I expect fucking chaos, emo pilots, and several characters with really shitty relationships towards their parents that the aliens/monsters/enemies stand as allegories for.

That's that shit I do like.

I always cringe when Stringer Bell is speaking in his native funny talk, so that'll take some getting used to. But it looks like they absolutely crushed the fx work. Shit looks amazing.

that trailer is better than the entire Transformers series.

hate. hate. hate. hate. hate. hate.

I think ALL these movies look tight--- robot vs monster fight, Jaden vs monkeys fight, Cruise vs Morgan Freeman's sunglasses fight.

After Earth looked way better; it was the best trailer of all the 2013 action sci-fi flicks (Cruise, Star Trek 2.0 and this) shown before The Hobbit

30. "No chance this does better numbers than After Earth."
In response to Reply # 28


  

          

And I'm someone excited for both.

But After Earth has Will Smith, Jaden Smith, and effects.
Pacific Rim has Idris Elba, dude from SOA, and effects.

Though I absolutely love Guillermo Del Toro (Blade 2 is woefully underrated), and I think Shyamalan has about as many misses as hits (love three of them, hate three of them, indifferent on the other one), there is NO director that draws box office solely on name. Zero. Even Spielberg can't do it domestically, as Tintin showed. Directors mean absolutely nothing for box office reliability.

Stars and effects do matter.

Both films will make big money, I'm fairly certain.
But After Earth will make more.

The real debate should be After Earth vs. Oblivion, as Cruise still has drawing power. Cruise vs. Smith is far closer to a fair fight, though again, Smith is the favorite.

I get the sense from the After Earth trailer that Jaden is more of the star of this one than Will, that Will is the supporting role. Which may give Oblivion a fighting chance.

But again, Pacific Rim would have to be a huge critical success with an A+ Cinemascore to make more than After Earth. And After Earth would have to have horrifying bad critical response and a low CinemaScore (B or worse).

Funny that people bring up Avatar in regards to the After Earth trailer. That tells you about its money making potential right there.

Also Fandango said that it's outselling World War Z through that same point.

WB said they'd be happy with a 30 million dollar opening weekend? Really? They probably already mitigated that.

Giant Robo is the stoty thay ever made me care about 500 foot robots. Jaegerd look too big and humans too disconnected from the real fighting for me too care.

In response to Reply # 36


          

We were invaded, and then we started winning, but then we started losing, but then we didn't go away and kept fighting. Or something.

I've lowered my expectations big time on this one. I have a feeling that Del Toro's better at smaller films and creating intriguing worlds than a big action film.

I thought the "We were losing and then started winning, but then started losing so now we are REALLY coming together to fight" was odd since it seems like all they are doing is continuing to fight with the same robots.

But I guess that's what I should expect for what I'm guessing is going to be a big, stupid, but hopefully fun movie.

But apparently, we're still there. And none of the blockbuster trailers this year are bringing anything different to replace it so I think we might have it next year as well.

>Kanye Wests Praise for Pacific Rim Ignites Buzz

JULY 5, 2013 | 03:32PM PT
Leading videogame designer's endorsement also builds fan excitement

Despite the strict Warner Bros. embargo on reviews of the Guillermo del Toro monsters vs. robot pic Pacific Rim, its received some early Twitter endorsements: namely, from the controversial Kanye West.

The Yeezus artist was able to catch a screening of the movie, despite a new album and a new baby, and tweeted Thursday, Its easily one of my favorite movies of all time.

While Pacific Rim has been compared to Transformers and other movies of the genre, West disagrees with that sentiment.

This is not another Robot movie, he tweeted to his 9 million followers. Guillermo del Toro is a master.

Pacific Rim, starring Charlie Hunman, Rinko Kikuchi and Idris Elba, depicts a war between giant alien monsters (Kaiju) that threaten Earth and the human-piloted robots (Jaegers) built to fight them off. The $180 million picture has garnered mixed pre-release press, and its hard to tell whether the polarizing rappers input will hurt or help the film.

Wests tweets were retweeted over 5,000 times (as of Friday afternoon) and set off a flurry of reaction ranging from screenwriter @DayanBallwegs flabbergasted If Kanye West saves Pacific Rim? I just dont know where to go with that. to inevitable jokes like @Shaellas Ima let you finish but Pacific rim was one of Kanye Wests favorite movies of all time. OF ALLL TIIIMMEE. Some were put off by Wests endorsement but many said it would make them more likely to see the picture.

Thesp Ron Perlman, who appears in the picture as a dealer in black-market Kaiju organs, also responded to West via Twitter.

