Pacific Rim Reviews
Inspiring to hear his influences too. Just love any creator with passion.
Earth has been invaded by giant Godzilla-like creatures from another dimension through a "rift" in the floor of the Pacific Ocean. Humans quickly learned that conventional weapons (like aircraft carriers, battleships, and jet fighters) were of no use, so they decided to build giant fighting robots, each driven by a pair of telepathically linked pilots. Within seven years of the first attack, we have a small army of these fighting machines. My country can't build a single conventional battleship in seven years because of politics and budgets, but somehow this movie wants us to believe we could invent from scratch and perfect waterproof robots, brain connection technology, and anti-alien walls. And the most effective way to kill aliens is to punch them repeatedly with giant robot fists, because bombs and missiles just aren't violent enough.
The fights are cool. The pilots are suitably heroic but flawed (in a Top Gun sort of way). The visual style is a blend of Blade Runner, Aliens, Godzilla, and Transformers. It was just too over the top for me, and I can't recommend it to anyone.
I recognize how stupid it is, but...does that really mean it can't be good. The movie looks great, has an amazing soundtrack, and also features some good performances. It's a lot of fun, and worth your time.
This Certainly no masterpiece but it is one of my favourite robot films
i have seen in a while, This is way better than Transformers.
