Sega produced the first Sonic game in 1991. The beginning of the trailer looks promising. It begins with a jaded cop (James Marsden, “X-Men”) sitting in his car. Then he’s surprised when his police radar reads 760 miles per hour. While investigating, he discovers a shining blue hair. Obviously, we know the source and can’t wait to see our favourite blue gaming character.
Then, we get hit with nostalgia as we see the golden rings circling the Paramount opening sequence. After that, the familiar Sega logo pops up. The nerves are on end at this point! After a shot of an old boombox playing Coolio’s 1995 hit “Gangster’s Paradise” to set the scene, we see him. The Sonic live-action character we’ve all been waiting for. He looks as blue as we remember, and his CGI appearance looks amazing. Well, that’s what we think because others had mixed reactions.