Need Kaiju parts, u get the fam discount! Perlman tweeted to West, referring to the monsters called the Kaiju in the movie. Kikuchi retweeted Wests praise.

Pacific Rim actor Robert Kazinsky said in a video interview, No big deal, its just Kanye, tongue firmly in cheek. Questionable decisions in most of his life, but in this case, I think Ill go with hes got excellent taste when it comes to films.

Pacific Rim also received an endorsement via Twitter from Hideo Kojima, vice president of Konami Digital Entertainment and the mind behind the wildly successful Metal Gear Solid videogame series. The game designer raved about the film in a string of eight tweets on Thursday.

This film is not simply a film to be respected, but most importantly, it let us dream the future of entertainment movies, he said. Pacific Rim is the ultimate otaku film that all of us had always been waiting for. Who are you, if you are Japanese and wont watch this?

Kojima, who is no stranger to giant robots, may be tapping into a key videogamer market for Pacific Rim. Internet forums have already responded to the review, with one Gamefaqs.com user writing on the websites forum, Kojima has said it, we must obey.

Pacific Rim opens July 12.

... Because every "critic with a goatee" will obviously call this the best film of the summer. That's been clear since the summer schedule solidified.

The real question: will the critical bonerfest have any impact at ALL on the public? I hope it will... but I'm not so sure.

No spoilers. I promise. Also, I got to interview del Toro after the screening. I'm surprised he remembered me from November.


What I miss from summer blockbusters is heart. I love Christopher Nolan, but ever since Batman Begins and to a further extent The Dark Knight, we have cynical summer blockbuster for a serious post-911 world.Thats why Pacific Rim, is the summer movie we all needed as even though its serious this movie is not a cynical as the blockbuster were used to. Its as if Guillermo del Toro made a live action manga/anime added that missing element, without being campy. And yes, as Kanye West said, this is not a giant robot movie. Its more than that.

After a mysterious portal open beneath the Pacific Ocean, giant monsters or Kaiju start to destroy our planet. We fight back with giant mechs called Jaegers" that are piloted by two people. After winning the war, we start to lose and mankind makes one last stand to save humanity and the planet.

For those saying these are giant robots and looks like a cross between Transformers and Godzilla please stop. Godzilla is definitely an inspiration but dont compare this to that travesty of a franchise that Michael Bay directs. These robots are really weapons and I would go further saying that theyre just giant suits of armor piloted by fearless warriors. Add to that that most robots have artificial intelligence. And every Kaiju has distinct features and powers that make them stand out from each other.

This is a story about the human struggle. Our trifecta of main characters each has a personal stake in this story. Raleigh Becket (played by Charlie Hunnam), Stacker Pentecost (played by Idris Elba), and Mako Mori (played by the cute Rinko Kikuchi) are the beating heart of this film. And its easy to relate to all three characters once the layers are peeled back showing their true nature over the course of the film. Aside from those three the rest of the cast bring their characters to life with such finesse as even the smaller secondary characters have motivations no matter how big or small. Charlie Day and Ron Perlman are standouts in this and really get to shine along with our core trifecta. Hopefully, after this film everyone will become a fan of Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam and Day, Ron Perlman, Rinko Kikuchi whose work Ive been following greatly over the years. These people have paid their dues and its their time to seriously blow up. And to Tom Cruise, you messed up by not doing this movie and doing Oblivion instead. But thats okay Idris Elba was the best choice.

Guillermo del Toro has crafted a fully fleshed out world with a scope thats every sense of the word epic. The fights are some of the best Ive seen in a while and had my eyes popping out of my head. The scale of the Jaegers and the monsters are incredible, as we watch cities get leveled in some of the best action sequences of the summer. Man of Steel did level Metropolis, but in that case it felt forced and totally unnecessary. Also, the emotion felt between two of the characters is more sincere than that forced kiss between Superman and Lois Lane. Thankfully del Toro didnt do that with the two characters here because it did seem like they were going to kiss. But yea, youre in the hands of a master of cinema and the film is impeccably paced, something I havent felt in a while. It doesnt leave with the feeling that its going on for too long or that it felt rushed. This is an adrenaline shot to the heart that keeps you going and leaves you exhilarated. I was dead tired when I saw this, and in the first five minutes I was wide awake. Travis Beechman and del Toros screenplay is sharp, thankfully not relying on too many clichs we see in most movies (mainstream and independent).

I also, have to give credit to Ramin Djawadis score which is seriously rousing. This dude is flexing his Game of Thrones muscles on this score to help bring out the size and scale. Tom Morellos solos are all over the score as well and they work when the fights are going on. Also, it was cool hearing Djawadi working with Ron Perlmans daughter Blake and RZA for a song over the credits called Drift (produded by Djawadi & RZA, performed by Blake & RZA, and written by all three).

