Pokemon Detective Pikachu QuickViews

May 14, 2019 // in QuickView - Micro Reviews by David Deverett

Since its debut on TV in 1996 and its resurgence in video games and its popular mobile app in 2016, comes the very first live-action movie based on the worldwide phenomenon known as Pokemon.

 

In Detective Pikachu Tim Goodman (Justice Smith, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), comes to Ryme City after he hears news that his father Harry is dead. Thanks to Pikachu (Ryan Reynolds) and his detective skills, he and Tim will solve the case of what happened.

 

Even though the cast headed by Reynolds, Smith, Kathryn Newton, Ken Watanabe, Bill Nighy and Suki Waterhouse are great and its visually beautiful creature design is amazing, the story does have flaws that might make some fans say “PikaBOOOOO!”

 

Office Rating: 5/10
