Decent sales, will definitely pull a profit. I'll certainly rent it when it comes out in redbox. Ryan Reynolds makes it worth a try.

I would have been very much surprised if this one didn't turn out to be successful. The Pokemon name alone is enough to attract a large number of people, and when the trailer had such a positive response from outside the franchise's normal demographic it was bound to do very well.

I'm actually heading to the cinema to see it some time next week, I think it looks pretty decent and should be a fun film

Eh, the metascore is still only 52. One slightly less awful movie doesn't mean things are going to change.

I don't think the use of metacritic for this movie is wholeheartedly justifiable when you got critics who panned it for not knowing some of the Pokémons.

Audiences seem to like it and I really wouldn't listen to critics on this type of movie. Some of the critiques were quite frankly hilarious
