A wonderful way to kill two hours.
Detective Pikachu fails to deliver a thrilling adventure nor a good mystery however is a cute sight to behold. In a near perfect embodiment of our childhood fantasies of living in a world filled with Pokemon, this movie focuses on an incredibly boring lead actor and a weak, predictable plot, leaving the entire weight of the movie to Ryan Reynolds as Detective Pikachu. The pacing is pretty slow and generically tropey with visually stunning scenes every twenty minutes or so. I'd say this movie can absolutely wait to be watched at home however, I do want to see it succeed in the box-office because I think this cinematic world of Pokemon does hold a LOT of potential to be truly exciting. If you have children or want to relive those memories and the nostalgia for yourself, got some cash & time to spare and don't set your expectations too high then you're in for a perfectly adequate, decent, enjoyable ride.
Grab your kids or siblings and go see it on the cheapest screens you can find, no need for Atmos or 3D on this one.
