Detective Pikachu early reactions show that it's not just Pokémon fans who'll love it

Detective Pikachu is set to be one of the weirdest blockbusters this year.

The first live-action Pokémon movie takes place in a film noir world, where Pikachu (Ryan Reynolds) teams up with a human teenager (Justice Smith) to solve a very twisty case.

But can a live-action Pokémon movie actually work? Will we be able to get over the fact that Pikachu now shares a voice with Deadpool?

Well, the first reactions are in from the folks lucky enough to attend special preview screenings, and it looks like Detective Pikachu is going to be a hit.

Almost universally positive social media posts reveal that the film is not just for diehard Pokémon fans, and will appeal to those of us who don't know our Psyducks from our Jigglypuffs.

Ryan Reynolds is singled out for praise, and the general feeling is that the movie is just as crazy as we expected it to be – but somehow works.

Though the first footage of photorealistic Pokémon and an unnervingly furry Pikachu may have been a little discombobulating for some fans, it looks like we'll be able to put this behind us to enjoy a proper big screen tribute to the iconic pocket monsters.

It's already been revealed that the movie is getting a sequel, and we'll also be getting a live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie too.
