Seriously, the best anime live action adaptation ever. They did everything right and weren't afraid to through some kid friendly curse words in there. I pray to Arceus that there's more.

for the Pokemon themselves it was great put compared to the Pokemon story there was a let down and there are alot of holes in the story so if you are just watching for pikachu this is for you.if you are watching for the love of Pokemon universe this was a let down.

It was amazing! I loved every second of this movie. There was never a dull moment, between the scenery full of pokemon to see and the story unfolding! I didn't want to stop watching.

Honestly the movie was very nostalgic. Some of the acting was awkward but the script writing was simple and perfect for a child to grasp and understand. This movie is not intended for the picky Oscar critic. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

This is not the movie you're looking for. The movie basically frowns upon Pokemon battles. At every turn, everything feels wrong. Throwing millions of dollars at something does NOT make it good.

Movie was alright. I don’t know what expecting from it because after all, it’s a kids movie. Acting was lackluster at some point, but CGI Pikachu made it worthwhile. It’s a movie to watch with your kid and maybe friends if you want.

Thankfully it isn’t a long movie. Justice Smith and Ryan Reynolds wear out their welcome very quickly, with a meandering plot and no real surprises. Very mediocre. At least the other Pokémon are kinda cute.

Despite its sizable budget, Detective Pikachu has a similarly run-down quality. What story there is barely makes sense, and it feels as if large chunks have been taken out at random. But in a world packed full of franchise-extending would-be blockbusters, there’s something strangely appealing about its patchiness.

It turns out Pokemon Detective Pikachu isn’t half bad.

An aggressively cute family film that’s also a spectacle-driven sci-fi noir-mystery with hints of Blade Runner and the third act of every Marvel movie, this adaptation of the popular 2016 video game throws everything at the audience with such vehemence that the sum effect is overwhelming more than it is entertaining.
