That rare live-action film that actually justifies catching it in 3-D.

This movie is like the grown up version giddy young boys on a playground, smashing their toys into each other, making explodey noises with their mouths. It's big, loud, there's not much more to it than that, and it is exactly as much fun as it sounds.

Del Toro has crafted a film that is much more than just the Godzilla versus Robotech summer blockbuster it would have been in lesser hands ... it may not be the greatest story del Toro has ever [told], it's ... better than most blockbusters have.

Del Toro creates a cinematic universe with its own rules that reaches the point of amazement with the explosive action sequences. [Full review in Spanish]

Story and cast isn't much, but doesn't have to be in this particular case.

Pacific Rim goes those classic B-movies one better, with giant, pilot-driven, twenty-five-story robots specifically designed to do battle with the mega-monsters.

Del Toro returns with Pacific Rim, the biggest, and perhaps dumbest, film in his oeuvre.
September 12, 2019
I loved the whole look of Pacific Rim...but it was the been-there-done-that feel to the story which really let me down, and the frequently dire dialogue.

Does the thought of nearly mountain-sized Transformers wailing away on Godzilla's uglier stepsisters with rocket punches and wrist swords excite you or do you have no idea what most of the words in the first half of this question mean?

[Ron] Perlman is a hoot, taffying out his scant screen time with another of his over-the-top portrayals.
June 18, 2019
It's very creative and very fun.

The love for these films is evident, and Del Toro makes us love them, too, through the sheer force of his enthusiasm.
April 10, 2019
Between some impressive visual battles and some bizarre comic relief from Charlie Day and Ron Pearlman, "Pacific Rim" evolves into a fun bit of summer fluff.
March 2, 2019
I went in expecting a big, dumb spectacle of an action movie and that's exactly what I got.
February 26, 2019
Cancel the summer movie apocalypse; del Toro is here to bail us out.

Pacific Rim is unlikely to get pulses racing or jaws dropping, but provides an enjoyable ride atop the shoulders of giants.
December 14, 2018
Pacific Rim is one of the few genre films that doesn't just use references as a shortcut, it makes something new within the framework of its inspirations.
November 6, 2018
If you spliced together Godzilla and Transformers and threw in a touch of the Vulcan mind meld, well, there you have it... [however] This has to be the best creature feature in years.
November 2, 2018
An entertaining film if not an amazing one. It's not Del Toro's worst hour, but it's also not his finest.
November 1, 2018
Writer/director Guillermo del Toro sets out to recapture the magic these films produced in Pacific Rim -- and he blows it out of the water. Literally.
