The first live-action / animated film in the Pokémon franchise ticks all the boxes for an enjoyable quest tale — a reluctant hero, a funny but powerful sidekick, a pretty and smart female protagonist and a deadly villain.

POKÉMON: DETECTIVE PIKACHU

  • Direction: Rob Letterman
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds (voice), Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, Bill Nighy
  • Rating: 3 / 5

This is definitely a film for the Pokémon fan, but surprisingly, it’s also a fun ride for those who’ve never played, and don’t know what a Pikachu is.

Many things work in favour of Pokémon Detective Pikachu, the most significant being the fun factor — there are witty one-liners, intelligent humour, a smart script. The film also has a well-crafted plot, and a story that is emotional but never soppy.

In a world where most humans and Pokémon live in harmony, the film follows Tim Goodman (Justice Smith), who dreamed of being a Pokémon trainer but must give up that dream when his mother dies, to go in search of a father serving as a detective in another city.

Justice Smith as Tim  Goodman carries the film effectively throughout, keeping you invested in his character of a fumbling, confused 21-year-old with a heart of gold.Justice Smith as Tim Goodman carries the film effectively throughout, keeping you invested in his character of a fumbling, confused 21-year-old with a heart of gold.
