I felt like a kid again throughout the whole movie. And yet it has it's rich, deep story, and adrenaline fueled action sequences to hydrate your matured palette. WIth that said, this movie is for all ages. Kids will enjoy the big screen action of giant mechs fighting giant monsters. And adults will be able to enjoy it just as much. Incredibly well done by an artisan director. del Toro strikes again!!

It's big, it's loud, it has some interesting touches. You can almost smell the producer's anticipation of a merchandising bonanza. But the bottom line is that Pacific Rim is a movie about giant robots fighting giant alien monsters. If that idea strikes you as entertaining, you'll probably like this flick. Otherwise, maybe you'd rather see a movie about a hirsute guy with an adamantium skeleton.

If you spend any money on an IMAX 3D film this summer (or year), spend it on Pacific Rim. This film was by far one of the best I’ve seen this summer. Knowing only that the movie was essentially about aliens versus robots, I was skeptical. But I walked out so impressed!
I can not say one bad thing about this film. It has everything you can possibly want in a movie, aliens, robots, big battle scenes, great special effects and hot guys! It also has a bit of humor thanks to Day.
The IMAX 3D is entirely worth it. As many know, I am not a fan of wasting money on the 3D versions, but this was just a fun ride. I felt as if I was inside one of the robots. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time, as I couldn’t figure out how it would end. Something very rare in films these days.
So far, this is leading my list of the best film of the summer.

Well thought out movie with some of the most visually stunning effects I've seen in years. In short, if you liked Transformers 1, you'll love this way more. Great characters, designs and killer fight scenes. Check it out in IMAX 3D if you can.

this movie is over the top fun. the action sequences are great. It is a cross between Godzilla on steroids and Robotech on HGH. Kids will definitely enjoy it, mine was mesmerized by the jaegers and the Kaiji.
If you can, watch it in IMAX 3D. Movie becomes more immersive.
