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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The film is basically a 10-year-old boy's fantasy with a $220-million budget.
