Rated PG-13 Sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence throughout, and brief language
When legions of monstrous alien creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a deadly war began. To combat them, humans devised massive robots called Jaegers as weapons. Controlled simultaneously by two pilots, even the Jaegers proved nearly defenseless against the Kaiju. Now on the verge of defeat, mankind must turn to a washed-up former pilot and an untested trainee teamed in a seemingly obsolete Jaeger. These unlikely heroes are the last hope against a mounting apocalypse.
This was quite good. Decently paced and well made. Doesn't deliver much in the romance department, but hey, I think this was a movie mostly meant for guys anyway. I only wish it had more of a backstory to it, but it seemed to be one of those movies that's mainly just in-your-face action. Pretty good, though.
Consensus: Armed with amazing visual effects, Pacific Rim delivers edge-of-your-seat action. Definitely one for the guys, but some girls may like it as well. Could have had a little more personal aspects with the main characters and some backstory with them. I'll give it a 4.5 out of 5.
