I am so disappointed with this movie like for the love of god, Sonics voice was terrible. It sounded like a kid having a tantrum but worse!With Tails, he sounded as if his nose was blocked, it was extremely annoying.
Bill Wise didn't do a too bad of a job of voicing Knuckles, however he shouldve acted more rougher and his hat was cool. To be honest, I think Edward Neal & Charles Campbell did great on their roles as Eggman and Old Man Owl. For the rest of them, it was gullible and needed work!
I think I'll be sticking with the game series and the modern Sonic. I am hoping that SEGA won't ever make another film because of this. Actually they shouldn't have made a film in the first place! You have been warned!

A guilty pleasure
MissSimonetta2 September 2013
Warning: Spoilers
This little known Sonic OVA from the mid-90s can be grating: the English dub is pretty bad and the story is a bit incoherent. But I won't lie, it has a considerable amount of cheesy 90s anime charm that prevents me from writing it off entirely.
The OVA takes place in a different universe from the games or any of the existing TV series. Sonic and co live on a floating continent, while Dr. Robotnik (or Eggman-- unlike most people, I use the names interchangeably and have no preference) lives in the world below, which is a post-apocalyptic wasteland. The doctor holds the president and his daughter Sara for ransom in order to force Sonic to go to the lower continent to fight one of his robots. Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles emerge victorious, but it turns out the whole thing was a trap designed to obtain Sonic's DNA in order to create Metal Sonic. They have one last battle in the north pole, with the fate of the world in the balance.
Some of the characters are written differently from their game and American TV counterparts (which were already quite different with each other to begin with). Sonic and Tails are about the same, but Knuckles and Dr. Robotnik are distinct. Robotnik, while still an egomaniac, is more of a buffoon than he usually is and a pervert too, lusting after the main female character Sara. Knuckles is much more mellow and not gullible at all. He and Sonic aren't even rivals any longer, and he even refers to the blue blur as his 'best friend'! Oh and he's a treasure hunter too.... with an Indiana Jones hat.... oh and he can fly. Not glide. FLY. The new characters can be irritating, but for the most part I found them funny. Sara is like a human version of Amy Rose, pining after Sonic and sporting a violent temper. The owl is a loony geezer and the president is just kind of there.
The style is taken from the full motion video opening and ending of Sonic CD. It's cool looking and I wish it had been utilized in other Sonic media. The music is catchy and very 90s. If you liked the Japanese/European soundtrack for Sonic CD, then you'll love the music here. The voice acting is awful, but more in a 'so bad it's good' fashion than in a 'so bad it makes you want to cry' manner (like the 4kids dub for Sonic X).
It's not close to touching SATAM, but this OVA is nowhere near the unpleasantness of Sonic Underground or Sonic X. It's one of my guilty pleasures: stupid and obnoxious, but fun.

Fantastic
rossrobinson2 March 2004
Sonic the hedgehog: the movie i think was fantastic. For the first time the creators had made sonic the hedgehog and tails miles the fox into their first very own movie. Also introducing other characters like sarah the human girl, metal sonic, metal robotnik, robotnik (Now known as doctor eggman) and Knuckles the echina
I hope that the creators who create Sonic X, i reckon they should make a sonic x movie, so that it introduces Amy Rose, Big, Cream, Cheese, dr eggman, etc:. I also think that SONIC X is fantastic as well. I hope one day they will be a SONIC X MOVIE. Oh Please Please Please. I give sonic the movie a fantastic score 10 out of 10.

