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!

If you grew up watching Voltron or Godzilla as a kid, you owe it to yourself to watch this movie. The pace in the film is steady enough that you get characterization, action and suspense without losing the flow of the film. Action scenes are well choreographed so that you know exactly what is happening every moment of the film. Seriously great effort by director Guillermo Del Toro. He hit this one out of the park!

You like action? You like mecha? You like giant monsters? Go see this movie! Once it starts you won't be able to look away until the end.

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 movie was over simplistic, illogical, and cheesy as hell. I LOVED it. The visuals are incredible, and had me gasping. And the story made just enough sense to pull me into the world Del Toro had created. I loved the action scenes, and even some of the characters, despite the fact that they were largely one dimensional and underdeveloped. It's not a Oscar worthy film by any means, but it is fun as hell for anyone who's ever loved robots and monsters.
