I usually have nothing but disdain for these types of blockbusters but much to my surprise I have to admit I was thoroughly entertained by this film.
Let's face it, you're watching a movie about big robots bashing giant sea monsters and it does exactly what it says on the tin. Think Transformers and Godzilla combined - both truly dreadful watches in every possible sense yet Pacific Rim was fun, without the more annoying elements of the former flicks.
I hate picking holes in these absurd types of movies and god knows there are plenty in this one but one thing I still can't quite get my head around regarding the "plot" which didn't even make the slightest bit of sense by the film's own set of "rules & logic" -
The robots are having worsening results lately versus monsters so we'll stop making them altogether! instead we'll build a wall... yes, a wall! that should stop these things which can run through skyscrapers and demolish a city within minutes!
Give your brain the night off and watch the only ever entertaining episode of Power Rangers ever made.
