Monster Attacke

Ein Monster vs. Roboter Abenteuer, dass ich 100 Mal anschauen könnte! Nur der Umstand, dass ich als Videothekar auch noch andere Filme sehen muss, verhindert das! Wie bei einer gewissen Sternen-Saga wird hier ein an sich simples Subjekt mit Technologie aufgeblasen. Der Mehrwert: Die überkandidelten Action Szenen! In einer schrecklichen Zukunft kommen Monster so gross wie Häuser direkt aus dem Schlund der Hölle. Jahre, bevor die Handlung einsetzt, attackierten die Wesen uns Menschen und das Militär war machtlos. Die Menschheit konstruierte deshalb riesenhafte Roboter mit einer Technologie, die für ein einzelnes Gehirn zu komplex ist. Die Roboter heissen Jaegers, die Monster Kaiju, wobei sich die Biester mit der Zeit entwickelten - so stark und gross wurden, dass der Sieg zum Greifen nahe s...

"Pacific Rim" by Yojimbo

A race of hostile aliens are sending gigantic creatures through a dimensional rift to terrorise the people of Earth, prompting the world's military to create giant robotic fighting machines to combat the threat. The premise of Pacific Rim sounds like the usual Michael Bay style Hollywood drivel, but I have long been a fan of Guillermo Del Toro's work and so expected something altogether darker in tone and more intelligent than the usual fare. I was wrong. Quite why he got involved in this project I'm not sure, but this film ticks every one of the boxes of the bone-headed blockbuster and no more. True, Del Toro;s keen eye for visual splendour is evident during the spectacular CGI robot versus Godzilla style smackdowns, and during these sequences my inner small boy couldn't help being swept...

Pacific Rim review

Starts of strong then somewhat fizzles in the overextended fight sequences and albeit cheesy ending. A film which mostly combines elements of Tron, Transformers, Cloverfield, Godzilla and a souped up Real Steel. The movies focuses on the skilled pilot Raleigh Becket, talented rookie Mako Mori, and the kindhearted leader in Stacker Pentecost:

It had sufficient character build-up/development, relentless action mixed with drama about the apocalypse/father and son/dealing with the past, believable special effects (IMAX 3D enhances it and the balls moving after a Jaeger crashes into the building thrown by a Jaeger was a nice touch), onscreen chemistry with Hunnam and Kikuchi, Elba was impressive) good comic timing in a dire situation and a pumped-up soundtrack. It's minor weak-point wa...

An Experience of Shear Total Enjoyment

From watching the trailers, I expected massive action and spectacle. And you know what? I got exactly that on the highest level. 'Pacific Rim' has given me the most fun 'big summer movie' experiences I've had all year. Here the action and CG effects are executed masterfully. Each fight is a rollicking, cheer-worthy effort. I was on edge in anticipation and my excitement was sustained through the whole film. The meticulous attention to detail in the effects work gives the Kaiju, Jaegers, and their real-world surroundings a sense of size and weight. Obviously, these areas are where I give the highest praise, but the rest is no less than par. I feel that the story and human characters are serviceable for what type of film this is. They are in no way bad. I was still entertained wi...

Super Robot Action Lacks the Human Element

I had high hopes for Pacific Rim - ever since I first heard about the premise I was amped. Guillermo del Toro knows action (the Hellboy movies were well done) and also knows character and story (Pan's Labyrinth and Devil's Backbone). I was hoping he would bring those two points together and create a big-budget extravaganza that actually delivered on the dramatic department as well. As much I wanted Pacific Rim to be great, he hit the action out of the ballpark but fell short in the other departments.

If you like sci-fi action, I cannot think of a better film that has come along than Pacific Rim for delivering a home run. The giant monsters (Kaiju as they are known) and giant robots (Jaeger) are both extremely well designed and to see the two duke it out is celebration for a major nerdg...

LOUD NOISES (in 3D)

Spoilers

This was such a 'sigh' movie. I call it that, because it was exactly what I did when it ended. It just wasn't anything original.
I am tired of Hollywood producing junk after junk with the same premise and a different location.

I will go in-depth about the flaws in this movie.
Every character in this movie is bland and stereotypical. NO ONE is new.
It has everything. The main character who suffered something tragic, fell from grace, but finds the will within ten minutes to stand back up again. The crazy scientist who has a German name and types on the computer keyboard like he is angry about something. The obsessive nerd with the whiny voice (Charlie Day), who desperately wants to see a monster for who knows why and regrets it the second he sees one. And the cool black gu...

Review: Pacific Rim

In the dead center of an arguably successful summer for big-budget action films, Guillermo del Toro breaks through the gates presenting us with his highly anticipated monster flick, Pacific Rim. Audiences are loving this film and critically it is doing pretty well (rotten tomatoes has it at 72%), so I went into Pacific Rim slightly skeptical about certain notes but mostly excited, being that I think the world of del Toro as a director. My thoughts: I've seen better films this summer, and I've seen much worse films this summer. To me, Pacific Rim is purely empty calories - nothing more, nothing less. It's great fun while it lasts, but when it's over, you're likely to forget all about it until the blu-ray comes rolling along.

A few years into the future, a portal opens from deep beneath...

A Thrill Ride of a Movie

In the middle of a summer of disappointment Pacific Rim is the movie that could revive things. And I don’t mean that things need to be revived financially; this summer has been very lucrative, record setting even. It’s just that most of the other “summer flicks” I’ve seen have been either underwhelming (Iron Man 3, Now You See Me,) or just lame (Star Trek into Darkness, Man of Steel.) With the exception of Fast 6, Pacific Rim was the first “popcorn” flick to deliver in any major way.

Popcorn blockbusters seem like they would be so easy to make. All you need is some compelling characters, a mildly interesting concept and explosions; yet so many movies fail in this respect. Hollywood is trying so hard to remake The Dark Knight that they forget to make their movies fun. Director Gui...
