Pacific Rim

Item Details

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot and an untested trainee, who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

The only good thing about this movie was Charlie Hunnam.

This is a movie that will leave you with questions, including: why don't they just use nuclear warheads on the kaiju? Why is only one person interested in where they come from, and why they're here? Why robots, for heaven's sake? And then, if you have a sense of humour, you will realize: I am watching a monsters versus giant robots movie. If you want these two things in a single film, logical compromises have to be made. The action doesn't leave much time for characterization, but what there is seems to be a salute to monster films of the past. The film's vision is compelling enough to make one believe that if we ever DO have to construct giant, ass-kicking robots, we are half way to their realization. Be assured, this is a dumb movie made by very smart people.

not very good, boring story

del Toro has done some wonderful movies, this just isn't one of them!

Like someone said: it is amazing to be able to see a realistic movie with such scale in this lifetime! It should get an Oscar for its visual effects and cinematography! It has fantastic storyline that got audience excited to a higher boiling point one after another. Unfortunately it did not bode well with North America audience, for some unknown reason. In my 2 cents of opinion, it is supposed to do much better than any of the 'transformers' movies in box office and in critics' circle. There were some heart-felt moments about death, brothers', father-children relationship, I am not sure why other comments said this is just a popcorn summer flicks. It is very unusual to see a strong black character/leader, a strong female lead depicted in a movie with a Mexican director. I am so glad all were involved in such visionary project completed in this lifetime.

As terrible as this movie is, as a sci-fi junky, I couldn’t help but finish it. In order to enjoy this movie I would suggest that you turn off your brain and everyone else who may be watching you and expect very very little. You then may be able to get through this movie.

This is a terrible movie about Giant robots, who fight evil sea monsters that try to take over the world for no reason.

Epicness, epic, with a hint of awesome. This film is so epic you will watch it saying "epic" your eyes will send messages to your brain that say epicness to the max. Ever seen anything more epic? Well it better be this, because this is epicness to the max. Imagine some one taking all the Pacific Rim in the world and melting it down to awesome, and then turn it in to a cup or Goblet for epicness, you then pour the liquid awesomeness and epicness and make it in to a magnificent cup, you then pour every epic made while this cup was created, you then pour it in to this cup and give it to Del Toro, and you get this epicness of a movie. This movie will want you to have more epicness in your life, and this epic of a movie will help you take care of 99.9999 % of that need for awsomeness. 'Nuff said.

Dr. Newton Geiszler: Fortune favors the brave, dude. Stacker Pentecost: Today. Today... At the edge of our hope, at the end of our time, we have chosen not only to believe in ourselves, but in each other. Today there is not a man nor woman in here that shall stand alone. Not today. Today we face the monsters that are at our door and bring the fight to them. Today, we are cancelling the apocalypse! Raleigh Becket: This is worth fighting for. We don't have to just obey him. Mako Mori: It's not obedience, Mr. Beckett; it's respect.
