Great action...taking the theme from dozens of monster movies out of the past and modernizing them with a new angle. Lots of action...definitely not a "chick" flick.

I've seen quite a few 3D movies this last few months and this I the first worthy of the extra price. It's campy, it's over the top, but just good entertainment.

I haven't seen an IMAX movie since Middle School, and I graduated High School 3yrs ago. I have a friend that saw this, and he said it was a really good movie. I had a few extra dollars, so I decided to watch it in IMAX (why not, right?). I have to say, never before has a movie kept me on the edge of my seat for so long, that I eat 2 large tubs of popcorn by myself! The experience was AMAZING, and the movie...... Well lets just say, I wanna do it again!

Reading some of the negative reviews, it's clear that some people expect way too much from a movie about giant robots fighting giant monsters. Sure, the characters are a little one dimensional and the storyline is somewhat predictable. On the other hand, it's one of THE BEST MOVIES I HAVE SEEN IN YEARS. Totally fun, totally over the top, totally spectacular.
I love a good intellectual and aesthetic challenge as much as the next guy. But you can't have Blade Runner every day. For straight sci fi & fantasy eye candy, this can't be beat... especially in IMAX-3D mode. Forget Iron Man, Transformers, Avatar, etc. Pacific Rim is the new standard for this kinda movie.
Also: Charlie Day steals the show. Always Sunny fans will appreciate.

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.
