    Great 3D for a good movie

    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!

    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!

    Steelbook came dented

    |
    Posted .

    A really good movie and I like the inclusion of a exclusive promo card, but upon further inspection the corner of the steelbook is dented inwards. When I noticed it first before I got home, I thought it was just intentional for the corner to be flat but instead it's supposed to be rounded. Kind of disappointed due to paying for a more expensive steelbook, but would've be better if the people in charge of moving products wouldn't drop items that people paid for.

    You can probably count the amount of game to film adaptations on one hand. Fewer still are those that you could consider to be "good" game to film adaptations. Detective Pikachu it turns out is a pretty enjoyable watch. It has it's tropes sure. But it has tons of heart. Ryan Reynolds plays an excellent Pikachu (who would have thought). It's incredible that they are able to make Pikachu and trainer Tim Goodman feel like they have real chemistry. I remember seeing the promotional materials and finding it odd that Jigglypuff somehow had fur. There is that bit of a disconnect if you have played the games. However, those observations kind of fade into the background because of the world building. They were able to make this feel like a real lived in city where people and pokemon interact with one another. And then there is the fanservice. If your a fan there is a lot to love here. Even if you aren't a fan of Pokemon? This is a great film that the entire family can enjoy. Put on your detective hat and join Pikachu and Tim as this pokemon journey unfolds.

    A must-own 3D Blu-Ray Movie for all ages!!

    Never got a chance to see the 3D version in theaters, but picking up the 3D Blu-Ray helped make up for it! The movie makes great use of 3D where it isn't too overwhelming or underwhelming ... it strikes the perfect balance. The movie itself is very enjoyable, even if you're not familiar with the characters. Definitely recommended!!!

    Quite enjoyed the movie, even though I'm not a fan of Pokemon generally. Great CGI, fun cast, and a storyline filled with mystery (well, it IS "detective" Pikachu, so you'd hope that's the case). Recommended!

    The resurgence of POKEMON swept up my son and now he can't stop playing this game. When I saw there was a movie, it was a no-brainer to get it for him. He loves seeing these characters come to life on the big screen and can't stop shouting out the character names as they enter the story. He ended up really enjoying the movie.

    My 6yr old had just started getting into Pokemon when Detective Pikachu hit theaters, and we just never had time to get to see it before it left. Now, Pokemon is a phenomenon that began as I was leaving my years of pop culture, so my knowledge boiled down to it was a cartoon based on a card game, and one was named Pikachu. That was it So, as we prepared for a 3 week trip to Europe, we pre-ordered this for him to have once we returned. After a disasterous return trip home, we took a nap, got up, pulled out the futon, ordered in some pizza, and popped in the long-awaited Detective Pikachu (prior to Avengers: Endgame,) and cozied up for a movie night. And Pikachu delivered faster than our pizza. Neither my wife or I could tell you much more about Pokemon than I mentioned earlier, but both of us enjoyed it as much as he did. It has moments of "the feels," some great action, and equally great comedy. And the ending? One of the more satisfying endings to a film in recent memory... and that includes Endgame. Now, to those die-hard Poke-fans, there may be a little, a lot, all, or nothing in this film that goes "right," based on their decades of fandom. But, as a fun family film that hits all the notes in striking a balance that a whole family or larger audience can enjoy, Detective Pikachu hit the mark!
