PACIFIC RIM Movie Review




So regardless if you are a colossal monster (Kaiju), a giant robot of sorts (Jaeger), or just a regular movie goer, this movie hits the ground running. It is fast paced and action packed to say the least and that pretty much sums it all up. This movie is to be taken at face value, nothing more and nothing less. It is eye candy for action buffs. It is intense and elaborate. The special effects are just as colossal as the Kaiju and Jaegers. It truly is a spectacle of sight and sound. For this alone it is worth the watch but do it cautiously with reasonable expectations because this movie is not a story for the ages, nor is it a dramatic masterpiece. I mean, the story is okay considering the genre, and there is some drama, but this type of movie is meant to entertain via special effects and action. The rest is just secondary. In other words, there is plenty of cheesiness. It is best summed up as a new age Godzilla, Hong Kong and all. And just like the classic Godzilla films are cinematic treasures in their own right, so could this one be someday, maybe, in the future, possibly . . . nah, I doubt it. But it is a fun movie for what it is. READ FULL REVIEW >>
