Ryan Reynolds is a damn nut. But sadly I won't be seeing this film due to the main lead cast.

The video elaborates on the immense undertaking Reynolds underwent to fully immerse himself in the role of Pikachu, going so far as "forgetting" his wife and children, attempting to drop an unhealthy amount of weight, and even living low to the ground.

Somehow, I doubt they have quite grasped the character traits we associate with that jovial yellow mouse.

Certainly, a disdain for your own kin would explain the lack of familial yearnings on the part of Ash's longstanding companion, though that barely explains this actor's other habits.

In which sense? I don't quite get it, my bad.
1-Because of the main lead cast (one or more actors?), I won't watch the movie.
or
2-I won't watch this movie just for its main lead cast (one or more actors?).

Why? Is there some controversy around the kid? Or is it because he's bl- not Japanese?

Reynolds is such a smart ass. I swear, this movie has a lot of potential, but I have a feeling the mild swearing and realistic renderings of all the Pokémon is probably gonna kill this movie. That would be a real shame, because it's very faithful to the original game.

I guess the weight loss is a reference to how light Pikachu must be, and living low to the ground refers to how Pikachus walk around on all fours.

If he played the games he might've realized that there's a good chance Detective Pikachu has a wife Smile

RR stated Pikachu is just some yellow guy... Man, this quote is such an underrated gem.

I don't like the actor that is playing the kid. I saw him in the last Jurassic Park movie and I was just...WHY??? '
If there is one thing I cannot stand is characters that are type-casted as whinny, always screaming...weaklings. I'm sure if I saw him in another film that was more serious. But this is just going to be another disappointment for as he's again type-casted again in a similar role. Other than that the animation of this film looks great.
