ODEON says...
Discover an adorable but electrifying hero! 

The story begins when ace private eye Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry's former Pokemon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. 

Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. 

Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City - a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokemon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world - they encounter a diverse cast of Pokemon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokemon universe.

BRILLIANT! Blew me away. I laughed (a lot), I cried and laughed some more. The special effects were awesome and the story line kept me guessing. Really enjoyed it right up to the last minute (which was the only downer without giving spoilers)

Expected more.

Considering it is Mr Deadpool, I expected more humour from this. The first half is very funny indeed but it dips in the middle and never really gets the pace back. A shame because it could have been so much more. Not bad though.

Good cinema for family

One of the best Movie Games I have seen so far in comparison to others like Assassin's creed and Prince of Persia. This one was well made and the CGI was amazingly done, you could tell that there was a lot of care and a lot of attention to detail with each of the Pokemon characters including the rigging and design. Loved the movie a lot and it encouraged my brother to want to play Pokemon games, at first I was unsure given how previous games were made into films that flopped however this was worth the wait thank you for making it. Thank you actors and makers it made my day
