Sonic the Hedgehog

EPIX | 8:00 pm

Jim Carrey's persona lends itself to live-action projects that originated in cartoon form, and it proves valuable again in this entertaining 2020 take on a video game series. Wanted in another world for his amazing powers, Sonic (still animated here, and voiced by Ben Schwartz) comes to Earth to hide from pursuers, then jeopardizes his peaceful life in Montana by setting off a power outage that alerts the sinister Dr. Robotnik (Carrey). Sonic then finds allies in a sheriff and the lawman's wife (James Marsden, Tika Sumpter) while fleeing to San Francisco.