I cant wait to see to this again. See it on the biggest and loudest theatre you can. The six story IMAX I saw this on this morning must have had the sound turned up to the highest possible level. The 3D is more than worth the price as its some of the best 3D Ive seen this year, as it fully immerses you in the film. Stick through the credits as theres a surprise.

78. "To have a even more fulfilling experience read the graphic novel"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

To quote Travis Beachams introduction People, after all, are what makes the best mythology feel truly sprawling and alive.Because, like I said, the story is in the world; not the other way around. This is why Pacific Rim and the prequel graphic novel Tales from Year Zero are so rich. This is a world about the human characters and their struggle and relationship with the people around them.

There are four stories in Tales from Year Zero, that give some background on the origin of the Jaegers, Stacker Pentecost (played by Idris Elba), K-Day (the day the first Kaji arrived in San Francisco), and finally Raleigh Becketts relationship with his brother intertwined with Stackers story. These, again, are all human stories with personal stakes for the main character in every story. These stories do not have a happy ending showing this is a real world, with real stakes and consequences.

What I love is that it gives some (further) background to Stacker. Hes one of my favorite characters and you really get inside his head to see what makes him tick. Hes a hard ass, but a hard ass that cares. This book gives you the detail as to why hes a hard ass. Hes a man whos lost so much.

There are also new characters, with stories just as heartbreaking. The Jaeger origin story, to me, is the best story in the book. At its core it is a love story that would play out in real life. The dynamic shifts between the male and female characters over the course of the story, which to me is great writing and something you rarely see in comics. This goes back to a conversation I was having the other day with people saying how easily people give up on relationship instead of trying to make them work and here both very reluctantly give up on each other.

It you want an even more rewarding experience into the world of Pacific Rim, then dive head first into this graphic novel. Even if you dont see the movie, Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero is more than worth a read.

PACIFIC RIM Movie Review: Saving The World, Saving The Summer

It's kaiju versus mech in a movie that epitomizes what blockbuster cinema can be.
PACIFIC RIM Movie Review: Saving The World, Saving The Summer

We remember being prey. Somewhere in some deep part of our brain is the collective racial memory of being a small mammal, cornered by something much bigger and toothier than us. Today were top of the food chain, but that small mammal is still there, and it makes us fascinated with the idea of our place in the current natural order being upset. It makes itself known not only in our interest in stories of humans becoming fodder for predators - Timothy Treadwell and his bears, the occasional media frenzy over shark attacks - but in our interest in stories of natural catastrophes, of earthquakes and enormous tornadoes, of elements of nature that dwarf us and remind us that, for all of our technology and smarts, were no match for a wind thats blowing fast enough.

Giant monsters - kaiju - are where those two elements meet in our fiction. We are to them in the food chain as ants are to us - a nuisance at the picnic. And like natural disasters they are an unstoppable force, engines of destruction that can only be survived. But all the best kaiju stories are the ones where, in the end, people figure out how to do more than survive. They figure out how to take the fight to the hurricane, and they figure out how to win.

Pacific Rim is the story of what happens when the winning stops.

In the near future giant monsters begin emerging from the depths of the Pacific Ocean. They rampage in our coastal cities; conventional weapons take literally days to defeat the beasts. Cities disappear into rubble before the kaiju can be stopped. As the situation appears to be more desperate - as the kaiju begin coming more frequently - a new technological initiative is created. Its the Jaeger program, and these giant mechs have the strength and firepower to go toe-to-toe with the kaiju, and to win.

That becomes the new status quo - the world is now a place where sometimes monsters rise from the waters and brave pilots in metal suits hundreds of feet tall punch them into submission. And for a while it works. It looks like humanity is winning. Then the tide begins to turn. The kaiju come more often, their frequency and size escalating. The Jaeger program suffers crippling defeats, and the monsters come faster than humanity can build new mechs.

This is the world where Pacific Rim, after a prologue, begins. Its a world on the verge of losing the greatest battle in human history. Its a world where people have begun to give up; rather than fight the monsters theyve decided to sink all their effort into massive coastal walls that - theoretically - can keep the monsters away from populated areas. Rather than stand up and take back the planet, humans have resigned themselves to being shut away in walled nations, ceding parts of the Earth to the beasts.

