Low and behold, if it isn’t another embarrassingly lame movie based on a computer game, this time starring Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik, and judging from the trailer, set to the soundtrack of Coolio’s ‘Gangsta’s Paradise,’ combined with the extremely lacking CGI of Sonic, that looks crap, so surely it’s clear that this movie will be challenging for the title of ‘Worst Film of All Time.’
Washed up actor Jim Carrey, who destroyed his image and legacy over the past few years, not only with ‘Dumb and Dumber To’, but also with his anti-Trump stance, his political tweets and god awful political paintings, is now back to star in another train wreck of a film, and his appearance in the trailer is still way more than enough to cringe with a face full of botox injected.
Without further a due, let’s get into the ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ trailer, which is surely one of the dumbest ideas for a film based on something in all of human history, and add to that, making a script around a plotless game about a mid 1990’s hedgehog that runs fast and collects coins, screams of desperation, just like Jim Carrey’s film career…
Yes, seemingly now Sonic is some sort of escaped hedgehog from some government experiment (yawn!), and the plot logline goes, according to IMDB:
‘A cop in the rural town of Green Hills will help Sonic escape from the government who is looking to capture him.’
Yes, this is a bonafide sleep and cringe fest, all rolled into one, with Paramount distributing the film directed by Jeff Fowler, but also stars James Marsden as the cop, that’s surely set to bond with the blue hedgehog, whilst Jim Carrey plays the films villain in this live-action cross animation film, that’s bound to be “so bad”, that it will surely already sweep all the awards at next years Golden Raspberry Awards (Razzies!!)
They couldn’t even get ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ to look half decent as an animated character, and adding in Jim Carrey, as the film’s villain, is something that they may live to regret, as all we see is Jim Carrey in a moustache at this point.
But, don’t take our word for it, let’s get some reactive tweets, shall we?

Yes, Sonic looks suspect, as hell! And, we’re not the only one’s to point this out, and if first impressions are anything to go by, then both the director, studio and anyone associated with this film, will surely know how it ends up, and also be greatly embarrassed that it went onto the production line, let alone into cinemas.
"Shall we make the new sonic cute?"
"NO. GIVE IT HUMAN TEETH. MAKE IT LOOK LIKE A SMURF BADGER. MAKE IT TERRIFYING CHILDREN AND HUMANS ALIKE"
"NIGHTMARISH SMURF BADGER"

Yes, a ‘Smurf Badger’ is very poignant, but there are other intriguing comparisons that can be drawn up about Sonic, such as why does Sonic look like a “monkey boy?”

Yes, this film creates a new beacon for “sh*t” Hollywood films, in the remakes or nostalgic category, based on video games, and one wonders how they justified even making this film, right?
Now since it’s turning heads, for all the wrong reasons, the studio might be forgiven for never declaring the budget of this film, so as to keep it a mystery, forever and ever… No amount of money can justify something as terrible as this being made into a movie.

How about that for some completely crap CGI, and a pathetic trailer to match? Well, who agrees with us? So, could we be witnessing one of the worst movies of all time, coming to a cinema near you at the end of October, or early November of 2019? This is surely historic in some way, we feel…
