Blu-Ray Review: Pacific Rim


Guillermo del Toro's "Pacific Rim" is a special effects filled popcorn movie that will satisfy  your Sci-Fi jones for one viewing and one viewing only.  

The story is basic to say the least and there are few surprises so viewers probably won't come back for repeat viewings.  

If you want to save space on your Blu-Ray shelf and have not yet seen "Pacific Rim" then I recommend renting it and saving your money for a more deserving purchase.


Drumroll please...  6 out of 10 drumsticks!!!

SYNOPSIS
In “Pacific Rim,” legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, have started rising from the sea, beginning a war that takes millions of lives and consumes 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.
