One of the best, if not THE BEST fairy tale/kaiju/robot/save the world movies I've ever seen.
Homage is paid to Godzilla and all the other Toho monsters if you know what to look for.
Be sure and see it in IMAX3D..and be prepared to be amazed!
No sex, gratuitous violence, not a lot of blood.....so take the kids if they love robots/kaiju!

• Combat special effects were mostly believable and impactful, not patronizing like the zoomed in crap from the Transformers where u couldnt see what the heck was going on
• Scale was portrayed as epic most of the time
• Fairly decent acting from B level and below actors
Cons: (may have some spoilers)
• Jaegers running like they were human.... ugh yea right, please check the physics on that
• Less than a decade into the future, this tech, lol... cmon... maybe by 2100 we might have it
• A jaeger uses an oil tanker like it were an admantium sword... I dont think so, cmon, it just looked dumb, why was that necessary
• Main characters shoulda hooked up.... talk about a &$%@# tease
Great overall action movie with some badly written scientific inconsistencies, if u even notice... most wont so whatever.

A Great film with a plausible plot. I took my eighteen year old and he enjoyed the film as well...A great time for all..Giant Monsters simply never go out of style. The jaegers were pretty bad ***and will certainly fuel the next film to the next level.

PACIFIC RIM = One of the Best Movies of This Year ! IMAX was the most amazing way to experience such a movie like this one !

Giant robots, check, giant kaiju, check, tons of awesome battles MEGA CHECK!!!!
Guillermo Del Toro has created the best Godzilla genre movie since the original black and white Godzilla.
This movie is a visual feast and the story, while very surface level action-e, is still a solid introduction to what I hope will be a franchise with multiple sequels.
The Pacific Rim universe is oozing with opportunities for expanded fiction.
After seeing it in 3D on both a standard and a IMAX screen I can say that the upgrade to IMAX is totally worth it!
Pacific Rim is a solid "Must Go!" from me!