Raleigh Becket represents the state of humanity. Once a hotshot Jaeger pilot, hes been down and out for five years after a huge battle that all but destroyed his mech, Gipsy Danger, and killed his co-pilot - his brother, Yancy. The twist in Jaeger tech is that the machine is too big to be controlled by one pilot. Two pilots must mind-meld in what is known as The Drift, each operating one half of the robot, working in perfect unison to execute the moves and attacks that stop the kaiju from destroying our cities. But that means when Raleighs brother is killed in a battle off the coast of Alaska he feels it all - Yancys fear, pain and eventual disappearance. Burnt out, Raleigh now takes dangerous, menial jobs on the coastal wall, climbing thousands of feet and risking his life for a ration card.

But you know how this story goes. The Kaiju War isnt done with Raleigh. One day his old boss, Marshal Stacker Pentecost, shows up at Raleighs worksite. They need him back for one last mission. The big mission: this time theyre taking the fight to the Rift, the undersea dimensional portal from which kaiju are spewed. Theyre shutting it down, and Stacker needs Raleigh back, piloting the rebuilt Gipsy Danger.

Of course it isnt that simple. Humanity has tried destroying the Breach before, but its never worked. Pentecost is desperate now, as funding for the Jaeger program has been rescinded and what was once an operation with dozens of giant bots is now down to four mechs. This is the last chance to close that hole - if they can just figure out how to get it done.

Thats the first fifteen minutes or so of Pacific Rim. What follows is a profoundly epic story that also manages to stay profoundly human, as the remaining pilots and support staff of the Jaeger program overcome their differences and their issues to stand up and save the world. Its a square-jawed, straight arrow sort of story where even the hot-headed young Aussie pilot who tussles with Raleigh - he sees the older pilot as the sort of wash-out who has doomed the program - is, at heart, a hero.

Guillermo del Toro has achieved a feat of world building unseen on movie screens since Star Wars. This is a rich, full, detailed universe that lives at the very corner of the frame. Pacific Rim is set in the kind of fully realized world where you believe if the camera went down a different corridor or street, you would find a rich story populated with fascinating characters. There are sequences in Pacific Rim that have the same depth of construction as the Mos Eisley cantina scene in Star Wars, that have the sense of a place that existed before the camera turned on and will continue existing after our heroes have moved along.

If that was all Pacific Rim offered it would stand as a Star Wars for a new generation. But it has more than that. Its the rare modern blockbuster that does big scale action correctly. Every punch has momentum, every impact has weight, every step of the Jaegers and the kaiju is felt. The action, while often taking place at night, is clear and understandable. The stakes are always palpable and high, and the action is constantly thrilling. There are a number of enormous set pieces with one - a kaiju attack on Hong Kong - being one of the greatest action sequences of this century, not only in terms of visceral thrill but also storytelling quality. During my second viewing of the movie I sat behind a boy who looked to be about eight or nine, and he was involuntarily fist pumping during the entire scene.

That kid is the avowed target audience of Pacific Rim. We live in a world where comic book characters created for ten year olds are now the sole province of thirty year old misanthropes. Guillermo del Toro is looking to take action fantasy back to its original, and best, crowd. This is a movie designed frame by frame to make kids explode with excitement and imagination, and its a movie that will reactivate that purity in even old fogies. Pacific Rim makes you feel like a kid, not because its stupid (it isnt) or because its silly (it can be, but in the right way) but because it will fill you with the sort of awe and joy you had when you first saw Ray Harryhausens skeletons fight or Godzilla first trample Tokyo or the Millenium Falcon show up out of nowhere at the Death Star. While humanity is in dire straits in Pacific Rim this isnt some sort of Nolan-esque meditation on the futility of heroism or the failings of men - its a movie about triumph and hope and overcoming all odds. And for the ten year olds, its about how little people can stand up to even the biggest monsters.

Del Toro and screenwriter Travis Beacham have populated the dense world of Pacific Rim with a bunch of great characters. Im not normally one for Charlie Day, but his scientist character Newt Geizler is one of the highlights of the movie. He has a number of scenes with Ron Perlmans black market kaiju parts dealer Hannibal Chau (I wont spoil the origin of his name) that are at once hilarious and also deeply, powerfully world-building. In another movie this stuff would be comic relief; in Pacific Rim its the sort of stuff that could spin off into its own TV series or role playing game.

The pilots and crews of the Jaeger program have walked directly out of an anime. Head technician Tenso Choi (Clifton Collins Jr) has one of those rockabilly bouffants popular in certain Japanese animation. The Russian pilots, with their platinum hair, are as stylized as cartoons. The Australian pilots have a cute bulldog sidekick (dont worry, hes no Chim Chim). Each of these characters are a color in the larger spectrum of the human story of Pacific Rim, and theyre each applied with broad brushstokes. Again I come to the Star Wars comparison - in a just world were looking at a future where theres an anthology of short stories that delves into each of these characters and their histories. Pacific Rim is a movie that leaves you wanting more; its the rare modern movie that will send you looking for supplemental material so you can experience more of the world.

