Pacific Rim

Pacific Rim(2013)

A moderately entertaining idea that seems like a combination of all of Toho Company's monster movies (Godzilla, Mothra, etc.), the Michael Bay Transformers movies, and Voltron. The script is laughable at the best of times and there's so little chemistry between the leads that the semi-romantic subplot between them feels torturous (and it isn't helped by the tacked on ending), but for the most part the movie stays strong throughout. It isn't until the last ten minutes that it all falls down and gets robbed of any dramatic impact. Still, it's a good ride that while it might not have any lasting impact, it will have you chuckling over the awesomeness involved.
