Sega’s mascot hits our home movie screens in all the style you’d expect from such an icon. He’s fast, he’s blue, he’s spiky and he has attitude to spare!

A young and very blue hedgehog is advised by his guardian to hide his extraordinary powers of speed. Like most young kids when it comes to being told what not to do, he ignores the advice and ends up fleeing to Earth as a consequence. Sonic (voiced by Ben Schwartz) sets up home in Green Hills, a small town where young cop Tom (James Marsden) dreams of bigger things than speed-gunning turtles. But when he discovers Sonic, he also discovers more about himself… especially after taking the fugitive space hedgehog into his care when the government lets loose the mysterious – and totally whacked out – Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) to hunt the blue guy down.

It’s a wild, engaging romp with plenty of action and a plethora of cool little nods to the video game franchise that fans will lap up. The star of the show is Carrey though, who totally lets loose the physical comedy that he still does ever so well.
