concentrating on telling a complete story with a smooth narrative rhythm, which may not be difficult by ordinary standards but as a live-action adaptation of a video game, without too much complexity in either the game or the animation In the case of the plot, ""Sonic The Hedgehog" can retain the characteristics of the original essence so that the audience will not feel abrupt and incongruous to Sonic the Hedgehog, who is hunted by Dr. Egghead in the human world, such performance is already worthy of our high recognition.
The charm of Sonic the Hedgehog's character
The live-action version of ""Sonic The Hedgehog" starts from the time when Sonic, who is faster than normal, was hunted by the bad guys as a child and came to Earth. The two of them learn and grow from each other through the exciting and adventurous road trip, and then extend to the philosophy contained in the family viewing story.
The plot of ""Sonic The Hedgehog" is the same as past movies with similar themes such as "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial", "Monster Inc", "Monster Trucks" and "How to Train Your Dragon", with unexpected superpowers, cross-species emotional connections and a villain who tries to capture aliens for research and use. But whether it's Sonic the Hedgehog himself, Tom, who is torn between whether to go to San Francisco, or even Dr. Egghead, who has big ideas and ambitions, we can feel the vitality of each of the three of them as they walk down the road of life through the shaping of their characters.
The basic story of "Sonic the Hedgehog”
Just as the entire film "Sonic The Hedgehog" revolves around friendship and family, how do we find our direction and purpose in this seemingly ever-present journey of life where we have to keep "running" and stop to feel the people, things, and objects around us at the right time? I think this is how director Jeff Fowler interprets Sonic the Hedgehog, a racing, adventurous video game title. I think the film explores fundamental life issues in a popular story, which not only has the advantage of resonating with the audience but also establishes the basic model and direction for the entire series to follow.
I like the colorful visuals of Sonic the Hedgehog, the overall light-hearted and humorous tone of the story, and the hilarious and spoof atmosphere. Not to mention the SEGA logo, which is made up of dozens of famous classic games, the film has not yet officially opened and people are looking forward to the future.
"Sonic The Hedgehog" is the success of the video game movie
Looking at the surprising results of the "Sonic The Hedgehog" movie, and the fact that SEGA did participate in the production, I can't help but wonder if the initial trailer was a hype to promote and market the work through audience criticism and to create a good image by accepting fan suggestions. But even so, from a viewer's point of view, the most important thing is whether we can be entertained, moved, and inspired by the film, and in terms of Sonic the Hedgehog's excellent performance so far, it seems pointless to raise these questions.
"Sonic The Hedgehog" has perfectly demonstrated with many past works the success conditions of video game adaptation movies, not necessarily to make the movie like "playing video games", in the end, there must be a complete story that can convince the audience and combine the style and characteristics of the original work, just like "Back to School" with the narrative perspective of the movie The ""Sonic The Hedgehog" is an innovative design and interpretation of the established formula, such as the slow-motion fight scenes of the Fast Silver and Flash, all with a lot of interesting ingenuity to make the fans' eyes shine, and it is no surprise that the film has been successful in North America in terms of word of mouth and box office.
Sonic the Hedgehog Review Conclusion
On the whole, "Sonic The Hedgehog" is indeed a commercial entertainment film that is simple and easy to understand, capturing the audience's psychological desire to go to the theater and relax, but not losing the ability to provoke people to think. "Sonic The Hedgehog" perfectly achieves its goal as the first installment of the entire series, leaving one to look forward to the introduction of more characterful characters and the development of other interesting story branches in the future, breathing new life into "Sonic The Hedgehog", a video game-born in the 90s.
