Film Title: Pokémon Detective Pikachu
Film Year: 2019
Jason Review: I give this Schroeders Down. If you put Pikachu in a box with a vial of poison it occupies a superposition of both up and down until you open it and see the act of observation forces the position to collapse. I have observed the contents of the box and Pikachu is dead this time.
Jon Review: If the title were accurate it would be "Pikachu in a Detective Hat: The Movie". If this were Shane Black's Detective Pikachu I'm on board but this poorly characterized improv comedy version of a detective movie that can't hold a consistent style is not what I want.
Mack Review: Detective Pikachu and Tim wander through the film and never actually figure anything out for themselves. The acting isn't to my liking and tonally its inconsistent.
