Sonic the Hedgehog is about to be released, on Valentines Day of all days, because nothing says romance like a double date to see a talking hedgehog.
The first trailer suffered such negative buzz that the CGI team had to go back to the drawing board and redesign our spiky hero, and the changes got the big thumbs up from fans after the second trailer was released.
However, while the change in aesthetic for Sonic won dedicated fans over, there were some real concerns in regards the tone of the film, with some thought felt was filled with forced humour. And with so many fans of the game, could the film do justice to the lovable hedgehog's legion of fans?
Thanks to an early release for the film south of the border (Australia, in case you were wondering) I've been able to get a glimpse of how Sonic stacks up.
So get your running shoes on and prepare to spin dash, as Sonic the Hedgehog gets many things right... and some things wrong.
