Here is a short review of "Sonic the Hedgehog" movie plot summary.
On a distant planet, Sonic, a blue hedgehog who can run at supersonic speed, is chased by a tribe of echidnas for his power. His guardian, Longclaw (Donna Jay Fulks) the Owl, gives him a bag of rings that opens portals to other planets. She uses one to send him to Planet Earth while she fends off the echidnas. Ten years later, Sonic enjoys a secret life near the town of Green Hills, Montana, but longs to make friends. He idolizes the local sheriff, Tom Wachowski (James Marsden), and his veterinarian wife, Maddie (Tika Sumpter), unaware the pair are planning to relocate to San Francisco soon, as Tom has been offered a position within the San Francisco Police Department.
One night, Sonic becomes upset over his loneliness when playing baseball by himself, and runs at supersonic speed, and as a result, inadvertently triggering an electromagnetic pulse which causes a power outage across the Pacific Northwest. Roboticist and scientific genius Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) is enlisted by the United States Department of Defense to uncover the source of the power cut. Robotnik discovers and tracks Sonic, who hides in the Wachowskis' shed. Tom discovers Sonic and shoots him with a tranquilizer dart, causing Sonic to drop his bag of rings through a portal to San Francisco. Tom reluctantly agrees to help Sonic before Robotnik arrives at the Wachowskis' house and the two flee. As the pair evade Robotnik, who labels Tom a domestic terrorist, they slowly bond, with Tom learning about Sonic's desire for a real friend.
Having discovered one of Sonic's quills, Robotnik discovers the power in it has the potential to fuel his robots and becomes obsessed with capturing Sonic. As he tracks them down, Tom and Sonic debate over Tom's plans to leave Green Hills, which Sonic disapproves. Shortly after defeating a robot sent by Robotnik, an explosion injures Sonic. Arriving in San Francisco, Tom brings him to Maddie, who revives him. While Tom explains their situation to Maddie, Sonic receives a new pair of sneakers from Maddie's niece. The group soon head to the tower's roof of the Transamerica Pyramid, where Sonic's bag of rings landed, and recover them. Robotnik arrives in a hovercraft and attacks them, forcing Sonic to use a ring to send Tom and Maddie back to Green Hills.
