Del Toro is like Joss Whedon except he's a better director

I get that they were going for an anime tone in this film but i still think it failed on that point. It's like great giant robots, if only i could give two shits about ANYTHING else in this film.

I mean seriously between the plot and characters of this film or those of Transformers.... kinda boring cliches all around. the only difference is they were likely deliberate in Pacific Rim. Great so you made it willingly stupid.

it wasn't anything like transformers. the only serious problem with the film was the 3D version, which was total shit visually. Something about the CGI rendering didn't translate well.

some people go to movies about giant fictional robots fighting giant fictional monsters and afterwards they complain that the movie is unrealistic.

almost like it's fiction or that it's based on cartoons or something

i dunno, the art direction and visuals in any gillermo del toro movie are going to be approx 100x more awesome than any run of the mill bayesque blockbuster.

also it has idris elba and charlie day in it

I mainly thought all the characters were completely uninteresting. And there were a few cringe worthy moments. It's nice to have giant mechs fighting monsters but if i don't care why it's happening or if they die or live then it's a lot less interesting. And let's face it it wasn't the most amazing of action scenes once you get past the fact it's giant robots fighting giant monsters.....in too much darkness and water on top of it.


I'm really not sure why Del toro is getting a pass on this when it's at best just a inch less dumb then Michael Bay's Transformers..........(well ok the one with like the ghetto Autobots was a lot stupider than this)

at one point i thought i felt a plot twist coming along, and then it didn't happen and i was pretty disappointed because it would've been awesome

also that line about "that's where the dinosaurs came from" made me laugh so hard i basically couldn't suspend disbelief afterwards

I enjoyed it. Its just fun. Balanced cheese with cool geeky action and violence and with bad acting. Like hellboy. I'm excited for 2. Something that doesn't take itself too serious.

There is still hope for Hellboy 3. Ron Pearlman continues to lobby for it.

but you had no problem suspending it for 300ft tall robots and giant trans dimensional monsters that appear from the ocean

All i'm saying is you're all fucking geeks.


And when i'm calling you geeks, you've got a problem.

And yeah i leke Del toro alright but didn't care for this. It was his worst film since Blade II.

correct

i know more about dinosaurs than i do about theoretical physics or the engineering considerations related to building giant robots, so my threshold for hypothetical silliness is correspondingly lower

also they just threw it in there pointlessly and nothing in the film was contingent upon it or reinforced by it. spanner

Giant robots are boring. Androids are fascinating.
