Pacific Rim – Review

As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.

305 Magazine was lucky enough to view the screening of Pacific Rim, release July 12th. Pacific Rim is directed by one of the industries best Guillermo Del Toro staring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, and a slew of others. The film takes you to the future where Earths greatest threat is a legion of monsters known as the Kaiju. They have waged war with Earth and every living thing in it. Mankind’s only hope is to band together and fight.


The humans answer to the Kaiju invasion is called Jaegers. Fully armed robots controlled by humans. It’s 3D done right! Pacific Rim is a great ride from beginning to end was a good time with some romance, comedy, and a lot of action. If you’re a sci0fi fan then there is no reason NOT to enjoy this film.


Guillermo De Toro known for having great sets and amazing visuals didn’t let down with this production. I was glad to see Ron Perlman in the movie, he’s great. I’ll keep it short and simple and end this review with: Make it a point to watch Pacific Rim in the theater and stay after the movie to catch an extra scene after the initial credits.

Side note/rant:

If a Voltron movie were to ever come out Pacific Rim would be the blueprint for it. From how the ‘drivers’ link with the machines to how they maneuver them. Pacific Rim answers many of the “How do we…” questions that would come with a Voltron type of movie. At least that’s the initial thought after seeing this.

On another note, one thing I didn’t understand was one of the individuals that hosted the screening said, via social net, that Pacific Rim is not a good movie… Did you even watch the movie?!? Who hosts and hypes up a movie that they don’t like? Who does that? Well it’s not the first time I’ve noticed this but he is building an infamous reputation for pulling this kind of Skip Bayless move but its ok.
