Absolutely a fine way to spend 2 1/2 hours on a thrill ride that takes you way beyond where we've gone before. I totally disliked "TRANSFORMERS" and its offspring, but PR is so much more there really should be no comparison. Casting scores high and the visual effects are almost unbelievable. I'm a "show me" movie fan that prefers a strong story, good cinematography, sound, and professional performances... PACIFIC RIM caught me off guard by being a most entertaining cinema pleasure. My son (43) and grandson (17) were in attendance with me (78,) and we were unanimous in our "thumbs up". IT'S A HOOT!

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?????

About the only thing as bad as the writing is the acting. Not even the wonderful Idris Alba could save this film. Trite and predictable, even the gargantuan monsters and mechanical heroes got boring after the first fight scene. The children will enjoy but they'll be just as happy with the $1.20 Red Box. Booo

Was very good from a cinematic perspective. The storyline was very Gozdzilla-esque, but on a futuristic-global level (Monsters wanting to destroy earth, but a larger-than-life super-force saves the day). The acting was surprisingly spot-on and with plenty of "eye-candy". Definitely a good one to see on a boring rainy Sunday.
