Pokemon fans all around the world are hoping that Detective Pikachu can give us the first great video game movie. While we keep our fingers and toes crossed, at least one Hollywood heavyweight has weighed in on the film, and his impressions are extremely positive. Kong: Skull Island Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts has seen the film, and here's what he had to say.

A wild JORD appeared! #DetectivePikachu uses MIND BLOWN. It’s super effective!

The video game curse is broken.

Anytime a POKÉMON is on screen, you’re mesmerized by a charisma reminiscent of watching Tony Stark tinker with robots in IRON MAN.

Also, PSYDUCK steals the movie!

That is certainly some very high praise, especially when you consider how big of a fan Jordan Vogt-Roberts is of video games! Hopefully the rest of us will feel the same when we see Detective Pikachu in a few weeks.
