Pacific Rim (2013)
RJG Rating- 95
As monsters rise up from the pacific floor ,humans build robots to defend themselves.
Starring- Charlie Hunnam,Idris Elba,Rinko Kikuchi
Director- Guillermo del Toro
The cast is led by Charlie Hunnam ,who plays the lead role.He is most famous for his Sons of Anarchy TV show role.Charlie does a good job and is convincing enough to carry the movie forward.Idris Elba delivers a solid supporting role.His dialogues are powerful and it raises the level of certain scenes.Rinko Kikuchi as Mako is another great addition.It takes some getting used to with the lead actors ,as they werent easy to connect to in the beginning.But over the duration of the movie ,every single character ends up impressing you.
The story for Pacific Rim is wild.Its one thats deeply rooted into the stereotypical Hollywood monster movies.Large Monsters vs Robots sounds something so kiddish.But thats where you have to wake up and actually see whats being served.This isnt one of the usual crap CGI movies.This is something really really great.The concept is one thats pretty heavy.In the span of 5-10 min ,a prologue is given.The prologue is so interesting that in my opinion they can easily make 2 prequels to Pacific Rim.The story for Pacific Rim is like the closing chapter of the futuristic world Toro has created.
Guillermo Del Toro does a fantastic job with Pacific Rim.The movie was intense from start to finish and literally had me at the edge of my seat.The world he created is amazing.He brings the best out of the cast ,giving everyone a chance to shine.The pacing of the movie was fast from start to finish.Toro is well known for creating monsters and his work on Pacific Rim is another feather to his cap.
The visual effects were...MIND BLOWING! This is how you should create monster movies.Wow! The sight of these HUGE creatures and the equally large Robots were visually stunning.And when you have them fight each other?Jaw Dropping!The action sequences were truly superb.Supported by a solid score by Ramin Djawadi and the excellent cinematography ,every scene creates an impact.
Pacific Rim isnt a movie that has some big message or will change the way you think.Its not that type of movie.Its the type of movie thats all about satisfying you with action packed scenes ,this is the core pillar of a summer blockbuster.But still ,it has a very good story to support these epic fights and it gives you a sense of wonder ,watching all this.
Overall ,Pacific Rim is a MUST WATCH ,for action lovers.Its definitely one of my favorite movies of this year!
Visual Effects- 5/5
