Sonic The Hedgehog Is Available Online Now

Sonic the Hedgehog‘s film debut just escaped the coronavirus-induced cinema shutdown in Australia, but it wasn’t screening for long before sessions ended. If you missed out on seeing it in cinemas, there’s good news — Sonic the Hedgehog is available online in Australia.

If you’ve not seen it yet, Sonic the Hedgehog is an absolute delight and a rarity in video game movies — it’s funny, well-plotted and supremely enjoyable. Ben Schwartz is delightful as Sonic and James Marsden plays a fantastic clueless sidekick — but the real scene-stealer is Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik, who hams up the role in expectedly cooky fashion.

In short: it’s a great, fun movie and you should check it out even if you’ve lost faith in video game adaptations.

You can now purchase Sonic the Hedgehog digitally from a variety of platforms in Australia including iTunes/Apple TV, Fetch, Foxtel, Google Play, Microsoft Store, PlayStation Store and the Telstra TV Box Office.

Would the movie please hardcore fans? I took a moment to think. It didn’t matter, I said, shrugging. It wasn’t a movie for them; it was a movie made for kids. A movie with a sappy friendship plot, a silly cartoon animal, and Jim Carrey. Will hardcore fans love Sonic the Hedgehog? I don’t care. Kids will, and that’s the point.”]

This week, the new look Sonic the Hedgehog design was revealed alongside the movie’s latest trailer. While Sonic has been given an adorable facelift, what hasn’t changed is my unavoidable and deeply embarrassing attraction to the Jim Carrey version of Dr. Ivo Robotnik.”]
