Pacific Rim: The reason why I love giant robots!

Let's fight back with giant robots!

Before I start this review of Pacific Rim let me give you a few disclaimers. First one, I love giant robots. Always have and always will love them! Disclaimer number two, Giant robots are awesome. Finally disclaimer number three, I love giant robots.

What do you do when aliens attack Earth from an undersea portal? You build giant robot to fight them of course. That is pretty much the storyline for Pacific Rim. Let’s be honest with each other, this is not the most ridiculous story line you have heard (it’s not some kid running around trying to get the girl with the help of giant robots from outer space after all).

When I first heard about Cowboys & Aliens I thought it was a ridiculous idea. Had the writers run out of things to write about? I’m not sure if I could come with another ridiculous idea other than Cowboys & Aliens. After seeing the movie though, I was totally shocked at how good it was.

The story follows Jake Lonergan (Daniel Craig) waking up in the middle of the desert and not remembering anything. The only thing he has on him is an odd iron bracelet and a picture of a lady in the dirt next to him. Now we follow Jake’s quest to find out what in the world is going on. You didn’t really expect me to tell you the whole story right? That’s the point of watching a movie!

The one thing I will tell you about this movie is that it is (Read more…)
