Pacific Rim

Pacific Rim(2013)

If you're a fan of director del Toro, it's honestly a little difficult to watch such a great talent dilute his usual nuanced excellence to something so chaotic and bombastic. Listening to Beacham try to unnecessarily give depth to the "Transformers vs Godzilla" plot also seems laughable, not to mention his uncanny ability to write characters with no dimension. Surprisingly though, Pacific Rim rim manages to transcend its inadequacies thanks to the spectacle and distraction of its visceral visual effects, and its proficiency in maintaining a level of enthusiastic enjoyment throughout.
