Detective Pikachu Review

My first novella, City of Kaiju, is finally out! Available through Amazon and Books2Read. You can see a preview of the very first chapter here. Help support a fresh new author with a fantastic read this spring season.

In 2006 or so, a fan made live action trailer for Pokemon came out called Pokemon Apokelypse. It was disguised as a legitimate trailer that made waves across the community. It was darker, edgier, violent, explicit, ugly, and it certainly didn’t feel like a Pokemon film. It solidified my fear of a live action Pokemon adaptation. How could anyone support the idea of a live action Pokemon movie after seeing that?

Fast forward about a decade later and we get our first live action movie. Detective Pikachu, based on a spinoff title. Seeing the trailer, I had an inkling it hope. It might very well be a good adaptation. The Pokemon look as they should, it was funny and overall, it felt like a Pokemon movie. After seeing it, I can say for certain that this may be one of the best game adaptations in, maybe ever.

Let’s crack this case, shall we?

Whoo boy. Do I have a review for you. I’m likely going to spend the next thousand words gushing about how epic this movie was and how it exceeded all expectations. Like, this would forever be the gold standard of superhero movies and I honestly don’t know how Marvel Studios, or really, anyone, can top this. So let’s just get right into it.

This won’t spoil the ending, but will contain spoilers nonetheless. Deaths and the like will be omitted, but I will mention the big battle at the end. Just a heads up.
