Del Toro appealing to the child in all of us!!,
This review is from: Pacific Rim [DVD]  (DVD)
A pot pourri of ideas from Transformers, Battleship, Iron Man, Godzilla, Independence Day and Matrix Revolutions, this shouldn't work at all. But, distilled through the kaleidoscope imagination of director Guillermo Del Toro and some amazing CGI effects, this is slam-bang action and excitement from first frame to last. Was initially dubious about buying this but I have a high regard for Del Toro and was not disappointed. This is the director really letting his hair down and having fun.