Those are the side characters. At the center of the story is Raleigh, played by Charlie Hunnam. Ive never been a Hunnam guy - his American accent remains unconvincing, even after many years on Sons of Anarchy - but he has the chops to play the sort of straight-backed hero this movie needs. Some will complain about a lack of complexity in Raleigh, but I found his basic decency and heroism refreshing. In a movie landscape where the heroes refuse the call every single time, where they need a personal revenge motivator to become heroes, where they have feet of clay and are constantly unsure of themselves, Raleigh is the rare hero doing it because it has to be done. His personal history with the kaiju doesnt motivate him to seek revenge - its the block that he must overcome to do his job right.

Hunnam has a tendency to get overwhelmed by the characters around him. To me hes the equivalent of Keith from Voltron - was that ever anyones favorite character? While Raleigh is the main character of Pacific Rim I would argue that its Stacker Pentecost who is the central character. Played with ultimate badass ferocity by Idris Elba, Pentecost is the driving force that keeps the Jaeger program together, is the tough leader who keeps the multinational pilot crew moving forward and is the driven tactician behind the last ditch effort to save the world. His character is filled with complexity, from his strange personal vulnerability to his relationship with Mako Mori, his assistant who is also the perfect companion to Drift with Raleigh in Gipsy Danger. Elba brings many shades to Pentecost, some of which he gets across with only a look while alone in an elevator.

Rinko Kikuchi is Mori, whose childhood experience in kaiju-devastated Tokyo presents the movies single most jaw-dropping sequence. Guillermo del Toro understands the scale with which hes working and this sequence, where young Mori is chased down city streets by a twenty-story tall monster, smacks you with that scale. Its also an emotionally shattering bit of filmmaking, the moment where you most understand the human toll of the wanton destruction wreaked by the kaiju. Its Pacific Rim in a nutshell: beautiful, sobering, thrilling.

Kikuchi is fine; like Hunnam her character gets slightly overwhelmed by the movies plethora of colorful side characters. My biggest positive critique of Pacific Rim is that I wanted more of everything - more of the characters, more of the world, more of the monsters and more of the Jaegers - while my biggest negative critique is that these two central characters never quite take command of the movie. The Drift presents a great device to allow the two to get to know each other, but the movie ends up having them sitting over lunch having a long talk about their feelings. Its one of Pacific Rims few wrong notes - the opportunity to show rather than tell is there (and is used to some extent; Raleigh experiences Moris Tokyo trauma through the Drift), so why tell?

Still, thats a minor complaint. Luke and Leia were never my favorite Star Wars characters either. And even if these arent the most gripping leads, the characters remain strong and interesting. I never wanted the movie to get away from Mori and Raleigh. I was in love with Pentecost and Geizler and Chau and Choi and the others, but I was happy to stay with the story of these two leads.

What makes Pacific Rim work isnt one character or Jaeger or kaiju (although I think well all have our favorites for sure), its the way del Toro and Beacham bring them all together. This is a movie about teamwork, about sacrifice and about getting past the bullshit to do something important and difficult. Its a rousing movie about the way human beings can set their mind to something and accomplish it. Yeah, weve fucked up. Yeah, weve made mistakes. But weve also done incredible things, performed impossible feats and tamed some of the very forces of nature. When were at our worst we can be destructive, divisive and horrible. When were at our best we can change the course of the world with our will.

Pacific Rim is a movie about that is, thrillingly, upliftingly about that. And it also has giant mechs punching the shit out of giant monsters. This is what blockbuster movies should be.

With a little Matrix and Last Samurai lol. My brother and I couldn't stop talking about how the "jagers" were rips (or homages) to the old 70s japanese robot cartoons we grew up on, particularly Daimos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_ZmW0TSVMw

i liked it better than Iron Man 3 and ALL of the Transformers movies. It got me geeked about how the Voltron movie will look on the big screen.

yes, there were holes in the plot but it's my fav. summer movie so far.

It played out like a feature-length version of the toy battles I had when I was a youngin

And that's not a diss

The battles were what we paid to see, and they were as good as advertised

Charlie Day and ol' boy were cool as the buffonish scientists, and Idris was cool though it would have been nice to see Stacker in action before the final fight, like when he talks about the mission that gave him cancer (I don't recall seeing it)

And Ron Perlman was fantastically over-the-top

Oh, you want to know what I thought about Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kinkuchi?

