    The Sonic in the new live-action movie is the BEST interaction of the blue hedgehog we've had yet! At least, when it comes to his speed. For all the complaints being leveled at this movie about it's Sonic design and possible plot problems, this is the best showing of Sonic's true speed that we have EVER seen. Over on Game Theory, I've talked in LENGTH about Sonic and his unbelievable abilities and now we have come full circle. Today, we PROVE that movie Sonic is the BEST Sonic!

    The impression I got from the movie is he wasn’t actually the cause of the blackouts. For instance there was the part where the officer asked why he was there and Sonic revealed he was there to save our planet. From what? Maybe what’s actually causing the blackouts. Also if that’s what he came to save us from it would make sense that the events would be happening around locations where he was.

    Ffs Matt emp?!?!? Do emps travel through time?!? Day time explosion turns lights off at night... Am I the only one that noticed this gosh darnit!!!!!!

    • Icy1
      Icy1 18 hours ago +1

      You said it Matt this would happen instantaneous how do you not notice night vs day.... And it's not a difference of minutes look at the sun's corilation to the earth, again just a highschool dropout finding your videos with glaring flaws like this hard to watch.

  • Icy1
    Icy1 18 hours ago +1

    Wait a tic, can missiles implode because even at that speed the air would be displaced so much faster than the explosion hitting even half of its peak. And it might be that I'm watching this on a phone but I don't see the key sign of a explosion (the shockwave of air, then again being a highschool dropout I don't really know what implosions look like slown down)....
    Also I'm sounding abit too British for a Canadian.

  • Icy1
    Icy1 18 hours ago +1

    My guess that pic of the power going out is obviously not related to that explosion....
    The literal difference is night and day.
    And this is the closest I've come to watching this trailer... So anything else you want to get wrong? Like how you don't know how humans have 2 different legs (left and right) so your street fighter theory is wrong too, 1 = lift and 1 would cause drag. Dunno man maybe it's just the fact I'm a highschool dropout.

    If you see a Sonic goes to make that looks lights go out then she must be going faster than the speed of light and that would be way too fast so I'm pretty sure it's just a few
