Despite still missing a week for its release, Warner Bros. Pictures has seen fit to end the embargo of critics that weighed on Pokémon: Detective Pikachu. The result? 74% in Rotten Tomatoes and 50% in Metacritic. In other words, she liked it but not so much to cheer her.
Between the negative and the positive notes there is everything from a lament for a work in post-production effects improbable to praise for the funny point that Ryan Reynolds puts to His role, although perhaps a message that has been repeated is the following: “too childish for adults and a complex mess for the little ones”, which highlights ScreenCrush in its review. Also, it has been quite common to find warnings that perhaps the tape does not take into account as it should to those who are not knowledgeable of the Pokémon universe.
In any case, the final verdict as usual will be the public and the box office. At the moment the estimates of Box Office Pro bet on a first weekend of premiere in the United States of 82 million dollars in revenue, 250 million dollars once it concludes its pass through the cinemas.