*cough*

So yeah, man, this was fun...

the plot and script were very basic but the sense of spectacle was great. I enjoyed it but my 16yr old nephew was left very cold by it his opinion was it was better than iron man 3 but not as good as man of steel.

I imagine that demographic plays a significant role in blockbusteryness.

In any event i wish i'd seen it in 3D for the first time in a while i really enjoyed the cgi in a blockbuster.

It's an epic sci-fi adventure yarn. Charlie Hunnan's accent is distracting but the rest of the cast more than makes up for it. I might prefer Hellboy 2 but I'm almost definitely seeing this again so my opinion could change.

The fights were awesome. It was incredibly ridiculous. Couldnt' have wanted more from it.

It was also very well paced, it did not feel long at all and for me not to get up and take a piss all movie says a lot lol.

I think a lot of folks won't enjoy it honestly. Even if you have a tiny bit of nerd in you tho, you will love the hell out of this.

...yeah...yeah...THAT was funfunFUN dammit!!!

simple as that. genuine fun. best time i've had at movies so far this summer by far.

and GORGEOUSly shot! whew that movie is GOOD LOOKING!

As is the adorable Rinko Kikuchi who played Mako...lovely...what red blooded fella wouldnt come outta this with a crush on her?

Idris held it down for sure, dude is a star any way you look at it. Charlie Day and Burn Gorman were good fun too. I thought the guy who played the Aussie pops did a good job as well.

best acting in my book goes easily to Mana Ashida...the young actress who plays young Mako. seriously, she nailed it in what screen-time she had...awesome.

Story was fine, not too heavy...but not too light either. it was...'just right' for what this movie is supposed to be ALL about pretty much...(which is, in my mind, a BIG old heap of Fun and Fantastic with just a dash of Fear)...it was supposed to spectacle to behold and it absolutely was....

...did i mention this was a gorgeous film to watch? (saw it in IMAX 3D btw....sound was mindblowing too )....

oh damn, i almost forgot...LOVED the 'theme' music too. i was humming that shit on the ride home...

big fun people, big fun....worth yer bucks for sure....

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

The creature design and most of the jaeger design was really interesting and fun. Wish all of the Jaegers had the bizarre touches of the russian one.

The fights were exciting. For someone that loves his creatures and mechanics so much, kind of surprised Del Toro didn't let us get a better look at them, but you could see enough to have a general sense of who was doing what most of the time.

Liked the Godzilla-themed music used during the creature rampage.

Plot, script and characters were mediocre to bad. Elba and Day gave good performances considering.

In lots of ways felt like a very close cousin to Starship Troopers, and manages to be bizarrely engrossing in the same ways, and knowingly cheesy in the same way, too. Not a huge fan of that tone, but better than the dead-serious tone of other blockbusters like Man of Steel and the worst parts of the Nolan Batman films. Hence the good by comparison comment.

Was hoping that Del Toro would elevate it some but it's basically a very expensive big stupid movie and nothing remotely more. Couple of cool fights. Almost zero story or character development. One of those films that, if it's in your wheelhouse, you'll forgive its flaws but if not... well, then there's not much there.

Never thought I'd see the girl from Babel again, much less in a big role in a blockbuster.

The sound effects were equally as impressive as the visuals.

The pacing was excellent, I never looked at my watch.

I thought the sound effects were even better than the visuals (which were often disorientating). you felt like you were right there.

the pacing was probably the most surprising part. I knew the running time and was waiting for a grind, but it never happened. which is shocking, since the characters were such cut-outs.

these characters are boilerplate, and the story, script, and acting aren't strong. the main character, in particular, is terrible.

the eye candy is great, but not THAT great. or maybe it is, but i just didn't care enough about the world they created that i didn't care if it got saved.

111. "outstanding visuals/meh story and characters"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I wished they didn't film most of the movie in blackness/in the dark because it would have been cool to see the kaiju or more of them during the day...it was still great though.

I hope Del Toro gets some technical awards and oscar nominations seriously.

the story? was thin and just wasn't strong enough to match up with the visuals.

the characters were paper thin but shout out to the cast for doing the most with what they got.

it's a shame because the version I read of this there was way more character development and you cared for the characters more...

I dig Charlie Hunnam...I just don't think he's leading man material. I struggled to be invested in his character and he didn't always pop on the screen which was most of the movie.

Riko Kinkuchi was great though...but damn they had her crying nearly every 10 minutes...i was like damn, I know her eyes be hurtin and shit.

the little girl that played her as a child....GREAT! she ran with what little she had.

