Pacific Rim is going to be quite a successful film regardless of how I feel about it. Honestly though, I’m not 100% sure how I feel about it. I went from loving this movie, to hating it, and back to loving it again several times a scene. So I’m going to go down the pros and the cons of this movie so you can decide if it sounds like something you would like.
Now for the cons, and while I only have two of them, they’re enormous!
- – The dialogue was unnatural, poorly written, and tacky as hell.
- – The story line was too condensed. Honestly they should have made this movie into a trilogy and expanded each of the acts. It honestly felt like an over excited 15 year old Kimmy Gibler was trying to tell the story. Basically, it was so sped up it was hard to make sense out of it.
- – I swear to God Beacham must have downloaded a template off the internet to write this script. I’m guessing the file was titled MichaelBayActionFilm.FDX. I can just see him plugging in characters, and locations, adding a little flare, and bam!

The truth is, when asked if this movie is worth your money, I’m going to say yes. It was quite fun, and while it won’t go down in my book of movies that changed my life, it was slightly more entertaining than frustrating. You won’t however, see me buying any of the action figures, video game, or watching the cartoon that I’m sure will be coming.
Overall Rating 6 out of 10
