Synopsis

The story begins when ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to work together, as Tim is the only human who can talk with Detective Pikachu, they join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City—a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world—they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.

Thoroughly Surprised!! :)

Story: 5 | Acting: 3 | Visual: 5 | Music: 5 | Overall: 5

My expectations was quite low going into the movie; as I was not quite sure whether Ryan Reynolds can pull off the speaking voice of Pikachu... but Boy was i wrong! The movie started off slow, and its is mainly because of the world building and introduction of the characters, Pokemon fans will be very happy to see all their favourite Pokemon finally in live-action. However once the movie builds up its pace, it never lets up. Great pacing in the 2nd and 3rd act, in fact this is one of the best 3rd acts of any movies I have seen this year. I was not very impressed with some of the acting, but the plot, visuals, creatures and twists saved the movie and made it extremely touching and suitable for all ages. This is a movie that will make you smile leaving the theater. :)

Good movie

Story: 5 | Acting: 5 | Visual: 5 | Music: 5 | Overall: 5

This is a great movie to watch. But beware. Nerds & otaku from surrounding will be like naming all the pokemons when it flashes on screen. As annoying as peenoise sounds.

The movie starts off with an insight into a story and as the pokemons start to emerge, the movie just get's cuter. Went for the gala premiere and was so glad to have watched it first. Looking forward for a sequel and see Pikachu again :)

Don’t miss it

Story: 5 | Acting: 5 | Visual: 4 | Music: 4 | Overall: 5

Thought a manly pikachu voice would be a throw off. But you’ll be rewarded with plot twists and some Pokémon battles. Hope the Pokémon franchise produces more of such movies

Childhood throwback

Story: 3 | Acting: 3 | Visual: 4 | Music: 3 | Overall: 4

The storyline and acting was ok, but Ryan Reynold’s detective pikachu was so hilarious that we could not stop laughing. The pokemons in the movie are exactly what I envisioned my childhood pokemons from the games to look like. A worthwhile family film that really brings the pokemons i grew up with into real life.
