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.

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.

An entertaining film if not an amazing one. It's not Del Toro's worst hour, but it's also not his finest.

Pacific Rim is what every summer blockbuster should be: loud, ridiculous fun, but with thought and effort behind all the special effects.

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.

With [Pacific Rim], Del Toro has proven he has what it takes to compete in a world full of Blockbuster directors and he knows how to entertain.

Provides plenty of spectacle, but the characters who inhabit it are, despite their Shakespearean airs, not vivid enough for you to care beyond the wow factor.

Rim is scary, smart and scientific, with humor weaved in throughout. The visual effects are stunningly believable and artistic in every scene.

Pacific Rim is a brilliant surprise. Its cheerful audaciousness will take you back to a time when blockbusters were original stories that filled you with glee and wonder.
March 8, 2018
The whole thing is so silly: the heroes are wooden, the concept is amoebic, even the title is a joke.

It is definitely a nerd film. If you're into this kind of stuff, you're going to love this movie. Outsiders...it might be harder.

As a tribute to the Godzilla/King Kong genre, Pacific Rim isn't too bad. But after seeing the Jurassic Park re-release a few months back, it is hard not to be reminded of what a summer blockbuster should be.

... things just exist. There's never any reason given, and there's no logical limit on what can be done.
August 17, 2017
The film is basically a 10-year-old boy's fantasy with a $220-million budget.

Pacific Rim may work best in its smaller moments, a testament to director Guillermo del Toro's ability to build worlds.

I expected the melding of horror and humor so singular to him, not the soulless and ultimately monotonous spectacle actually delivered.

Mythology is rife with giants. There are Greek Titans, Norse Jotuns, a race of giant humans that went extinct, Cyclops, Bigfoot-which giant mythology does 'Pacific Rim' tap?

Pacific Rim is the most shamelessly entertaining summer movie we've seen so far this year.
April 16, 2016
"Pacific Rim" puts the "disaster" in "disaster movie."

It's brilliant. I couldn't keep the smile off my face the whole way home.
