Movie Review: Pacific Rim

We all share memories through photos or
conversation, but what if you could do that and those memories and feelings would be like your own, connecting two people as if they were one? In July 2013, that technology was found and used to save the human race.

Directing this 131 minute action/adventure/fantasy/sci-fi is Guillermo del Toro.

Some of the people you'll see in this sci-rific adventure is: Charlie Hunnam as Raleigh Becket, Rinko Kikuchi as Mako Mori, Idris Elba as Stacker Pentecost, Charlie Day as Dr. Newton Geiszler, Burn Gorman as Gottlieb, Max Martini as Herc Hansen, Robert Kazinsky as Chuck Hansen, Clifton Collins Jr. as Ops Tendo Choi, Ron Perlman as Hannibal Chau, Robert Maillet as Lt. S. Kaidanovshy and Heather Doerksen as Lt. A. Kaidanovshy.

A fissure in the ocean floor becomes a doorway to another dimension. This new doorway allows the Kaiju, or strange beast, to cross over to our world where they attack and wreak havoc. Due the the constant attacks the world has united against their common foe. Through this unity the Jaegurs are
created, giant robots piloted by two people at the same time. The neural bridge, called the Drift, links the pilots minds together allowing each to control one side of the Jaegur in perfect sync. Now that humanity can fight these creatures, it's time figure out how to stop them once and for all, because each the attacks are coming closer together and every Kaiju is stronger than the last.

This was a really cool flick, with a talented line-up of cast members. I liked the two pilot system they threw into the story. The special effects were awesome, which made the fight scenes just fantastic to watch. It gave me that feeling of watching the old Godzilla movies, which was a bonus to me being a fan of giant monsters brawling.

It's rated PG 13 for violence and language.

4 stars for giant robots and monsters duking it out in awesome sci-fi fashion.
