This is another one of those movies that I don’t have too much to say about it. That’s because it’s one of those movies that is fun to watch but once you leave the theater you don’t really think about it the rest of the day. On one hand Sonic is one of those kid movies that is actually enjoyable for adults to watch but on the other hand it was very similar to the first one. So, I wasn’t left left awed and thought it was an average movie.
There is one thing that does awe me about the Sonic movies is the fact that it got a second movie and what appears to be plans for a third all because the makers of the movie listened to the internet. I 100% believe that if the makers didn’t listen to all the shit they were getting about the original animation style of what Sonic was going to look like then the movie would have tanked. But since they did end up reanimating Sonic it’s only natural that it became a big success. That’s really the one reason I’m pretty impressed with the Sonic movies.
But back on topic I would give the movie a 6 out of 10. Worth it to see once in theaters.
First things first this movie did not deserve the amount of hate it’s getting. Was it perfect? No. But it wasn’t horrible either. I thought it was perfectly fine. I do wish it was so much better then it was because I was super hyped for Morbius, but not every movie can be amazing sadly.
For me there was really only one huge flaw and that was that it was super fast. Like someone I know described it as it seemed like it was playing at 1.5 speed. Which makes complete sense. It moved so quickly from one scene to the next that it left almost no time for character/plot development. It feels like they just wanted to get Morbius’s origin story over quickly so they could move straight into the meet up movies. Which I don’t necessarily fault them for wanting to do if it’s true.
But besides the quickness I didn’t really mind the rest of it. That might also be because I love vampire stuff so I was just really happy to have a superhero vampire mashup movie. That is probably why I’m trying to be optimistic about possible future team ups with Venom. All in all I’d give Morbius a 6 out of 10. Not great but average.
