Pacific Rim Review

Comparisons with Michael Bay‘s Transformers franchise are inevitable and they’re legitimate too. It seems critics have been more forgiving of a film of this propensity because Guillermo del Toro is behind the camera. Complaining about the Transformers franchise then preaching and praising this one is perplexing when they’re much the same robot. Only this time it’s bigger robots piloted by humanity against Kaijus which have torn through a tectonic plate causing a portal from their world to ours. Transformers isn’t that bad, the second is dreadful but with good choreography and the third is better but still not perfect, granted. It suffers from dialogue issues, bad characters and stiff performances but is then adorned in mass CGI destruction. The only difference that can be seen here is there are giant alien monsters.
