Ok so here we go! With so much flack this film has received since the teaser trailer of a blue Will Smith. I was not only not looking for much, but had a film critic in training with me, my 8 year old daughter. Now, unlike her I grew up seeing the animated original ..
Full Disclosure: Before this movie, I’d only seen Pikachu in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
