Visually, this movie is great! And it has its fair share of action! Lot of cool effects and plenty of viewing time of robots (operated by humans) fighting aliens. I also liked the concept of creating giant mechanical beasts to protect the world from monstrous alien beats who were not on Earth by mistake. This film was quite the looker! Also, I think that this is the type of movie that is meant to be seen in a theater, on a huge screen, with surround sound.
If you prefer movies with a satisfying story line or character development, then this movie is not for you!

The epitome of a rock 'em sock 'em robot vs. monsters sci-fi movie. not much of a plot or romance to get in the way of why you come to see this movie in the first place ... to watch robots fight monsters. it's the perfect father and son movie. the boys and I loved it. I'm simply the awesomest dad in the world (my sons words not mine)!

Saw this film on the recommendation of a friend who had seen it three times and I admit I wasn't disappointed! Pacific Rim has some great action/FX and an original enough story that it kept me intrigued. Decent acting and some hot lead actors, plus welcome comic relief here and there make this an enjoyable escapist movie experience for most people who dig the big monster/action blockbusters.

The only actor in this movie was Charlie Day, who was awesome, so if the robots weren't fighting and Charlie Day wasn't in the picture, it was pretty mediocre. If the robots were fighting it was great. If Charlie Day was part of the scene AND the robots were fighting it was epic.

I enjoy a man movie as much as the next guy but ultimately it was hard to decipher what was going on during fight sequences. It was clear that it was monsters vs monsters but the camera was in too close throughout most of the fights. My 12yr old loved it though. If you have a young boy at home, they'll think it was awesome but it certainly not worth the price of admission...
