His test comes when Dr. Robotnik returns, this time with a new partner, Knuckles, in search for an emerald that has the power to destroy civilisations.

2:47 Mushroom as coffee is a no.
4:59 I like the rock named Stone. Wilson-esque.
9:59 Blue Justice??
16:01 “Hedgehog of the house.” So adorable.
25:38 I like Tails just saying ‘I’m on your side’ like that’s proof.
26:17 “Who is Clifford the Big Red Rage Monster?”
35:08 Since when does a fist bump mean an unbreakable promise? I need to revisit some of my recent bumps!
40:04 Tails looks like a minion dressed up like that.
49:18 Should have been expecting the dance battle, but wasn’t. Fun.
59:14 His ringtone is the sonic music!!
1:04:49 “I want to have a word with my fiance. And that word is murder.”
1:15:59 Sonic meets The Perfect Storm.
1:17:14 “I don’t want to die like this, it’s derivative.”
1:24:34 He breathed a water bubble!
1:32:29 “I have steely focus, and I’m complex. That’s a lot for some people.”
1:40:19 Outsmarterer.
1:49:06 Knuckles absolutely trashing the fundamentals of baseball.


This felt like a more normal movie than the first one, a bit less frantic and a bit more of your traditional adventure - bad guy trying to take over the world and must be stopped. New faces this time, with Tails and Knuckles, and the sister, omg. I don’t remember her from the first movie but she absolutely stole the show this time round. Incredible.

Lots of easter eggs and fun moments, this was generally an alright film - I didn’t love it but I didn’t hate it and if I’m honest, this franchise is growing on me a little bit.

Rating: 3 / 5
