Pacific Rim Synopsis

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume 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.

The Rim trailer is pretty funny. I laughed at the futuristic Altoids that block cancer. But Rim is such a big, fat in-on-the-joke endeavor that it can’t be slapped down to size by a few swipes at its “credibility.” It’s a damn blockbuster about robots punching monsters in the face.

To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Pacific Rim Ticket To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Pacific Rim Ticket
Giant robots vs. giant monsters. That's how Guillermo del Toro has been selling his sci-fi epic Pacific Rim since it was first announced, and that's surely the logic that went into putting it in 3D. When you're paying to see giant things smash each other, why wouldn't you pay for the extra dimension? But not all giant robots are created alike, and not all films that seem perfect for 3D at first actually wind up making the most of it. So which is Pacific Rim?
