This movie is most likely shit, which is no surprise considering who the director is. His only good movie is Pan's Labyrinth, and only because he managed to write something good and filmed it independently. Hollywood would've ruined it, and dude is hot garbage outside of that one movie.

It looks real interesting. Its not quite the kaiju element for people that are old enough to have seen those original films Jiger (Monster X), Gamera (my favorite), Rodan, MechaGodzilla, Gigan, Mothra, Ultraman etc. I will watch.

I hope everyone saw the prequel of Atlantic Rim before they see Pacific Rim so the story makes more sense and its clearer!



Atlantic Rim is one of the worse movies that was ever created!

*of all of the del toro films. I've only seen Pan's Labyringht, Hellboy1 & 2, and Blade2...always liked Guillermo del Toro ...went to watch the film because of del Toro..his comic con pressers are legendary. Everytime I listen to the director's "track" of his movie..he gives quite the insight (his humour suits me..not for everbody). That said, movie did not disapoint

I think he suffers from being to Paul MacCartney-ish, very sappy.

My admiration for him is due to his genuine and shameless love for his projects that's very childlike and almost innocent. I think directors get either to jaded or become too full of themselves at times.


this. at the bolded

addendum
, can't beleive it cost 190Million to make; to put in perspective, dark knight rises was 250Mill ..i may not have the full story. But damnn they got alot of mileage out that and than some.

exactly. if we absolutely needed to we could even use tactical nukes.
this should be the least of your complaints about a sci-fi film.

Its a movie just to enjoy the visual effects. The story wasn't that good but its obvious this isnt a movie that you go for acting or story.

If you are person that needs substance in any form in a movie dont waste your time.

It was 10x's better than Atlantic rim.

I didnt see it that way. The kaiju is the backdrop not really a homage IMHO. Original Kaiju everything else is kind of the backdrop.

depends on how you see it. it's alot closer to the original Gojira movie then a Destroy all Monsters or Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla movie.

sequel confirmed

Hey Pacific Rim fans! Loved Pacific Rim FOLLOW and want more Kaiju action? Well it’s coming our way. Director Guillermo del Toro has been asked many things about a sequel and he decided to spill some beans. He confirmed that Warner Bros. has allowed he and his team to start writing a sequel, which is currently being worked on. He also said:

”I’ll tell you a couple of things. We will have Gipsy 2.0 for sure. Second thing is you’re gonna see a merging of Kaiju and Jaeger. And that is quite special.”


Del Toro also said that a lot of the deleted scenes from the movie hinted at possible plot lines for a sequel. Pacific Rim ended with a huge showdown underwater and went through the portal and into the Kaiju world. He referred to that sequence when he went on saying…

”Just think about it for a second. We sent Gipsy to the other side, right? It exploded, but whatever remains stays there.”
Referring to ‘drifting’, the psychological process through which Jaeger pilots team up with each other to manoeuver their giant machines, he highlighted another plot point that might come into play in a sequel:

”The main idea that we’re bouncing off is the fact that Newt drifted with a Kaiju brain, and all Kaiju brains are connected. We say that. They are like a hive mentality. So, you know, draw your own conclusions. We’ve drifted with a Kaiju brain. Well, then start riffing on that and you’ll get to something.

So what do you think about the sequel? Do you like del Toro’s ideas in the script? What do you think of his plot points? What do you want to see in the sequel? Comment below, let me know!

kaiju/jaegar hybrids...awesome!

Basically this movie is for you if you think if it's something you'd have wanted made. If it's not or you need to be convinced, it's not. For someone like me who always wanted a Giant Robot fighting Kaiju movie, it was great fun.

I have all the toys so far, all six. They are sitting right here.

Well five are here because two are the same robot and that just wouldn't make sense to both be there at the same time.

This was by far my least favorite movie I saw in theaters in 2013 (and I saw Hangover III).
