I ordered this movie on DVD on Thursday night and it arrived in Friday, loved the movie. I don't usually watch science fiction movies, but made an exception for this movie, and I'm so pleased I did!!
Pacific Rim is a 2013 American science fiction monster film on DVD, directed by Guillermo del Toro.
When an alien attack threatens the Earth's existence, giant robots piloted by humans are deployed to fight off the menace. When legions of monstrous creatures, 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, which 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 an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) – who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
Pacific Rim Movie Reviews
“Pacific Rim is, hands down, the blockbuster event of the summer — a titanic sci-fi action fantasy that has been invested, against all expectations, with a heart, a brain, and something approximating a soul.” Boston Globe
“Pacific Rim will tickle every Godzilla and Neon Genesis Evangelion loving fiber in your body. Guillermo del Toro has created a giant monster infested ecstasy that will send chills up your spine.” Examiner.com
“Guillermo del Toro is more than a filmmaker, he's a fantasy visionary with an outsized imagination and a fanatical specificity, a creator of out-of-this world universes carefully conceived down to the smallest detail. His particular gifts and passions are on display in the long-awaited Pacific Rim and the results are spectacular.” LA Times
“PACIFIC RIM transports you into a world that could have been conceived by a 12-year-old boy. This movie is a total kick ass nerdfest that has nothing but love for the material it's tackling. Del Toro has made the best blockbuster of the summer!” Film Geek central
“Michael Bay eat your heart out. Guillermo del Toro has made one bigger, louder, faster and more destructive than you. Pacific Rim is Transformers on steroids, Godzilla to the power of 10, The Avengers turbo-charged and bigger-suited than Iron Man” Urban Cinefile
“The biggest and most fun movie of summer 2013, Pacific Rim is staggeringly huge but massively satisfying.” Film4
“It is a ridiculously entertaining (and often just plain ridiculous) 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 (or should it be wonderful cheesiness?) of black-and-white Japanese monster movies from the 1950s.” Chicago Sun Times
“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.” Rolling Stone
“Pacific Rim is an awesome good time that will leave you cheering. It's one of the few perfect summer films in existence..Bask in its fun and glory.” Dread Central