Charlie Day and Ron Pearlman: Charlie Day really was NOT funny. Ron Pearlman is Ron....so yea.

Idris Elba: I really wish folk would stop saying he was so good in this; he didn't have much to do at all save for bark orders, glare and people and look constipated when he was trying to *NOT* be emotional. yea, he's most definitely a better choice than Tom Cruise, but not really.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

But enjoyable enough.

Loved the visual design. The aesthetic went perfect with the world. For all the Transformers comparisons, I saw more Ridley Scott on screen than anything.

The dialogue made me cringe. I don't have the energy for ironic enjoyment anymore. To be honest, I never had the energy. Shit was not a pleasure to listen to.

(the spoiler part)

My favorite part of the movie was the memory sequence with Baby Mako being hunted by the kaiju. That felt like Pan's Labyrinth del Toro on a huge scale and I loved it. Would have loved to see a two hour movie about a little girl surviving in a kaiju ravaged city waiting to be rescued by jaegers, instead of the Independence Day arc we got instead.

-30-
You know it's drama, but it sound real good.

same here. he wouldn't have gotten $190 million to make that version, but the "living-in-your-memories" premise was one of the highlights of the movie.

116. "Main character was trash"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

he added nothing but the hero white guy element. i didn't care about him at all.

didn't care for the forced comedy between the two doctors. i wanted a slightly more serious tone.

Mako should have been the main character. they should have started w/kaiju coming through and crushing the buildings, idris saving baby mako, and develop from there. but i know the suits wouldn't let a japanese actress and a black actor lead this movie.

i wanted to see the chinese bols more.

very disappointed 6.5/10

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

certainly augmented the experience for me.

Didn't care about any of the main characters. Charlie and Perlman's scenes were the high spots of the film. Gorman low key beasted as well. I kept imagining lee evans from something about mary when he was on screen.

Cinematography was dope (the only reason I cared about this movie in the first place). Del Toro definitely presented a unique visual perspective that I'm not sure I've seen before - think Cloverfield minus the shitty camera. Though during some of the fight sequences, I had no clue wtf was going on.

Monsters/aliens were overly dumb (as always) and hyper aggressive. I swear these aliens need some anger management training on their home planets.

Overall good movie if you don't care about plot/character development.

The fights in this film were waaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy easier to follow than fights in most big-budget action films. I thought they were pretty much perfect.

had the same problem

couldn't see what has happening & couldn't care less after awhile either

when they showed the first kaiju come across the bridge in broad daylight it looked awesome

most of the fights @ night were tough to follow

125. "2-D or 3-D?"
In response to Reply # 0


          

I generally don't like 3d, because of the brightness issues, and because I wear glasses and the 3-D glasses are usually so small that they become uncomfortable over my glasses.

Does this have to be seen in 3-D?

Any advice?

better.

the 3D made certain things seem compressed and smashed in for me, and the depth just looked off in other scenes.

it also made certain action scenes that were already challenging to follow even harder to make out.

lastly, since so much of the action is shot at night, the dimming effect of the glasses really doesn't do the movie any favors.


All that being said though:

one thing that looks AWESOME in 3D are the huge indoor spaces featured in the movie, like this construction site and the place where they work on the robots.

2D it is. (If I got some Avatar level comments then 3-D might have been in the cards.)

..not great, but certainly good enough to earn praise (and solid box office #s)

this film certainly had its flaws (over-acting by the ENTIRE cast), but its still entertaining. while i was a bit disappointed in the vets (elba, hunnam, perlman, & martini), i'm placing most of that fault on the del toro.

that and a weak script.

the premise was fine. its not that this story needed a ton of details and dialogue, but its appears they spent most of their efforts on cgi. in the end, the good guy saves the world & gets the girl. isn't that what all summer blockbusters are about?

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

THE GOOD:

- just stellar execution of concept. i mean, robots vs. monsters is a pretty generic idea that could go a million ways, most of them terrible. but they packed this with so much more awesome than any two-hour movie should contain, almost to the point where there's no room for a sequel. love that they held nothing back. the jaeger swinging a battleship like a bat... i mean, just too much awesome to even discuss.

- the sequence where mako blacks out into the childhood memory of being chased by a kaiju was pure eye candy. very pan's labyrinth. loved it.

- when that one thing happened in hong kong where the kaiju picked up gipsy danger and did that awesome thing that i won't spoil, my inner geek busted a nut. also, i busted a nut.

THE GRIPES:

- i wish the san fran scene was an actual scene. as overdone as large-scale attacks on american cities are, i still wanted to see it. also would've been cool just to see a daylight action scene, as they were pretty few.

