Excerpt: This one is definitely made for Big large screen Tv with either a Good Soundbar or a good surround system, it's giant monsters vs giant robots, Raleigh (Charlie Hunnam) who plays Jax on the Sons of Anarchy Tv show, also Ron Perlman from SOA, I get the feeling Jax just stepped into the future, he has that same stiff feeling of how he acts on the show, but it works there, not quite as well for this one, in this Film, he and his brother are pilots of these super Robots that...
Excerpt: A friend of mine said that “Nobody is into monster movies anymore.” To me that’s a mixed statement that neither false or true because while monster fighting movies are quite as trendy as they were years ago but given the new technology that can bring these grand beast to life, there is a bit of a resurgence that’s come up.
Excerpt: 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.
Summary: This movie has better action then transformers I just have to say that. When giant 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.
Excerpt: Film heeft mij aangenaam verrast moet ik zeggen. Nu ben ik wel een SF-fan maar ik had mijn bedenkingen. Zeer goed gemaakt, spannend en vol actie. Het is een soort Transformerachtige film waarbij de Transformers door mensen bediend worden. Apart gevonden verhaallijn maar daarom niet minder vermakelijk. Gezien het einde kunnen we er bijna zeker van zijn dat er geen vervolgfim komt maar je weet nooit.
Excerpt: Video: This is a visually rich and dynamic movie, with lots of colors and textures. The sets are very detailed and often expansive. A lot of the battles are very dark and rainy, but lots of colorful elements are added. The PQ on the Blu-ray disc faithfully preserves this color and detail. This is definately reference quality material. Audio: Dialog is well reproduced. Ambient sounds are present, and surrounds are well utilized.
Excellent popcorner with awesome battle sequences.

Excerpt: I definitely agree with Mr.markster's review above. What held me back from giving it a 5 was that the acting was questionable (no surprise) and the plot was indeed boring at times. At one point the theme sequence reminded me of Top Gun. As a plot the movie deserved a 3 or 3.5. The battle sequences were a solid 5 and both the audio and video was an unquestionable 5. If you are a fan of LFE tracks, then this movie is amongst the best out there.
