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?

With his new film Pacific Rim, director Guillermo del Toro has done more than told a simple story- he’s created an entirely new sci-fi/fantasy world. It’s a cinematic universe where an inter-dimensional portal has ripped open on the floor of the ocean and has begun spilling out giant, horrific monsters called Kaiju that threaten to tear the world apart, leaving the human race to begin the construction of skyscraper-sized robots called Jaegers to fight them off.
