Pacific Rim

Sound & Vision Magazine
30 January 2014
  • Excerpt: In Pacific Rim, Kaiju (gesundheit) are popping up all over, emerging from a rift in the ocean floor and stomping all over the biggest cities around the Pacific. To counter the looming apocalypse, mankind has built mechanical monsters of its own, mechas known as Jaegers. Jaeger means hunter in German, but while my first encounter with a Jaeger was a schnitzel, these Jaegers are huge machines, matching the size and strength of the Kaiju.

  • Excerpt: Guillermo del Toro's new film is very much the product of a vivid imagination, though one that wouldn't have been possible without an enormous financial investment. Watching this intriguing but overstuffed vision, of man-powered robots doing battle with alien creatures that slip into our world via a breach somewhere beneath the Pacific Ocean, I was reminded of all the times I used to step into my cousin's basement-cum-playroom and beheld, with a mixture of revulsion and...

  • Excerpt: The Film "We can either sit here and do nothing or grab those flare guns and do something really stupid." If you've been wondering why Charlie Hunnam was picked for 50 Shades of Grey , check out Pacific Rim . If you've been wondering why Charlie Hunnam dropped out of 50 Shades of Grey , check out Pacific Rim . The actor can hold his own next to monsters, robots and even director Guillermo del Toro. Don't get me wrong, though; Pacific Rim isn't exactly rocket science.

  • Conclusion: Pacific Rim is the effects and action feast advertised, but with slightly more story and human characters you'd expect. Guillermo del Toro's futuristic spectacle is always watchable and sometimes kind of fun, but never any better than its dumb giant robots vs. giant aliens premise allows it to be.

Pacific Rim (Blu-ray)

DVD Verdict
15 October 2013
  • Excerpt: If ever there was a movie that could transport me back to my nine-year-old self and ignite my imagination it was Guillermo del Toro's massive sci-fi bonanza, Pacific Rim . Then again, I don't know how fun it would be to be nine again, because…you know, school sucks. Earth is under attack. Towering alien monsters called Kaiju are pouring through an inter-dimensional rift deep within the Pacific Ocean.

Pacific Rim - 3D

High-Def Digest
14 October 2013
  • Conclusion: Thank you, Guillermo del Toro and Warner Brothers for delivering my latest and greatest demo disc. I'll proudly play the opening 17 minutes of 'Pacific Rim' to show off my system. I was originally a disbeliever of del Toro's ability to create a worthwhile monster/robot punch 'em up blockbuster, but I had to eat crow when it proved to be as all-out entertaining as it is. The story is solid fun and it's told through fantastic set pieces and top-notch CG effects.

  • Conclusion: Pacific Rim . With that said, Warner Bros.' Blu-ray combo pack swings for the fences, serving up a reference quality A/V presentation and a nice assortment of special features...and just a few short months after its theatrical run, too. It's Recommended for those who don't mind eye candy with extra cheese. What Do You Think?

Pacific Rim 3D Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
10 October 2013
  • Summary: There is a time and a place for a frank but thoughtful critique of a veteran filmmaker's love letter to genre cinema. There's also a time and a place to geek out, cast off adulthood, fully embrace the rock-em sock-em joy of a wildly entertaining and ludicrously action-packed summer spectacle, and laugh, clap and cheer like a ten-year-old fanboy attending his first Comic-Con; and it's here and now.
