Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own
When ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, his son Tim (Justice Smith) embarks on a journey to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu (Ryan Reynolds), a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to work together, as Tim is the only human who can talk with 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 characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.
Ok I admit I don't really know much about Pokémon stuff so I reviewing this as someone who is pretty much clueless when it comes to this fandom but the movie sounded interesting so I decided to give it a shot anyway.
I didn't know any of the Pokémon characters other than Pikachu but that was ok because I still enjoyed this movie. It was entertaining and it is a good one for the entire family to watch.
I give this 4 out of 5 stars.
You can now purchase Pokemon Detective Pikachu in stores near you or online.