The tagline........it hurts.
xamtaro22 August 2010
Released in 1996 as two OVa episodes and edited together into a movie in 1999, Sonic the Hedgehog is a fun little animated outing for the light-speed blue hedgehog and his fox friend Tails. However, 'fun' is all that this movie has going for it, especially when compared to other animated adaptations of Sonic that have graced TV screens over the years.
Its first most obvious flaw is its animation, which for all intents and purposes seems worse than some of the episodes in 1993's Sonic the Hedgehob TV series. It boggles the mind how an OVA, which is meant to have a higher animation budget than a TV show, can look worse than TV animation from years ago. The animation and artwork can only be classified as 'lazy'. For example, Tails no longer flies by spinning his tails like a helicopter. His tails disappear and in their a brown and white disc forms over his head which gives him the ability to levitate. Similarly, whenever Sonic runs, you do not see a blur of feet but a simple red ribbon-like object that is meant to represent his feet.(at times those said 'feet' are not even attached to his body). A couple of scenes do stand out such as Black Eggman chasing sonic and tails through the streets of 'EggmanLand' and some scenes involving Metal Sonic, they look really good. But overall, the artwork and coloring is flat and the characters lack a sense of fluidity. Some off-model art does creep in, possibly due to poor quality control.
Depending on one's expectations, the story could be seen as either a flaw or a boon. But either way, one cannot deny the childish nature of the story nor the absurdity the plot. Dr Eggman has kidnapped the president and his daughter in order to enlists the help of Sonic and Tails to destroy 'Black Eggman' who has taken over his realm of EggmanLand. However, it is all a ruse to trick Sonic into being an unwilling subject in Dr Eggman's latest evil plot. One involving the might Metal Sonic. Sure the games were not exactly shining examples of good storytelling either, but an anime deserves to be compared to others of its kind. And sadly, it falls short in the comparison.
Most fatal flaw of all is the portrayal of the characters. Despite many claims of the superiority of the Japanese version over the English version, it does not do justice to the characters at all. THe character of Sonic has always been a smart mouth and a braggart, but in this movie he definitely crosses the line and comes across as a truly unlikable jerk. This impression is further amplified by the Japanese script which as a good bit of harsh language coming from both Sonic and Tails (tails screaming at Sonic to 'Go to Hell' kinda kills the whole innocent perception of the character). As villains go, Dr Eggman is a complete idiot and the President's daughter, Sarah, is one of the most irritating damsels in distress in anime history.
Fans of the game, do check out the much superior Sonic the Hedgehog series from 1993(Known in fan circles as 'Sonic satAM), or the Japanese version of Sonic X. This so called 'movie' is not even worth the time to stream on youtube.

It was pretty good but still, I would have liked to see a Sonic SatAM and SU movie!
SonicStuart11 June 2005
Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie
Star Rating: **** out of 5
Genre: Animation/Action
I thought this Sonic movie was pretty good but still I would have liked to see there be a movie of the Sonic SatAM cartoon series and Sonic Underground. Plus I think this movie should have been longer than 60 minutes but still it was good. In this movie, Sonic and Tails are sent on a mission to Robotropolis and the Land of Darkness by Dr. Robotnik where he was banished from the Land of Darkness by Metal Robotnik, which is a trap set by Robotnik and then the movie comes down to be an ultimate showdown between Sonic and Hyper Metal Sonic! Also Knuckles joins in later in the movie to help out Sonic and Tails. The animation design of the characters are sort of like the old Sonic video games and the design of Knuckles is the way he looks in the Sonic comic books. Can Sonic, Tails and Knuckles stop Dr. Robotnik and Hyper Metal Sonic from destroying the world? Well you have to see that for yourself.
BOTTOM LINE: PRETTY GOOD BUT STILL, WOULD'VE LIKED TO SEE A SONIC SATAM AND SU MOVIE!

Nice Tribute to a Video Game Idol
TheHande10 September 2006
People seem to think that the anime adaptations of video-games are somehow better than the films based on games using live-actors. Personally what I can't stand is how people who make this kind of anime always have to crowbar anime-conventions into places where they don't belong, in pathetic attempts to add some depth to the characters and their game-world. Undoubtedly some of the goofier elements of Anime do find their home in the Sonic Anime, but the over-all plot is rather ridiculous in hind-sight.
That's not to say that the OVA doesn't look good, but for some reason OVAs just tend to disappoint me with their lack of comprehensive closure, just like with Burn Up W and New Dominion Tank Police. Why OVAs can't look to Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki for a way to keep an OVA alive, I just don't understand.
As a side-note (and notice that this did not affect my vote): I have always thought that of all Sonic cartoons this has had the worst English-speaking voice-cast. The Japanese voices were decent, but none of the characters sound themselves in the English dub.
Sonic Anime is a nice tribute to the old-school Sonic-fans, but other than that there's nothing very appealing about it.

