What to watch this weekend: 'Sonic the Hedgehog 2,' Michael Bay's 'Ambulance,' 'Metal Lords'
Here's a guide to new movies that'll satisfy every cinematic taste, plus some noteworthy theatrical films making their video on-demand debut:
If your kids dig video games: 'Sonic the Hedgehog 2'
Clocking in at more than two hours, a movie about a quick-footed critter should not be this unnecessarily slow.
In this animated/live-action hybrid sequel, fun-loving Sonic (voiced by Ben Schwartz) takes on the returning, more out-of-his-mind Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey),
teams up with cute new sidekick Tails, ruins a Hawaiian wedding and cracks Marvel and "Fast and Furious" jokes. Young fans of the original hit will enjoy it,
although the real highlight is the steely, two-fisted but still adorable antagonist Knuckles, enjoyably voiced by Idris Elba.

If you love vehicular destruction:
This action thriller is for those who feel Michael Bay movies haven't been Michael Bay-ish enough.
Mateen plays a veteran who needs extra cash to pay for his wife's experimental surgery, leading him to unwittingly join his criminal sibling (Gyllenhaal) for a $32 million bank heist.
It goes awry as they steal an ambulance with an EMT (Gonzalez) in the back who's trying to save a wounded cop.
