Adam's Review of Pacific Rim
An omage to the King of the Monster find, Guillermo Del Toro pulled off a fresh moderate interpretation filled with destruction, action and robots that put the Transformers to shame. Amazing visuals all around from the settings to the flying limbs and organs of the Kaiju, which is what they call the monsters in this film. I also got an Independence Day vibe out of this movie as certain plot details keep calling back to that 1996 blockbuster. I was not disappointed by this at all. I would file this film under the category American Otaku.