Not as great as the video game series
Criticman1215 May 2011
Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the greatest video game characters ever made next to Mario and Luigi from, 'Mario Bros.', Fox McCloud from, 'Star Fox', and Samus from, 'Metroid'. It was so good, that it ended up spawning a comic-book series and four T.V. Shows. I have played some of the video games and I'm not a fan of the series.
But in 1999, there were two OVA's that were merged and became a movie.
The story is really simple, Sonic and his friends have to defeat Dr. Robotnik and Metal Sonic to save the world.
The film has some good animation, funny moments, and I did like the idea of putting Metal Sonic in the movie.
The problem's I have with this film is that the plot and story were weak, the English dub was pretty bad and I didn't care too much about the other character's in the movie.
'Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie', is not an awful movie, but it won't entertain a lot of people. If you're a fan of the series, then you would like this movie. If you're not a fan of the series, then this movie is not for you.

Amusement for 3-year-olds or people with IQs in single figures.
As a film designed to cash in on the video-game character, this video is rather late. Sonic the Hedgehog's popularity reached its peak in the early to mid-nineties and has been in decline ever since.
This abomination of a film certainly won't cause the fans to return in droves. More likely it will alienate any of them who still remain.
The plot, or what passes for a plot, involves Sonic's enemy Dr Robotnik tricking the hedgehog into going down into the underworld where a robot Sonic is waiting. Sonic also has the worry of rescuing the princess from Robotnik's clutches.
They can all drop dead as far as I'm concerned. This is more like an early morning cartoon than a movie. The animation looks cheap and badly-drawn (the same pieces of animation used over and over again in some places), very little of interest seems to happen and the characters are so irritating and obnoxious you couldn't care less about any of them. The music is forgettable and the voices are below feeble - Tails sounds like he has a cold all the way through the movie, Sonic is a wailing adolescent and Robotnik has the most laughable attempt at a German accent I've ever heard. Add to that pathetic attempts at humour and the leaden 'action' scenes (which are like watching somebody playing a low-budget video game) and you have a turkey even Bernard Matthews wouldn't touch.

Look a like
jgarland-8053719 November 2021
Very smooth animation, even for direct-to-video standards. The animation itself is similar to the opening sequence for Sonic CD, in which also looked quite amazing. It may be easier if Directed both by Tim Burton and Japanese Director and Japanese writers. It has Darker and Edgier for Anime: Than the 90's cartoon version by far. It's long since been surpassed by the Sonic X. The first film was based on the first Sonic Game on the Sega Genesis, the second film in 1997 based on Sonic CD, the third film was based on Sonic The Hedgehog 2 on Sega Genesis, the fourth and final film was based on Sonic The Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles. The next series was Sonic X contains the first Reboot of the franchise.
Overall anime was a good choice for Sonic but if this film turn into a film series by Tim Burton it will be all worth it.

An insult to the Sega video games. Was this made by Nintendo?
StormSworder19 March 2005
I absolutely loved the Sega Sonic games on the Genesis/Megadrive, which is why I was looking forward to seeing this. Hmm. I've noticed over the years how many stars of cartoons have been made into truly awful video games. I think the same works in reverse, as this deadbeat film proves. For what it's worth, the threadbare plot concerns Sonic going down into the underworld where he faces an evil robot Sonic.
Everything about this film stinks. The drawings are dire and the plot is slow. Racing along and spin-attacking robots makes for good games, but watching it happening in a cartoon is like watching someone playing a video game and becoming increasingly impatient as you wait for your go. The same pieces of animation are used over and over, and the dubbed voices are a joke. Sonic is a whining brat, Tails sounds like he has a cold, the princess is an irritating tantrum-throwing madam and Robotnik is a laughably-accented buffoon who poses no threat whatsoever. Stick to playing the video games.

It's okay, but it could've been a lot better.

Sonic The Hedgehog The Movie 1996 Download

CartoonKing26 June 2011
'Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie' is a direct-to-video anime film released by ADV films in 1999. It's actually not a movie though. It's really two failed Sonic anime pilots put together to make a 60 minute movie. While this movie is very close to the Sonic games, it's really not as good as the previous Sonic cartoon, a short-lived animated TV series on ABC simply titled 'Sonic the Hedgehog'. I believe that show is one of the greatest cartoons of all time. So of course it's gonna be pretty hard to live up to that show. And even though this movie is okay, I truly think it could've been so much better. Here are my problems with the film:
  • Terrible voice acting. Sonic sounds like Fanboy from the terrible CGI Nicktoon 'Fanboy and Chum Chum', Tails sounds like he has a cold, and Robotnik sounds like an ordinary, generic villain. Not only are the voices annoying, but the voice actors just don't show any effort in doing good voices. It's like they're trying to be annoying. The ABC Sonic show had a superb voice cast with stars like Jaleel White, Kath Soucie, Jim Cummings, Rob Paulsen and Tim Curry.

