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?

While by no means perfect, 'Pokemon Detective Pikachu' can nevertheless comfortably lay claim to being the best videogame adaptation ever made.

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu is a rather silly idea in conception, but in execution, it's a pretty compelling tale that features plenty of twists and turns, and well-rendered CGI.

[T]he Rob Letterman-directed (Monsters vs. Aliens) film is a slow neo-noir that is more interested in telling a straight mystery that just so happens to feature mythical creatures than in being an action epic.

It's just these little touches of maximum effort (oops, wrong Ryan Reynolds movie!) that make Detective Pikachu as strong as it is-that, and, of course, Ryan Reynolds' energetic, generous voice acting.

The filmmakers leave a lot on the table, failing to use its genre to its fullest potential.

DETECTIVE PIKACHU has some fun moments and good elements, but mostly it's a messy movie that is never really engaging or as fun as it should be.

This is basically a buddy film. Buddies in which one is human and the other is an animated character.

Detective Pikachu is so much more than the sum of its parts, a complete delight, and there is absolutely nobody who will leave this movie feeling anything other than joy.

I was never bored. It's so much better than it should have been, but it's not as great as it could have been.

Pokémon Detective Pikachu is a vibrant bundle of joy that manages to be both a good Pokémon movie and a great film based on a videogame. The latter might not mean much, but it is definitely a step in the right direction.

Pokémon Detective Pikachu tells a story that features Pokémon, rather than a story about Pokémon, meaning that moments of fan service are appreciated, whilst terrific moments of personality are what drives the film.

If you are a fan and know the Pokemon world and all its creatures then you will love this movie.

Make no mistake: a species that has to be "caught" before being deployed into a fighting arena to duel its own kind is not a "partner." It's a slave.

Despite its missteps, Detective Pikachu still manages to take viewers on an entertaining, amusing journey.

In terms of converting movie fans, Detective Pikachu isn't gonna catch 'em all.

Detective Pikachu is frustratingly more forgettable than the trailers suggested while still offering a captivating visual landscape. This may be the best video game adaptation ever made, but that's like being called "the most listenable Pitbull song."

Non-Pokémon fans lured in by Reynolds' involvement would do well to note the film's PG rating.
