Plot summary

What is Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" movie plot summary.

Several months after defeating Doctor Robotnik and moving into Tom (James Marsden) and Maddie Wachowski's house, Sonic the Hedgehog (Ben Schwartz) attempts to help the public as a vigilante to little success. Tom advises Sonic to remain patient for the day his powers will be needed before he and Maddie depart for her sister Rachel's wedding in Hawaii. Sonic plans to have fun while home alone, but is interrupted by Robotnik, who has returned with the help of Knuckles the Echidna (Idris Elba). Knuckles attacks Sonic and demands the location of the legendary Master Emerald, desiring to honor the legacy of his extinct tribe and restore balance to the universe.
Sonic is rescued by Miles "Tails" Prower (Colleen O'Shaughnessey), a two-tailed fox who idolizes him and came to warn him about Knuckles. Sonic convinces Tails to help him find the Master Emerald, while Robotnik reunites with his assistant Stone (Lee Majdoub) and, scheming to steal the emerald for himself, offers to help Knuckles in his own search. Sonic and Tails follow clues on a map from Sonic's deceased guardian Longclaw to Siberia, where they find a compass within an old temple. Robotnik and Knuckles track them and pursue Sonic and Tails down a mountain. During an ensuing avalanche, Robotnik and Knuckles steal the compass. Tom rescues Sonic and Tails by using a ring to teleport them to the wedding.
The wedding guests of Rachel's fiancé Randall (Shemar Moore) reveal themselves as undercover agents of the Guardian Units of Nations (G.U.N.) and capture Sonic, Tails, and Tom. Maddie and Rachel (Natasha Rothwell) work to rescue them while Robotnik and Knuckles find an underwater temple containing the Master Emerald. Sonic goes to the temple and fights Knuckles, but Robotnik steals the emerald and leaves Knuckles to die with Sonic as the temple collapses. Sonic and Knuckles escape and agree to work together to defeat Robotnik as Tails rescues them in a biplane. Robotnik absorbs the Master Emerald and gains the ability to bend reality to his will.
