Because some readers have asked me, I come back with movie reviews. I’m going to start with Pokemón Detective Pikachu, the first live-action adaptation of this franchise.
I went with my kids to watch the movie and well they are experts in the subject, they have played Pokemon video games since boys, they were very excited to watch it.
In this film we can see a world where Pokemon coexists with humans, each person has their partner Pokemon and the design of each of them is amazing.
According to my children, the film has many references to the video game. In the film, Pikachu is the only one who speaks and has the voice of the irreverent Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and well if he says about two or three up-pitched jokes, but it’s very difficult to understand them.
The yellow Pokemon, everyone’s favorite, is adorable, looks like a living stuffed animal and travels on Justice Smith’s shoulder with whom he makes a very good match.
I didn’t expect to see Omar Chaparro perform, my son had told me that the actor would participate in this film, but I always thought that giving his voice to a character (I hadn’t seen the trailer).
The Mexican actor appears as Sebastian, coach of a Charizad, a kind of Pokemon appearing in the Pokemon Red and Blue videogames.
Check out my interview with Omar Chaparro for the promotion of No Manches Frida 2.
Omar Chaparro has been heavily criticized for this role, but you don’t have to be so hard, for me, that’s fine.
Pokemon Detective Pikachu, is it for kids?
The film is RATED PG, it’s about fantasy, adventure, action and comedy.
There are some scenes of violence, fights between Pokemones, also other Poket monsters that become aggressive and attack; very young children might be frightened. That already depends on how sensitive your child is.
They perform: Ryan Reynolds, Suki Waterhouse, Kathryn Newton, Bill Nighy, Karan Soni, Rob Delaney, Justice Smith, Ken Watanabe, Rita Ora, Chris Geere, Omar Chaparro, Jacqueline Ramnarine, Kadiff Kirwan.
