    So some youtuber created a fan made sonic movie, which isnt TERRIBLE (the voice acting is pretty bad and some animation scenes are a bit bleh) But it is interesting. See for yourself sonic fans

    Production values aren't bad but why they're making something so serious gritty dark for fucking Sonic the Hedgehog is beyond me.

    Because why not? Sonic games were quite dark in a few installments - not to look too far, in Sonic Adventure 2, which is practically my favourite. "Sonic" and "Dark" do go together well if you execute it properly.

    Taking away most of the terribad parts of the game, it does have a rather dark story, what with the Murder Of Maria and the actual backstory of Shadows legacy.

    I said "when they're executed properly", and Shadow the Hedgehog is not a good example of that. Sonic Adventure 2 on the other hand is, and that game had quite a serious tone - the whole Earth was at stake and by the end of the game, things did turn quite dark.

    The Mushroom Kingdom is at stake in every Mario game. Does that make them dark? I mean like Mario's the last hope for the kingdom, even the universe in Super Mario Galaxy. But the game certainly isn't dark.

    Sonic's dated catchphrases and his GOTTA GO FAST music ruins any image of a "dark, gritty" Sonic.

    Also it's a game based around an anthropomorphic hedgehog who fights a villain named "Dr. Eggman". That's not dark.

    At all.

    I see quite a difference between a robo-apocalypse and Bowser finally banging Peach.

    That's just the attitude of the main character, not sure how it "ruins" a story arc.
    Depends on how you execute it, really. The comics can be quite dark as well, but then again, Sega Sonic =/= Archie Sonic.

    But I digress... It all runs down to whether you like Sonic and that kind of fiction or not.

    In the Saturday AM series, Eggman has already won, and has an iron-grip rule of the world. Nearly everyone is transformed into robots with no free-will, and the Earth is 80% polluted and bombed. It's all up to Sonic and about 10 other freedom fighters to fight back against Eggman, even though they hardly have a chance, and they can never seem to get ahead. The heroes even lose sometimes, and when they do, there is always a huge loss when they do. (Allies getting "killed", ect)

    All in all, if you watch the series, you'll see it's the darkest incarnation of Sonic.

    IIRC, the Mega Man fan movie was made by the same guy as the Sonic film.

    It was not great but not bad. I kinda agree with Guild. It was too dark. But I liked what they were trying to do. I'm no huge fan but i was nice to see some good talent. Guy who played Robotnik did well!

    Oh my...

    I'm truly sorry to the folks that invested their time and efforts, but thats just dreadful in every way.

    The scene when Sonic showed-up to save that 'actor' from the robots was hilarious! (Wife, from over shoulder: "Wait, this is supposed to be PARODY, right ?!?)

    Again, I respect your efforts, but the result ended-up looking like something that was vomited-out by 'SyFy Originals'.... :huh:

    Post of the year! :P

    Anything with "Sonic" and "Fan" normally gives me instant worry (See most "Fan Characters")

    W-o-w......that makes the first video look Oscar-worthy. :wtf:

    As for this 'effort', all I can really say is: Cute couple, but maybe get out of the house every now and then, eh? OH - and dont forget to use condoms for safety!
