It was original, visually outstanding and was paced (action and plot) well. It was the best time I have honestly ever had at a movie. I saw it three times. Once in normal and twice in Imax 3-d. I've never gone to see a movie more than once before. It just hooked me.

This was one of the best movies I have seen in years. It met & exceeded my expectation. Really should see this on the big screen. It is well worth it.

Giant robots vs. giant monsters. Really that says it all. Yes, parts of the plot are very predictable. Yes, you can see things coming from miles away. Who cares? This movie is so much fun: the effects are cool and believable, the monsters are terrifying, loud, and violent, the heroes act cocky and testosterone-laden (yes, even the women).. and the comic relief bits are funny, scary, gross, and applause-worthy. Watching Pacific Rim in 3-d IMAX is like having an anime feature come to life all around you. Go see it.

This is clearly the best big action movie of the year! Del Toro is a brilliant visualist with an eclectic and original mind. Well worth seeing in IMAX and 3D.
If you enjoy action, quality work, and a powerful soundtrack do not miss this one.
Del Toro regular Ron Perlman is a hoot and helps anchor the film with a fun and gritty performance.
This director is always interesting to watch. Looking forward to his next (hopefully deeper) gift to movie goers.
A bit scary and overpowering for kids or dogs.

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!
