'Knuckles' Review: Idris Elba's 'Sonic' Spinoff is a Big Miss

The 'Sonic the Hedgehog' movies weren't great, but at least they had Jim Carrey.

'Knuckles', a spinoff series, is shockingly bad, raising the question of who this is even made for.

Idris Elba returns as the voice of Knuckles, a warrior on a bizarre mission to a Reno bowling tournament.

Adam Pally ('The Mindy Project') plays an annoying human sidekick, Wade Whipple.

The plot is thin, with Knuckles facing a power-hungry villain and his goons.

Instead of action, 'Knuckles' gets bogged down in Wade's family drama.

It's doubtful the series will appeal to 'Sonic' fans beyond young children.

Ultimately, 'Knuckles' serves mainly to promote Paramount+ rather than delivering entertainment value.
