Pacific Rim - Movie Synopsis & Plot

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

MOVIE REVIEW

When you have a sword, use a sword. When you have a ray-blasting weapon, use a ray-blasting weapon. But for God's sake, why oh why would you try to defeat city-destroying mutant monsters from another universe with only your fists? That's just one of the many ridiculous things in the ridiculous Pacific Rim, a mildly entertaining but surprisingly mediocre effort from director Guillermo del Toro.
