My husband and I really enjoyed the movie. It was very action packed. Definitely a movie to see in theaters and not waiting for it to come out on DVD (which is the norm for us)

(SOME SPOILERS) You really can't go wrong spending a ton of your budget on big machine and monster graphics, giving the movie as much appeal as King Kong vs Giant Squid. However, Pacific Rim's budget seemed to be limited. While much energy was spent making the Jaegers (the big robots built by humans to fight the race of enormous aliens, or Kaiju) look incredibly realistic, much less was spent on script writing and casting. Dialogue was often painful, not just because of poor acting (on everyone's part, it seemed, except for Rinko Kikuchi and Charlie Day) but forced script writing, including a forced romantic line from the main character that spilled the beans on the otherwise dubious ending and some random fluctuations in anger from Idris Elba's role. The story was very much a creative one, and the plot had some complexities in it, but I rate this movie "Go!" purely for the fact that two-manned Transformers/Gundams are fighting Godzilla in the best kind of way: realistically.

For what it was I thought it was a great movie. Cool fight scenes and who doesn't like a giant robot giving a giant monster a good old fashioned snotklap!!!

Not enough storyline.
Not enough background of how/where these godzillas came from.
Godzilla resurrected? Really. Not real creative.
Futuristic? Do you really imagine we would transport our technically marvelous future war machines with 6 Chinook helicopters, and drop them into the water from a few hundred feet in the air?
I know it is "Science Fiction" but think it through and make us ponder about the possibilities.
Think about it: we gain the ability to manipulate a 100+ yard tall, incredibly smart and strong robot by connecting 2 minds together as one, and it moves long distances using technology that is already 30+ years old????
Dark, dark, dark.......dark.
Fight scenes all the same. The best fight scene is hand to hand scene (no robots) in the barracks.
2:00 out of 2:15 is a fight scene.
WEAK attempt at romance plot.
Characters not human - stiff, not relate-able.
Sorry I went. I wonder what all the hype is about?????
