mbaree’s review published on Letterboxd :
Detective Pikachu engulfs the viewer in the world of Pokemon seamlessly similar to Blade Runner. The CGI was incredible with lifelike Pokemon embodying their two-dimensional characters once on pixelated screens in a Pokedex approved true to scale rendering. I loved it.
However, my only issue lies in the detective aspect of the storyline, in which the story tries its best to be mysterious and unpredictable. I was caught off guard, yes, but generally felt everything just... fall into their laps.
The movie was fun, cool, and felt like a dream to me. After seeing the trailer for the new Sonic movie, this movie gave me hope for future video game adaptations.
Also, bless the casting decision for Ryan Renolds as Pikachu.
