PanamaTrickster Reviews: Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (2022)

See movie reviews (with no spoilers) of the latest films from PanamaTrickster, an aspiring movie critic.


This movie knows exactly what it is, and doesn't let you forget it. It's a slapstick comedy easy for the family to enjoy together. The pop culture references are spaced out evenly enough to where it's never annoying, and most will be niche enough to sometimes go over your head entirely. But when one does hit you, it'll make you smile.

Jim Carrey brought his A-Game once again and delivered the version of Dr. Robotnik that we've all come to love from the first film. Idris Elba did well as Knuckles, but his voice is so recognizable that it will sometimes take you out of the film and just have you imagining what it might've been like in the recording studio. Knuckles could probably have been served better with a less recognizable voice, or someone unknown entirely.

The movie's overall lesson is pretty basic, making it a good movie for the family, but some might not be able to help rolling their eyes over the message that's been burned into our brains since 2001's The Fast and the Furious. All in all, this movie was good fun, with plenty of laughs and very inspired CGI and characters that pay the original video game series a perfect amount of respect.
