This is a fun, magical, and appealing movie that kids will love.

A much more intense action vehicle for hero Ash Ketchum and his band of pocket monster trainers than its leaden, sometimes claustrophobic predecessor.

A few set-pieces, though, do stand out: weird, almost entirely spherical fish swimming in the water, a boat crashing down hundreds of steps, and a jagged 'chicken' lit up by golden electric energy are certainly transfixing.

Lesson of the day: Pokémon are more attuned to nature, but one human can make a difference.

Pikachu has very little to do with the plot, so die-hard fans may be disappointed. On the other hand, I daresay die-hard fans could not possibly be discriminating enough to notice, since most of them are still in diapers.

As in the first movie, the animation here is chintzy and almost amateurish, although fans of the TV show could hardly expect more.

Total, there were maybe three references in the dialogue that an adult might find clever or cute.
