Pacific Rim

PG-13| 2 hr. 11 min.

Plot Summary
Long ago, legions of monstrous creatures called Kaiju arose from the sea, bringing with them all-consuming war. To fight the Kaiju, mankind developed giant robots called Jaegers, designed to be piloted by two humans locked together in a neural bridge. However, even the Jaegers are not enough to defeat the Kaiju, and humanity is on the verge of defeat. Mankind's last hope now lies with a washed-up ex-pilot (Charlie Hunnam), an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) and an old, obsolete Jaeger.

  • What pulls us over the rough spots is the mind meld between del Toro the artist and the child inside him. They both want to astonish us. Geeks everywhere, salute. show more

  • If this is the best we can do in terms of movies - if something like this can speak to the soul of audiences - maybe we should just turn over the cameras and the equipment to the alien dinosaurs and see what they come up with. show more

  • "Could be worse" isn't exactly a ringing endorsement of Pacific Rim, but my head is still ringing, and hurting, from long stretches of this aliens vs. robots extravaganza that are no better than the worst brain-pounders of the genre. show more

    The old B&W films run circles around this piece of garbage. Low I.Q. s can get into this crap.

    Was this a movie or live-action Anime? The story line sucks and character development is lacking. Tried to use FX to replace poor acting but failed in both areas. I WANT A REFUND!!!!

    Possibly the best movie I have ever seen - and I\'m being completely serious. It is an over-the-top blast of excitement- but that\'s what a movie is for. What really astounded me was the lack of obvious cliches while holding true to the old kaiju movies. If you haven\'t seen this yet - go! Now!
