Flawless CGI, a respectful treatment to the source material, a story that resonates to fans and non fans alike and a perfect cast makes for one entertaining movie and that’s pretty much the summary of Detective Pikachu. I would really love to see Ryan Reynolds reprise the role. The twist at the end was super cool, I’m telling you. I had so much fun. This is how you do a live action adaptation. 

All in all Deadpool 2 was very consistent with the first movie, and was super entertaining with the script and the amazing action sequences. But it stopped short of being great when it refused to take itself seriously, even for a bit. And if you treat an entire movie as a joke, it gets monotonous after a while, and you lose sight of why you were rooting for it in the first place. Having said all that, Deadpool was still a solid addition to the franchise and managed to correct some booboos made by the Wolverine Origins movie in the post credits. Hopefully, next time, there would be a better balance of humor and seriousness to make Deadpool the compelling hero he is in the comic books. 

All in all, director Patrick Hughes delivered on one very entertaining movie. He chose his actors well and used them to make the film larger than life. Kudos to writer Tim O’ Connor as well for coming up with a story and script that keeps the audience on their toes. Its true that this was not the first time that Ryan Reynolds or Samuel L. Jackson played a similar role but when they come together, its seriously lit.