  • Weird characters. Some of the new-to-this-movie characters are just plain weird. Like that human girl Sara. Why does she have cat ears and a cat tail? I did like the old man Owl though.

Overall this movie is decent. It has a lot of funny moments, I love how the animation looks like the cut-scenes in 'Sonic CD' and the story was pretty good. It has nothing on Sonic SatAM, but it's an okay movie.
Rating: 6/10 'Decent'

Hilarious and Great Film
mrusty51 September 2009
Warning: Spoilers
Sonic the Movie/Sonic OVA is a well-made Japanese dubbed movie which really captures the early games and elements of the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series before it all became about 3D aspects, werehogs and Shadow. The animation and music are good, although the voice acting is a little iffy but full of memorable lines (e.g. 'Strange isn't it?').
The plot is split into two acts. Eggman sends Sonic and Tails down into what looks like a dark abandoned version of New York to stop Metal Eggman, a giant fat robot, from doing something. Knuckles makes his animated debut in this film, sporting an Indiana Jones' hat and wrongly-coloured shoes, and for some reason, is mistook for a mole. Eventually, Metal Sonic makes his fantastic appearance to initially take over the world for Eggman.
Being an anime cartoon, there are a large number of elements from the Japanese cartoons that are included, including characters randomly falling over, the character Sara is placed into a rather short miniskirt of sorts, and there is some adult humour. Unlike America, Japan doesn't really care about swear words and the protection of their kids, and included some adult jokes in the movie. The notable jokes include Sonic flipping the bird towards Metal Eggman, Sara has a vision of her breast-feeding a baby resembling Eggman, Tails accidentally touching her cleavage, and rather dodgy scene involving Metal Sonic unintentionally looking up Sara's skirt.
Regardless, it is a great movie to watch if you are a Sonic fan. I recommend you watch a parody of this film on YouTube, called Sonic B******ized.

Good, But not good enough.
I rented this movie a few weeks after it's release. I thought this movie was okay. Yet, it was a little stupid!!! The film was also odd. Example: In the movie, Dr. Robotnick has 2 bombs, a turtle, and a hare.
If you like Anime movies that are odd, than rent this movie.
I give it a 5 out of 10.

Decent, if not great
winged_loner6 June 2006
I saw this movie when I was ten years old and fully into the whole American Anime craze. I was watching DBZ and Pokemon when I saw this film. I haven't seen it since, but for some reason I cant describe, it held a place in my heart. I never forgot that first scene where Sonic is laying on the beach, enjoying a sunbathe and Tails comes up with a jet-propelled body-board and annoys Sonic by blocking his rays. I remembered the first time Knuckles appeared, flying in front of the city with that hat. The character design is inaccurate to the games design, but the animation really makes up for it with beautifully done action pieces that truly defined Sonics sense of speed in the games and integrated into the film. The story is decent and has its fair share of moderately clever twists, but nothing thats going to turn the heads of many critics anytime soon. Sonic has seen rise and fall, but this film was nowhere near his fall.

Good, but don't take it too seriously
judasfm2 September 2005
Watching this gave me a distinct feeling of The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog meets Pokemon. First things first: The dubbing from Japanese is actually not bad, as dubbing goes. My main criticisms would be on the sound of the actors rather than their talent: Sonic sounds a little like an old-fashioned cowboy, Knuckles sounds far too young (and WHAT is up with that HAT??) and Tails...well, Tails sounds like he has a bad cold.
The story isn't too bad; it's just strong enough to keep the movie going. Introducing the President's daughter (or even the President) was a big mistake; the characters don't fit at all. The writers appear to have completely disregarded the planet and backstories set out in the original Sonic franchise, creating a completely new planet called Freedom. That said, this one-off planet does feature more aspects from the games than most of the other TV series, with the spikes, springs and well-known bots such as Caterkiller.
Robotnik came across as a six year old having a bad day. I've heard the TV series The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog called slapstick...well, this goes way beyond slapstick. Certain things like Robotnik blowing raspberries at Sonic at his (supposed) moment of victory...well, I won't bore you with the details. Metal Sonic was good though, and the fight between him (it?) and Sonic was well done. A good movie, entertaining but not a patch on Sonic X or The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. Fantastic for younger viewers though.

