You know, one of my favorite things about the movie is that Sonic is there, from beginning to end. For some reason I was sort of afraid this would take the Venom route and not even introduce the title character until more than halfway through. I'm just thankful for how this film turned out. It wasn't perfect, but it was just pleasing, and that's all that really matters to me. It'll certainly be a boon for the series in the long run. Also, Ben Schwartz is easily the best Sonic VA ever. He perfectly captures the heart and snark of the character and doesn't sound like a bad, over-the-top anime voice actor. I'm crossing my fingers that once Roger Craig Smith retires, Schwartz takes over.
