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.

How many movies have we seen in which the 'Golden Gate Bridge' is
destroyed ? ....well, I haven't got an answer, however seems to me
it occurs during just about every disaster movie....and yes, if but
briefly 'Pacific Rim' joins that ''elite'' club.
The Film....Over-sized alien beings 'The Kaijus' begin to arrive on
earth arriving through a porthole below the waves of the 'Pacific'
Five major cities are destroyed before the military are able to combat
the new enemy.
The invasion continues, man has to come up with a monster of their own
....Giant Robots called 'Jaegers' controlled to do battle by two pilots
on board.
However, it seems this may not be enough to stop the 'Kaijus' coming,
the 'Jaegers' program seems too be failing, the world is on the verge
of defeat.
A former pilot is teamed up with an unlikely co-pilot to operate an
outdated 'Jaeger' to do battle.
This may well be man's last stand ahead of an ''almost'' certain alien
victory bringing about the end of human existence.
The visual effects which are indeed impressive make the movie well worth
watching,
The 2D and 3D imagery will almost certainly keep the film alive for viewing
pleasure.
Great picture and sound quality throughout.
A 3-Disc set which includes the usual commentary.........'Disk three' is all
about 'Special Features' with hours of content which includes,,,featurettes
providing in-depth looks at 'Kaijus' ....along with a look at 'Sets' 'Stunts'
'Sounds' 'Effects' and the Mythology of making the film....and so much more.

Riiiiiiight. Pacific Rim. The story of one woman's struggle to raise her children alone on the west coast of South America. No wait, that's not this film, that's something else. This film is about giant monsters emerging from the Pacific Ocean hell bent on destroying mankind. What would we do should such a thing occur I hear you ask? Why, we would create monsters of our own I tell you. Yes giant robots that can only be piloted by two people who must share a Spock-like mind meld to control the giant metal beastie. The whole thing is so absurdly sci-fi that it's impossible to hate. It's impossibe to hate much of the acting (I use the term loosely you understand). It's equally impossible to hate some of the distinctly dodgy SFX, which seem almost in homage to the great stop-go pics of the past. The beasties are categorised from 1 to 4; 1 being small(ish), 4 being a biggie. And wouldn't ya know it, at the film's climactic battle a, wait for it, hitherto unseen category 5 beatie appears. It's all so much fun that, even should you pop out mid-way through to make a cup of tea, go to the loo, turn off the sprinkler you left on in the garden at dinner time and put your son back to bed for the third time you will have missed nothing of consequence, simply because there is no single part of this film that is of any consequence. I loved it. Meryl Streep was mad to turn down this script (I may have made that bit up). But it's still only getting 3 stars.

A rather pedestrian film considering it is Robots fighting monsters and the least Del Toro film he has made to date.

Can't fault the special effects and the 3D on a 50 inch Plasma is very good.

It was all just a little underwhelming and it really does drag after the first ten minutes with a mid section of cliches until the solid last 30 minutes.

A friday night rental - if that exists any more rather than one to buy.

The biggest praise I can give Pacific Rim is the fact that I was grinning from ear to ear for the vast majority of it. Guillermo Del Toro's passion and flair are evident throughout and the attention to detail in both the Kaiju and Jaeger design deserves a lot of credit. Del Toro said his aim was to make you feel like an excited 12 year old again whilst watching Pacific Rim, he certainly succeeded.

I'm an intelligent, discerning woman aged 49, and normally I'd never go to see this kind of film, which I'd expect only teenage boys to enjoy. I'd usually choose a quality drama, an indie film, a chick flick or an occasional thriller. But...I caught this by chance....and to my surprise I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, to the extent that I'd probably have happily seen it twice. I thought it was far more entertaining throughout than this summer's Superman film, and certainly better than Brad Pitt's Zombies. I've even pre-ordered 2 DVDs - one for me, and one for my teenage nephews. 8 or 9 out of 10.

Absolutely terrible film both in terms of special effects and storyline; I really do not know why this film keeps getting good reviews. I'm a fan of the director but feel he let us down on this one...

Extremely disappointing. Too many special effects, not much plot but what there was was predictable, wooden performances. Didn't hold the interest at all.
