The first evaluations of the new Sonic also appeared on the Rotten Tomatoes aggregator. At the time of publication, the rating of the picture from critics was 56% (based on nine reviews). This is less than the first film scored on Rotten Tomatoes in 2020 – then it received 63% of experts.
Opinions of critics about the second “Sonic” were divided. Some called the film “colorful, funny and youthfully sentimental,” while others called it “another soulless and raw film for making money on young audiences.” At the same time, critics again noted the good acting work of Jim Carrey, who played the role of Dr. Robotnik.
The world premiere of the film is scheduled for April 8, 2022. In Russia, the release of the second part of “Sonic in the movies” postponed indefinitely. The reason for the cancellation of the rental Paramount representatives called the fighting in Ukraine.
