Pacific Rim (2013)

As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse. (IMDb)
The film does a good job at getting you immersed in its future world, with engaging plot-speak (aside from an eye-roll-inducing speech before the final battle) and great and huge alien vs. robot fight/destruction sequences throughout. Unfortunately, none of the human characters are particularly interesting–with the exception of the comedy-relief scientists–and the plot also feels thin, but with its entertaining action and slick setting, the movie is still an exciting and fun watch.
6.5/10 (Alright)



  1. But Joel, they faced the monsters that were at their door and they canceled the apocalypse. I sincerely hope you read that in Idris Elba’s voice.
