#Pokemon #DetectivePikachu

  • This movie is great. The action and references are great and the emotional stuff was genuinely good. Plus just seeing Pokémon in live action is really cool

  • The concept of this movie seemed like trash after hearing Ryan Reynolds was the voice of Pikachu, made no sense. I came in with a non bias opened mind as a non Pokemon fan and enjoyed the movie. I just wish there was a little more adult humor. 7/10. This REALLY felt like a squeal to another movie that sets the tone..... The tone was definalty not set and Pokemon fans are left like "WTF" is going here. Also Deadpool's Cab driver is in this lol. Nice one.

  • this is the gayest shit ever created on the face of this planet! this is not pokemon at all! the story was not even about pokemon, but about a stupid kid that don't even like pokemon who lost his daddy in the mall! this movie is a piece of shit! nothing to do with pokemon! this the first of it's kind too and already they fuck it up with bullshit!

  • I thought the movie was pretty fun to watch for the comedy bits the emotional ones had no weight to it so I kinda came off as weird because the main character is pretty fucking awkward and bland at points and it feels like they were trying to make interactions like the Pokémon games but who the hell exchanges information if they are “beaten”

  • I enjoyed this movie last night, i do have a few problems with it sure but thats cause im a fan and i wanted it! lol I feel it didnt have enough pokemon battling in this film, i know its a Detective move, but its still pokemon right? Could you do another review "spoiler talk" if you will, so you can go a bit more in depth to some of the points you make here such as the pysics moment you mentioned. And the batman reference? cause i missed that

  • This movie was so annoyingly bad, terrible dialogue, terrible story telling... but ooh we threw like so much money at vfx! That's what a good movie is right? The entire time watching this, all i could think about is what the fuck did the screenplay for this look like? How did this ever get made? Do the directors and writers hate pokemon? Like seriously they used a majority of the most unlikable pokemon as characters for the movie... why were the giant mountain turtles even needed? Oh they weren't by the way. why did they sneak into a research facility when there is literally a tent open at the back of the facility? So much of this movie made no logical sense at all. Ryan Reynolds is to the Pikachu movie what Jim Carrey will be to the Sonic movie... The only reason to watch.

  • Was decent and the pokemon were cute that was enough. Would prefer a conventional pokemon film with Ash going around being a pokemon trainer instead battling gym leaders and catching pokemon.

    Darksider95Darksider95Năm trước
  • Reynolds carries it. That's the bottom line. Next one is how good the designs are, things you think is not important until you see the abomination called sonic live movie. All pokemons look great, no sight of my fave, blaziken, but the classics are there.. Last one that makes the movie good is the story is more focused, it's not about "just" pokemon, but it's about detective pikachu solving a case, there's twist in it and overall i like it, a good video game movie, a rare thing since the old days. Enjoyable, fun, recommended. Imdb and rotten only give 6? What these critics expect? Plot like capote or good will hunting? Same sites give avengers 9 lol 🤣

  • I think it was aiming for small kids. I didn't buy the Two Main protagonists - the boy and the girl. The CGI and action were pumped up, and i liked the actor who played the villain, but the lines and the screenplay aimed for children.

  • Story was meh. I needed more pokemon battles but it was mainly Tim fighting Ditto. Was expecting team rocket or other legendaries, but nope it was just mewtwo and dynamax torterra.

  • You know the movie sucks when you watch a dubbed version (without Ryan Reynolds voice).

  • Jeremy - you call BS on the laws of physics in a world where Magcargo exists - a pokemon with an internal body temp exceeding 10k Kelvin (for reference, The Sun has a temp of 5.7k Kelvin, making Magcargo twice as hot as the Sun) - a wild Magcargo appearing next to you would literally make you spontaneously catch fire, and melt.

    • Ok and? This is targeting the 90s kids Not only that there's more adults today that play pokemon than kids so it was smart to add that in and Idk about you but there was hardly any kids when I went same with other people on reddit

  • Honestly I was very disappointed n the movie. Big pokemon fan but I say there weren't enough references at all. I sat through the movie thinking the acting was okay but to me the story was the weakest part of the film. I was expecting background easter eggs and references out the ass. To me it didn't blend very well because they marketed it to children and being an adult I felt left out. A kid would love this movie for all of its faults. When the main kid was on the train and that video started playing I was like so this is the pokemon version of zootopia? One of my biggest peeves was the fact that it didn't feel like it belonged in the pokemon universe. What was the name of the region? What were the starters? why did it seem to have an abundance of region pacific pokemon? The story and the script were underwhelming to me. Pokemon fans come in all ages but this was directed towards children and not the actual fans. It had little inside jokes or references so that all of the passerby's could follow along. Quick throw in at the end also didn't like the pacing , movie felt rushed. There was no real chill between scenes it was just one thing to the next and kept going. The movie took place over the course of like 2 days and just felt like it needed more.

  • Justice’s performance in this film was horrendous. He was monotone and his comedic timing was terrible. He also had no chemistry with any of the other actors. Seeing the Pokémon was great, but this film would have been better without the humans or at least with better lead actors.

    MyJelleoMyJelleo2 năm trước
  • This whole movie is practically zootopia. Pokémon going savage because of a scientific substance, different species coexisting in a big city, heck even the scene in the lab with the greninja is almost an exact copy of zootopia! They shine the flashlight into a seemingly empty cage and then a creature jumps at the glass. This exact thing happens in zootopia except with a tiger! I’m not saying I hate this movie though. I actually thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • Minor spoiler: the fact that they could put a waterboarding joke in a kid’s movie but make it work and because it’s an essential character ability from lore just shows how much care and ability they had with this movie. I didn’t expect much, but got everything and more.

  • I grew up with the original _Pokemon_ games, cards and anime in the late 90's and early 2000's. Admittedly, I drifted from the franchise around 2003/2004 and haven't really kept up with the new games, but _Pokemon_ still has a lot of nostalgia for me. And to me, this was definitely a "Worth Buying on Blu-Ray" film. Saw it with a friend and we both had a really fun time. It really captured the magic of the series, the story was fun and Ryan Reynolds knocked it out of the park. And the world building was just top-notch. It felt like a real living, breathing world that you could walk right into. As soon as I got out of the theater, I kinda knew I was hooked back in after all these years. And I know I'll now be first in line to buy the new games for the Switch.
