The Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Rotten Tomatoes Score is in as with the film opening this weekend in theaters, reviews have started to trickle in.
With 85 reviews currently accounted for, the Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Rotten Tomatoes Score stands at 66%, and since the movie has already opened in foreign markets, the Audience Score is at a perfect 100%.
Similar to the reception of the first movie, which has a Rotten Tomatoes Score of 63% and an Audience Score of 93%, we again see the big difference between the critics and the fans, as the flick is obviously a fan-friendly popcorn movie while it’s not going to win any Oscars, something the critics should probably take into account.
I thought the first movie was okay and wish they did a better job with the editing process, but hopefully, things improve with the sequel, which adds new characters and Idris Elba, so I don’t see how they can go wrong with Sonic 2.
Paramount also has a lot of faith in the Sonic brand
Paramount also has a lot of faith in the brand as back in February, Paramount announced Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is already in development, along with a Knuckles spinoff series starring Idris Elba for the Paramount Plus streaming service.
