Thoroughly Surprised!! :)
My expectations was quite low going into the movie; as I was not quite sure whether Ryan Reynolds can pull off the speaking voice of Pikachu... but Boy was i wrong! The movie started off slow, and its is mainly because of the world building and introduction of the characters, Pokemon fans will be very happy to see all their favourite Pokemon finally in live-action. However once the movie builds up its pace, it never lets up. Great pacing in the 2nd and 3rd act, in fact this is one of the best 3rd acts of any movies I have seen this year. I was not very impressed with some of the acting, but the plot, visuals, creatures and twists saved the movie and made it extremely touching and suitable for all ages. This is a movie that will make you smile leaving the theater. :)

pleasantly surprised
Was pleasantly surprised when I watched this movie. Exceeded my expectations of a ‘childhood cartoon’. Am glad I caught this show for sure! Some scenes were pretty hilarious! Worth catching!

Good movie
This is a great movie to watch. But beware. Nerds & otaku from surrounding will be like naming all the pokemons when it flashes on screen. As annoying as peenoise sounds.

Amazing CGI
Although the acting and plot development was lacking at some points, overall a very good movie for Pokémon fans. The Pokémon CGI was amazing.

Childhood throwback
The storyline and acting was ok, but Ryan Reynold’s detective pikachu was so hilarious that we could not stop laughing. The pokemons in the movie are exactly what I envisioned my childhood pokemons from the games to look like. A worthwhile family film that really brings the pokemons i grew up with into real life.

Kid's Movie
Wasn't what I expected, the storyline to me didn't really add up or make any sense. Little pokemon battles and the only plus point was the cute pokemons.

Painful to watch
A movie with no plot whatsoever, irrational and dumb heroes (and villains), lacking depth and brimmed with ugly animations. Don't think the format of action movie was adapted to pokemon. Barely any reference to the universe appart from having monsters indeed called Pokemons in there.