A mediocre dubbed, but great 60 minute anime!
segabeat23 November 2004
This movie is just cool.
Dr. Robotnik, Sonic's enemy, says that the generator in Robotropolis is acting very werid. And if it isn't stopped by sunrise the next day, it will explode and destroy their world. Sonic agrees to take the task. Although, when he arrives down there, there's some trouble waiting for Sonic...
This movie definitely worth watching to fans of Sonic the Hedgehog, or anime. This movie has slightly below average voice acting, but it isn't bad enough to disturb you while watching. The humor is funny, and the battle scenes are super action packed. This is worth watching.
9/10

Pretty decent, but an execellent 60 minute OVA
CureYellCheer26 May 2020
OK, let's take this OVA in consideration. That has to be one of the best OVAs I 've ever seen. It's better than the Funny Pets anime (it sucks). The reason why? It's because of the animation, storyline and voice acting. Sonic and Knuckles' voice actors voiced pretty well. However, Tails was voiced like a boy who had a sinus infection for about 2 days (or more if I'd like to).
Overall, this has been a good start to the SEGA film franchise.
Score: 9/10

Ridiculous but fun.Warning: Spoilers
Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie.
First law of watching movies: If it says 'The Movie' at the end of the title, it won't be good, and should not be taken seriously.
Second law of watching movies: If it's based off a KID'S GAME, it's gonna be a KID'S MOVIE. Do not expect a wonderful plot, impeccable dialog, or deep personalities in the characters. It's a KID'S MOVIE. Such movies are quite shallow, and, again, should not be taken seriously.
Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie, fulfills both laws, and thus, should not be taken seriously. Deal with it.
Okay, now to my own impression of this cartoon. It was a silly movie, but I kind of enjoyed it. Nice action, a few characters worth a snicker (like a kooky owl), and the setting of some scenes were great.
That it was set on Freedom Planet gave me the idea that this had little to do with the continuity of the games. Such suspicions were confirmed by a few new characters (a gutless king and a screaming brat of a princess), with only Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles as familiar characters.
I did have a few complaints. Number one, the princess drove me up the wall. I hate screaming brats; I hated the screaming girl in 'War of the Worlds' and I hated this one. However, it was a Japanese movie, and I thought I read somewhere that the Japanese see temper tantrums and behaving like a little girl as a good thing. Whether or not that's true, I found it a little annoying.
Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles sounded like KIDS. Seriously. Mind you, in the comics, they are teenagers. I thought Sonic had way too much of a 'screw you' attitude. Some might have thought it cool, I found it irritating. Tails was often hollering for help, especially in the beginning of the movie. (Interesting note here, Tails' real name is Miles.) Knuckles, I thought, was the best of the lot. He was laid-back, confident, and mature. Too bad he showed up so late in the movie.
Unlike a lot of movies with a shallow plot, this one's actually possible to follow. Maybe rather strange, but it does pick its way through a sequence of events, that are, at least when you let your inner child out, believable.
All in all, this wasn't a bad movie, if you know what to expect. If you're looking for something great and thought-provoking, don't watch this. If you want to watch a kid's movie that requires no thought whatsoever, enjoy.

