If you’re looking for an adventurous, exciting, funny and heartwarming movie, Sonic the Hedgehog is an excellent fit. It tells the story of a special blue hedgehog raised on a tropical island on another planet, until the bad guys begin pursuing him for his Supersonic speed powers and he has to flee using magical golden rings that take him to the small town of Green Hills in America.
Speed is a theme throughout the movie. At first, a slow tortoise is juxtaposed against the hedgehog’s super fast running ability. Then, the two main characters Tom and Maddie are making a big decision about whether to move away from their slow-paced town to the bustling city of San Francisco.
Later Tom and Sonic must journey far together to get the magical rings that were accidentally tossed onto the top of a building in San Francisco. Although Tom is not enthusiastic about taking the creature on a road trip that quickly becomes very dangerous, he learns to enjoy the slow pace of driving together with his new buddy. During their journey, the story takes a turn in a heartwarming direction.
Here are my top 5 favorite inspiring quotes that Sonic shares as he develops some wisdom that speed is not the only thing that matters to him. Sometimes, a slower pace can help you appreciate the people around you even more.
“Clearly I’m not going to be able to do this on my own.”
“Be strong, be strong.”
“What could possibly more important than protecting the people you care about?”
“This is my power. And I’m not using it to run away anymore. I’m using it to protect my friends.”
“All I want to do is spend my life with people I care about.”
