For media educator

Based on the classic Sega game character, the film is suitable for both children and adults. The main character is a sympathetic and playful Sonic the hedgehog, who has to live hidden and far from home because of his special powers. The film’s themes are loneliness, specialness and everyone’s need for close human relationships.

Sonic the Movie is very fast paced and full of humor. It contains some violence – including a bar fight and shooting drones – but the events do not feel very realistic. From the characters, you can immediately see who is good and who is bad, and nobody really has a bad time. In order to understand the story, it is not necessary to know the Sonic character beforehand, but for fans the film certainly offers a very special pleasure.

Despite the cute main character and cartoon-like approach, you should carefully consider the age limit, because it is not a film aimed at the youngest children, and there is also no Finnish-dubbed version available. (Source
