Detective Pikachu isn’t a perfect film, and has enough story/pacing stumbles to hold it back from something greater. Don’t let that hold you back, however, as there’s more than enough humor, action, and heart to smooth out the bumps. The world they created is both fun and endearing. The attention to detail, along with strong performances pull you into the film almost instantly. When the story falters, the engaging world/characters keep the smile on your face.

Kids in the audience absolutely went nuts for it and their energy fed to everyone else. As such, Detective Pikachu makes for an excellent family film that offers a little bit of something for everyone to enjoy. While it’s definitely not for everyone, ultimately, I left the theater feeling eager to dive back into the Pokémon world they’d created.
