I was hoping for that from the initial announcement, but the trailer has put me in serious doubt.
Like, the Mario movie was frantic and just balls-out insane... but this... this just looks boring. The action on display is tepid, the design for Sonic is yawn worthy and the dialog just lands with a sad, wet thud.
And they've used hugging Gangster's Paradise despite there being, like, nothing on screen that fits with the tone of the music.
Put simply, unless there's something insane they're not showing us... this is going to be a slog of a movie to sit through. The kind of thing that makes you fall asleep ten minutes in and only wakes you up with the occasional loud noise.