Captures the charm of the Sonic CD Videos.
staticsaber23 February 2006
I remember back when I was around 10 I saw this movie on VHS at my local Fred Myers and being the huge sonic fan I was (and still to this day is) I bought it and I loved it through voices and all and I dunno if I followed the plot that well either. Now years later, I get my hands on the DVD with the Japanese sub and now heres where my real opinion of the movie comes in.
The plot is actually really clever, as far as a 60 minute movie goes. Eggman comes to Sonic and Tails for help. He's been kicked out of his home by a monster known as Black Eggman (metal Robotnick or something in English). Why should Sonic care? The generator powering Eggman's city is about to explode putting all of Planet Freedom in danger and everyone is counting on him. The whole trip seems like its from a Sonic video game itself and things get really heated up when Sonic and Tails face Black Eggman in a deserted city. When things look bad, the two get a helping hand from Knuckles and a well animated battle takes place what with great action (how they take out Black Eggman was pretty cool) and some nice humor (After taunting Black Eggman, Sonic and tails begin to leave him until he reveals a pair of metal wings and rocket jets, getting ready to run them down. Their expressions are great and how they both say the exact same thing 'Noooo waaaayyy...' always cracks me up.) But Sonic soon has to fight something much more dangerous than Black Eggman, or anything Eggman has ever cooked up. A robot that not only looks like Sonic but thinks like Sonic, acts like Sonic, and fights like Sonic takes on the his perfect match, the fastest thing alive.
I remember the days of Sonic CD and boy oh boy did I love that intro. Never got to see the ending until Sonic Mega Collection. It was these two videos that opened my eyes to what the blue hedgehog can do. Never slowed down, thinking on his feet, looking cool all the while. The animators, as probably most of you know, where behind this. Compared to todays standards the animation might seem dated, but it still works nicely The voice overs in Japanese are done real nicely. Sonic has a tough voice with a bit of sarcasm thrown in there. Tails sounds more like a female, but in turn sounds younger and his voice is much more tolerable than the English. Knuckles sounds tough but in a way friendly. Eggman sounds good, though he sounds more goofy than serious usually. Supporting characters have fitting voices as well.
I will be honest, I haven't heard the movie in English in years so I can't compare ^^; The music deserves to be put on CD, nothing seems out of place really and the main theme of the movie, Look Alike, is done very nicely.
As for my rating I'm taking one point off for some dated animation and another point for the English dub over. At least they didn't edit anything and the dialogue is pretty much the same in either one.
Recommended to Sonic fans, highly recommend Japanese dub. 8/10 I have heard some complaints about this movie that have to do with this film being to different from the cartoons of the early 90's, like being set on Planet Freedom and not Mobius. The game is based off of Sonic CD and from what I can tell the the writers used most of the ideas from the game for the movie (Metal Sonic *of course*, time warps, and the areas in the movie reminded me of the game as well.) This Sonic world was made in Japan so it has nothing to do with the cartoons and comics of America. At least I don't think Mobius was the planet they used in Japan.
Comparing them seems a little unfair in my eyes. And don't give me a hard time if I'm wrong.

Greatness Achieved!
TailsPrower31 August 2003
This movie is awesome! Great animation, good plot, awesome characters...nice and true to the personalities. The big flaw (like on Sonic X) is the English dubbing. If you have the chance, watch it in Japanese too to see my point. But the movie is great. Watch it. I suggest it in both languages, though...

Ugliness Begins Here

Sonic The Hedgehog Movie 1996 Download Free

gregoryofthepillar11 March 2016
When Sonic the Hedgehog debut in video games, the games were such a hit that some studios went on the make TV shows based on the games. The early games and early TV shows were things done in the appropriate way, therefore making them like classics. But this 'movie' marks the beginning of a certain ugliness the would eventually change the Sonic franchise forever. I'm starting to wish it never happened.
After appearing in successful video games, Sonic was picked up to appear in two TV series: Sonic SatAm, and the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. What makes those two shows good is that the selection of the cast is good. In fact Tails is played a boy in both series.
Then they made this movie which had little or no theatrical run. I wonder. Why was a bimbo selected to play Tails instead of a boy? Is a boy too difficult to hire? Whatever that is, it certainly started the ugly era where bimbos overtime take over the role of that fox in both video games and TV series. Such a sick thing that makes me want to quit my fandom in Sonic stuff.

this movie was great, only one thing could have made it even better... cause the voice-acting was so bad that i was thinking about suicide for awhile. But since I'm a really big fan of sonic the hedgehog i'd just had to watch it, and i don't regret it.
Robotnik looks so cool as always, will Sonic, Miles, Knuckles be able to defeat him I wanted to know, so i had much fun watching this, it's much better than any Sylvester Stallone film you've ever seen, not that he's in the movie but...
everybody, if you are a big fan of sonic the hedgehog, you should see this movie!

I just saw this movie today on YouTube, which is kind of a hindrance, having to watch it in six different parts, but I was absolutely blown away by it!!! This movie is everything Sonic used to be, and should still be---fast, edgy, and cool. This, I'd say is a representation of all the cool things about Sonic, while Sonic 2k6 is the antithesis of The Sonic Movie. I saw the English dubbed version, and yet I was still blown away by it. I'm not usually a fan of dubbing, but I'm just cool with it. It's pointless censorship I don't like. Anyway, I love how the Sonic Movie has all sorts of violence and other inappropriate stuff. If you're a fan of Sonic, you must watch this movie. As Sonic says a lot in AoStH, it's 'Way past cool!'
