This movie was the movie we wish they could have made when we were kids; better graphics and better acting, Definitely anime influences but certainly unique in its own right. This is one of those movies that you want to see in IMAX 3D. It really represents the cross over genera that is happening due to the Internet being a medium of combining story telling styles from across the globe. I can't wait to see more movies like this mix.

The only reason I'm giving this movie a "go" rating is b/c is was a good 3D IMAX experience. Besides entertaining special effects it really wasn't that great. Pretty much had B movie type casting. Overall i was entertained but probably won't see this movie again.

This movie is a remake of Independence Day with Will Smith. That movie I watch whenever it comes on TV because I thoroughly enjoy it. Pacific Rim does not come up to the level of its predecessor. It's not as funny or as clever. The CG effects in Pacific Rim are better but everything else is lacking. The characters are all quite shallow and unbelievable to me. As a source of entertainment for those wishing to spend a couple of hours brain dead, this is the proper vehicle.

This is a movie I only went to see for my son who is 10, but I have to admit, this movie is one of the best Action SciFi movies I have EVER seen! So fantastic with amazing visual effects and honestly, some real good acting! Sooooo very impressed! I would actually pay to see it again!

Such a beautiful film, it will tax the bandwidth of your optical nerves! It also finally gives a high quality rendition to the Mecha Anime people have been watching for years such as Gundam Wing and Genesis Evangelion, but to the next level - I think this will spawn a while new category of summer blockbusters and even TV series now that the public idea of what is possible has been expanded.
