I saw this movie sometime this week because of the two main actors, Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba. The preview looked attractive enough so I decided to go in for it and I’m happy to say I was not disappointed at all.

The action was on point. The story-flow was good, role-playing was amazing  So if you are looking for great entertainment and a little something to wow you, this is the movie for you.

Pacific Rim tells the story of the Kaiju, monstrous creatures rising from the sea and invading the earth. This leads to the beginning of a war that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To deal with the giant Kaiju, Jaegers were devised. These Jaegers are a special type of weapon, massive robots 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.

I actually commend the director for this movie. From an unbiased, stand-alone movie point of view, this film does an incredible job of being exciting from beginning to end. My hands really are itching for a period when I’ll give something less than 70 but I haven’t gotten the opportunity to.


For this, I give an 82. Ah-may-zing!

So maybe you should see this movie next time you’re at the cinemas okay? And do well to tell me how it was when you do!




70 – 100 : HAYY! You should see this movie as soon as you can. It is so ah-may-zing and I’m this close to finding flaws

60 – 69 : Beautiful movie. A few flings here and there but the flings are quite few compared to the wonderful elements

50 – 59 : Average. The film is just in between. Balance between the flings in the movie and the good parts.

40 – 49 : I won’t advise you to spend your money on this but you just might like a few things

0 – 39 : Epic fail, thank you.
