Pacific Rim is a 2013 American monster film directed by Guillermo del Toro.
When monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes - a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) - 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.
Why it Rocks
- The film's realistic and believable set up of how giant monsters (Kaijus) came into our world and how we built giant robots to go against them.
- The film's kinetic fight scenes that is essentially Transformers-meets-Godzilla.
- The amazing, highly-detailed/hyper-realistic designs of the robots and the giant beasts they battle.
- Guillermo del Toro, the director of the film, made a conscious design to have all the creatures in the film move slower to show every impact.
- The film's Kajiu designs were personally designed by master of creating monsters, Guillermo del Toro.
- The film's generic acting and monster film cliches.
- Some characters can be unlikable.
- The film didn't make a lot of money in the box office.
- The sequel that followed was not well received and deemed unnecessary, as this film didn't hint any sequel nor needed a sequel.
