When skilled detective Harry Goodman (Paul Kitson) disappears suddenly, his son Tim (Justice Smith) is determined to find out where he is. Also taking on the investigation is Detective Pikachu (Ryan Reynolds), the former Pokémon partner to Harry. Pikachu and Tim work well together, finding and following clues across the metropolis of Ryme City, a place where Pokémon and humans live together in harmony. Not everything is as it seems, as the two discover a terrible secret that may ruin the Pokémon universe in this action-adventure animation film. Written and directed by Rob Letterman.~Clare Perez-Izaguirre Lopez
When I first heard of the films existence, I was entirely skeptical, especially since the director of Gulliver's Travels (2010) was at the helm. Sure, I love Pokemon, but I wasn't sure that the film was gonna be any good. I mean, the director started out in animated films and handling a good CGI animated film (Monsters vs. Aliens) and then made a good movie in the form of Goosebumps, but combining the distaste of Gulliver and the usual disdain of video game films on general, just soured me. Luckily, they hit a nerve when they cast Ryan Reynolds as DP and that awesome trailer just sold it for me. I loved the film when I saw it early May 2019, sitting back and watching a humorous film with great CG and 3D, enjoying the heck out if it. Sure, the plot is standard detective fluff, which makes for fine Juniors First Film Noir, but predictable for the rest of the audience. The acting was fine, the camerawork (shot on film to enhance the noir-ish feel) was very nice and the sets and the CGI Pokemon look so cute and real. It's a fun film, but better in 3D if you can view it on the format.
Moving on to the PQ and AQ, the film looks gorgeous on the big screen, so it makes sense that it follows the same path on the small screen and you'd be correct. Even though I haven't a 4k BluRay player, the standard BluRays look incredible and sharp, despite a lack of increased resolution (it is a 2k DI, so it's an upscale anyhow) and HDR (which should make it look amazing in 4k), and is demo-worthy for the standard BluRay. The 3D though... Well it's top-notch! Several pop-outs, amazing depth of the image that feels organic to the point of it looking like a 3D native image, and a surprise lack of color loss. Truly, a spectacular 3D conversion and disc. The included DVD looks fine, but that's mainly my lending disc, so moving onto the audio. Yet again, the Dolby Atmos is spectacular, but sadly WB had yet again neglected to offer the Atmos on the 3D version, just offering a 5.1 DTS-HD, which also is amazing, but it lacks the 3D feel of the 11.1 option.
Extras are surprisingly kinda shallow, but it does offer some fun. Some nice featurettes on the designs of the Pokemon, some interviews with the cast and crew, a 3 minute commentary from Mr. Mine, and the best extra being Detective Mode. It is a p-in-p mode with several behind the scenes extras showing up throughout the film, offering some good stuff about making the film.
Overall, this is an awesome disc, begged to be seen in 3D, and some decent extras and a Detective Pikachu Pokemon card included inside, makes for a total must own!
Great movie came with a code to watch on phone, or tablet and for the car ! Came with a Pokémon card as well! Came with a regular disk and a blue ray one! Also, awesome movie for any Pokémon lover out there, makes the perfect gift at a reasonable and affordable gift !!!!
Very fun and enjoyable movie! I have been a Pokémon fan since red and blue was released on the gameboy. I grew up with Pokémon and this was a very well made live action example of what a Pokémon movie should be. I hope this opens up other live action movies of the franchise. Another reason I purchased this edition is I collect steel books for movies I really like. Although this movies ending was sort of predictable it was still entertaining to watch. I have also collected and played the trading card game and it was a nice added bonus that it came with a Pikachu promo card!
