Movie Review: Pacific Rim

Ok, so you have alien attack and big awesome giant alien killing robots! What else do you want?? It’s true that it’s the same ‘OMG the world is ending’ story, but that’s not why we go watch these films, we watch them for the fight scenes, for the bump of adrenaline caused by all the awesomeness and of course a rocking soundtrack!

So, aliens crept out of a portal deep in the Pacific oceans, and to fight them, the humans built humungous robots that are run by two pilots each to defend Earth. To close the portal once and for all a retired fighter gathered all the Jaegers and their pilots for one final mission.

What is impressive about these robots was they use martial art compact style more than relying only on weapons, which gave us the viewers killer awesome scenes. I love the robots and their names. I mean one is called, Gipsy Danger. How cool is that!! Also I loved how simply evolved the technology is in this movie. I mean it’s set in 2020, which is 7 years from now, so we won’t be having cars that flies yet. Even though the robots can only be moved by two humans who will mentally connect through a drifting device. Yes, that’s so evolved, but it was done in a very subtle way that didn’t look over the top or too fake. It’s a real cool sci-fi idea!

Other than the fight scenes that got me on the edge of my seat, something else would make me want to watch this film again, Charlie Day as Dr. Newton Geiszler. He was crazy hilarious!!! A great casting choice! Not like some others, Rinko Kikuchi in her performance as Mako Mori. With all due respect, she was irritating!! I hate it when someone force the sadness out of them! Like, ‘I’m a hurt character, feel sorry for me’ bleeeh!!

So, yes it’s a clichéd idea with predictable twists, but it’s an awesome, funny and fun summer movie! You won’t regret watching this on the big screen!! It’s a make you feel good kind of movie! So go enjoy it, summer season is almost over!!

Next review, Despicable Me 2!
