Harland Banks’s review published on Letterboxd:
I can see why people like Detective Pikachu but personally there was nothing I found very intriguing or memorable about the story. I loved the visuals and the character designs were incredible but the acting was below subpar for the most part and the story was just boring. I will say the film showed some heart at times and it does have it's entertaining moments. I will say the film delivers on some of its promises like the movie is filled with twist after twist the problem is they aren't very interesting and some are just predictable, the ending is super corny and so is most of the comedy. I will give this movie a second shot though and write a more detailed review afterwards.
