Dir. Rob Letterman. 2019, 104 mins. DCP. With Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, Ken Watanabe. In the first live-action Pokémon movie, a teenage boy teams up with a strange Pikachu to investigate the disappearance of his father. Pikachu, a supremely cute CGI yellow furball, is played by Ryan Reynolds in a hilarious big-hearted performance that is both playful and believable (parents who have seen Reynolds as Deadpool will get a kick out of this PG-rated role). The growing friendship and trust between Pikachu and the boy Tim are at the emotional core of the movie, but the weird wonderful world of hundreds of Pokémon just living their lives offers another level of pleasure.
