Just went back from seeing it in theatre. I liked it! From the point of view of someone that disliked the first one, this was a massive improvement. The first half packs the same...questionable writing from the first film, but once it picks up it gets really good. I was grinning like a child by the end, it felt so good having my childhood hero back on his A game. Knuckles is the best he's ever been too. Can't believe I'm about to say this, but...make him more like this in the games too, please? I've always been strongly opposed to having any movie element get into the main games but this version of knuckles is just so goddamn cool, man.
