Detective Pikachu is actually a good kids movie, both succeeding at entertaining kids and giving them a good life lesson while entertaining any adults watching as well.

It's a movie so strange that Rita Ora popping up in a bizarre cameo as a scientist wouldn't even crack a list of the top ten weirdest things about it.

The makers of Pokémon: Detective Pikachu have done something wise, which is to create a film version of the media/toy franchise that is mostly accessible even to those of us who have zero connection to the phenomenon that is Pokémon.

[T]he experience isn't so much linear as it is downright circuitous, stranding its nuggets of fuzzy joy in a script that fails to blend world-building with forward momentum.

I am extremely bored by this Rob Letterman Pokémon film adapted by the 'Detective Pikachu' video game. [Full review in Spanish]

Pays service to the Pokémon fan base but it's Ryan Reynolds Pikachu that injects the fun.

Detective Pikachu relies so heavily on fan recognition that it doesn't take enough time to flesh out the plot or make their characters people we want stick around with.

Pokémon Detective Pikachu is incredibly nutty, a bit bonkers and all kinds of fun, even for someone like me with no connection to its base entertainment universe.

I can't remember the last time I was so disinterested in a film.

This movie was a waste of time.

This is a film rooted in a ludicrous concept that doesn't just work, but excels because of the amount of heart that has gone into making it. It's earnest, endearing, and well worth a Pika.

It's just nice, it's a nice pleasant thing. I think if you yourself have Pokemon nostalgia you'll probably get some enjoyment out of this, just don't expect to be surprised by the plot.

Detective Pikachu is a fun family movie that can be enjoyed by many. It's a love letter to the world of Pokémon and easily the best video game movie made.

Detective Pikachu wears its influences on its sleeve, and has the sensibilities of a Stephen Spielberg-produced picture.

Solid family fun.

Smart, imaginative and sweet, Detective Pikachu offers something for everyone.

Even though Pokemon implores you to "catch 'em all," this is one you're going to want to release back into the wild.

I found this weirdly diverting... It's a counterintuitive fit for this character, and I kind of liked that about it.

A seriously weird and heartfelt film jam-packed with action and chock full of Pokemon - what more could you ask for?
