As all Pokémon fans will remember, some time ago we informed you that Detective Pikachu would have a movie . This film will be inspired by the video game of the same name by Nintendo 3DS.
The news was initially taken with some skepticism by a large part of the fans, since it is no secret that most videogame-based movies are often quite bad, with rather questionable adaptations such as Street Fighter, Doom or Resident Evil to put Some examples. Fortunately, it seems that Pokémon: Detective Pikachu is about to break that trend.
Recently, a projection of the film was made and although it is still in the process of postproduction, the first reactions seem very positive . According to a report by SuperBroMovies , sources have revealed that the film is “full of easter eggs, good performances and a great script” , which have impressed the audience, despite being unfinished.
The report goes on to say that Ryan Reynolds , who plays Pikachu in the film, stands out with his ” usual charm “, shining with his own light; The chemistry between Reynolds and Justice Smith (Tim Goodman in the film) has also been praised. On the other hand, although it has not yet been finished, it is said that the CGI is “very well done”, and that Pikachu and the gang acquire a “hyper-realistic” appearance similar to the character of Rocket Racoon in the Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy .
It seems that fans of Pokémon and especially Pikachu are in luck, since everything seems to indicate that this is a good movie that will make us enjoy and that will be quite faithful and well recreated.
