(not a full review)
So, I’ve really been rooting for this movie. Now that I’ve seen it, I’m rooting for it more than ever. So you guys get a little reminder to take you into the weekend.
In a summer of sequels, reboots, and remakes, Pacific Rim stands as the lone megabudget action movie that’s actually based around an original story. Guillermo del Toro is a nerd favorite, sure, but that’s because he’s a man with a crazy amount of passion for everything he does, whether that be a dark art film or a massive summer tentpole.
Pacific Rim will give you your money’s worth like no other blockbuster this year. I can’t guarantee you’ll like it, of course, but I can nearly guarantee you won’t see a movie more loved by its creator this year. Nor will you find a more fully-realized world than Pacific Rim’s 2020 A.D. Nor will you see a more outrageous action scene than its Battle for Hong Kong.
This movie is MASSIVELY entertaining.
Seriously, go see it.
