Pokémon is currently the highest-grossing media franchise in history. It has generated over 90 billion USD in revenue and it’s set to add another few hundred million in coming weeks. POKÉMON Detective Pikachu is out in movie theaters this week. Is it worth the watch?
It all started in 2008 with Iron Man and 22 movies later, we’re in the Endgame now in April 2019. Marvel Studios blew us away with Avengers: Infinity War one year ago. I left the theatre wondering how they would top that movie. Infinity War was the best we had seen so far. The Russo brothers did it yet again. Endgame gave us everything we wanted, and more.
Before you read on, this review contains spoilers. It is my personal opinion that this type of movie is best experienced with an empty mind. Before watching it for the first time, it’s best to not look into it too much, maybe watch the trailers and that’s it. You have been warned.
