We got to see the premier of POKÉMON Detective Pikachu on Tuesday and it was worth the wait. My sons have been talking about it for months.
I honestly know nothing about POKÉMON except that I find the trading cards in my couch and under my bed or stashed in secret hiding places. The boys are crazy for POKÉMON. But I pretty much went into the movie blind.
Detective Pikachu (RYAN REYNOLDS) turned out to be my favorite character. I loved it! Detective Pikachu kept me on my toes and the boys were on the edge of their seat during the whole movie. It was suspenseful and full of comedy adventure.
Ryan Reynolds stars in the first-ever live-action Pokémon adventure as Pikachu, the iconic face of the global Pokémon phenomenon—one of the world’s most popular, multi-generation entertainment properties and the most successful media franchise of all time. The story begins when ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim (Justice Smith) 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 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 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.
