Guillermo del Toro brings the audience a unique take on the monster film with this sci-fi production. Charlie Hunnam stars as a washed-out controller and pilot of a series of robots called Jaegers, which are constructed after Earth is invaded by a species of giant monsters also known as the Kaijus. Rinko Kikuchi co-stars as a trainee whom Hunnam is psychically and mentally paired with in order to pilot the last ray of hope which is a decommissioned Jaeger assigned to stop the Kaijus from ending the world.
Pacific Rim is one of those films that doesn't require great acting or a decent plot what it may lack in that category it will definitely make up for it with the amounts of action it produces. The monsters were well crafted and the futuristic look of Hong Kong was extremely detailed. The visuals were so beautiful looking which they contained bright and vibrant colors with a dark background I wish I seen it in IMAX 3D. Pacific Rim is what a summer blockbuster should be it did not disappoint.
