Brief Synopsis:
As a longtime Sonic fan, I thought it was an ok movie that could've been better with more references to the classic games, a less funny villain, and the main character with a more "rock n'roll" attitude. This edit was primarily aimed at getting rid of most of the "Careyims," as I call Jim Carrey's overacting. If you pay attention, Robotnik has a more malevolent and sinister side in the script that was buried because of Jim Carrey's over the top persona. Robotnik is now more sinister, most of the film's songs have been replaced, and various sound effects from the classic Sega games have been used.
The intention was to make a streamlined version of the movie, by cutting a lot of jokes and unnecessary stuff, adding one deleted scene, toning down the Robotnik character and therefore making him more evil and dangerous, changing the soundtrack and inserting some music and sound effects from the classic Sega games.

I'm not a huge fan of Sonic. Never have been. Was a huge N64 user as a kid. I loved Goldeneye and several other iconic nN64 games. Then I moved on to other shooters like Halo as I got older and away from Mario and Sonic type stuff.
But I'd be lying if I said watching this edit wasn't enjoyable. At 93 minutes long I was a happy camper watching this all the way through. For context Space Jam, the original, is less than 90 minutes, while it's sequel was just shy of 2 hours and that contributed to it's terribleness.
Jim Carrey isn't overdone since his parts were edited and toned down. Sonic himself isn't overblown either. The music replacement feels natural and I wouldn't have ever thought that some of it came from the game soundtracks.
The editing overall was very well done. Even though the source material is goofy you can tell the editor took this edit seriously with his cuts and additions.
Check it out. I wasn't groaning at all like I thought I would. I definitely recommend.
