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.
Excerpt: I have to be honest, I didn’t love Pacific Rim when I first saw it. It’s not that I thought it was bad, but as a child of anime, my expectations were really high. I thought the mech design could have been stronger, and the main character played by Charlie Hunnam was just awful. Part of me wished I was watching Evangelion, while the other part of me was too inebriated to remember most of the movie. To this day I’ve been in more arguments about this movie than any other.
Excerpt: Buena película si eres fanático de las películas de monstruos japonesas. Con la ayuda de las computadoras se ha logrado que los monstruos se vean y se sientan creíbles. El 3D se ve muy bien. Pero se pudo haber visto mejor si las escenas fueran mejor elaboradas. La producción muy buena. Sólo siento que el guión pudo desarrollarse mejor.
Why such movies are not made using actual 3D cameras or techniques

Excerpt: It would be great great fun if hollywood can spend some extra bugs to make such movies using actual 3D cameras and techniques. I wish if there would be a remake for this movie in actual 3D. Besides that i still enjoyed it. A must buy BD.
Fantastic! What are you even reading this for, go see it already.

Summary: Pacific Rim is a stellar giant robot versus alien monsters film, but don't be fooled! It has an engaging plot and wicked characterization as well. I was particularly impressed by the fact that Mako Mori is a very well rounded female protagonist- not something you see very often in sci-fi action movies!
Summary: A great cast littered with action stars from the big screen and television. Elba, Day, Hunnam and Perlman come together nicely when under the direction of Guillermo del Toro, once again creating a sci-fi action world that comes to larger than life proportion on the big screen. A great combination of bone crushing action that has you in your seat backing the good guys to a hard fought victory, worth the watch better on the big screen or with serious sound to get lost in...
Pacific Rim goes bizerk with a great sense of wonder and action.

Summary: We all carry a great sense of wonder. It seems to hide away as we get older, but was always strong and persistent when we were children. We could sit down and really make something out of nothing physical, or tip our toy-box all over the floor and just go mad. Pacific Rim is Guillermo Del Toro at his most unleashed. He's been given the toys for his sandpit and has gone completely bonkers, but he has also created a sense of wonder from completely nothing.
Summary: I thoroughly enjoyed this film, despite the eye-strain given to me by my off-center seat in IMAX. It was never going to be Citizen Kane, but Del Toro did a fantastic job at keeping quite a simple concept into a compelling, driven, heart-racing film. (Or maybe it was just all those giant robot fighting games I played when I was 12 that nostalgia'd me all up in hurr).
