The story begins when ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu 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.
Review of Detective Pikachu by Michael Runyon
In my personal opinion, being a fan of the Pokemon series, this movie was very lackluster to me. I was excited seeing the trailers and what this movie had to offer, but putting it all together it was so boring and confusing that it stopped peaking my intrest within the first thirty minutes. The scenes have no build up what so ever. One minute, you in a simple home learning about the main character, the next minute its all non stop action with the main story becoming a sideplot. The only thing saving this movie in my opinion was the visuals, and the visuals were either on point, or completely terrible. Some of the Pokemon depicted in the games were not performed in this movie. Simply put, if this wasn’t a Pokemon movie, or from a well liked series at all, this movie would have flopped, and been trashed from the start.
Once again, I would just like to say thank you to Mr. Paul for taking me to see the movie
Review of Detective Pikachu by Brandin Runyon
Detective Pikachu is a charming little movie about a young man name Tim Goodman
(played by Justice Smith) who tries to find his estranged father, Harry Goodman. During this crusade, a mysterious pikachu (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) with the ability to speak with only
Tim. Both of them with a history with Harry Goodman decide to work together, to find the reason for Harry’s mysterious disappearance. As the two with conflicting personalities bump heads
discover that something is making the realistic pokemon violent. Together they must find the cause for these violent bursts and the missing detective.
While the movie is based on a game called “Detective Pikachu” they left out major plot points in the movie. By taking these liberties, the movie became more unpredictable, while retaining the original premise. I found the animation to be realistic and superb, while some of them might kinda look kooky or even creepy. But most were cute that you wanted to take home, and since they were so realistic to thought that you can. The animated pokemon had a tactile quality that you can feel through the screen. The movie while being a pokemon movie, it is very easy for a person with a lack of knowledge of pokemon to watch. The jokes were sharp and were satisfying, most of them were clever to keep an adult entertained, so was satisfying for both parent and child. I’ve found that is very hard to make movie based on a cartoon look good, like the “Avatar: The Last Airbender” fiasco, but this one pulled out all the stops. All thing considered, I would give this first live action movie pokemon high marks, and would hope that they make more like this. A +
