For old fans, this Detective Pikachu movie offers nostalgia with a new flavor. No more POKÉMON hunting adventures. In addition, the battle between monsters is also only presented at a glance. As a spice for the story.
Meanwhile, in terms of visuals, the appearance of the POKÉMON, which is shown in the 3D version, is really super smooth. This adorable appearance is guaranteed to attract fans and non-fans to watch this Detective Pikachu movie.
Among the POKÉMONs that appear, the main attraction is Pikachu’s appearance. Like his role in the Deadpool film, Ryan Reynolds, who is the voice actor, is also able to change Pikachu’s image: From a cute monster to a chatty and nosy. Blake Lively’s husband managed to turn this Detective Pikachu film into a hilarious family spectacle.
However, unfortunately, while the visualization of the POKÉMONs and Ryan Reynolds’ performance were widely praised, critics thought the plot of the USD 150 million Detective Pikachu film was too standard. Similar to the story in children’s cartoons. Indeed, there are many plot twists presented by director Rob Letterman. However, even so, everything was too predictable. So it’s not too surprising for an adult audience.
Survival is not something easy. Especially if we are stranded alone. At the North Pole. Which as far as the eye can see is just a stretch of ice and snow. With extreme weather. Which is much colder than a two-door refrigerator.
