SYNOPSIS/PLOT When great numbers of monsters, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, that are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and a new, untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi). Together, they are mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
PRO REVIEWS ----------------------------------------
"A staggeringly loud, action-packed FXtravaganza that's both a numbing and pretty entertaining example of its movie species (...) it also really (...) has an attractive cast" (Todd McCarthy: The Hollywood Reporter)
"Although assembled with consummate care and obsessive attention to visual detail, 'Pacific Rim' manages only fitful engagement and little in the way of real wonderment, suspense or terror" (Justin Chang: Variety)
"'Pacific Rim's' wafer-thin psychodrama and plot-generator dialogue provides little for the human component to get their teeth into (...) Rating: *** (out of five)" (Andrew Pulver: The Guardian)
"What pulls us over the rough spots is the mind meld between del Toro the artist and the child inside him. They both want to astonish us. Geeks everywhere, salute (...) Rating: *** (out of four)" (Peter Travers: Rolling Stone)
"'Pacific Rim', with its carefree blend of silliness and solemnity, is clearly the product of an ingenious and playful pop sensibility" (A. O. Scott: The New York Times)
"At first, watching 'Pacific Rim' feels like rediscovering a favourite childhood cartoon – but del Toro has flooded the project with such affection and artistry that, rather than smiling nostalgically, you find yourself enchanted all over again (...) Rating: ***** (out of five)" (Robbie Collin: Telegraph)
"'Pacific Rim' is big and dumb in a smart way" (Stephanie Zacharek: Village Voice)
"Del Toro is giving scope to a boyhood lust for mayhem, the multi-million-dollar equivalent of kicking over sandcastles and torturing insects. There is something infectiously juvenile in that (...) Rating: *** (out of five)" (Ian Nathan: Empire)
"There’s no shortage of brains, brawn, eye candy, wit and even some poetry in this epic battle between massive lizard-like monsters and 25-story-high robots operated by humans (...) Rating: **** (out of four)" (Lou Lumenick: New York Post)
"It is a ridiculously entertaining (...) monster-robot movie that plays like a gigantic version of that “Rock ’Em, Sock ’Em Robots” game from the 1960s, combined with the cheesy wonderfulness (...) of black-and-white Japanese monster movies from the 1950s" (Richard Roeper: Ebert & Roeper)
"It's closer to the hammering 'Transformers' aesthetic than expected. Yet the weirdness around the edges saves it from impersonality (...) Rating: *** (out of four)" (Michael Phillips: Chicago Tribune)
"The story's appeal is lost in all the fights between the monsters and robots (...) Rating: *1/2 (out of four)" (Claudia Puig: USA Today)
"If this is the best we can do in terms of movies - if something like this can speak to the soul of audiences - maybe we should just turn over the cameras and the equipment to the alien dinosaurs and see what they come up with" (Mick LaSalle: San Francisco Chronicle)
