Pacific Rim (Guillermo Del Toro – 2013) A-

Pacific Rim is a fantastic and very entertaining summer blockbuster, especially if you watch it with your 10 year old son. It was precisely what I expected from it. Great action sequences, perfectly setup “plot” and really good monster-giant robot CGI. I have plot in quotes there because really the story is ludicrous and insane, but I really like that the movie does not seem to take itself too seriously or bother with a lot of subtext and reflection. We have huge well-realized monsters from the sea that are demolishing cities and we make enormous robots to defeat them.It seems that Pacific Rim is exactly the labor of love movie that Del Toro wanted to make and it worked for me.
