Reminded me of modern day Godzila! Was full of action, but the acting could have been better. The 3D effects could have been better as well. Not enough action flying into the viewer's face. Some of the action scenes were hard to focus on.

I am amazed at the ability of Guillermo del Toro to sustain continuous action for more than two hours! My 9-year-old grandson described the movies as "Full of fights and explosions the whole time! It was great!" And it was... My ears are still ringing! Excellent summer entertainment which pays homage to the Godzilla genre while being much more than just another monster movie. Go see it!

• Combat special effects were mostly believable and impactful, not patronizing like the zoomed in crap from the Transformers where u couldnt see what the heck was going on
• Scale was portrayed as epic most of the time
• Fairly decent acting from B level and below actors
Cons: (may have some spoilers)
• Jaegers running like they were human.... ugh yea right, please check the physics on that
• Less than a decade into the future, this tech, lol... cmon... maybe by 2100 we might have it
• A jaeger uses an oil tanker like it were an admantium sword... I dont think so, cmon, it just looked dumb, why was that necessary
• Main characters shoulda hooked up.... talk about a &$%@# tease
Great overall action movie with some badly written scientific inconsistencies, if u even notice... most wont so whatever.

Out of all the summer blockbusters this by far is the most fun I've had out of all of them! Also, this is the only IMAX 3D film so far that is worthy of it since the 3D isn't distracting at all and the IMAX complements a lot of the action sequences.
Don't expect this film to be award worthy but come in expecting a fun film with a simple plot, simple and easy-to-relate-to characters, and amazing action sequences. It's not the best acting but I must say Idris Elba was a standout for me in this film. Now as far as those crazy action sequences go? You will be blown away by the scale in which del Toro delivers them. Everything to me was shot just right, from the vantage points of where the Jaegers (robots) are to the Kaiju monsters, to the vantage point of the pilots controlling the Jaegers, to the control room. Everything just flowed very nicely and I looked forward to every action sequence and all were set up so nicely.
Let's just say I'll be seeing this movie again!
