Pacific Rim Review. Pleasant Surprise

Pacific Rim Review
By: Nicolas Souza

Big Action, Bigger Robots

Please welcome guest review Nicolas Souza. Nicolas will be reviewing movie from time to time.


Giant monsters, huge robots, and a decent story holding it all together; this is the easiest way to explain Pacific Rim. This summer action blockbuster wonderfully delivers all of that, but doesn’t blow you away.


Fans of giant monsters and robots will not leave the theater disappointed. The action scenes between the two are fantastic. On par with the action in other giant robot movies like Transformers, I believe Pacific Rim is slightly better. This is due to the limit of monsters on screen at once. With only a few monsters or robots fighting at once, there is no need to cut from fight to fight. This gives more time to the wonderfully designed Jaegers, German for hunter, and Kaiju, giant monsters.


Director Guillermo del Torro (Pan’s Labyrinth) assembles a human cast that fills its role nicely for a movie that’s main stars are the Jaegers. Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) is a good male lead that you will cheer for. Idris Elba (Prometheus) is the stern commander that won’t be crossed. My favorite character comes in Dr. Newton Geiszler, played by Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses). This high-strung scientist provides well-timed comedic relief, showing that the film isn’t taking itself too lightly.


The film seems to come at the end of a longer story. We get the beginning when the Kaiju first make landing, destroying most of San Francisco. Then we thrust forward in time to meet Raleigh Becket (Hunnam) and his brother. They are sent to the coast of Alaska to protect it from an incoming Kauji attack. After the first of many great Jaeger and Kauji clashes, Raleigh is left wounded and devastated. Another time jump, and we arrive to see the closing of the Jaeger program. Stacker Pentecost (Elda) must now scrape together a team of derelict Jaegers and Jaeger pilots. Recruiting Becket, along with three of the only Jaeger crews left in the world, they devise a plan to seal the rift the Kaiju are coming from.


At the top of most monster movie fan’s lists, Pacific Rim is a pleasant surprise for other moviegoers. The late conversion to 3D doesn’t add too much to the film. I’m not the biggest fan of 3D, but there are several small details that I actually enjoyed in 3D. This movie screams to be seen in IMAX. The action is too big to be fully enjoyed in the standard format.

Pacific Rim is rated PG-13 and has a running time of 2 hours 11 minutes. It will be released in IMAX 3D, RealD 3D, and standard formats on July 12
