I just watched Pacific Rim and it was…
No joke about it, the movie—especially the effects—was really, really good! I really don’t have any major complaints about it, but I see that it’s only 72% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes (not bad, actually. They can get pretty harsh there :)) ). Check out this still from the movie:
Here’s a shot from the movie of the male and female leads — Charlie Hunnam as Raleigh Becket (…so that was his name!) and Rinko Kikuchi as Mako Mori — just after they sparred to test if they’re “drift compatible”. The film also stars Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, and Diego Klattenhoff.
The American sci-fi monster film was made under the direction of Guillermo del Toro, whom I’ve been a fan of since Pan’s Labyrith — a film which I watched back in 2007, and which made me lose sleep for a week!
BACK TO PACIFIC RIM: If you haven’t watched it yet, here’s the trailer — it’s guaranteed to drop jaws!
