Atom User Reviews for Pokémon Detective Pikachu
This brought me back to my child years. I haven't been watching Pokemon since I was little. If you're new to Pokemon, this is a headstart. And it finally broke the video game adaptation curse.
very serious for a talking mouse movie
The story wasn’t great but it was a really fun movie and it looked great
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.
my kids loved it, I was mildly entertained.
The trailer is a dead giveaway! I knew that daddy is Pikachu.
a great movie for Pokemon lovers. it still would be enjoyable even if you know nothing about Pokemon
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.
good movie but I wanted more content
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.
Great story, bad dialogue
The must see movie for any Pokémon fan and take some interesting Spins, it’s funny and jam packed with action, it’s a must-see.
After seeing this great movie, am I the only one that wonders what Jessie and James talking meowth’s identity is.
Would have liked more Pokemon battles but its was good.
felt they just wanted to cash in on the Pokemon popularity why it was relivent
bad acting, bad graphics, terrible storyline
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.
It's pretty good. Good amount of references to the games which I enjoyed.
The dads soul is in pikachu and the guy in the wheelchair is evil, mew two is only trying to help them out the greninjas were responsible for the car accident
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.
Exciting! And they captured the essence of the Pokémon so well!
I care about this movie more than endgame
Detective Pikachu truly brought a favorite Pokemon to life. Had a smile on my face for the entire film. Story was pretty good albeit predictable. Wish there were more Pokemon, but still a fun movie.
I went to see this movie with my best friend and this made my inner child completely come out. I loved seeing all the pokémon come to life. I will definitely be watching this again, however I wish the movie was longer.
Story didn’t make sense but there was a lot of Pokémon and man do I love Pokémon
Can watch many times.
It was absolutely hilarious had me laughing almost the entire movie!! Plus it’s Pikachu!!!
First flick with the babies definitely one for the books!
As a Pokémon fan I loved it!
I liked the film overall, and the CGI was really good,I would recommend the film, and I wanna see it again!
Great movie! Made you feel good! Must see!
Worth Watching! Funny Moments, Family Friendly, Hits You Right In The Jellies!
Great movie!! ❤
Amazing! Not the best movie, but still had great time
We didn't think we'd like this movie but it was really good!
Great movie! It surprised me. I really didn’t think it was gonnna be that good but it was really fun and exciting and great laughs.
Great movie I wasn't into Pokémon and I watched the movie and it's was great!
Can’t wait for a sequel!
If you grew up playing Pokémon you must see the movie!!!
I loved this movie and it was funny, Pikachu is Soo cute
Story was kind of confusing at times, an OKAY movie, but super cute and brought back nostalgia for sure.
I am legitimately sad to return to our reality of no Pokémon 😭
Seeing these Characters on the big screen is great feeling.
Love the message about family!
I liked it, I'm older and watched the cartoon as a teen. Good times then, nice modern update. So many poke-cameos.
Very funny and nicely done!
Best movie from my old days
this is what I wanted ever since inwas a kid a live action pokemon movie 😂😂😂 cant wait for future. movies
This was a really cute movie. I was expecting a more but his is a kid friendly movie, so I should curb my expectations.
Ryan Reynolds saves the day again!!!
Surprised at how good it was , the story has heart as well as the cast , I just wish for a little more battling but it is a mystery film after all either way it’s fun and keeps you interested till the end very twisty
its a great movie if you like pokemon otherwise is just ok
Not bad. Just expected more battles/action
Fantastically fun film! The kids loved it!
Loved this, laughed the whole time!!
Love all of his movies
Very twisty indeed
The plot felt like it was stitched together by 12 year olds. And some of the language does NOT suite family friendly ears; I mean there’s no gnomes, but damn and hell aren’t things a kid should hear outside of church... The redeeming quality of this movie was the impressive animation of the Pokémon and Willow Smith’s acting. His scene partners were all subpar... all of them... it was kinda sad to see since they had spent so much time and money on a film like this.
was a great trip down memory lane and decent story line. the Pokemon were soooo cute
A good film. It was like my childhood come to life a bit. Worth seeing just for the feels.
Reminded me of my dog.
Nostalgic to the extreme it was like watching what it would've really been like to have pokemon be real!! Loved it all the way!!
it was a nice movie to see on a saturday.
It was good and a nice twist on the franchise of Pokémon.
Childhood brought to life!
Will miss Ryan Reynolds voice as Pikachu
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.
