John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

It's del Toro's squarest, least interesting film. It's as if the sense of fun and wonder collapsed beneath the gargantuism of the budget, in an esthetic equivalent of the square-cube law that makes the story's monsters impossible in real life.

It's stupid but I liked it.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

Monster action with minor smarts...the fatigue factor sets in early, especially without much humor and only corny asides available to balance the onslaught.

It's the movie Transformers should have been, treating the lizard-brain appeal of a fight between humongous critters with the respect it deserves.

A movie that both distills and perfects the tradition from which it's drawn.

My inner 10-year old thought "Pacific Rim" was totally cool, engaging and entertaining. My current, outer 45-year old thinks it best not to think too hard about the plot.

Beyond the brink but an entertainment just the same. If you have the same reaction I did about the time issue, you may start thinking you'll never get home. But, once you do, you'll have a lot to talk about.

Guillermo del Toro delivers on the special effects but the plot is a little weak.

In many ways this is the best giant monster film ever made. And in many ways it should have been better.

Visually stunning, this example of spectacle over story is hampered by a terribly cliched script and poor performances

It is possible to applaud Pacific Rim for the efficacy of its business model while deploring the tale that has been engendered -- long, loud, dark, and very wet. You might as well watch the birth of an elephant.

The project is too simple-minded to take very seriously.

The film's visuals are so intoxicating that just living in the movie's world is entirely worthwhile, even if it's not the most dramatically compelling place to be.

What makes Pacific Rim work -- and work far better than it probably has any right to -- is the way del Toro embraces the movie's deliberately corny tone.

"This does lack a little soul, but it hardly matters, as the full-throttle, über-monstrous fun more than makes up for it."

PACIFIC RIM transports you into a world that could have been conceived by a 12-year-old boy. This movie is a total kick ass nerdfest that has nothing but love for the material it's tackling. Del Toro has made the best blockbuster of the summer!

Laramie Movie Scope

A mixture of popular action genres, with robots, mind-melding and monsters. There is a nice mix of elements. The heroes include a woman and two nerdy scientists. It is not just simple explosions, anger and testosterone.

As I watched Pacific Rim I could literally feel myself shedding IQ points the way Kate Hudson sheds a big lunch in the bathroom of the Beverly Hills Hotel.

What contemporary American audiences probably don't realize is how many movies today are being made in America with the foreign audience uppermost in mind.