- the scene where charlie from it's always sunny drifts with the aliens and tells stringer their plan was such a direct rip-off of ID4, it was amazing. right down to the alien motivation. almost a word-for-word rip-off of the bill pullman scene. can't anyone think of a better reason for aliens to invade us? also, isn't sending huge monsters to knock stuff over just about the least efficient way possible to exterminate the human race?

- i hate 3D. i don't know why i saw it in 3D. it's like watching a movie with sunglasses on. a movie where most of the action occurs at night. so needless to say, there are several scenes where there's robots and monsters flailing around and you just have no idea what you're looking at. don't see it in 3D.

Saw it in 3D at a Dolby atmos equipped theater at the Arclight...holeeeeee shit. My jaw literally dropped when the first Kaiju attacking the bridge was shown. Atmos was made for this type of sound.

The character development was pretty much what I expected. My main gripe was in terms of the repetitive Kaiju design...wish there was some more variety like we saw with the gorilla-esque one in Tokyo.

Enjoyed the hell out of the film, worth every penny.

and i just don't understand the weak character development critique at all. meeko and jax had depth...

also its cool for MANY white actors to play the "cold as ice, get the military job done by any means, sacrificial hero" role/schtick, but when Idris does it (and well) all of the sudden its a problem and he aint get much to work with?

The basic logic is, sure the Breach might have been blown up, but all the kaiju weren't. They've drifted with humans, who think the threat is gone. And now they have obliterated Jaeger parts to work with. Wouldn't be surprised if PR2 takes place on both sides of the new breach. Maybe multiple breaches.

Theres hope for a Pacific Rim sequel yet! Though Guillermo del Toros original tentpole scored a respectableif underwhelming$37 million opening domestically, the effects-heavy pic is unlikely to hit the $100 million benchmark here in the states. However, given its international cast and the universal language of monsters and robots beating the ever-living shit out of each other, the long-game for Pacific Rim always hinged on it playing well overseasand indeed it has. The pics foreign box office total currently stands at $140 million, and the film just opened in China to a record-breaking $9 million on Wednesday. Thats the highest debut ever for a Warner Bros. film in China, and Deadline reports that the result of the performance is that Pacific Rim will likely have a sequel.

While the expansive (and gorgeous) visual effects for Pacific Rim meant that the budget for the tentpole sat somewhere between $180-$220 million, the films worldwide box office total currently stands at $224 million. Though that budget doesnt include the cost of marketing, Pacific Rims success at the box office overseas means that there will now be a built-in audience for the PR brand, making the prospects of greenlighting a sequel that much more attractive.

This is excellent news for fans of del Toro and screenwriter Travis Beachams creation, as the duo crafted an incredibly intricate and colorful world that demands to be explored further. Quite a while ago, Legendary Entertainment enlisted the two to start drafting an outline and screenplay for a Pacific Rim sequel, so there are no doubt plenty of ideas in place for where the follow-up can go. Del Toro previously hinted that Dr. Geiszler (Charlie Day) drifting with a kajiu brain is something that will be explored further in the sequel, but mostly Im just eager to dive back into the world of Pacific Rim.

Pacific Rim 2 has yet to receive an official greenlight and we havent heard anything from Legendary or Warner Bros. with regards to the follow-up, but the first films box office performance in China certainly bodes well. Whether del Toro will be able to return and direct the follow-up is unclear, however. His schedule in the near future is pretty stacked, as he starts filming the pilot to The Strain in September, then moves to directing his next feature film Crimson Peak early next year. Moreover, del Toro recently told us that his next film after Crimson Peak looks like it will be ready to go directly after he finishes up with the gothic romance pic, so its entirely possible that he could just be writing and producing Pacific Rim 2 and not directing. That being said, its still very early days.

What do you think, folks? What do you want to see from a Pacific Rim sequel?

I might go see it again which is what I usually do when I'm this far off from the consensus.

But for now I just thought it was cheesy and by the numbers. The sequence with the little girl being hunted by the Jaiku though, was beautiful and pretty haunting. It was like an incredibly vivid nightmare.

The acting was mediocre. The only one having any fun was Ron Pearlman and that's because he was hamming it up.

The character development was flat out bad.

The robots were like Transformer rejects and most of them went down so quickly that I wanted to root for the monsters.

Only the monsters were generic too with meh designs so it wasn't even about just watching them wreck shit.

The only parts I really liked was the 'dream' sequence with the little girl running from the monster, and the one with the monster getting batted with a battleship.

And that second part was already in the trailer.

I guess I'd see a sequel, if they fixed this up with robots that don't suck and better looking monsters...oh and maybe actors that can act.
