Pokémon Detective Pikachu Review - 3 Stars
Pokémon Detective Pikachu - Rated PG, 3 stars. Fun for fans and others.
People showed up at the screening I attended, in yellow costumes designed to look like the star. When the furry yellow teddy bear character first appears, the crowd went wild. Ryan Reynolds voices the character and he's perfect. Justice Smith stars as the estranged son of a detective. The kid comes to Ryme City to investigate the curious disappearance of his father. Pikachu worked with the missing man and together, kid and character share a PG-rated "Blade Runner" experience. "Pokémon Detective Pikachu" runs an economical 100 or so minutes, with plenty of action and PG-rated laughs. Fans and families will love it.
