Plot Outline:

When monstrous creatures from the sea dubbed Kaiju attack, it pushes the human race to the edge of annihilation. Countering the force with massive robots known as Jaegers, two human pilots linked by a neural bridge take on the Kaiju. Yet even this force seems to be no match, and after years of fighting it comes down to a washed-up pilot, an untested rookie and an aged Jaeger to stand up for humanity. -- Chris Kavan

A lot better then I expected it to be, "Pacific Rim" is basically a fun big budget monster movie with state of the art special effects. Gets a bit too goofy at times, but it is always consistently better than the far inferior, but similar, "Transformers" movies.

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...

rocky had great dialogue it was character driven.
to mention it alongside this film is a sin lol

pacific rim was robots v aliens reminded me of cowboys v aliens , its entertainment but its silly.
not a terrible film but not very good either, though i think kids would love it
i especially liked the beach scene with the guy with the metal detector and suddenly is surprised by the big robot that comes crashing down in front of him. did he not hear that chunk of metal first lol
sort of sums up the whole movie really.

You guys are making me laugh. Did we see Battleship, Transformers, or hell...even ROCKY for the dialogue? No. We see movies like this for the action. Pacific Rim wasn't a trash movie. It had a decent storyline and plenty of what made us fill the seats in the theatre- giant robots fighting giant aliens. It was not Shakespeare, so quit expecting it to win Oscars.

One of my most anticipated movies of the year - I was a bit let down myself. Special effects were great - plot and character just not so much. I was expecting more.

Great trailer.  Looks like gigantic Real Steel crossed with Cloverfield/Godzilla.  I just hope it would be so much better than the films I mentioned since the director is talented and a gifted storyteller.
