Last weekend St. Louis Dad and family gotten an invite to see Sonic The Hedgehog before it was released to theaters nation wide today. In the simplest of terms, the movie was awesome! As a kid growing up with Sonic on Sega as well as the animated series, this movie brought back that fun and excitement of getting to know this blue devil all over again.
Stepping off on a rocky start with a crazy CGI design, the team behind Sonic took the Internet’s wisdom to heart and brought Sonic to life by making him look like… Sonic. Listening to fans was enough to already get me to the movie and seeing what was in store. This dad was not disappointed, and either was mom and the kids!
The movie is a lot of fun. It is action packed with lots of jokes and of course the incredible Jim Carrey.
Our two kids have even taken to their YouTube Channels to share their delight of how great Sonic was!
Of course once we got home, Sonic was in the air. Gotta run fast was the quote used for the remainder of the day, and as always snuck into our Valentine’s Day project as well!
Al decided for his first Valentine’s box for school, he was going to make the speedster himself!

The film also stars Tika Sumpter and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic.
